Dr. Albert Fox provides aesthetic lip enhancement. Purely cosmetic lip enhancement/augmentation can be performed with soft-tissue fillers such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®. Dr. Fox uses fillers to provide natural appearing lips, that demonstrate a pleasing shape and contour.
Lip lines can be treated with various fillers, such as Volbella. Volbella is an ideal filler that can help erase lip lines due to aging, sun exposure, or smoking. Laser treatments, such as fractionated CO2 laser can also be used to improve lip lines. Dermabrasion of lip lines may be another option. Dr. Albert Fox will help determine what treatment is right for you.
A lip lift is a surgical procedure performed to pick up the upper lip and improve the lip’s contour and fullness. It is performed through a small incision just under the nose. A lip lift can help to restore a more youthful facial balance and contour around the mouth. A lip lift can be performed under local or twilight sedation anesthesia. A lip lift can help in the following additional ways:
- Shorten the lip length between the nose and mouth (lengthening is often seen as a result of the aging process)
- Improve lipstick bleed lines and wrinkles
- Improve lip volume without need for fillers or decrease the need for fillers
- Improve lip eversion and show of the lip
- Helps to make the lower face appear more youthful
- Improve facial balance and harmony
