Lip Enhancement Surgery


When to consider lip enhancement surgery

LOCATED IN BEACHWOOD | SERVING CLEVELAND AND NORTHEAST OHIO

Are you concerned about thinning lips or the appearance of vertical wrinkles? Do you worry that the downturned corners of your mouth make you look grumpy? Fortunately, many options are available to help you regain youthful lips – temporary or permanent, natural or synthetic.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy solution, fillers like Restylane and Juvederm can provide full, natural-looking lips without incisions or downtime. Alternatively, a surgical lip lift may be better if you want a more permanent solution. This procedure can address thin and elongated lips by elevating the upper lip and the corners of your mouth to create a more youthful appearance. Whatever your preference, you can restore your lips to their former glory in numerous ways.

Surgical changes to your lips and mouth performed by double-board certified facial plastic surgeon,  Dr. Diana Ponsky will help to give you a brighter, more positive expression. A lip lift restores balance and proportion to the lips, resulting in a more youthful appearance, and is subtle enough to look natural.

How It Helps

Lip augmentation can help improve the appearance of the lips by restoring balance to the face and creating a lip shape that best fits your face. The lip augmentation procedures we provide offer minimal side effects and downtime. More permanent interventions like a lip lift or implants mean a lifetime of improvement without the maintenance of fillers, although both approaches can create plump, smooth, youthful lips.

BEFORE

What to expect before Surgery

Your consultation with Cleveland facial plastic surgeon Dr. Ponsky will include a complete health history and a discussion of goals and expectations. Lip size, structure, and shape are analyzed. Photos will be taken, and you are encouraged to bring photos that demonstrate your goal, especially of your own lips if you prefer how they used to look. Your consultation will end with a customized treatment plan.

DURING

What to expect during A lip lift  surgery

Local anesthesia is used, sometimes along with oral sedation. Incisions are hidden within the crease under the nose and may be extended slightly into the nose. Excess skin is removed, and the edges of the incision are meticulously sutured, allowing for shortening of the white part of the upper lip and more show of the red portion of the lip. The total procedure time is about 45 minutes.

AFTER

What to expect after lip Surgery

Patients may return home shortly after their procedure. Pain medications may be used if you experience discomfort or pain after the local anesthesia wears off. During the first week, swelling decreases, and you can return to work and normal day-to-day activities. The first follow-up appointment occurs 6-7 days after the procedure.

Upper Lip Lift Q&A

An upper lip lift is a cosmetic surgery that reduces the space between the nose base and the upper lip top, rejuvenating facial proportions affected by aging or gravity. This surgical procedure enhances the smile by showing more upper teeth, restores youthful facial balance, and gives the upper lip a fuller look without adding volume.

An upper lip lift can be done under local anesthesia or oral sedative in our Beachwood office, which is approximately 30 minutes from Cleveland, OH, and about 2 hours North of Columbus, OH.

Our Beachwood practice, led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky, offers an upper lip lift procedure at the cost of $3,000.

Absolutely! We have a lot more before and after photos of upper lip lift patients who have granted consent to share in our office only. If you’d like to see more upper lip lift patient examples, please reach out and schedule a consultation (216) 508-4055.

I made an appointment for a rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Ponsky and within the same day I was scheduling my surgery. Dr. Ponsky and her entire team made the process extremely easy and always took my thoughts and opinions into consideration. The team was especially responsive following my rhinoplasty, easily reachable to answer any questions and concerns I had. I am currently 7 months out from my rhinoplasty and the follow through care during my recovery has been outstanding. Dr. Ponsky truly ensures that my every need is met and that I am 100% happy with my results. Would highly recommend!

Dr Ponsky and all of her staff are incredibly professional and friendly. Ally and Jen, at the front desk, welcomed me with smiles and mints for my 3-year-old. Michael answered all of my questions and was so gentle as we discussed my [unfortunate] nose and potential rhinoplasty. It’s a very vulnerable place to put yourself in so I very much appreciated how they handled it. Dr Ponsky herself is friendly, efficient, and skilled. Everything I look for in a medical professional. I did extensive research prior to scheduling my consult with Dr Ponsky so I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. I have not regretted my rhinoplasty for a moment. Dr Ponsky took my nose and finessed it down to better fit my face. I wanted it to look real and natural, which is exactly what I got. I so appreciate having the before and after pictures from Lauren, the medical photographer. If you’re on the fence and have the funds, just do it. It’s worth it and there is no doctor more qualified than Dr Ponsky (have you seen her resume??). Thank you to Dr Ponsky and everyone at the office. I love seeing you all when I’m back for follow-ups!

Dr. Ponksy is truly a a miracle worker! Her work is truly amazing! I had rhinoplasty just a few weeks ago. I am so in love with my new nose already! It was such a quick recovery, and not painful at all. Dr. Ponsky provides instructions to follow as well that helps speeds things up. The office staff is so accommodating, and you can text them with any concerns/ questions. They will answer you right away! Michael and the front desk go above and beyond to ensure you have the best experience. After years of wanting rhinoplasty and consultations with other surgeons in the area, Dr. Ponsky is the only way to go! High recommended 10/10

Dr. Ponsky performed my rhinoplasty and I could not be happier with the results. After many years of debating of whether to do it or not, I finally made the decision. From the initial consultation to after the surgery, Dr. Ponsky and her team have been nothing but caring and supportive through the whole process. The procedure itself was smooth and with very little to no pain. It almost felt like a head cold for about 3 days but after that, I felt great. They really do a great job at preparing you for it weeks in advance and guide you through the whole thing. If you are considering a rhinoplasty, you will be in great hands with Dr. Ponsky, she is kind and one of the best at her job!
