Well defined, relatively full lips contribute to a classically desirable facial aesthetic.
Individuals of any age may request refinement of their lip shape. Alternatively, lips may be addressed as part of facial rejuvenation surgery, because as we age lips lose volume and shape.
The upper and lower lips are broadly similar, but when examined more closely have very different aesthetic landmarks, contours and relative projections. Detailed knowledge of these differences allows for sympathetic and gentle augmentation of lip fullness. If these key details are respected, then lip augmentation should never result in a ‘trout pout’ – that infamous, unnatural effect seen when the upper lip has been over-projected relative to the lower lip.
The most common technique for lip enhancement is the use of injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Juvederm® or Volbella®. These are safe, temporary fillers that augment volume or redefine landmarks. Results are predictable and last for approximately 3 to 4 months. The procedure is quick to undertake (15 minutes only), with minimal downtime.
