Although the lips are one of the smallest features of your face and body, they can make a big impact on your overall appearance and beauty. Lips are considered most attractive when they are full, contoured, soft and smooth. How do your lips measure up? If you’d like to enhance the appearance or texture of your lips, you’ll be glad to know there are several options available to you – including both surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Reasons to Seek Lip Enhancement
There are many reasons why patients elect lip enhancement from our plastic surgery clinic in Orlando. Most patients are women who are unhappy with the way their lips have aged. This includes thinning lips that have lost plumpness as well as that desired definition of the cupid’s bow in their upper lip. Others may want to improve the balance or symmetry of their lips or smooth out wrinkles on and around their lips. Lip augmentation is a valued and simple solution to help patients look younger and increase their sex appeal.
Minimally Invasive Lip Enhancement
You don’t have to go under the knife to regain youthful, luscious lips. In fact, many women rely on non-invasive injectable fillers to maintain that desirable lip pout as they age. Lip fillers are unquestionably the easiest option in lip enhancement. Though the results are temporary, fillers can instantly add fullness and contour to aging lips without any downtime or recovery. In fact, injecting the lips only takes just minutes and can be done as an in-office procedure.
Some of the most preferred injectable fillers for lip enhancement include Juvéderm Ultra XC, Juverderm Volbella, and Restylane Silk. The choice and placement of lip filler is strategically decided by your plastic surgeon based on your specific type of concern (wrinkles, thinning, definition, etc).
Surgical Lip Augmentation Options
If you want a more permanent enhancement of lip fullness and smoothing, it is best to consider surgical lip augmentation. This can be performed in a variety of ways, including fat transfer, dermal grafts, implants or a lip lift. Although the procedure time, cost and recovery of these options are much higher than lip fillers, the results are highly effective and permanent.
