Have your lips thinned a bit with age? Do you dream of fuller lips that still look natural? Those two things don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Many practices use injectable dermal fillers for lip augmentation. Unfortunately, these results only last a few months and must be continuously reapplied to maintain full, voluptuous lips. Dr. Slupchynskyj performs surgical lip augmentation, a procedure that provides lasting results and eliminates the common problem of overfilled duck lips. Enhance your lips while still keeping a natural appearance with surgical lip augmentation. No duck lips here!
WHAT IS SURGICAL LIP AUGMENTATION?
Bigger isn’t always better. When it comes to lips, too big can be disastrous. Dr. Slupchynskyj likes to call this procedure lip enhancement surgery because that’s exactly what it does—it enhances and perfects your natural lips. As you get older, the lips can undergo some changes. They may get longer, turn down at the corners, get thinner, and become looser. Adding fillers does certainly increase volume in the lips, but it doesn’t address the underlying age-related structural issues. Surgical lip enhancement corrects these problems, whereas dermal fillers can only increase size.
We aren’t against using fillers to augment the lips. In fact, we often use them in conjunction with lip enhancement surgery to add a bit of volume after the shape of the lips is rejuvenated. Dermal fillers are an excellent complement to lip enhancement surgery for patients who need increased volume. However, they aren’t necessarily the best solution for thinning, aging lips.
GETTING THE BEST RESULTS FROM YOU LIP ENHANCEMENT SURGERY
Natural looking lip augmentation results start with your surgeon. Make sure you choose a highly skilled surgeon for your procedure. Dr. Slupchynskyj has had patients travel across the world for an opportunity to receive surgical lip enhancement from him. Our way of doing lip augmentation is unique; most doctors will simply recommend fillers. Our surgical technique ensures that you won’t end up with overfilled duck lips. Dr. Slupchynskyj seeks to shape and enhance the lips, not just increase their size.
Another important consideration for getting good results from your procedure is that you stop smoking. We recommend that patients stop smoking for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery. Most patients take about 7-10 days to recover from this procedure.
