Well-defined rather fuller lips with a central pout are considered iconic and desirable. Some people are blessed with beautiful lips like Angelina Jolie that look beautiful at any age. For the most of us lips age as the rest of the face does. Some of the initial signs of aging include thinning of the upper lip followed by the lower lip, loss of central pout and subsequently loss or flattening of the cupid’s bow on the upper lip, drooping of the corners of the mouth along with the appearance of the fine lines around the lips.
These changes not only get progressively more prominent but also worsen with time. Patients seeking lip augmentation come from all races and all age groups. Some of these patients might benefit from simple filler injections in their lips such as Hyaluronic Acid which is a natural constituent of our skin’s foundation. Some patients might require fat injections as they might have extremely thin lips and thin skin. Some patients might desire a rather long term solution to the thinning of their lips. For such patients a simple surgical procedure can be done to give them a shape of the lip that is devoid of any fillers or implants and is free of scars!
The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and the patients are awake for the procedure. The procedure results in a fuller central pout and fullness of the edges of the lips. The procedure is performed on the inside of the lips hence there is no scar!! And it heals well within a week giving you a natural youthful lip without any fillers or implants.
