Benefits of Lip Lift Surgery
For the ideal candidate, a Lip Lift is an excellent surgical option for those wanting to alter the shape and appearance of their top lip. It is a great permanent procedure for those who wish to enjoy these Lip Lift benefits:
- Effectively combat a common sign of aging where the area between the nostrils and upper lip (the philtrum) loses volume and becomes longer than it once was
- Exposes more of the red of the top lip (the vermillion), giving your lips a natural and overall fuller appearance
- Enhancing a smile that is hidden by the top lip, giving your smile a more striking presence
- Adjusting any asymmetry in the upper lip to add balance and proportion to your smile and face
Those who enjoy the benefits of Lip Fillers may also be an ideal candidate for Lip Lift Surgery, depending on some factors. Discuss this with your injector, or one of our knowledgeable patient care managers to determine if a Lip Lift is right for you.
What’s Covered in Your Pre-Consultation
Step 1: Request Your Complimentary Pre-Consultation Session with the 8 West Clinic Team
A pre-consultation session is a complimentary service that is required for anyone considering Lip Lift Surgery. In your pre-consultation with a Patient Care Manager, they will conduct a photo review with yourself and Dr. Buonassisi on your behalf to confirm that you are a candidate for the procedure. They will also discuss the surgery cost, timeline, process as well as any other options that Dr. Buonassisi may have suggested achieving your desired results.
Step 2: Schedule Your Consultation with Dr. Buonassisi
Meet Dr. Buonassisi in person (or online if you are an out-of-town patient) for expectations setting. The surgical consultation is by far the most important part of the cosmetic surgery process because this is the communication tool that helps explain what can be achieved in surgery.
You may ask Dr. Buonassisi to share real patient Before and After photos to help illustrate what can be achieved with the particular surgery you are discussing. This is also your opportunity to ask him any questions.
Learn More with a Pre-Consultation
The decision to proceed with Lip Lift surgery should be made with the utmost level of care and attention. While it can be exciting to think about how you may look with a Lip Lift, it is important to be informed about both the risks and benefits of surgery.
