Lip Lift African American female
This African-American woman in her 20's underwent a lip lift to raise the upper Lip Lip so that her lips would be fuller.
Height5'5" - 5'8"
Weight140 - 150 pounds
Recovery Time2-7 days
The goal of the Lip Lift procedure is to raise the upper lip so that her lips are fuller. This patient wanted a very conservative change, so Dr. Rodriguez performed a minimum lift. What this means is that only a tiny amount of skin is removed from the base of the nose. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and takes only 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The result is very subtle, but it really enhances her overall facial appearance.
