Dr. Patti Flint is one of few plastic surgeons in Arizona performing lip lift surgery, a quick, in-office procedure that brings youthfulness back to the lips and mouth.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - GeorgiaChron -- While dermal fillers are often touted as the solution to thinning, aging lips, for some patients this ends up simply emphasizing an undesirable feature. In an effort to offer her patients better options, Dr. Patti Flint has added "lip lift" surgery to her list of surgical offerings. The minor surgery is done in her office using local anesthesia and provides noticeable, natural-looking results in under an hour.

During lip lift surgery, Dr. Flint removes a tiny piece of skin directly underneath the nose, effectively shortening the space between the nose and upper lip. The upper lip is turned out, showing more of the pink part of the lip (vermillion), emphasizing the lip's peaks (cupid's bow) and exposing more of the teeth for a subtly sensual result. Tiny, carefully placed sutures result in a barely noticeable scar. Dr. Flint wanted to offer lip lift surgery as an alternative to fillers because it creates a more natural-looking result and is more permanent while also being a quick, in-office procedure.
