"I had my breast implant about 2 years ago. Even they were bigger than I was expecting, they look very natural. People who doesn't know I had an implant couldn't tell I had implants. Although having them to big for my body, i had a hard time to adjust my new look. Being back and forth with Dr. Widder and his staff, we finally agreed to have a local procedure to get them smaller. Most importantly they work very professionally, never had any problem with my appointments, they were always on time and friendly. The only thing I had negative experience was the new Cup size which has been sold. I highly recommend him to any of my friends who considers to have an implants. I am just not a big breasts person and didn't realize the outcome. I am glad we worked it out, they are getting smaller. :-))"- R.G. / Google / Aug 14, 2017

Lip lift surgery is a great option if you:
- Desire a fuller lip contour
- Have thin, deflated, or low hanging lips
- Would like to change the distance between your upper lift and nose
What To Expect
When undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to have realistic expectations and to properly educate yourself on the potential outcome. This can be achieved by undergoing a one on one consultation with your doctor, as they can show you before and after photos. The techniques and incisions used will be based on your cosmetic goals and current lip position. However, during a traditional upper lip lift, an incision is made directly beneath the nose, excess tissue is removed, and the lip is elevated to a higher position. Incisions are strategically placed beneath the nose to minimize the appearance of scarring. Surgery is performed under general anesthesia and commonly takes about 90-minutes to complete.
A lip lift is an invasive procedure that typically requires 7 – 10 days of healing. A visible bandage will need to be worn during this time to ensure proper healing and to prevent infection. It’s important to avoid strenuous activities that could possible disturb or cause discomfort to your upper lip area. Wearing loose shirts or button tops can also prevent you from possibly bumping the wound site. Minor bruising, swelling and redness is normal but should subside within a few days. Results produce fuller, natural looking lips, decreases the distance between your upper lip and nose, and allows the appearance of the upper teeth to be more dominant.
