Take the first step with Vickram Tandon, MD Plastic Surgery

When you come for your Lip Lift consultation, you will meet with Dr. Tandon and be allowed to discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns for your lips and have your questions about the surgery answered. He will then evaluate the shape, size, and proportions of your lips to assess if this procedure is the best solution for you. This evaluation will also include a discussion about your medical history to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure and prevent any unnecessary risks.

Once you and Dr. Tandon have discussed and agreed upon every aspect of your surgery, he will create your custom procedure plan. Before you leave, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule the day and time of your lip lift procedure and provide you with some instructions to follow.

What to expect on the day of Lip Lift?

On the day of your Lip Lift in Boston, you will first meet with Dr. Tandon and discuss your procedure one more time. You will then be administered either local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the process. Dr. Tandon may make some temporary marks on your lips where he intends on making the incisions.

Dr. Tandon will skillfully perform the Lip Lift by making carefully placed incisions along the natural lip line or beneath the base of the nose, depending on the technique he chooses. He will remove any excess skin and reposition the remaining tissue to elevate your upper lip. Once finished, Dr. Tandon will close the incisions with sutures and apply some bandages for additional protection.

The surgery typically takes about one to two hours, and after the procedure, you will receive detailed post-operative care instructions to promote proper healing.

Lip Lift Recovery

After your Lip Lift surgery, our staff will monitor you in our recovery room until you awaken from sedation. Once you are good to leave, you will be released from our care and will be able to have a friend or relative take you home.

As you recover, it is important to give your body time to heal. There will be some swelling and bruising around your lips but should subside over the next few days. We encourage our patients to avoid any strenuous activities for the first few weeks and follow the specific guidelines for eating, drinking, and talking that we give you.
