Lip Lift Q&A

What is a lip-lift?

A lip-lift is a personalized procedure that involves correcting lip imperfections, while enhancing the aesthetic appearance of your lips. Some of the most common lip-lift and augmentation procedures from Park Avenue Facial Plastic Surgery are described below:


Indirect Lip-lift

An indirect lip-lift is similar to a direct lip-lift, but instead of placing the incision near your upper lip, Dr. Folk hides the incision near the base of your nose. You can achieve a pouty lip look with little-to-no scarring. 

Lip reduction

With a lip reduction, Dr. Folk can remove tissues from your upper or lower lips (or both). He entirely reshapes your lip area and decreases the size of your lips for a more harmonious aesthetic appearance.

Lip corner lift

If your lips droop near the corners, you may simply need a lift in those areas. Dr. Folk makes incisions near the corners of your lips to provide lift and elevation of your lip corners.

Is a lip-lift right for me?

Dr. Folk offers all types of lip-lift surgeries to achieve your desired aesthetic enhancements and outcomes. This type of procedure may be right for you if:

  • Your lips are asymmetrical
  • Dermal fillers aren’t effective
  • Dermal fillers produce unsatisfactory outcomes


This cutting-edge procedure requires meticulous attention to detail and careful consideration of your desires. Dr. Folk counsels you throughout every step, so you can make an educated decision about your lip-lift procedure. He personalizes your procedure to enhance your unique features. 

Will I need anesthesia for a lip-lift?

Dr. Folk performs lip-lift surgery under local anesthesia in his American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF)-accredited facility. No general anesthesia is necessary, and you can return home shortly after surgery.
