If you have naturally thin lips or have noticed that your lips continue to thin as you age you may wonder if there’s anything you can do. At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we’re happy to provide those with thin lips multiple options for rejuvenating their lips for a plumper, fuller appearance. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Malik Kutty understands that your lips play a part in the overall aesthetic of your face and is here to help you achieve the results you desire.
Plump, luscious lips are not just for movie stars and models; you too can achieve the sultry lips of your dreams at Luxe Plastic Surgery. At our office, we offer our patients two options for lip augmentation, including:
- Dermal fillers
- Lip implants
In the paragraphs below, we’ll highlight a little about each procedure so that you can determine the best treatment for your cosmetic goals. However, we recommend discussing all of your options with Dr. Kutty in an initial consultation before making your final decision. Dr. Kutty will help you understand the differences between each procedure and use his expertise to determine the best option for your desired outcome.
The most common technique for augmenting lips has been the use of dermal fillers. The dermal fillers Dr. Kutty uses are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body and when injected into the lips can add volume and shape. Using dermal fillers has shown to produce beautiful results and provide many other benefits, including:
- The ability to control the size and shape of the lips
- Produces less bruising than other options
- Long-lasting but temporary results
- Likelihood of allergic reactions is minimal
- Performed in office
- Little to no downtime
The two dermal fillers we offer for lip augmentation at our office include:
- Juvéderm®: This filler has shown to produce natural-looking, beautiful, plump results that can last up to one year.
- BELOTERO BALANCE®: Because of its high degree of cohesiveness and elasticity this filler has shown to produce beautifully smooth results that can last up to one year.
While dermal fillers may be the most common form of augmentation for the lips, they’re a finite solution that requires touch-ups to sustain results. At our office, Dr. Kutty also offers lip implants for those who are looking for a permanent solution to their thin lips. Using a new implant called the PermaSil implant, Dr. Kutty can create a soft and contoured appearance with a size that is customized to your aesthetic goals.
The benefits of lip implants beyond being permanent include:
- Natural-looking results
- Feel soft when touched
- Do not affect the lips’ movements or functions
Dr. Kutty will help you determine the best option during your consultation. He’ll also go over your current health status and medical history to make sure that you’re in a good position to have lip augmentation treatment. At our office, our goal is to not only provide each patient with beautiful results but to provide those results in the safest, most effective ways possible.
