Lip Lift Procedure And Recovery Time

A lip lift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. It can be done under local anesthesia, which means you won’t feel any pain during the surgery. You will also be able to resume normal activities within 12-14 hours after the surgery. As for recovery time, it will take anywhere from 3 weeks to 6 months to fully recover. Recovery cost varies depending on your geographic location and surgeon fees. The procedure is very simple and can be done in a few steps:

1. The surgeon will use a scalpel to create an incision along your upper lip.

2. He will then separate and lift the muscle and fat from your upper lip.

3. The final step is to stitch the flap back in place.
