The Park Clinic is planning to be open on Friday, September 18th. We currently do not have power and are unable to confirm appointments. Please be advised there will be no No-Show penalty for patients unable to make it to their appointment. We will be available for all patients who need us. If you had an appointment scheduled with us this week and it was cancelled due to Hurricane Sally, we will be in contact with you as soon as we can. It may be early next week, but we will get those appointments rescheduled. We hope that all of our patients stayed safe during the storm. Should you have an emergency please dial 911.

Lip Surgery Mobile

Lip Surgery Mobile

Common complaints related to the lip include lips that are too fat, too short, too thin, too long, and too wrinkled. The latter three become more prevalent with age, sun exposure, and cigarette smoking.

Lip reduction is a procedure to reduce a prominent or protruding lip. With local anesthesia, intraoral mucosa is removed which shortens and debulks the lip.

Lip augmentation includes injectable fillers (i.e. Restylane®, Juvederm®), surgical placement of long-term or semipermanent implant material (Goretex®, Softform®, Medpor®, Alloderm®), or surgical enhancement including lip advancement and lip lift.

In lip advancement, a small strip of skin is removed where the lip meets skin. When this wound is closed, it gently everts the mucosa, providing a shorter, fuller appearing lip.

In a lip lift, a small ellipse of skin is removed from the upper lip at the junction with the nose and as the wound is closed, it lifts the lip, shortening it.

The commissureplasty or corner of the mouth lift is a direct excision of skin above the commissure that can improve the scowl some patients appear to have due to a downturned corner of the mouth.

Plumping of the lip can also be surgically performed without implants by advancing intraoral tissue.
