What’s Recovery Like After a Lip Lift or Lip Reduction?
In most cases, you should feel well enough to return to work in as little as 1-2 days after your lip lift or lip reduction. Some swelling and mild discomfort is to be expected and typically peaks around 1-3 days with a lip lift, and 3-4 days with lip reduction surgery.
If you experience any unexpected side effects after treatment, please contact our office immediately.
What Can I Expect for my Lip Lift/Lip Reduction Results?
- Initial Results at… Immediate
- Final Results at… 1-2 weeks
- Results last… Permanent*
The results of your lip lift or reduction will be immediately noticeable. In both cases, you may experience some swelling and moderate discomfort during the first few days after your surgery. However, your lips will continue to heal over the first couple weeks, revealing your final results.
*While the results of your lip lift are permanent, this does not mean they are no longer susceptible to the normal effects of aging. However, the procedure will have you looking years younger than if you had not had the surgery, allowing you to look and feel your best at any age.
