When it comes to cosmetic surgery, one of the primary goals for many patients is to achieve a more youthful appearance. Some individuals may be looking to improve a small or single feature, while others want to address large or multiple areas of the body.
The lips are one area of the body that are often targeted for improvement. Our society has long viewed full, luscious lips as a sign of youth and beauty. Unfortunately, not all of us are born with full lips. Furthermore, the lips can thin with age.
If you’re looking to improve your lips, there are a variety of treatments you can consider that Dr. Buckingham provides for lip enhancement.
Injectables are one of the more popular options for lip enhancements. Among the various injectables available, two of the most popular options include Juvederm and Restylane. The treatment is performed in the office and takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Injectables may be repeated every six months or so in order to maintain the desired results. Also, with the injectable treatments, fine lines and wrinkles around the lips can be diminished with each treatment.
If you are seeking a more permanent solution to lip enhancement, implants may be the right choice for you. Perma Facial Implantation involves a minor surgical procedure that is performed with FDA approved implants. These implants are made of a soft silicone that produces a very natural appearance. They do not rupture, deflate or degrade, and while they are permanent they can be easily removed or replaced. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes so the results can be tailored to the individual patient’s desires, whether they’re seeking a natural look, a dramatically fuller pout, or rejuvenation of aging lips.
