Lip lift, Lip Augmentation, and Facial Fillers

The Surgery

Lips that are full and healthy bring an undeniable attractiveness and balance to the face. Dr. Paul’s conservative approach to lip augmentation ensures the most natural cosmetic results.  Lips can be enhanced during an office visit with an injection of soft filler, known as hyaluronic acid.  The results last anywhere from 4-8 months for most patients.   When a patient has a long upper white lip, a lift lip lift can be performed.  This shortening of the upper lip has many cosmetic advantages in the correctly selected patient such as more red lip show and better teeth exposure during smile.

Fillers can be used to enhance volume.  Common location for filler placement includes:

  • Lips
  • Marionette Lines
  • NasoLabial Folds
  • Cheeks
  • Nose

Lip Enhancement

Lip enhancement is a targeted procedure designed to restore fullness and balance between the upper and lower lip. A common request, Dr. Paul believes subtle lip augmentation is the most attractive form of cosmetic enhancement to the lips and tailors his approach to each patient.

With a keen eye for detail and symmetry, Dr. Paul performs only natural looking lip enhancement or reduction surgery for the most luscious lips possible.

Dr. Paul feels the very best lip augmentation procedures compliment the face without distracting from the other features. For this reason, all lip reduction and enhancement procedures are practiced with great restraint and careful consideration for the proportions of the face. For fuller lips, Dr. Paul injects temporary or permanent filler material directly into the lips.

Procedure Details

Lip lift

A lip lift is an operation performed in an OR with local anesthesia or deep sedation.  An incision under the base of the nose in a natural camoflauge zone allows for the removal of skin in a curvilinear shape. This shortening of the upper lip will produce more red lip show, more teeth show when smiling, and can be strikingly beautiful for the right patient. Patients are often able to work from home the next day. Sutures remain for 1 week.

Lip Reduction

To reduce the size of the lips or restore balance to the upper and lower lips, Dr. Paul carefully removes excess fat or previously injected filler or silicone from the lips.
