Turn thin lips into a full, sexy pout.
For those who are unhappy with the fullness or shape of their lips, many options are available to redefine the lips, and add fullness and smoothness – with or without surgery.
For those who would like to enhance their lips without surgery, Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons offer several lip filler options. Products such as Juvederm®, Restylane® and Perlane® enhance the lips with hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally-occurring substance in the body. Other available filler materials include collagen derived from human sources, and Radiesse®, which is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, an element found in the bones and teeth, that stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production. Fat injections, also known as fat transfers or liposculpture, take a person’s unwanted fat (usually from the abdomen) and inject it into the lips to add volume.
Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons also perform the full range of lip enhancement procedures, including several surgical techniques. The V-Y advancement flap procedure uses the lining on the inside of the lip to add permanent, natural-looking fullness to the outer lips. An indirect lift of the upper lip addresses an overly long lip and reveals more of the upper teeth. A lip tuck of either the upper or lower lip may be recommended to pull the red part of the lip outward, so the lips look fuller and more attractive. With a corner lip lift, the lips are turned up slightly for a more youthful appearance. Dermal/fascia grafts use tissue or skin that has been removed from another part of the body to add fullness to one or both lips. This is often done during a facelift procedure when other tissue is readily available.
The best way to know which lip enhancement procedure is right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, the details of the procedure, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have.
The first step is to schedule an appointment. Scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
