Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A LIP LIFT?

A lip lift in Dallas, TX at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can help improve the aesthetic appeal of your lips and face with several great benefits, including:

 

  • It’s a minimally invasive procedure
  • Offers multiple treatment options
  • Creates a fuller, plumper lip appearance
  • Increases lip projection
  • Enhances the shape and contour of the lips
  • Helps achieve a more youthful look
  • Can reduce the appearance of a “gummy” smile
  • Avoids repeated injections with lip fillers
  • Results are long-lasting and natural-looking
  • Recovery is quick
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A LIP LIFT?

There are generally two types of candidates for lip lift surgery: those that often get lip fillers and want a way to adjust the appearance of their lips without having to continue getting lip fillers and those that are unhappy with the amount of space between their nose and top lip (the area called the philtrum). A lip lift will give the lips more vertical volume without creating lips that protrude or push out.

Lip lifts are permanent so they may be a good option for someone that gets regular lip fillers. You are not a good candidate for a lip lift surgery if you are a smoker and not committed to quitting, or if you don’t have about 1.5 centimeters between the base of your nose and the top of your upper lip.

HOW WILL MY LIP LIFT BE PERFORMED?

There are a few different types of lip lifts to meet your aesthetic needs:

Direct Lip Lift
This type of lip lift creates a more defined border around the lip. A thin strip of skin will be removed above your upper lip, pulling the skin upward, creating a more pronounced upper lip.

Subnasal Bullhorn
This is probably one of the more common lip lifts. For this surgery, Dr. Hanz will make an incision along the base of your nose and pull your lips closer to your nose.

Central Lip Lift
This lip lift gives you a face that appears to be more smiley, which is why this lift is often called the “grin lift.” Two incisions will be made at the corners of your mouth, and a small amount of skin will be removed. Once sutured, your lips will appear more smiley.

Italian Lip Lift
This lip lift is very similar to the subnasal bullhorn lip lift; however, there are two incisions made below each nostril.

During your consultation, Dr. Hanz will discuss your concerns and desired outcome to help you choose which lift would be best for you.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY LIP LIFT?

Before your surgery, you will likely get local anesthesia to help minimize the pain; however, the pain typically isn’t so intense that general anesthesia is needed. You will need to rest for at least one day after your lip lift, and avoid exercise for the next few weeks. You’ll want to make an effort to sleep on your back and try to keep your mouth as closed as possible while you sleep.

It’s very important that you keep your lips moisturized and that you use a small toothbrush while you brush your teeth very carefully. Dr. Hanz or someone on his staff will go over after-procedure care on how to clean your incision properly.

How much will my lip lift cost?

The cost of your lip lift will depend on the technique and if you will be receiving any other treatments at the same time. Rather than focus on cost, it’s important to make sure you are using a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Hanz. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can help you find a payment plan or low-interest financing option to make your surgery affordable for you.

Will I have bruising and swelling?

You can expect to have some swelling for a few weeks, and you may experience some bruising. As you continue to heal, these will subside and you will be left with beautiful lips.

When will I see my final results?

While you will see some results almost immediately, it takes about 6 – 8 weeks for your lip lift to be fully visible. Once your lips are fully healed, you can expect long-lasting results.

Will I have scarring?

It may take your scarring about six months or longer to fade and should be unnoticeable since the incisions are very small.

What is Lipo AI?

LipoAI's  involves identifying fat without immediate extraction, allowing Dr. Hanz to precisely target and dissolve fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues. This targeted approach not only minimizes bodily trauma and reduces the risk of vascular or nerve damage but also promotes skin tightening for smoother, more natural-looking results. By liquefying fat prior to removal, the procedure ensures a gentler extraction process, contributing to enhanced patient comfort and expedited post-operative recovery.

What is Renuvion®?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if Lipo ai is right for me?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure. Renuvion is an amazing non-surgical solution for reducing wrinkles and rhytides, but it’s not for everybody. This procedure requires recovery time and is not recommended for patients with darker skin tones but is limited to patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II, or III. Dr. Kevin Hanz will talk to you about your goals, your lifestyle, and whether Renuvion is the right option for you.

What can Lipo ai Treat?

LipoAI can treat various areas of the body where excess fat accumulates, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, buttocks, and submental region (under the chin). It's effective for both large and small areas, providing precise contouring and skin tightening.

    How does Lipo ai work?

    Lipo AI skin tightening treatment works by using laser energy to target the deeper layers of the skin. The laser heats the collagen fibers in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tighter, smoother skin over time.

    Why is this treatment good for my skin?

    This treatment is beneficial for the skin because it stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness. It also promotes cell renewal, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.

    Will I be asleep during the Lipo AI treatment?

    Lipo AI does not require a patient to be asleep or undergo general anesthesia. The procedure may be completed with a patient awake. Patients are given a light sedative to feel more relaxed and insure a pleasant, comfortable experience. Many of our patients prefer to avoid general anesthesia and really appreciate the awake approach. Having said that, we do offer the possibility of full anesthesia for those patients that may prefer to be more asleep during the procedure.

    What should I expect during the recovery time?

    During the recovery period, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. The recovery typically involves significantly less down time than other forms of Liposuction. Symptoms are usually mild and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. Patients may appreciate initial results in as little as 2-3 days, though maximum benefits may take several weeks to months to become fully apparent as the body heals and remodels.
