Lip lift for Healdsburg and the San Francisco area

One of the true signs of youth is a short upper lip. Unfortunately, the distance between one's upper lip and nose lengthens as we age. Doctors often use fillers to make the upper lip fuller, when in fact the person needs a shorter lip height.

An effective and permanent way to shorten the distance and create a lifted, upturned youthful upper lip is a well-constructed lip lift, available to San Francisco-area patients.

Dr Jacobs' lip lift procedure
Dr Jacobs' lip lift is designed to reduce the signs of aging that can occur as the skin around the mouth begins to sag with age. A lip lift will restore the well-defined youthful shape of the lips and mouth that has been lost over time. *

Dr. Jacobs' Lip Lift Procedure

The distance between the nose and upper lip increases over time, thinning the upper lip and causing it to roll inward, making the ideal cupid's bow shape less distinct, deepening upper lip lines. These changes can add 10 to 15 years to a person's appearance. Dr. Jacobs strongly believes Using fillers or fat injections to try to treat this problem is a mistake, since the added weight causes the lip to sag even more!

An upper lip lift from the San Francisco Bay Area's Dr. Stanley Jacobs provides a natural-looking fix that can last for years. Dr. Jacobs gives patients a local anesthetic, and the upper lip lift surgery itself takes about 45 minutes, with little bruising and some swelling in the following week.

A concealed incision is made under the nose, following the contour of the nose, and skin is removed. The upper lip is then lifted and-voila: a permanently youthful lip. Some patients may want to continue to use lip fillers, but generally they will not be needed after the lip lift is performed properly.

Dr. Stanley Jacobs will assess you to see if you are a candidate for the lip lift procedure. Contact us online or call his San Francisco office at (415) 433-0303 or Healdsburg office at (707) 473-0220.
