Lip Lift

Lip Lift in Fairfax

While some people are blessed with full and voluptuous lips, others aren’t quite so fortunate. If you have a desire to enhance your smile, a lip lift could be the safe and simple solution you’re looking for. 

Why Choose a Lip Lift?

A lip lift is an uncomplicated surgical procedure during which a small piece of skin under the nose is removed to shorten the distance above the upper lip. This helps roll your upper lip upward to create a more feminine contour and youthful appearance. 

During your lip lift, there is no reason to be concerned about pain. Your surgeon’s priority is your comfort, and a local anesthetic will make the procedure painless. 

As for the benefits of a lip lift, take a look at what you’ll enjoy:

  • Fuller, more defined lip line
  • Reduction in fine lines around your upper lip
  • Improved shape
  • Refreshed, rejuvenated smile
  • Permanent results
  • Boost to your self-confidence

What Is Recovery Like After a Lip Lift?

Active lip lift recovery lasts around one week. Immediately following your lip lift, you will experience swelling and discomfort that can be eased with cold compresses and pain medication. 

After about five days, you’ll schedule a follow-up with your surgeon to check your progress and have sutures removed.

When Will I See Lip Lift Results?

You’ll be surprised at how quickly you canl see the results of your lip lift, which may be as little as a few days or up to two weeks.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Lip Lift?

You should have at least 1.5 centimeters of space between your upper lip and bottom of your nose. Aside from having enough space, as long as you are in good health and have a desire to enjoy a fuller top lip and a boost to your self-esteem, you’re likely a great candidate for a lip lift.

I had a great experience with Dr. Kim!!! He did his best to make me feel comfortable during the procedure and explained the whole process to me beforehand. The entire staff were also so nice! You can tell they all get along and have a great work culture. Sally R.
I love this office . First and foremost Dr. Kim has the most kind, heart warming staff working with him. Secondly, I have had several consultations with Dr. Kim regarding procedures that I am considering. During the consults he really takes time to understand my needs and give honest advice along with visuals of what I would like to achieve. His work is so precise to what I aim to achieve and is totally on point 💯 to satisfaction. Dr. Kim and his staff are vextremly friendly, patient and professional. I am definitely becoming a regular here. Must try the Diamond glow facial and other skin rejuvenating procedure! Nikki P.
I really enjoyed my visit to Dr. Kim’s office. From the moment that I walked in, the staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. Dr. Kim is very educated and easy to talk to. He really took the time to listen and to try to make sure you knew what would be best for you. Another bonus is he brings his cute little dog to the office with him. I would100% recommend him and his staff. Pam K.
Visiting Dr.Kim’s office has been a wonderful experience thus far. His staff makes me feel happy and assured at every visit. Of course, the man of the hour has always been calm, humble and tends to humor me at every comment and answers every question that has came up in our visits. I believe I have made the right choice to receive Dr. Kim’s medical expertise as being under his hands, he has been gentle during the operation as well as produced excellent results. (Biggest plus, I have never felt rushed under his care lol you’re the bomb Dr. Kim!!!! Jennifer C.
After interviewing several physicians I decided to go with Dr. Kim. Professionalism is extremely important to me but so is the character of the physician, the attitude, and personality. He made me feel comfortable, he was confident but not arrogant. I trusted his expertise and I was not disappointed. Thank you Dr. Kim! Judy G.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kim for Asian eyelid surgery (upper eyelid blepharoplasty)!!! My results turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Kim really took the time to listen to me and what I wanted. Together, we carefully planned out where the eyelid crease would be, and it is exactly where we had planned! I also had a quick and somehow painless recovery, which I’m sure much of that can be owed to his excellent surgical technique. I feel so much more beautiful and confident after this surgery. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner in life. Thank you, Dr. Kim, for quite literally changing my life, and thank you to his wonderful staff who made this such a pleasant and efficient experience! JA
