SmileLift™ is a revolutionary 30-minute non-surgical “expression procedure” invented by Dr. Assassa. It is designed to turn Perma-Mouth-Frown, a sad permanent drooping mouth corner, upside down thus restoring Mona Lisa Smile. SmileLift™ is an office procedure performed under local anesthesia. “I use a proprietorship tiny instrument to help lift the mouth corners and turn your expression from a sad resting face to a happy one,” Dr. Assassa said. No scalpel or stitching is needed. The results are immediate and long lasting, with minimal bruising and swelling lasting few days. Best of all, the procedure leaves no scarring.
