Looking for fuller, more youthful lips? Considering a lip augmentation? Dr. Lorelle Kramer, top cosmetic surgeon in Southeastern Wisconsin has been giving people beautiful, customized lips for 20 years. Whether you are looking for full and luscious lips, or soft and subtle lips, the choice is yours. Dr. Kramer always listens to what you want and does every injection herself.
A – Philtral Columns – The vertical ridges above the lip
B – Points to Upper Lip
C – Dimple
The 2 main reasons people have thin lips are genetics and aging. If it’s genetics, it means you probably had very small, flat lips your whole life. The lip changes seen with aging can be:
1. Thinning of the lips, especially the upper lip. It can actually look like the upper lip is disappearing.
2. Flattening of the upper lip, so you lose the points (B) to the upper lip line.
3. Flattening and elongating of the area above your upper lip. You lose the vertical ridges (A) above your lip and the dimple (C) that’s naturally found between the points of the upper lip.
4. Lengthening of the area between your nose and upper lip.The distance between your nose and lip actually increases which partially covers and hides your front teeth. Even when you smile, you can’t see your upper or front teeth as much as you used to.
I find that most patients would like fuller lips. The reasons vary, whether it’s aging, genetics or just a desire to have a more youthful, sexier look. The most common fear is that they will look too large, unnatural or artificial like some famous celebrities we’ve all seen.
Lip augmentation can be done safely and leave you with a great, sexy and natural look. When performed correctly, keeping the natural lip anatomy in mind, no one can tell who has it and who doesn’t.
Everyone looks better with fuller lips! A great, sexy look is to have fuller lips without crossing a natural line where you look fake or artificial.
There are two great options to enhance your lips. Fat injections and filler injections. Fat injections have become more popular because of new techniques that have been developed. The advantage of fat injections is that it is from your own body and it can be permanent. The concept behind fat grafting is that your body grows a blood supply to the fat that is injected and it can then become permanently fuller.
There are many great injectable fillers that are available to plump lips. For example, Juvederm XC®, Juvederm Ultra XC®, Restylane-L®, Restylane Silk®, Artefill(TM) or Artecoll(TM), and Bellafill®. This is a quick in-office treatment with little to no downtime, where the filler is injected with a very small needle. The lips can be plumped and you easily maintain a natural look by enhancing or re-creating the natural anatomy of the lips. This means besides enlarging the lips, you can enhance the points to the upper lip line and also re-create the philtral columns (the two vertical ridges above your upper lip.) It can be specifically placed to soften or eliminate wrinkles, including vertical lip lines. The entire upper lip, as well as the mouth, can be lifted to give a happier and sexier look.
An advantage of filler is that it is injectable which means placement can be extremely precise. With this precision, the natural anatomy can be enhanced or recreated which is the key to keeping a natural look.
Lip enhancement can be done in ways that may look unnatural, but this does not have to be the case. With expertise and precision, a natural and sexy look can be easily obtained.
