Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation has become a very popular procedure in facial plastic surgery. Fuller lips are a symbol of youth, health, and sexual vitality. In some of us thin lips may be a family trait. However, thinning of the lips occurs in all of us with advancing age. As lips lose fullness, the corners of the mouth also tend to sag giving a sad appearance to the face. A variety of non-surgical and surgical options are available to enhance the volume and shape of lips.

Thin and aging lips with drooping corners are common concerns of our Monroe, West Monroe, and North Louisiana lip augmentation patients and can often give a sad appearance to the face. Thin lips can be inherited or may be one of the changes seen in the aging face. Full, round, plump lips can improve self-confidence, sexual appeal, and are considered a sign of beauty and vitality in today’s society.

Who can benefit from lip augmentation?

If you desire fuller lips with more kissable area, then lip augmentation could be right for you. An injection of Juvederm can enhance shape and add volume to the lip area. Lip augmentation may also correct several cosmetic imperfections such as the following:

  • Thin lips
  • Flat lips
  • Wrinkles around the lips
  • Asymmetry of the lips
  • Vertical perioral lines

Am I a Candidate for Lip Augmentation?

Suitable candidates for a lip augmentation or implant procedure are men or women with thin lips who are seeking to make them larger and fuller. As we age, it is common for the lips to thin out due to a lack of collagen, so lip augmentation implants can restore a plump pout. Non-surgical procedures such as temporary dermal fillers, are an excellent to try and test your desired look before deciding on something permanent. You can find out more about the different types of fillers and brands such as Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse, by going to the Medispa section.

Dr. Mickel is a true artist…very personable, seems to honestly love what he does. Excellent touch when administering fillers, very little pain, very natural looking. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a doctor who isn’t going to push you into a procedure that won’t work for you and are looking for an honest appraisal of what he can or can’t do for you.
