Full, luscious lips are a desireable look, regardless of age. Lip augmentation creates fuller, plumper lips and reduces fine lines around the mouth for a more youthful appearance.
This outpatient surgery begins with an incision at the vermilion border of the lip (the edge of the lip where the red color begins). A matching incision is then made slightly above that in the skin and the piece of skin between the two is removed. The vermilion border is then moved upward to meet the skin and reattached to it with sutures. The same is done, in reverse, to the lower lip if correction is desired there as well.
SOFTFORM IMPLANTATION TECHNIQUE
SoftForm is a soft, permanent filler material used to smooth out facial wrinkles and creases. It is threaded into areas below the surface of the skin through two small incisions. It is also used to enhance the appearance and shape of the lips by providing a more defined lip border.
