Do you want to get rid of the lines above and below your lips? Does your lipstick feather soon after you apply it? Do you want natural fuller looking lips?
Full sensuous lips are a sign of youth and vitality. The aging process often results in excess thinning of the red portion of the upper lip along with a visible lengthening of the distance from the base of the nose to the lip border. Downturned corners of the mouth impart a frowning appearance, which usually does not reflect the individual's underlying emotional state.
Options for enhancement of the lips and mouth include a variety of injectable "fillers": Restylane®, Radiesse™ and fat. Fat reinjection may provide more long-lasting results but is sometimes unpredictable as to the degree of improvement.
Lip Augmentation using Goretex® or Alloderm® can achieve long lasting enhancement of both the upper and lower lips. Goretex implants are permanent and well tolerated by the body. Alloderm is a naturally derived implant, which also provides long-term enhancement. The procedure may be done under local anesthesia in the office setting and is customized to achieve the desired degree of enhancement.
