Lip Augmentation Procedures at Advanced Hair & Skin Surgery

This is a very common cosmetic medical procedure, but unfortunately, one that is also commonly poorly done and painful. We have all seen celebrities like Melanie Griffiths, Goldie Hawn, and others with lips that look terrible.  We all see unnatural lip results every day in our own community. It seems to become more common each year. As in all cosmetic procedures, beautiful work goes unnoticed and it is the unnatural and bizarre that is the visible example. It doesn’t have to be this way!

Dr. Elliott has filler in his lips. Dr. Elliott’s staff have had lip fillers too, but you can’t tell because all you see is beautiful natural lips. If you would like to have fuller, younger, and more feminine lips, don’t think of the lips you saw yesterday at Costco. Instead, come and see theirs.

What Worries You?

It’s normal to want fuller, younger, sexier looking lips. Patients always tell Dr. Elliott that their main worry is looking unnatural. It’s his main worry too! He won’t do lip enhancement that looks unnatural, but it’s hard to believe that with all the disfigured lips out there. Discuss your goals with him face to face.

    Lip augmentation without proper technique and anesthetic hurts. There is no two ways about it. The fillers must be injected and needles in your lip are painful. Newer forms of the popular fillers like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® contain the anesthetic lidocaine. A great idea, but one that doesn’t solve the problem of the pain of the needles. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way. Dr. Elliott doesn’t use needles to inject your lips. He developed his micro-cannula technique more than 10 years ago and has since taught it to hundreds of injectors. If done properly, there is virtually no pain. No needles also means dramatically less bleeding and bruising.

    Dr. Elliott offers advanced, painless, short-acting dental blocks for patients who request it for lip enhancements. This means is that your lips are completely numb when he does the filler injections. You can relax when you are not in pain. It also means less bruising, because if you are in pain, your blood pressure goes up and you bruise more. The anesthetics he uses are specialized and last as little as 20 minutes.

    Unnatural Lips

    Some of the common aesthetic failings that we all see in lips that don’t look natural are too much upper lip volume (sausage lip), too much protrusion of the upper lip (duck lips), lack of shape and definition (balloon lips), or just plain uneven lips. See an expert like Dr. Elliott and discuss the shape of your lips and the ideal plan for enhancement

    Natural, beautiful lips have nice lower lip fullness, often with a lower lip central pout and slight cleft, in balance but not overshadowed by upper lip fullness. The upper lip should have a nicely defined cupid’s bow and shapely curves toward the corners of the lip. Call us today for more information!
