Do you dream of enhancing your pout, without fillers?

As we age, our lips lose fullness and can drift downward as the skin loses its resilient, youthful firmness. You may be a candidate for a lip lift if you feel you have too much space between the base of your nose and the top of your upper lip, or if you want fuller lips. Lip lift surgery gives long-lasting results, which you may prefer over regular lip filler injections.

World-class lip lift surgeon in Omaha: Dr. John Harbison

Dr. John Harbison is a double board-certified plastic surgeon and an expert in specialized surgeries for the face. He has a five-star rating on RealSelf and is considered the premier facial plastic surgeon practicing in Omaha. At our private, boutique practice, we care for our patients through the entire process, from pre-surgery to recovery, and are committed to making your journey stress-free and positive.

What is the surgery like?

  • A lip lift can be done in our office under local anesthesia in approximately one hour. 
  • Dr Harbison will make a small incision along the base of the nose and remove a small amount of skin. 
  • This raises the position of the lips and increases the extent of pink visible in the upper lip. 
  • The incision is well hidden in the curves beneath the nose, and great care is taken in this procedure to avoid scarring.

How long is the recovery?

You can expect to have mild swelling of the lips for approximately seven days. One week after the procedure, Dr Harbison will remove the stitches. Pain is minimal with this surgery and can be controlled with oral medications. Plan to rest for 24 hours after a lip lift. Avoid strenuous exercise or sleeping on your face and brush your teeth carefully during your recovery. 

Lip Lift FAQ

Why have a lip lift?

The lips are a delicate area, and this fact can make some people hesitant to consider implants or fillers. Many people are born with thin lips, which can be disheartening in a world of social media, or see lip volume diminishing as the years pass. If you want to avoid maintenance treatments every few months, a lip lift is a long-lasting, beautiful alternative.

What are the benefits of a lip lift?

  • By the time we reach our 20s, the distance between the upper lip and the bottom of the nose starts to elongate. The longer this area becomes, the thinner your upper lip will appear. Lip lift surgery corrects this sign of aging to create a more youthful appearance.
  • A lip lift can be used to create a more attractive upper lip by subtly raising its position. The overall effect is more youthful and visible lips. This procedure can create a more defined “cupid’s bow” with natural-looking results. If you are a candidate, lip lift surgery could make a noticeable difference in the way you look and smile.
