Featured Image

Are you looking to rejuvenate your lips and enhance your smile? Lip rejuvenation procedures can work wonders, bringing balance and harmony to your facial features. In this blog post, we'll explore various options for lip enhancement, including upper lip lifts, bullhorn lip lifts, corner of the mouth lifts, and lip fillers. Discover the possibilities and find the perfect solution to achieve the lips you've always dreamed of.

1. Bullhorn Lip Lift: Elegance and Balance

For those seeking a subtle but effective enhancement, the bullhorn lip lift is an excellent choice. This procedure focuses on the central portion of the upper lip. It involves creating a small incision just beneath the nose, which is carefully concealed. By gently lifting the lip, this technique brings symmetry and balance to your smile. The result is a more refined and harmonious appearance that appears entirely natural.  The amount of skin removed can be customized to more conservative or more aggressive depending on the goals of each patient.  The vertical lines that can be seen in the upper lip (smoker's lines) can be partially improved with this technique because of the separation of the skin from the muscle.

2. Corner of the Mouth Lift: Uplifting Your Expression

The corners of your mouth play a crucial role in conveying your emotions. As we age, they may start to droop, creating an unintentional frown. A corner of the mouth lift can reverse this effect, turning your expression into a cheerful and vibrant one. This simple procedure involves lifting and repositioning the corners of your mouth, restoring a more youthful and joyful appearance.  Sometimes a small amount of filler can also be placed in the area to help stabilize the corner of the mouth as well.

3. Lip Fillers: Plump and Perfect

Lip fillers are a non-surgical option for enhancing the fullness and shape of your lips. They offer flexibility, allowing you to customize the level of enhancement to your liking. Whether you want a subtle plump or more noticeable volume, lip fillers can create beautiful, kissable lips. The results are immediate, and there's little to no downtime.  Each of the filler products we use has local anesthetic in the product so as we are placing the filler the lips become numb

Alternatively we can perform a dental block and with a little upfront pain the rest of the lip filler could be painless.

4. Resurfacing of the perioral skin

When there are rhytids or wrinkles in the skin around the mouth this can be improved using chemical peels, lasers, microneedling, RF microneedling, or dermabrasion.  Which technique recommended will depend on the amount of damage to the skin, skin type, and downtime that you can tolerate.  Improving the skin quality, texture, color can be the icing on the cake to improving the whole area once the relative position of the different elements of the lips, and volume are adjusted.

Choosing the Right Procedure for You

When considering lip rejuvenation, it's essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon or a qualified practitioner. During your consultation, your provider will assess your unique facial features, discuss your goals, and recommend the most suitable option for you. The choice between surgical procedures like the upper lip lift and bullhorn lip lift and non-surgical options like lip fillers depends on your specific needs and desires.

The Artistry of Lip Enhancement

Lip rejuvenation and enhancement are as much about artistry as they are about science. Your chosen provider should have a keen eye for aesthetics and a deep understanding of facial harmony. The goal is not just to create fuller lips but to enhance your overall facial beauty.
