What Are Lip Injections?
The lips and the surrounding areas are defining features of the face. For many patients, lips that have improved definition and fullness can provide a significant rejuvenation and restore balance to the entire lower face.
Over time, normal bony and soft tissue changes cause the facial profile to become flatter as the nose gains more prominence and the lower part of the face becomes shorter. This leads to some sagging of the corners of the mouth that can create the appearance of marionette lines over time. The upper lip will tend to flatten and become longer, causing less of your teeth to show when you smile. Additionally, the lips themselves will become thinner over the course of time. For some patients, this loss of volume can cause the upper lip to completely disappear when smiling.
