Your smile reflects your personality, so it’s important to keep your smile as youthful and vibrant as possible. Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics is pleased to offer a corner lip lift procedure, which is designed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, raise the upper lip, and provide a younger-looking smile for years to come.
The Cosmetic Surgery Trend
Cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity, and it includes everything from simple Botox injections to implants. A corner lip lift differs in that while it is surgical, it is one of the simplest surgeries that can have a dramatic effect. As you age, the corners of your mouth will naturally begin to turn down due to environmental factors, the effects of gravity, and the loss of collagen in your skin. A corner lift lip is designed to reverse these effects by turning the corners of the mouth up slightly.
A Subtle, Yet Effective Procedure
A corner lip lift can be done with local anesthesia and takes about 30 minutes. It requires “pinning” the corners of the lip with two layers of stitches, the outermost of which is removed in about five days. Some swelling and minimal bruising is to be expected, but when compared to other procedures that can have similar results, the recovery time is considered minimal. Patients can resume wearing makeup once the tiny, almost unnoticeable incision has healed fully, and they should be able to see the full results of the procedure in seven to 10 days, once the swelling has dissipated.
30 Minutes to a Brand New You
When you look in the mirror and see your reflection frowning back at you, even if you aren’t really frowning at all, it can be quite bothersome. Over time, the fine lines and wrinkles associated with those drooping corners can become deeper and more pronounced. In just 30 minutes in Dr. Mardirossian’s office, it’s possible to walk away with not only an uplifted smile, but also an uplifted mood and a more youthful, happy appearance.
Candidates for a corner lip lift vary, and that’s why it’s so important to consult with a trusted, experienced plastic surgeon to learn more about how the procedure can help transform not only the way you feel, but also the way you look.
