There are lots of things that change about our appearance as we age. When it comes to the face, it’s not just lines and wrinkles that make us look older. In fact, we lose volume in some places – and the lips are no exception.
The good news is that Dr. Atagi can help restore natural, full-looking lips. Fortunately, we’re not talking about the over-plumped or overdone pouts of Hollywood horror stories. Rather, Dr. Atagi strives to bring a more classic, beautiful appearance to the lips.
While dermal fillers are FDA approved for use around the perimeter of the lips to mimic lip plumping, Dr. Atagi recommends natural and permanent results. Dr. Atagi places an soft, delicately tapered implant in the upper and/or lower lip. The SurgiSil lip implant cannot rupture or deflate, and can be easily removed at any time. It comes in a variety of sizes to ensure that your smile is picture-perfect.
The lip augmentation procedure is performed in our office under local anesthesia. It takes about an hour and a half, and patients can resume normal activities the following day.
For the ultimate in kissable lips, Dr. Atagi also recommends ProFractional around the mouth to help restore a youthful look to the skin and erase imperfections such as smoker’s lines.
