The natural aging process affects both the body and the face. Signs of the influence of time are especially noticeable in the periocular and periubital space. The drooping corners of the lips are immediately associated with sadness, longing, fatigue, and also give the face a displeased look. One of the types of cheiloplasty - corner lift surgery (lifting the corners of the lips) makes it possible to restore a benevolent facial expression, rejuvenate a smile and tighten the skin of the lips.
In aesthetic surgery, for the formation of new outlines of the lips, correction of their shape and volume, correction of asymmetry and imperfections, surgeons use a complex of plastic surgeries called cheiloplasty.
One of such interventions in the area of the lips is a lifting of their corners or a corner lift. Low-traumatic and completely safe manipulation allows you to remove the changes that have arisen as a result of age. And these are vertical wrinkles, lowered corners, loose skin.
Using one of several techniques, the surgeon excises the skin and muscles, applies inconspicuous sutures. As a result of a minimally invasive operation, most often under local anesthesia, the corners of the lips are slightly raised, imitating a slight smile, and the skin around is smoothed. This immediately gives a pronounced anti-age effect, transforming and rejuvenating the face.
To raise the lip corners, the following corner lips lift modifications are used:
Also, there are non-surgical methods for correcting the corners of the lips: lifting with threads, lipofilling (fat from donor parts of the body is pumped into the lips, chest, etc. to increase the volume), the introduction of Botox and hyaluronic acid preparations. Beauty injections are often used as an element of complex procedures to change your appearance, which, judging by the reviews, gives excellent results. In this case, the cost of the complex will be an order of magnitude lower than individual manipulations.
