Why a lip augmentation can really make the face

The lips are a focal part of our face. So much of what we do comes from the lips – talking, eating, smiling, laughing, expressing.

As such, people pay close attention to our lips, and how our lips look heavily influence the face’s overall appearance.

In many cases, an attractive, sensual set of lips comes as a genetic gift. Full, pouting lips positioned high on the face are considered the most gorgeous lip variant.

If you aren’t among the lucky few to get beautiful lips from birth, or if the aging process has caused your lips to lose their volume and supple position, then lip augmentation can make all the difference.

Here, the expert team at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center in New Orleans, LA, take a look at precisely what lip augmentation means, the different procedures available to those wanting to manipulate their appearance lips, and whether the procedure is right for you.

What is lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation is simply a term that refers to changing the appearance of the lips.

Most frequently, this is achieved with dermal fillers, or via minimally-invasive lip surgery.

Which approach best suits you will depend on your personal circumstances, lifestyle, and desired outcome for the procedure.

Dermal Fillers

One hugely popular way of augmenting the appearance of the lips is by using dermal fillers.

Made famous by the likes of Kylie Jenner, lip fillers have exploded in popularity and for a good reason – they are fast, affordable, and effective.

By injecting your lips with the right amount of dermal fillers, your cosmetic surgeons at Etre can provide more volume, pout, and vitality to your lips, which will change the entire countenance of your face.

Lip Lift

In other cases, lip augmentation may require a more hands-on approach, in which case a lip lift is the most appropriate choice.

As we age, or according to genetics, the upper lip might sag and increase the distance between the nose and upper lip.

Traditionally, people perceive those with a small gap between the nose and upper lip to be more youthful, energetic and attractive, and this is why the lip lift reduces the gap between the upper lip and nose.

The surgery is fast and only requires local anesthesia, meaning patients can get back to their daily routine immediately after the procedure. A lip lift is achieved by excising small amounts of skin just underneath the nose and then suturing the remaining skin together, thus pulling the upper lip up towards the nose.
