Following the procedure, you will receive comprehensive post-operative care instructions, and regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress. The result is a more youthful and naturally beautiful smile, brought to you by the expertise of Dr. Bhrany and the dedicated team at Seattle Face & Skin.

Lip Lift FAQ’s
Your procedure questions answered.
During a Lip Lift procedure, patients typically receive local anesthesia, which numbs the treated area and minimizes pain or discomfort during the surgery. However, some individuals might experience mild discomfort or tightness in the days following the procedure.
Any discomfort is generally temporary and should subside as the healing process progresses. It's essential to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by our team to ensure a smooth recovery and minimize any potential discomfort.
The Lip Lift procedure usually involves a consultation appointment followed by the procedure appointment. After the procedure, patients will have follow-up appointments to monitor their healing progress, but the actual Lip Lift surgery is typically a one-time treatment.
Our patients in Seattle typically begin to see noticeable results from our Lip Lift procedure once the initial swelling and bruising subside, which can take a few weeks.
Over time, the full results of the procedure become more apparent as the incisions heal, and the lips settle into their final shape and position.
Many of our Seattle patients choose to combine their Lip Lift with other surgical procedures, such as a Facelift, Laser Resurfacing, and or Blepharoplasty to have a more youthful appearance. If you know what you would like to achieve aesthetically, or would like to hear some of Dr. Bhrany’s professional suggestions, please discuss this with him during your consultation.
