I had a lip lift yesterday and expected more lifting. Could it be that as the swelling will go down my lip will be more raised?

Disappointed in lip lift
Assessing lip lift result
- I am sorry you feel disappointed -]
- Usually the swelling after surgery is marked, making the lip look too big.
- That said, I have had an occasional patient in whom the swelling makings the lip drop - and it looks better as time goes on.
- One can't have an opinion about your situation without before/after photos, knowing the measurements before surgery and how much tissue was removed.
- However - it is much better to have too little than too much result - more can always be done.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Lip lift result
Difficult to tell without pictures, however your lip will be swollen for a period of time after surgery making it look like less of a result. Allow time for appropriate healing and things should look better.
