Full, sensuous lips are a sign of youth and beauty. As we age, the red portion of the lip shrinks in size. This thinning decreases the projection of the lip in both the frontal and profile view. Enhancement of this red portion can add tremendous improvement to the smile as well as facial expression
The addition of volume to the lips creates a more sensuous look. This can be accomplished a number of ways. Various filler substances can be injected into both the upper and lower lip to increase fullness. Fat harvested from the patient can be inserted into the lip to create fuller lips. Other fillers such as Restylane, Hylaform, Alloderm, collagen, etc. can be inserted as well.
