Lip lift: Rediscover the Youth and Beauty of Your Lips

The Lip Lift is an innovative facial rejuvenation surgical procedure that is revolutionizing the way we view the beauty of our lips. This simple and quick technique can be performed in combination with a mini facelift or alone, using only local anesthesia. The results are surprising, aiming to shorten the distance between the mouth and nose, increase the definition of the cupid’s bow and philtrum columns, reduce the need for fillings and enhance the visualization of the teeth.

Lip Anatomy

Before we delve deeper into the Lip lift, it is important to understand the anatomy of the lips. The lips are made up of several anatomical sub-units that play a fundamental role in the aesthetics of the face:

Filter Depression: The area just above the upper lip.

Filter Columns: The structures that run vertically from the nose to the upper lip.

Cupid’s Bow: The distinctive curve that forms the upper lip

White Roll: The part of the upper lip that is located above the vermilion.

Vermilion: The part of the upper and lower lip with a more intense color.

Nasolabial Fold: The folds that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Lateral Commissure: The outer corners of the mouth.

Central Tubercle: The small protuberance on the upper lip.


The Lip Aging Process

Lips play a central role in our communication and facial expressions. Over time, it is common to observe changes in the aesthetics of the lips due to the natural aging process. These changes include lengthening of the white lip, decreased visibility of the red lip (vermilion) and the appearance of perioral wrinkles, commonly referred to as “barcode”.

Many people use too many fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, to restore the youthfulness of their lips, which can give them an artificial and heavy look. However, with the development of this lip rejuvenation technique it is possible to restore youthful anatomy, providing natural and long-lasting results.


Lip lift procedure

The Lip lift procedure is notable not only for its impressive results, but also for its simplicity and speed. With an average duration of 30 to 45 minutes and using only local anesthesia, hospital admission is not necessary. Patients can normally resume their professional activities in just 2 to 3 days, and sports in around two weeks. This convenience makes Lip Lift an attractive option for those looking for effective rejuvenation with minimal recovery time.


Complementary Treatments

Lip lift can be complemented with other procedures to optimize results. Para melhorar a qualidade da pele ao redor dos lábios, pode ser realizado um resurfacing ou peeling. In addition, a gentle volumization of the vermilion and white lip roll is possible for an even more rejuvenated appearance.

The use of Nanofat, a procedure that improves skin quality, can also be incorporated into the treatment. This set of options allows the Lip lift procedure to be customized according to each patient’s individual needs and goals.


Lip Lift with Face Lift

For those considering a facelift, the good news is that the Lip lift can be performed simultaneously. However, it is important that this decision is made after a careful evaluation and a prior plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Tiago Baptista Fernandes, Dr. Eduardo Matos or Dr. Rui Lima. The combination of these procedures can result in a rejuvenated and harmonious facial appearance.



Lip lift is a revolutionary facial rejuvenation procedure that aims to bring back the youth and beauty of the lips. With impressive results and minimal recovery time, this simple and quick procedure is the ideal solution for those who wish to shorten the distance between the mouth and nose, enhance the cupid’s bow and philtrum columns, reduce the need for fillers and Show your teeth again like you used to.

If you are looking for a procedure that can transform the appearance of your lips and rejuvenate your face, Lip lift is the perfect choice.
