When you look at yourself in the mirror, and especially when you focus your gaze around your mouth and around your lips, how do you feel? Do you like what you see? Or are you bothered by the creases that have appeared in your lips over time? When your lips are thin or when they are not balanced, it can negatively affect your entire appearance. For many people, lip augmentation has been the answer to their problem. This is a cosmetic procedure designed to either make your lips fuller or IMPROVE their shape.
Since your lips are such an important part of your overall aesthetic appearance, they are the focal point of your face. When people look at you, they look at your eyes, your nose and your lips. If your lips are so thin or so uneven that they all but disappear, lip augmentation may be the right choice for you.
It could be that when you were younger, you had full and attractive lips. However, as you’ve gotten older, some of your lip volume has disappeared. As your lips have thinned, they have become out of proportion with the rest of your facial features. Lip augmentation can reverse this trend.
As your lips lose volume, they start to develop fine lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles around the mouth are one of the most noticeable facial changes that happens with aging. Lip augmentation gives you plumper lips, restoring the volume and the structure of your lips. This fixes the dimensional ratio between your mouth and your nose, giving your face the volume that you want.
No two people have the same face, so no two people will need the exact same type of lip augmentation. For this reason, there are different techniques that are used based on what you want and based on what our board-certified FACIAL plastic surgeon Dr. Dayan feels is right for your face.
If you feel that your lips are too thin, if the shape and size of your lips makes you unhappy or if you feel that your lips have thinned with age, then you should learn more about lip augmentation at the office of Dr. Steven Dayan in Chicago.
