People notice that with age their lips may become thinner and the upper lip may become longer. Skin wrinkles may develop around the upper and lower lips.
Various techniques are available to rejuvenate the lips. An elongated upper lip can be shortened using a small incision placed at the base of the nostrils. We prefer to restore lip fullness using Restylane® or AlloDerm (see Lip Augmentation section). Skin wrinkles can be treated using dermabrasion or laser.
During your consultation, we will discuss all these procedures with you and determine which procedures might work best for you. The choice of the procedure depends on your preference, your lip anatomy, and your overall health.
