Attractive lips have very distinct features and proportions, as well as the alignment and degrees of tapering which must be minded when enhancing or filling the lips. The upper lip has very definite features unto itself: a prominent white roll, the Cupid’s bow, two philtral columns at the center above the upper lip, and the points where the features peak and connect. The opposite structures of the lower lip should complement the upper lip. The plastic surgeon must pay attention to each element in exacting detail in order to achieve an attractive and natural looking lip enhancement.
Thanks to the addition of local anesthetic to fillers and the expertise of Dr. Yovino, the thirty-minute lip enhancement procedure does not require dental nerve blocks or direct injections for numbing, and any swelling that may occur is usually minimal and can be managed with ice packs. Lip enhancement yields immediate results which will usually last from six months up to one year. Dermal fillers can be reinjected as needed to retain the revitalized and youthful look.
Whether you are concerned that your lips have lost their fullness and beauty or you would like to erase the fine lines and wrinkles that have begun to develop around your lips, contact Dr. Yovino today to arrange for an initial consultation to determine if you would benefit from the many advantages of lip enhancement.
