Lip enhancement is a very popular procedure that can transform understated or deflated lips into more youthful, attractive and even alluring ones. Unfortunately, not everyone can realize equal benefits regarding their ultimate results due to basic structural differences of their lips. Women who can expect the best outcomes are those who already have or had anatomically fairly large lips in a vertical dimension. Their lips can be expanded considerably with injectable hyaluronic acids such as Juvederm® or Restylane®, allowing for more latitude in obtaining the desired contour and enhancement. Many just want even more fullness than they were blessed with; others have lost volume as part of the aging process and them to be rejuvenated for a more youthful appearance.
Women who have very thin lips with little show of the colored part can also benefit but their anatomy restricts the extent and quality of the potential enlargement. No matter how much filler is injected, they will never have a very full and pouty contour. However, their lips will still be larger, fuller and more visible.
As long as you can appreciate the individual limitations, lip enhancement (enlargement) may be just right for you. Injectable agents like Juvederm® and Restylane® can provide you with a simple and affordable way to transform your understated or small lips into more attractive, alluring ones. With advances in techniques and the recent introduction of Juvederm® XC which contains a local anesthetic, the treatments can be quite comfortable with virtually no downtime.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19
In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.
We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.
For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.
In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.
We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
