Beautiful Lip Lift by Dr Dino Elyassnia, San Francisco

My issue was an elongated philtrum (the area between the upper lip and the nostrils) that, with aging, tends to elongate vertically and also causes the upper lip to lengthen horizontally. In addition, I had a very noticeable horizontal line (deep wrinkle) just under the nostrils that indented more when I smiled. I've worked with Dr Elyassnia (Marten Clinic of Plastic Surgery, San Francisco) for four years where he has done exceptional work with Juvaderm and Botox for me (following cosmetic facial surgery). The procedure was under an hour, outpatient, local anesthesia (I drove myself home). The lip lift was very successful, shortened the philtrum issue, with the procedure also "shortening" the horizontal lip length to provide for fuller, more youthful, but completely natural-looking, lips. And eliminating the deep wrinkle. I really love the results, am extremely pleased, and highly recommend both the procedure and Dr. Elyassnia. (Sorry, my pics are just amateur, done with my iPhone, but see the difference just two weeks post-procedure!))

So pleased with the results, Dr. Elyassnia did such an amazing lip lift! Here are my 1-month post-op photos (again, very amateur, taken with my iPhone!)

Love Dr Elyassnia and his approach to executing beautiful, natural-looking results. He not only possesses extraordinary technical and medical expertise (see his amazing bio on his website and his Yelp reviews), but, importantly, also has a very creative and artistic approach to his patients and procedures that combine for gorgeous results. He's a great communicator, enormously patient-oriented, and interactive on all aspects of any procedure.
