One of the most overlooked and improperly treated parts of the face is the upper lip. Being sub-specialized in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery allows Dr. Azzi the privilege of thinking about how every detail in the face helps shape the overall appearance.
One of the most common requests plastic surgeons in south Florida, and more specifically Palm Beach County receive is for fillers to be injected into the lips. These include Juvederm®, Restylane®, Belotero® and fat to name a few. If these are done improperly or on someone who is not a candidate, it can lead to the dreaded “done” or “ducklip” appearance.
“People are sometimes worried their Lip Lift will look unnatural. It is always so much fun to see how happy they are with their new lips and overall proportions of their face afterward!”
– Dr. Jean-Paul Azzi
Very few plastic surgeons are trained to perform such a specialized procedure. He or she must understand the proper distance from lip to nose and when adding volume in the form of fillers or fat grafting is appropriate.
“Often times all people need is 5mm or so more ‘cupid’s bow’ to complete their makeover.” – Dr. Jean-Paul Azzi
Dr. Azzi performs almost all of his facial plastic surgery procedures, including liplifts, right in the office under local anesthesia. The Lip Lift procedure is almost pain-free and takes about 30 minutes. Recovery is rapid with patients experiencing very little downtime.
