Lip Augmentation Beverly Hills – Lip Enhancement
People look at your lips when you are talking, but they also look at your lips when you are not talking. That is because the lips are also very important for nonverbal communication. The lips tell others about your mood and they are extremely important for your femininity. Lip augmentation is a procedure to give you fuller lips. Fuller lips are more youthful and sensual lips.
As we age, the upper lip loses volume and becomes thinner, and it also begins to roll inward into the mouth. Vertical lines may appear above the upper lip. These vertical lines become even more visible after applying lipstick because the lipstick will be somewhat irregular. The corners of the lips also tend to begin pointing downward, resulting in a sad and elderly appearance.
An injectable dermal filler, like Juvederm, can be used for temporary improvement. This is an easy office procedure with little or no down time. The filler will also turn the lips slightly outward and somewhat improve the vertical lines on the upper lip. When injected into the corners of the lips, you will get a more happy and youthful look. These fillers will only provide a temporary improvement, usually 6 months.
If you have been satisfied with dermal fillers, but are looking for a more permanent fix, there are other options. A graft can be surgically placed into the lips. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Dass, prefers to use natural grafts harvested from your body. Fat is a nice, natural filler, that can be harvested from another area and injected into your lips for augmentation. The fat can also be injected around the mouth to improve some of the vertical wrinkles and the corners of the lip. Fat injections can easily be performed at the same time as other procedures, like liposuction, to reduce your overall costs.
If the wrinkles around the lips are quite substantial, you may further benefit from resurfacing of the skin around the lips, with dermabrasion or a peel.
