Have you always felt that your lips are too thin? Do they disappear when you smile? Are you self-conscious about the way they look? This might be the perfect time to consider lip enhancement, also known as lip augmentation or lip injections. Lip enhancement is just one of the many ways I can help you achieve a more beautiful face. To learn more, click here.
What does lip enhancement involve?
Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, lip enhancement can greatly improve your lips’ appearance as well as your self-confidence.
The most common technique for augmenting the lips is to use injections of your own fat, Juvéderm®, Restylane® or other prepared substances. Treatments are quick and easy and can keep your lips plump for months at a time, but as with all injected materials, treatments may need to be repeated periodically to maintain results.
One of the reasons I’ve had great success with lip enhancement is because I can control the amount of substance I inject, giving me better control over how much lip volume is created depending on each patient’s desired results.
You can successfully combine lip enhancement with other procedures
How to know if you are a good candidate for lip enhancement
If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure. Additional factors to consider:
- You want to plump up thin lips or create a fuller look
- When you smile, your top lip or both lips disappear
- Your lips are uneven
- The shape of your mouth and/or your gums show when you smile
- You have vertical lip lines
- You want your upper and lower lip to match
- You want to refine the shape of flat or thin lips
How much does lip enhancement cost?
Because every person’s lips are unique to them, I determine the exact cost of lip enhancement surgery only after I have met with the patient and together, we have decided what type of procedure will achieve the best possible results.
