Your lips play an important role when it comes to your sense of facial symmetry — and feeling as though your lips aren’t doing your face any favors can be something of a challenge. A lip augmentation can help you out by enabling you to enjoy fuller, plumper lips that better enhance your sense of facial harmony, and can even replace volume that’s been lost as part of the aging process.
What’s the Lip Augmentation Procedure Like?
Most procedures use some type of wrinkle filler to enhance the lips and surrounding areas. Fat, collagen or hyaluronic acid fillers are frequently used, with Restylane and Juvederm being common choices for many cosmetic surgeons.
Using a dental block to manage pain, the filler is injected along the natural tract of the vermillion border of the upper lip. The Cupid’s bow is molded according to the patient’s desires. The lower lips and corners of the mouth are treated next.
Doctor Rosen takes extra care to ensure a natural appearance is maintained in your lips so that injections may be conservative during your first visit. The filler is massaged to ensure proper contour and avoid bumps.
