At Last! Advanced Solutions
Aging, as well as exposure to the elements, can take a toll on our lips, and in both women and men, thin, flat and aged lips may detract from an overall attractive appearance. In many cases, lips that have flattened out into thin lines seem unexpressive, even when you smile. In some cases, gravity and skin laxity have caused the corners of the mouth to naturally pull downward so that you appear to be frowning at all times.
Other common complaints that many of our patients want to address include vertical lines around the lips and a loss of volume in the lips that makes the mouth appear thin and wrinkled. In some cases, the lips appear shapeless, with no definition, no cupid’s bow at the center of the upper lip, and no fullness in the lower lip.
Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa provides an array of treatments to address all of these concerns, restoring fullness and plumpness to flattened and thin lips, enhancing the shape and definition of the lips to create a more voluminous pronounced lip contour, which by extension, rejuvenates your entire face.
Dermal injectable fillers such as Volbella, and Juvederm Ultra are simple, non-surgical, and relatively inexpensive solutions that may be used to enhance lip volume and definition, also encouraging collagen production to enhance smoothness and hydration. These treatments improve the appearance of the entire mouth, diminishing lines and creases around the lip line.
Fat grafting is done with fat that is harvested from other areas of your body where you want to eliminate fatty deposits, such as the tummy, love handles, or thighs. This fat is extracted by means of liposuction, the liquefied and injected into areas such as the lips, to enhance lip volume naturally.
For patients seeking a longer-term solution than dermal fillers, which must be repeated regularly every few months in order to maintain results, lip implants may be inserted inside the lips to define the shape of the lips and add lasting volume and fullness. Lip implants are typically made of saline or silicone, and may be exchanged in the future if you should decide you’d like a different shape or size implant. The surgical lip implant procedure is safe and simple, and requires miniscule incisions typically located discreetly at the corners of the mouth or inside the lower lip.
The Venus Viva™ is a skin resurfacing treatment system that works by using radiofrequency technology to gently scrape off the outermost layer of skin, also scraping off the lines and wrinkles that have formed in that outer layer of skin. This treatment is highly effective for those fine, vertical “smoker’s lines” that form around the lip line, as well as wrinkles in the lips themselves. Skin resurfacing with Venus Viva™ also boosts collagen production, so the treatment also improves skin tone gradually for several weeks.
Upper Lip Lift
In cases where the skin on the upper lip has become so lax that the lip hangs over the lower lip, surgical excision of upper lip may be performed to reduce the height of the lip and create a less tired and droopy appearance.
