It has become exceedingly popular for women to wish for fuller, more luscious looking lips. Unfortunately, we cannot all be as lucky to be naturally given such plump, round lips.
Furthermore, as we begin aging, the corners of the mouth can appear to sag or slouch, as well as the V-shaped area of the upper lip, better known as the cupid’s bow, begins to look a bit deflated and lose much of its youthful fullness. Lip augmentation can be an excellent way to achieve the fullness you’re seeking. There are several methods available within a lip augmentation procedure. Some are less invasive than others. Lips can be rejuvenated and thin full lips can be enhanced.
Filler are a relatively quick and simple way to reach fuller looking lips. Dr. Lee prefers to use dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Perlane. Fat grafting can also be used to enhance and plump your lips in a way that appears very natural, and simultaneously will compliment the rest of your face. These options can also be harnessed in augmenting the natural silhouette of your upper lip and specifically targeting the cupid’s bow. Any vertical lines or wrinkles along the outer borders of the lips, can also be addressed and minimized at the time of your lip augmentation treatment.
A fat transfer can give your lips the appearance of fullness, by employing one’s own fat, which has been carefully taken from another area of your own body, possibly the flanks or belly. The donor site is usually a location in which excess fat is considered unwelcome, however this can be decided during your consultation with Dr. Lee. Fat transfer is a safe, natural procedure designed to restore aging areas of volume loss.
Lip Augmentation Before & After
Your lips may be slightly swollen for several hours, following your lip augmentation procedure. That being said, this is completely normal and should not hinder you from returning to your normal activities that same day. Dr. Lee errs on the side of being conservative in her application of fillers, which grants her the talent required when performing some of the best lip augmentation Los Angeles & Beverly Hills has available. Dr. Lee is able to avoid a forged looking duck-lip appearance.
Dermal fillers can also be used to correct irregular or unbalanced looking lips. It is not uncommon to have one side of the lips appear fuller than the other side. Dr. Lee is able to skillfully correct the asymmetry by replenishing the flatter side with conservative use of dermal fillers, to bring a sense of natural symmetry to your lips. The natural silhouette of your upper lip and cupid’s bow can be subtly accentuated to compliment the rest of your face. In addition vertical wrinkles along the outside of the lips can be minimized during your lip asymmetry correction.
