Lip Lift/ Implant/ Augmentation Boston
One of our favorite procedures, a lip lift/augmentation offers a way to enhance the shape, size, and beauty of your lips. Dr. Spiegel is recognized as one of the world’s masters of lip lifting and shaping, and was also the first surgeon to report the ability to perform a lip lift/augmentation at the same time as a rhinoplasty.
When we think of attractive lips, we envision lips that are full, curved, and shapely. Lip fillers can help in many cases to get you this beautiful result. However, one of the other key features of attractive, feminine, youthful lips is tooth show. Your upper lip should not extend down enough to fully block your upper teeth; seeing upper teeth when your mouth is at rest is a very powerful signal of beauty.
This is where a lip lift/augmentation becomes the perfect solution. A lip lift/augmentation will raise the upper lip to give it a fuller look, and allow for that glimpse of upper teeth.
Lip Lift Before & After
Types of Lip Lift/Augmentations
There are many types of lip lift/augmentations including the endonasal lip lift, bullhorn lip lift, corner lift, heart lift, and philtrum lift, among others. Dr. Spiegel will help you identify exactly the right type of lift for your lips to get a gorgeous result without anyone knowing how you look so good.
Typically, a segment of skin is removed to roll out and shorten the distance between your nose and upper lip while lifting the upper lift. Dr. Spiegel will customize where he lifts to get the right shape everywhere, not just in the center of the mouth. The corners can be elevated too for a happier, more friendly appearance.Stitches are typically in place for one week, and you’ll look great shortly thereafter. And, uniquely described by Dr. Spiegel, if you want fuller lips at the same time, Dr. Spiegel can place the skin and fat removed from high on the lip back into the red body of the lip for a beautiful lip augmentation at the same time! For many people, a lip lift/augmentation is the missing element between looking good and looking great. It’s so easy to learn more. Come see us today!
There are a number of different options for lip implants (natural, synthetic, solid or injected) that can be added to provide additional fullness to the lips. The most common implant Dr. Spiegel uses is called a dermal fat graft. This is a mixture of fat, skin and soft tissue. This is a small piece of living tissue that is placed into the lips. Since the implant is made from your own tissue there are fewer allergies, infections, or other reactions to worry about. The results are long lasting and the lips feel completely natural! Many other options are also available ranging from fat grafting, to injectable fillers, to permanent implants.
Lips are typically extremely puffy following these procedures—especially if an implant is placed. However, the majority of swelling is gone quickly.
There are other great non-surgical options including Restylane®, Juvederm® or Versa which are dermal fillers to give you luscious full lips.
Recovering from Your Lip Lift/Augmentation
A lip lift/augmentation is an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to return home the same day as your procedure. Stitches are typically in place for one week. There may be some swelling and bruising around the area, but this will subside after around two weeks of recovery. Once the swelling subsides, your lips will look absolutely gorgeous.

I love it!!! I feel it made such a difference in my overall appearance. Dr. Spiegel really knows what he’s doing even though he’s EXTREMELY pricey compared to other surgeons. I was really hesitant right before the procedure and even considered not going through with it but so glad I did. Afterwards I honestly though I made a huge mistake. I knew there would be swelling, but I didn’t even consider if it would change how my nose looked. Post op I was getting very worried that I messed up my nose because it was SO swollen and wide and pulled my nostrils down. But it’s completely back to normal now. The only thing I wish I had done differently was ask them beforehand if I could get some sort of sedative during the procedure. I wasn’t able to because I was leaving alone (new to this plastic surgery thing didn’t even cross my mind that I wouldn’t be able to haha). The procedure itself was very unnerving, at least for me. I was actually crying during it not because it hurt, but because it just freaked me out!! But after a week and a half I love love love the results and think Dr. Spiegel did a great job!
