During your Lip Lift Procedure
Dr. Milgrim performs the surgery in his New Jersey office, patients are under local anesthesia for comfort throughout the lip lift treatment. To begin, Dr. Milgrim creates a precise incision at the curves around the base of your nose. After, select areas of skin are extracted to augment the length of your upper lip, and created a lifted appearance. By repositioning the lip, it’s raised upward and reveals a beautiful and bright smile without visible scarring. Depending on your concern, the surgeon can perform one or both procedures to improve your appearance.
Types of Lip Lift Procedures:
- Bullhorn or Upper Lip Lift – Addresses thin lips and excess distance. Dr. Milgrim enhances the space between the upper lip and nasal base. This results in more visible pink lip, teeth and fuller lips.
- Gullwing or Vermillion Lift – Incisions are made along the vermillion – the red border that defines the lips – to restore volume.
- Corner Lip Lift – Designed to correct permanent frowns, this treatment lifts the corners of your lips and creates a more balanced smile.
The cost of a lip lift procedure can range from $2,500 to $4,000, depending on the technique used. During your consultation, Dr. Milgrim will determine which type of procedure will achieve optimal results.
