Don’t Love your Smile? Maybe it’s your Lips!

Friday, July 15th, 2016


lip augmentation fresnoOf the various cosmetic concerns we hear on a daily basis, thin and deflated lips are nearing the top of the list. The interest in fuller, more defined lips has increased substantially in the last year, after Kardashian sister Kylie Jenner revealed the source of her more pronounced pout. When we look at her, we can completely understand why so many women are seeking lip augmentation from their trusted physicians. However, we also realize that there is a need for fact-finding and consideration before jumping in to a  month-long commitment with soft tissue fillers.

When Lip Augmentation is Appropriate

Just like many other cosmetic treatments, there are situations for which lip augmentation is appropriate and just as many situations where it may not be. Some of the concerns that strategic lip injections can address include:

  • Loss of fullness and thinning due to age.
  • Lips are naturally thin, and tend to become even thinner when you smile.
  • The lips are not in proportion with other facial features, and need to be made more prominent.

If you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your lips, you may be a good candidate for lip augmentation with the appropriate soft tissue filler. At this time, the most common product used for lip augmentation is hyaluronic acid. Fillers such as Juvederm are based on this sugar compound, which binds to thousands of tiny water molecules beneath the skin.

There are several advantages to the temporary plumping of the lips with the right dermal filler, and the right injector. One of the most obvious is that results last only a few months. Also, Hyaluronic acid is a substance that can be counteracted if necessary. That being said, we use meticulous technique through which the gradual change in the size and shape of the lips is observed bit by bit. This process prevents us from overfilling, and enables us to achieve a result you will love.

Augmentation with injections of soft tissue filler may be an outstanding way for you to rejuvenate your facial aesthetic. Learn more at 559-435-7546.
