Upper Lip Lift in Nashville, TN
What is an Upper Lip Lift?
An upper lip lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure in which a small amount of skin is removed from under the nose. The upper lip is lifted to give the illusion of added volume and provides a more youthful appearance. As aging occurs, the upper lip lengthens and loses volume. This technique shortens the space between the upper lip and nose, making the upper lip appear more full and youthful.
How Much Does an Upper Lip Lift Cost?
The average cost of an upper lip lift does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for an upper lip lift at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What are the Benefits of an Upper Lip Lift?

- Avoids use of implants or dermal fillers in the lips
How is an Upper Lip Lift Performed?
Your upper lip lift can be performed under local anesthesia. Some patients are more comfortable with IV sedation in the surgery center. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible throughout the duration of your upper lip lift procedure. Dr. MaDan will then make the necessary incisions around your nose and mouth, removing a small amount of skin and tightening facial muscles, to create your desired look. The incision is well-hidden in the base of the nose. This technique will be completely tailored to your current features and your desired results. Dr. MaDan will be able to go over the more specific details of your upper lip lift during the time of your consultation.
What is the Recovery Time for an Upper Lip Lift?
Because the upper lip lift is a surgical procedure, patients usually take between five and seven days to make a full initial recovery. During this time, you may experience swelling, bruising and discomfort around your treated areas. Most discomfort will likely subside after 72 hours, at which time most patients return to their normal daily activities including work. We ask that you do not resume any physical activity until Dr. MaDan gives you clearance, as it will contribute to excess swelling.
