Achieve an Elegant, Subtle Lift

What is a Lip Lift?

NakedBeauty md® Lip lift

As we age, the lips can lose volume and shape, resulting in a less youthful appearance. A lip lift procedure can help to restore a fuller, more defined upper lip and reverse the effects of aging. At Privé Beverly Hills, Dr. Catherine Chang is a leading specialist in lip lift procedures, offering advanced techniques and personalized care to help her patients achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results.

A lip lift is a surgical procedure that shortens the distance between the nose and the upper lip, resulting in a fuller, more pronounced upper lip. Unlike lip fillers, which add volume to the lips with injectable substances, a lip lift involves removing excess skin and tissue from the upper lip to reveal more of the vermilion (pink) lip tissue and enhance the natural shape of the lips.

The Lip Lift Procedure

The lip lift procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and can be completed in about an hour. Dr. Chang will make an incision under the nose to remove the excess skin and tissue, then carefully suture the incision to create a natural-looking contour and balance between the lips and nose.

Lip Lift Benefits

There are several reasons to consider a lip lift procedure. You may be a good candidate for this rejuvenating treatment if:

  • Lip Sagging: The distance between your nose and upper lip has increased over time, causing the lips to appear thin and saggy.
  • Lack of Definition: Your upper lip lacks definition and appears flat or elongated. Signs of Aging: You have wrinkles or fine lines around your lips that make you appear older. 
  • Asymmetry: Your lips are uneven or asymmetrical, affecting the overall balance and harmony of your face. 
  • Dissatisfaction: You are dissatisfied with the appearance of your lips and wish to enhance their shape and fullness.

“Surgery sans looking surgical”

After many hours spent looking at pictures, studying surgeons' credentials, reading reviews and staring at my aging face, I chose Catherine Chang, MD for my facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty and CO2 laser procedure. It was a leap of faith that came with great anxiety in the midst of a pandemic year. My first visit with Dr. Chang was unhurried and she took the time to explain the procedures she was recommending as well as the results that could be expected. Her confidence and understanding were reassuring. Dr. Chang is a skilled surgeon, talented and perceptive. She understood what I was looking for. State of the art results: Dr. Chang is an amazing young woman, a perfectionist.

Dr. Chang is AMAZING. I’d had incredibly severe breathing issues my whole life—I’m talking sinus headaches, blurry vision, absolutely *no* airflow through one side of my nose—all from an extremely deviated septum. On top of everything else, the septum issue created a huge bump in my nose that proved to be very problematic for my career as a performer. As a woman of color, finding a doctor who could improve my quality of life, adjust my profile, but simultaneously honor my heritage and my ethnicity was a terrifying thought. I wanted to solve my problem, but I wanted to come out looking like me. I was overwhelmed by the fear of not being heard—as I’d had many other experiences where my dignity as a patient was clearly not the priority.

Dr. Catherine Chang changed my life. At 43, I unfortunately had aged prematurely in my lower face and neck and was so unhappy with my changing appearance. I had met with a couple of other surgeons but was too scared to trust them with such a big surgery. Not only is Dr. Chang professionally incredible but she is also cool and sweet as can be and every office visit is a joy. I am so grateful I found Dr. Catherine Chang!

"Dr. Chang is absolutely amazing. I am beyond happy and thankful that I chose to have my procedure with her! Words can't describe how happy I am! My recovering was less than 3 days! Same day I was already on my feet! I only took pain medication for about a day. I recovered so fast, not a single issue. Now the best part is the results, the result is INCREDIBLE. Exactly what I wanted! Thank you Dr. Chang!!!"

"Dr. Catherine Chang is a masterful plastic surgeon! I cannot say enough about how happy I am with the results of my recent surgery! I have "cred" as they say because I'm in the business of medical aesthetics--a Registered Nurse in this field since the early 2000's. I have been extremely fortunate to work with legendary plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Thank you Dr. Chang for restoring this face and neck!"

"Dr. Cat Chang is amazing! I wish there were more than 5 stars I could give her. After years of contemplation, I went ahead and had the rhinoplasty (nose job) I have always wanted with Dr. Chang. I could not be more pleased with the results! I love my new profile, it is exactly what I hoped for!"

"Simply put, Dr. Chang is phenomenal on so many levels! It was such an easy decision to choose her to perform my breast implant replace and lift surgery. Apart from having a "rock star" academic resume, upon meeting her I was immediately impressed as she has a very caring demeanor, is personable, professional, compassionate, but most importantly, incredibly experienced and knowledgeable."
