Plump, youthful lips lose elasticity and fullness over time, creating sagging or thinning lips. Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., rejuvenates smiles of Nashville and Franklin, TN residents with lip augmentation.
How Lip Augmentation Works
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers plumps the lips for months at a time for a gentle, natural result. An ideal method for enhancing existing facial features in both men and women, lip augmentation use natural or synthetic fillers to increase the volume of your lips for months at a time. Lip implants and other facial surgery solutions may provide a more permanent solution.
However, if you are self-conscious about thinning lips or desire a more robust, yet natural-appearing lip profile, lip augmentation with dermal fillers may be right for you. Lip augmentation is considered by individuals with one or more of the following:
- Lips that disappear when smiling
- Naturally thin or poorly defined lips
- Thinning or sagging lips as a result of aging
- Imbalance between more prominent facial features and the lips
