People often forget the lips but the lips are one of the most alluring features on a person’s face. The shape and plumpness of our lips are dictated by age and genetics. Thinned lips regardless of age can be enhanced with little to no downtime to produce more defined, younger, fuller lips. Different fillers can be used; the most common are the hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Restylane Silk, Juvederm, and Belotero Balance. Before the procedure a topical numbing cream is usually applied. Very fine needles are used to inject the substance into the lips. Following the procedure ice can be used to ease comfort and decrease swelling. Before performing lip lift or lip augmentation in New York, Dr. Hayag evaluates a patient’s lips she takes in to account different criteria which include the patient’s age, ethnicity, facial features, and a patient’s desires. The goal is to always produce “natural-looking” lips that are appropriate for each individual. This requires a keen eye and good technique.
