Lip Lift


Full lips are a sign of youth and beauty. The popularity of lipstick and filler treatment to accentuate lips serves to highlight how highly society values this beauty trait

As we get older the fullness of our lips decreases. This is accentuated by the distance between the nostril and upper lip increasing. This results in the typically thin upper lip of older age.

Using a filler can help but it only adds volume to the lip and does nothing to correct the imbalance in length of the upper lip. Excess filler can deform the appearance of the upper lip.

A surgical lip lift is an ideal solution in this situation. Lip lift reduces the distance between the nose and the upper lip and also rotates out the upper lip making it look plumper and full

What is a Lip Lift?

Dr. Faisal will assess your face and recommend the procedure if  you are a suitable candidate

The lip lift procedure is performed in the clinic whilst you are awake 

The proportions of the upper lip are measured and the area that needs to be removed precisely marked

The most uncomfortable part of the lip lift procedure is the local anaesthetic injection. This will make the procedure painless and also reduce bleeding

The skin will then be excised in the shape of a bull horn. The final scar will skirt around the base of the nose and over time will not be visible.

Critical deep stitches are then placed to secure the upper lip to the base of the nose. Fine stitches are then inserted to the skin to ensure a fine scar

What is the Recovery Following Lip Lift?

Immediately after the surgery, there will be swelling

Dr. Faisal will discharge you shortly after the procedure with pain killers and antibiotics

There will be mild discomfort and this will ease over the following 72 hours

The swelling may increase over the first 48-72 hours. Dr. Faisal advises you to use an ice pack for 5 minutes every hour for the first 5 days to help limit this. The majority of the swelling takes 1 week and rarely 2 weeks to subside, however, a residual amount will take 6 weeks to settle

You can return to work at 1 week

Are There any Complications I Need to Know

The Lip lift is a procedure with a very high satisfaction

Any procedure has a risk of infection, but thankfully occurs very rarely

The scar take a few weeks to settle, but forms a very fine line which is hidden discreetly. There are a small number of patients who have thicker scars. If this does occur then this can be managed with steroid injections

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Faisal and I honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. The whole process from consultation to aftercare appointments was professional, caring and to the highest standard. He listened to what I wanted and the results are incredible. I would have any future treatments done by Dr Faisal and would send anyone I know to him also.

Been looking for doctors over years now both in Dubai and India. Never felt fully comfortable with anyone to go forward with the procedure, then I came across Dr. Faizal, found him while I was doing research online and read a lot of positive reviews. Went down for a consultation, a really gem of a person. Immediately felt comfortable, he explained me everything in detail, assured me and got exactly what I wanted and the price was reasonable as well. The hospital the surgery was held at had the best services and staff as well. They took care of everything and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. Came back home the same day, I'm at 6 weeks post op now, and the healing is wonderful and now I feel much more confident, all thanks to him. If anyone is looking for a breast augmentation, I would definitely suggest to go for a consultation with him and decide for themselves.
good choice

Having done a lot of research and looked around Dubai for the best possible option for us, we found Dr Faisal, and I'm so glad we did! The non judgemental and honest advice throughout as well as his pre and post op care is incredible and has been there every step of the way for me. Thank you so much Dr Faisal for everything :).

I came to Dr.Faisal not sure of anything. I wasn’t happy with my body as I had a lot of excess skin due to massive weight loss. I was scared of the idea of a surgery, so came in hoping for an alternative. Here I am months - 3 months post my surgery, wearing a pair of jeans that would have never fit me before. I had a lower body lift surgery done, and I must say my results are amazing. My body has changed so much, and I am very very happy with the way I look now. Dr.Faisal is a great doctor. He will make sure you are aware of everything before and after the procedure and is always there for his patients. My favorite trait about him is that he is always available. Being a patient who has low pain tolerance, and someone who worries a lot, I would always call him. I would have a lot to ask before and after the surgery- and he was always there. It didn’t matter what day or time it was, he made sure to help with every little thing and I am very grateful for him. Thank you doctor, I can now sit without having layers of my stomach falling down, I can now wear my clothes much more confidently and can finally say I love my body.

I can’t recommend Dr Faisal enough, he gets me the results I want every time. He answers all of my questions in depth and explains how and why he does things and makes me feel comfortable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

Two words to describe my experience with Dr. Faisal: life changing. I had a breast reduction and it has changed my life! The procedure itself was painful for the first 2 hours and much to my surprise I was ready to go home only 4 hours after waking up and ready to return to work only 3 days later. My back, neck and shoulders feel great, my posture is better and I couldn't be happier! I recommend Dr. Faisal and the surgery 100%, my only regret is not finding him 10 years sooner! Thank you Doc!!

Dr Faisal is a skilled surgeon who is extremely meticulous and I would highly recommend him. He has a pleasant and calm demeanor which puts you at ease. He looks at the whole person and what they want to achieve and relays realistically what can be done which helps set the right level of expectation from the outset. He shows compassion throughout the process which makes you feel like you are in good hands. Overall Dr Faisal exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased with my results!
