What does non-surgical lip augmentation entail?

While we know that our face tends to lose fullness and begins to droop as we age, our lips go through similar changes. The lips age by losing volume in the red lip as well as the white part of the lip (above the pink part where men grow their moustaches). Also, as the lips age, the white part of the lip loses elasticity causing the lip to stretch and also causing the red lip to roll in, making it look thinner. In addition, the cushion in between the lip muscle and skin decreases with age, allowing the muscle to create vertical lipstick lines in the white lip.

The MM Lift™ for Lips is a nonsurgical advanced lip recontouring procedure involving the lip tissues. This is a nonsurgical technique used to achieve a number of outcomes. It can be used to add definition to the lips, soften lines around the lips, add volume to the lips, treat asymmetries of the lips, lift the corners of the mouth, or perform a nonsurgical lip lift. Most commonly, this procedure is used to add definition to the lip tissues and raise the corners of the mouth though it can also be used to create symmetry, harmony, treat lines, adjust shadows, or add volume in a natural manner.

What fillers are used to enhance the lips?

A combination of fillers may be needed to achieve the desired result. Because of the heavy use of oral musculature in this area, results are customized and are highly variable since almost everyone has a different shaped lip and different movement of their lip muscles.

In the end, the patient should expect a well-defined lip contour and a natural lip fullness. When the primary goal is adding volume or plumpness, more than one syringe of the discussed volumizer may be needed.

Juvederm, Restylane, Restylane Refyne / Defyne, or Revanesse Versa may be used to add plumpness. Vertical lipstick lines around the red lip vermillion border can also be softened by adding volume in the form of Juvederm, Restylane, or Belotero.

Am I a good candidate for lip augmentation?

If you are less than happy with the appearance of aging, thinning or wrinkled lips, a non-surgical lip augmentation may be a great fit for your goals. The best way to find out for sure is to contact our Alpharetta office near Atlanta today to schedule a confidential consultation with our team. If for some reason lip enhancement with fillers isn’t right for you, our doctors can suggest viable alternatives, such as a lip implant or fat grafting.

What will my recovery entail?

Swelling and bruising is more variable with lip lift injections. A soft, flexible, blunt cannula will still be used instead of a firm, penetrating needle in all cases except for multiple deep lines around the mouth in which case, a thin, fine needle will be used to do a better job. Nevertheless, the cannula truly minimizes downtime for 95% of patients, though less than 5% of patients can still have swelling or bruising for 1-4 days. In the event of bruising, it is usually pinpoint in size and can easily be covered with makeup.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
