These days, lips are becoming one of the most popular facial features to improve. As a growing number of individuals seek plump, full and proportional lips, cosmetic procedures to enhance and transform this area of the body have also become more widely available. So if you are interested in addressing a lack of fullness or asymmetry in the lips, surgical and non-surgical options are available.
Surgical Lip Augmentation
With age, many people find that their upper lift is not as prominent or visible as it once was. This is the result of a variety of factors, including gravity, elasticity and bony support. To reverse this sign of aging and maintain a plump upper lip, a lip lift can help. This procedure is designed to help the upper lip become more visible by gently rolling out the lip to recreate the appearance of a youthful, full lip. The results of this procedure are more permanent than a non-surgical option, making it a viable and convenient choice for many who wish to plump up their lips for the long-term.
Non-Surgical Lip Injections
Another option, and arguably the most popular, is to improve the appearance of the lips with a lip injection. We use a variety of injectables such as Juvaderm® and Restalyne®, depending on the patient’s unique needs. This approach is fast, convenient, and requires zero downtime, so patients can get back to normal activities as soon as they leave our office. Of course, as with all fillers, the body will metabolize the product over time, which means that you may choose to schedule maintenance appointments to continue looking your best.
Which Option is Right for Me?
For those seeking fuller lips, take heart knowing that you do not have to settle for lips that make you feel less attractive than you would like. However, in order to determine which procedure is best for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with Dr. Samuel Hahn to discuss your concerns and goals. This detailed conversation will allow him to create the best plan of action that will give you the impressive results you deserve.
