Learning about Lip Augmentation

Monday, August 29th, 2011

From fashion editorials to box office movies, it’s becoming increasingly evident that full lips are in style. Women and men turn to my Santa Monica area plastic surgery practice in Marina del Rey to learn their options for enhancing their lips and reversing the effects of aging around the mouth.

Medical advances have made it easier than ever to achieve the full lips people see in popular culture, and one of the first options I often recommend for achieving this look is injectable lip augmentation. There are a number of injectable options that can provide temporary support for the border of a person’s lips. Filler options such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and fat transfer are a great option for people who want to restore volume and diminish the appearance of the vertical fine lines that often appear along the upper lip.

When people want a more permanent result, I often recommend a silastic lip implant. This popular solution helps people to restore their thin lips in a safe way, and can diminish the effects of aging around the lips.

Another option women and men have to achieve fuller lips is laser lip rejuvenation for wrinkled or minimized lipstick bleed lines. This simple treatment tightens and remodels the elastic tissue and collagen beneath the skin. The natural lip line is restored, and women and men often experience a youthful-looking lip shape.
