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.
