Lip augmentation, or surgery to increase the size of the lips is a common procedure for many men and women. But there is also surgery to reduce the size of the lips, and to bring them into a better proportion to the rest of the face.
Lip reduction surgery can be beneficial for people who feel their lips are too large, or who become self-conscious about them.
If you have thin lips and want them fuller, there are typically a number of options, including lip augmentation or fillers that make the lips look fuller. But if you have very thin lips, it may be necessary to increase the Vermillion, or the “red” area of the lips to get the desired impact. This is where Lip Advancement comes in. Lip Advancement concentrates on the Vermillion area to give you thicker, more noticeable lips.
A lip lift can be used to address a number of issues. If you smile and your upper teeth aren’t exposed, a lip lift can help correct this. If you the corners of your mouth are turned down and make you seem like you’re frowning, a lip lift can correct this. Lip lifts can also reverse the effects of aging and eliminate smoker’s lines. A lip lift could be right for you if you want your upper teeth to be more visible when you smile, if you feel your lips make you look older, or if you want to make subtle positive changes in your facial expression.
The lips can be one of the most beautiful and expressive features of the human face. Augmentation of the shape or volume of the lips can significantly enhance facial appearance.
Augmentation of the lips is accomplished using various materials that help “plump” the lips, creating fullness and decreasing vertical lines. Some of the most popular procedures include dermal fillers, fat transfers and surgical lip implants.
