Luscious lips are often the envy of others, as they represent the essence of a youthful, healthy, beautiful appearance. While some women are born with full lips, many ladies are not. Even those that have been blessed with naturally puffy lips can experience a loss of shape and definition as they get older. No matter the reason you may be thinking of adding volume and contour to your lips, Dr. Leonard Miller, Dr. Sean Doherty, and the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery can offer the path to an envy-worthy pucker that looks both natural and proportionate with your facial features.
Noninvasive Lip Rejuvenation
While full lips have always been a sought-after feature, celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Angelina Jolie are inspiring more and more women, hoping for the same gorgeous pout, to seek the assistance of their trusted plastic surgeon. Luckily, soft tissue fillers can offer temporary lip rejuvenation without the commitment of silicone implants. Dermal fillers have long been trusted to plump facial lines and replace volume along the cheeks and jawline. This same idea works with great success for the lips.
Fillers such as Restylane, and Juvederm products can provide well-contoured lips in just one in-office session. Made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid (HA), these fillers pull in water from surrounding tissues, creating long-lasting results. Safe for even the most delicate tissues surrounding the mouth, fillers have few side effects and require no downtime.
One of the newest fillers designed to create luscious lips is Juvederm Volbella. This smooth gel filler uses a unique formulation of HA to add lift and definition to the lips. Not only does Volbella offer added contour, the injectable can ease lip lines (Smoker’s Lines) and provide definition to the upper Vermillion border (Cupid’s Bow) along the top lip. Premixed with lidocaine for optimal comfort, one session can provide lip rejuvenation that lasts for up to a full year.
Avoiding the Fake Look
With the state-of-the-art lip rejuvenation techniques, from the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, there is no need to be concerned about the dreaded ‘duck lips’. These are the result of over injecting fillers in the wrong area of the lip. For natural-looking lips, it is imperative that the injector knows which product to use, how much of it needs to be placed to reach the desired results, and exactly where to place each injection. Dr. Miller and Dr. Doherty understand precisely how to put the finishing touch into the lips, consistently creating an attractive appearance that doesn’t evoke a critical, “questioning” look from family and friends.
When patients put their trust in an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Miller or Dr. Doherty, their lip augmentation results will be significant, yet natural looking. As all filler injections are performed by Dr. Miller and Dr. Doherty, the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery ensures the safest and most satisfying results. Experts in noninvasive procedures, Dr. Miller and Dr. Doherty often train other doctors on the proper techniques for injectable treatments. Sitting on the advisory boards of the country’s most trusted aesthetic industry groups, Dr. Miller and Dr. Doherty are leading the way in cutting-edge injectable fillers.
