What is a lip enhancement?
Lip enhancement, also known as lip augmentation, is an aesthetic cosmetic procedure that aims to enhance the shape and volume of the lips. The objective of this procedure, is to enhance the look of the lips through injectable dermal fillers, to obtain firmer and plumper lips.
There are a variety of reasons why one may consider a lip enhancement procedure. One of the most common reasons is to add more volume to the lips to achieve more youthful and fuller lips.
You may also want your natural lips to be more visible, which can be achieved with neuromodulators, a technique referred to as lip-flip.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for a Lip Enhancement Procedure?
You may be an ideal candidate for a lip enhancement if you:
- Are feeling self-conscious about your lips
- Have thin lips that disappear when you smile
- Have thinner lips as a result of aging
- Want fuller lips
What Does a Lip Enhancement Procedure Consist Of?
There are two options for a lip enhancement procedure. The first one consists of lip augmentation, with the use of dermal fillers. Lip augmentation with dermal fillers, helps individuals get fuller lips that last for months. There are various described techniques for lip augmentation or lip enhancement, such as the Russian Lip technique. A consultation with Dr. Azzi in Montreal will help you determine if the Russian Lip technique or other lip augmentation technique are right for you.
Neuromodulators can also be used to weaken the muscle around your lips and flip your natural lips outwards. The lip-flip technique brings out the red part of your lips and gives the appearance of fuller lips. The lip-flip technique can also be combined with dermal fillers.
The choice for the specific technique adopted, will primarily depend on your unique goals and your anatomy. Following a consultation with Dr. Azzi, the most appropriate procedure will be determined, based on your needs.
