Beverly Hills Corner Lip Lift

Corner Lip Lifts are designed in order to elevate an otherwise drooping outer corner of the mouth. Dr. Randal Haworth finds that patients often complain of constantly looking angry or sad compounding their aging appearance. However, young patients can also have downward turning corners of their mouth that they may have had ever since they can remember.

Traditional Outer Corner Lip Lift

Dr. Randal Haworth performs this procedure resulting in a near invisible outer scar located inconspicuously along the outer most corner of the red border of the upper lip. This surgery can be done under local anesthesia and involves 2 layers of stitches placed with the aid of magnification to minimize any scar. A singular outer stitch is removed in 5 days at which point makeup can be worn. Recovery from this surgery is minimal.

Lip reshaping is customized for the patient based on their facial structure, tissue characteristics and aesthetic expectations. Lip reshaping can involve one or a combination of procedures done either at the same time or in sequence. It also offers the distinct advantage of being a permanent solution.

The most appropriate candidates
for lip reshaping have:

  • A desire for more permanent results than temporary injectable fillers (which only address volume anyway)
  • Lips that have become thin, inverted, shapeless or sagging with age
  • Had other facial rejuvenation surgeries and want their lips to sync up with the rest of their face
  • Had a rhinoplasty and find that their upper lip is too long
  • Naturally unbalanced lips
  • Naturally thin, inverted or flat lips that are nearly invisible, imparting an angry expression
 


Medialized External Corner Lip Lift

Dr. Randal Haworth performs this procedure resulting in a near invisible outer scar which can be performed under local anesthesia.

This surgery not only elevates the corners of the mouth, but increases the red lip visible on either end of the upper lip. It also decreases any displeasing downward slope the upper lip takes as measured from its center.

In other words, it is quite powerful in its ability to change the shape of the upper lip, giving unprecedented control to the surgeon.

Despite its apparent simplicity, this surgery can be very challenging to even an experienced surgeon since it requires extraordinary detail to execute symmetrically and with pleasing results.
