Elelyft is a unique type of upper lip lift surgery that helps create extraordinary, yet natural-looking results by lifting the upper lip and creating facial symmetry. At City Facial Plastics, located in Manhattan, NYC, our goal is to help patients feel confident in their appearance. Dr. Gary Linkov is a top-rated plastic surgeon who uses cutting-edge techniques and technology for your lip augmentation to ensure every patient obtains natural-looking, stunning results. 

 What is Elelyft?

Elelyft is a unique type of upper lip lift surgery. Elelyft surgery is a variation of the bullhorn lip lift surgery that incorporates traditional upper lip lift surgery techniques with a modern and individualized approach in order to achieve the best results. Special surgical ink is used to mark the incision to ensure the exact, correct amount of skin will be removed and that the skin closure is precise.

Once the skin is removed, the modern surgical techniques of deep release and undermining of the remaining skin are performed. These additional steps reduce the tension of the skin, leading to more optimal wound closure and minimal scar formation.


How Did Elelyft Surgery Come to Be?

Dr. Linkov is always reading and researching surgical techniques that would help him provide the best results for his patients. Having had extensive training in facial anatomy and the science behind wound healing, Dr. Linkov knew that making the remaining upper lip skin as relaxed as possible before closing the incision during upper lip lift surgery would result in a less noticeable scar.

He also used the special surgical ink in facial reconstructive procedures in the past and decided to implement it for these cosmetic cases. Dr. Linkov has been using the Elelyft scarless upper lip lift surgery technique with excellent results.

A Cutting-Edge Approach to The Upper Lip Lift

The Elelyft procedure is a brand-new method that lifts the upper lip. The procedure draws on both older and newer concepts while adapting to each person's unique features and desired outcome.

The upper lip lift has been around for some time and has often been requested by older patients looking for a lift after the inevitable effects of gravity and time. But now, the upper lip lift procedure is popular among all ages.

The Elelyft-Dr. Gary Linkov's unique approach to the upper lip lift procedure-only requires a local anesthetic and leaves patients with more prominent and enhanced lips.

What Does the Elelyft Procedure Involve?


The upper lip lift starts with a very meticulous marking and temporary skin staining to ensure the most accurate measurements and precision for closure. Dr. Gary Linkov may spend 20 to 30 minutes in this step to make sure the markings are as carefully done as possible since this is what will guide him through the process.

Once the marking is complete, Dr. Linkov will show the patient to make sure they are also happy with the markings and symmetry.

Once the patient approves the facial markings, Dr. Gary Linkov will move forward with local anesthesia to numb the upper lip so the rest of the procedure can be easily tolerated.

During the finishing touches of the surgery, there will be a sufficient release of tissues to provide a tension-free closure. The sutures used during the closure are strong enough to quickly heal the wound while also minimizing any scarring.

The Elelyft procedure respects the transition zone between the nose and the upper lip. Selecting the optimal amount of skin to remove is based on a unique set of parameters, taking into account the patient's wishes and also establishing harmony for the oral complex and overall facial anatomy.
