LIP AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE OVERVIEW
Am I a good candidate for a Lip Augmentation?
Some of the indications that you may be a good candidate for Lip Augmentation are:
· loss of fullness in the lips
· lines that radiate outward from the edge of the lip
· corners of the mouth have turned down
· inherit thin lips
The aging process is not always kind to the lips. With years, it is common that lips first lose their fullness followed then by lines that appear and radiate out from the edge of the lip and finally – the corners of the mouth turn down. A Lip augmentation creates fuller, plumper lips and reduces fine wrinkles around the mouth, restoring your youthful appearance.
How is a Lip Augmentation performed?
Lip Augmentations can be performed through a variety of procedures such as:
· injectable fillers like Restylane Juvederm or Radiesse.
· implantable materials like Gore-Tex synthetic thread, AlloDerm and and Perma Lip
· Fat or fascia grafting
Frequently, Dr. Dedo and Dr. Lipan will use a combination of fillers to achieve the safest and best cosmetic result. For example, Filler injected along the border of the lip will turn the edge of the lip outward giving it a beautiful pouty appearance. Filler injected in the vertical lines that radiate out from the lips can create a smooth surface. Finally, a deep chemical peel (Exoderm) can remove fine lines around the lip area almost permanently.
It all starts with an effective evaluation and consultation!
In evaluating you for Lip augmentation, Dr. Dedo or Dr. Lipan will conduct a routine and painless examination of your facial bone and dental structure, underlying skin structure, skin thickness, texture, and elasticity.
