One of the issues that come with aging is a natural slowdown in collagen production. When you produce less collagen, skin’s elasticity is compromised. This is especially evident in the skin on your lips, where the first signs of aging occur when the fullness and definition of your lips diminishes. It is even worse for smokers or those who have experienced a lot of sun damage over the years. These types of environmental damages can make your mouth look dramatically older. At Buinewicz Plastic Surgery, Dr. Buinewicz knows how to restore your lips to their original fullness and depth using lip augmentation to improve your overall appearance.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a simple procedure in which fullness and volume are added to the lips. This procedure can be performed on just the lower lip or just the upper lip or on both at the same time. During this procedure, the doctor will enhance certain aspects of your lips, to possibly reshape them, add fullness or increase volume. There are several methods the doctor can use to achieve this including implants and dermal fillers.
The staff at Buinewicz Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Buinewicz, has the ability to use an injectable dermal filler to plump your lips and make them fuller. Injectable dermal fillers are quick and effective and give patients the plump pout they want without surgery. They can also remove fine lines and deep wrinkles that surround the lips. Don’t be fooled by how fast and easy the treatment can be. It is very successful at creating fuller younger looking lips. Patients love dermal lip injections because they require no anesthesia, incisions or sedation. The doctor will often offer a topical numbing agent to patients who want to ease the discomfort of an injection. Dermal lip injections can be completed in a few minutes and unlike surgical procedures, there is no downtime. The best part is that the results last for six to nine months.
Details of Lip Injections
Should you choose to have a lip augmentation, there are several different dermal fillers to choose from. Companies are continually developing new fillers, so make sure to ask your doctor about the latest available products. The most popular dermal fillers on the market today are Radiesse, Juvederm products( Ultra, Ultra Plus, Vollure and Voluma), and Restylane products (Restylane L, Kysse, Defyne Refyne, Lyft). Each of these fillers contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps your body to produce collagen. Hyaluronic acid binds to moisture, so when it is injected into your lips, it hydrates them, leading to natural looking plump and youthful lips.
If you schedule a consultation at Buinewicz Plastic Surgery, Dr. Buinewicz will work with you to determine the best course of treatment based on the look you are hoping to achieve. He will evaluate your current appearance, ask you questions concerning your desired outcome and together you can decide which dermal filler is best for you. Dr. Buinewicz wants you to be happy with your results, so he makes sure to include you in all decisions every step of the way leading up to your procedure.
