Your lips are one of the first things people notice about you. It’s a rather subconscious effect, but the shape of your lips actually gives others an impression about your entire facial appearance, even if your lips aren’t being analyzed. Aging adults often find that their lips are becoming thinner and more horizontally stretched, and the natural dove swoop of the upper lip is beginning to disappear. Several treatments, most of them cosmetic in nature, can help restore the fuller lips you once had when you were younger. Lip augmentation can be performed as filler injections, implants and even alloderm grafting. Whether your lips are thinning due to the aging process or you have always had naturally thin lips, this procedure may be perfect for you.
What Lip Augmentation Can Do for You
It’s all about shape, structure and volume. Some individuals experience thinning lips that don’t hold as much moisture as they once did. Others are more concerned about the overall shape of the lips and wish to thicken the appearance of the lip perimeters. A small percentage of adults notice an uneven shape of the lips and seek a treatment that will balance the overall right-to-left appearance of the upper and lower lips.
Through the use of filler injections, alloderm grafting or implants, the lips can be plumped. The result is fuller lips that once more exhibit a youthful appearance. Depending on the severity and location of the lip condition, more than one augmentation procedure or technique may be used.
