It’s said that the eyes are the windows to the soul… they have the power to communicate how we feel without having to say a word. The mouth, on the other hand, is said to be the door to the heart. It is in a constant state of movement, whether we’re smiling, talking or puckering. Let’s face it: The lips get a lot of attention. So if yours aren’t quite where you want them to be, it’s definitely worth taking a look at today’s lip and mouth enhancement options.
Lip Size & Shape
You may have thin lips. One may be fuller than the other. Or you may have equally sized lips. Maybe your lips have changed with age. In any of these cases, if you’re looking to enhance or change the size or shape of your lips, you’ve got options!
Lip injections with dermal fillers is one of the most popular facial enhancement procedures today and for good reason. There are many filler options for lip enhancement, but there’s only one that’s been developed and FDA approved specifically for the lips: Juvéderm’s Volbella. It’s designed to deliver natural-looking, longer lasting results and it’s only available in select plastic surgeon’s offices across the country. We’re happy to say that we are one of them! Lip enhancement with injections is temporary, so repeat treatments are necessary to maintain your results, but downtime is minimal, usually just one day.
If you’re looking for more permanent results, there’s the implant option too. Because lip implants are inserted through the corners of the mouth, there’s a little more downtime involved, but the tradeoff with lip injections is that it’s a one-time procedure.
It isn’t always just the lips that deserve a little attention. The area around the mouth and lips sometimes also needs some TLC.
Smoker’s Lines — Don’t like all those little vertical lines around your lips? They can be treated with fillers, laser resurfacing and Botox.
Drooping Mouth Corners — If the corners of your mouth droop downward, you can turn that frown upside down with the help of a little bit of strategically place filler. In some cases, Botox can also help by relaxing the muscles that may be pulling the corners of your mouth down.
Gummy Smile — If your smile reveals an excessive amount of gums, there’s a surgery for that. And it only takes around an hour. Not sure if you’re going to like the results? Not to worry: Dr. Davis can use Botox to show you what the results will look like before surgery!
Upper Lip Lift — If the skin between your nose and upper lift is too long, you can have it shortened with surgery. Excess skin is removed, leaving a small scar that’s hidden at the base of the nose. Just to make sure this is the treatment you’re looking for, Botox can be used first to give you an idea of what the surgical results will look like.
