This is a 50 year old female from Culver City, CA, who previously had facial surgeries, such as facelift, browlift, and rhinoplasty, by another surgeon. However, she wanted a more youthful looking upper lip. She felt it looked too long. She consulted with Dr. Svehlak.
Dr. Svehlak performed an upper lip lift using a mustache-shaped (Bullhorn) incision below the nose to reduce the amount of space between this patient’s nose and upper lip. The upper and lower lips were also plumped using the patients own fat as autologous fat transfer. A natural contour was also achieved for a more youthful-looking mouth and pouty lips.
She was very pleased with her results. These photos are 6 months post-op.
