Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. After seeing some bad results on other people, patients are afraid of having lips that look extremely unnatural. If your surgeon is a professional that prefers results that look natural, your friends might ask if you have changed your hair color or makeup style as you will look young, fresh and beautiful.
French Lips is a new lip augmentation technique that uses hyaluronic acid to deliver pouty lips that look completely natural.
The decision as to which lip enhancement procedure is right for you is based on your aesthetic goals and your anatomy, along with your surgeon’s expert opinion.
Your surgeon will add some volume to your lips and see how it looks. Full volume should not be added at once.
An accurate physical examination determines the specific area of deficiency or desired enhancement. Specifically, evaluate the patient’s occlusion, maxillary-mandibular relations, and aging pattern. A general evaluation of the relation between the upper lip and the incisors reveals the appropriate course of action.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips. These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called hyaluronic acid fillers. These are fillers that are used for lip augmentation. I prefer using the fillers that are FDA approved, lasting 1-2 years.
We might use the patients’ own fatty tissue for the procedure. Fat transfers are performed by liposuctioning some fat from the abdomen or thighs and transferring it with specialized syringes and instruments into the lips.
Throughout the past several decades, there has been a dramatic increase in cosmetic surgery with a focus on achieving aesthetic ideals and maintaining a youthful appearance. Full, pouty lips have become increasingly desirable, as they are considered both appealing and beautiful. The problem is that lips age with the rest of the face, and aging clients may experience atrophy of the lips, where tiny vertical lines appear and the graceful “Cupid’s Bow” (curve of your upper lip) begins to flatten. Younger clients who are born with naturally thin lips often want a more defined “Cupid’s Bow” and great lip volume to balance the other features of their face.
Most requested lips among our patients are usually those of celebrities’. Angelina Jolie might look with her plump lips but those are not for everyone. Your facial features are different. Your upper lip should be 1/2 thinner than your lower lip, this is the perfect measurement for ideal lips.
