Non Surgical Lip Enhancement
In today’s society in Geelong , large and full lips are highly desirous. This is most evident in the large plethora of lipstick and lip care products as well as being one of the top places on the face for the use of injectable fillers. Despite the trend to go bigger, there are a few patients who actually want their lips to be smaller. Most commonly, these are non-caucasian patients who naturally have very full lips or someone who has a rare congential facial problem which results in large lips, medically known as macrocheilia.
Facial fillers are the most popular types of face lift procedure today. They are used not just for enhancing sunken cheeks and lifting eyebrows - two facial problems often caused by aging. They can also improve the appearance of your eyes by filling up the lost volume on your eye sockets and temples and correcting the bags and dark, hollow areas around your eyes. In addition, they can restore sagging parts of your mouth, jaw, and chin. They have also become favorite solutions to give you plump lips and to eliminate wrinkles.
These treatments use very smooth gels made of complex sugars that are naturally occurring in your own skin. Because of these elements that they're using, they are sometimes called liquid face lift treatments. They are applied by injecting the product directly into the problem area. In some cases, enzyme is also injected to help the gel dissolve quickly.
If you wish to prolong the results you got from the treatment, you need to be given maintenance fillers every one or two years. Also, you need to be prepared to follow healthy habits, if you're not doing them yet. Be sure you have a healthy diet and consider taking health supplements rich in antioxidants. If you're a smoker, the doctor will also encourage you to stop the habit.
Lip reduction surgery is a fairly simple procedure that can be done under local anesthesia or some form of sedation. It involves a transverse elliptical excision of lip tissue that runs from one corner of the mouth to the other. The key is the location of the excised tissue and the resultant scar. The exposed portion of your lip, the pink portion, is called the vermilion. The vermilion has both a dry and wet surface. The wet portion of the vermilion is the non-exposed part that sits just below the highest point of the dry vermilion (lip line) on the inside of the mouth. Removing excess vermilion here and allowing the lip to roll back and look smaller places the fine line scar in a non-visible location.
Plastic Surgery of the Lips - Making One's Lips Smaller
I have always had a thin top lip, which has been more obvious when I smiled. I had previously considered cosmetic lip tattooing to give my lips more definition, however when I attended an appointment with a local Beautician about this procedure I changed my mind after viewing her before and after photos. Some of her 'after' photos made the customers look like they were wearing very Theatrical makeup, or like a Clown - in any case it just didn't look natural. Later, when I mentioned this to a friend, she told me about the non-surgical Botox Lip Enhancement procedure she'd been having recently in addition to the regular Botox treatments she had to remove frown lines. She said it was a new Advanced Botox procedure, and just a few hundred dollars. I hadn't noticed any difference in her face, but after she'd mentioned it, I could see that her lips looked nice and plump, and also completely natural. So I made an appointment to have my top lip enhanced with Botox too.
When I attended the appointment I was advised that Botox can be painful when injected into the lip area, however I did not find the procedure very painful. I was not given any type of pain relief, my lips were cleaned and four injections made along my top lip (one each side of the Cupid's Bow and one each side further along). It was a very quick procedure. I could feel a sting as the needle went in, however it was bearable and the needle seemed to be removed quickly with no after-pain at the injection sites at all.
I also initially noticed that my lips felt more natural/comfortable in unusual positions when I wasn't smiling. For at least the first week, with a normally closed mouth, it felt comfortable for my top lip to hang rested completely over the top of my bottom lip. Which is not a natural look - and if looking in the mirror when holding my lips this way, I definitely looked strange (if not slightly facially deformed!). I got used to holding my lips together properly in the next few days and this problem subsided. I also noticed that I was now able to easily pucker up my lips enough that my top lip could now easily join up to my nose, and that I could make an unusual "V" shape with my top lip - Great if you're into pulling faces but not attractive!
Overall I found the procedure a good, inexpensive and quick fix for my thin smile, however the down sides to it - especially not finding it easy to drink from a cup, may actually make me think twice before having the procedure done again. I'm undecided, I guess it depends on how much I end up missing my fuller smile!
Lip reduction can be done on either the upper or lower lip, or both at the same time. That is a patient’s preference based on their aesthetic concerns.
