lateral lip elevation
Full lips are a key element of a beautiful face. Unfortunately, most of us are not born with them, and those who once had full lips may find their lips diminish and change shape over the years. The corners of the mouth begin to droop, the cupids bow (v-shaped area of the top lip) flattens, and vertical wrinkles begin to appear, causing your lipstick to smear.
The good news is that you can restore and enhance this area to achieve beautiful, full, sexy lips. The procedures are quick and safe, and the results are natural, beautiful and long-lasting!
Lateral Lip Elevation (LLE) can permanently lift the down-turned corners of the mouth. The LLE is done using local numbing medications for this 30 minute procedure.
There is a minimal incision at the edge of the lip line at each corner of the mouth. This will permanently correct that tired, angry look that commonly appears as we age at the corners of the mouth.
It is common for one or more small treatments to accompany the LLE, such as Juvéderm®, Chemical Peels, eMatrix™ and ProFractional™ Laser to achieve the optimal result.
There is minimal downtime. You can be back to work in 1 – 7 days and wear make-up and lipstick in 6 days.
