Atlanta Lip Lift at
Oculus Plastic Surgery

Full lips are always in vogue. With fillers, you can temporarily plump your lips to a kissable pucker, but you may prefer something longer-lasting with less maintenance.

At Oculus Plastic Surgery, Dr. Harvey "Chip" Cole, III, MD, FACS, provides lip lifts to Atlanta patients looking to enhance the width, contour, and prominence of the upper lip. As people become “wiser” (aging), gravity continues to pull downward. Youthful smiles show the upper teeth, aged smiles show the lower teeth. An angel wing lip lift allows the upper lip to return back to its more proportion to show the upper teeth once again.

Pucker Up

What is a Lip Lift?

A lip lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of the top lip by repositioning the tissue so that more of the natural area of coloration, called the vermilion, is visible.

From start to end, the procedure usually takes less than an hour and is performed under local anesthetic or sometimes sedation. The procedure does two things: it increases the prominence of the vermillion border (the line where the darker tissue of the lip meets the surrounding skin); it shortens the vertical distance between the center of the nose and the center of the upper lip (called the philtrum). It's accomplished by removing a wedge of tissue from under the nose, which lifts the top lip. Again, no lip fillers or implants are used. This is a 100% natural procedure with no fillers or implants or fat transfer.

What are the Benefits of a Lip Lift?

The lasting effects of a lip lift are undeniably appealing. There's no need for touch-ups or refills as there would be with other lip augmentation methods. A lip lift:

  • Improves facial harmony
  • Adds fullness to the top lip by raising the skin there
  • Offers a noticeable improvement without the need for regular upkeep
  • Re-establishes a beautiful smile with upper teeth shown again

The degree of lift and tiny alterations in the Cupid's bow can be tailored by adjusting the size and shape of the excision. A lip lift is effective for patients who have noticed their upper lips becoming thinner and can also be beneficial for those who want more lasting results than those provided by required maintenance and additional cost of lip fillers.

A Kissable Boost

Your Lip Lift Consultation

There are many options for plumping your pout. From fillers to lip flips and lip lifts, Dr. Cole wants to find what will work best for your aesthetic goals, lifestyle, and expectations. Schedule a consultation to find out the best course of action to give your lips a kissable boost—either temporary or permanent.

Scarless Results

Your Lip Lift Procedure

Patients should come to the appointment with no moisturizer, serum, or makeup on their faces. They should also wear loose-fitting clothes that don't need to go over the head (think: buttons and zippers). After administering local anesthesia and sedation, Atlanta lip lift provider, Dr. Cole removes a minuscule angel wing-shaped piece of skin from under the nose. Dr. Cole utilizes endoscopic and laser techniques to ensure scarless healing. The procedure usually takes about an hour.

No Maintenance Necessary

Lip Lift Recovery and Aftercare

Your lips will probably be slightly swollen for one to two weeks. Most of the time, it takes about six to eight weeks for the final results to emerge. Following a lip lift Atlanta patients may also feel tightness in the affected area for two to four months. Your lip lift should give you results that last for 10-15 years. Follow-up visits with Dr. Cole will ensure you get the best results possible.

Lip Lift Frequently Asked Questions

Your smile will look different for about two weeks following an upper lip lift as the swelling goes down, but after that, the swelling will reduce, and your final results will begin to emerge. The final smile will show a youthful pucker with improved upper teeth visibility.

While there are many different types of lip lifts, Dr. Cole specializes in three different techniques. His approaches are so unique with advanced techniques and laser technology that they are trademarked.

  • The Angel Wing lip lift, also called a central lip lift, makes the upper lip look fuller by shortening it and bringing the colored part forward.
  • An Angel Feather (corner) lip lift is dubbed a "grin lift" because it makes the face look happier. It's done by making two little incisions at the corners of the mouth and removing a little muscle and a small amount of skin. 
  • A Full Lip Lift combines both the Angel Wing and the Angel Feather to give you the most complete and harmonious improvements without needing to maintain them with lip fillers in the future.

A lip flip is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes neuromodulators like Botox to relax the muscle in the upper lip, which causes the lip to turn outward and appear fuller. Unlike lip fillers, which are injections directly into the lip, the lip flip involves injecting the neuromodulator above the upper lip.
