For thousands of years a woman’s lips have been viewed as a sign of sexuality. Movie stars like Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson and Alicia Silverstone have become famous for their plump, pouting red lips. And let’s face it, thin, dry lips are quite a turn off!
If you are wondering if you could benefit from lip enhancement call our office at 1-888-583-8884 to arrange a consultation.
Unfortunately not everyone is blessed with luscious lips. The few who are don’t keep them too long as the sun, other elements, smoking and the aging process take toll.
What is lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation is one of the most frequently requested cosmetic procedures. Options range from laser treatments to natural fillers to synthetic implants.
Cosmetic fillers are the most popular and involve getting injected with fat, collagen or Restylane to enhance shape and look. Over time the filler gets absorbed into the body so to keep those full lips you need multiple treatments over time.
Implants are permanent and achieved by surgically implanting materials into the upper or lower lip. Under anesthesia, a natural material like the collagen AlloDerm, or synthetic material like Gore-Tex, is inserted through tiny incision made inside the corners of the mouth.
The procedures are painless during the operation, but there is some discomfort afterward.
Before you decide to have lip augmentation or enhancement think about your expectations and discuss them with the doctor. Call us today at 1-888-583-8884 to make an appointment.
