- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
Some patients who visit with Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee are interested in obtaining facial surgery procedures to enhance a specific area of concern. For many women, thin lips can impact the way they feel about themselves. If you live int eh area of Huntington Station, NY and are interested in improving the volume of your lips, we welcome you to schedule a consultation visit with our team to discuss your options.
When it comes to lip augmentation procedures, there are surgical and non-surgical options available.
- Non-surgical – First and foremost, many patients will find the results they desire with the use of cosmetic injectables. Some injectable fillers can be used to improve the appearance of the lip area, as well as wrinkles and folds around the face. Certain injectable products, including Restylane, Artecoll, and Hylaform are best used in this area. The doctor will provide the injections during an outpatient appointment, and the results can last several months before reinjection is required for maintenance.
- Surgical – Another option for patients who are seeking permanent results is that of lip implants. Specialized implants are placed into the lower lip through an incision made inside of the mouth. This eliminates the appearance of scarring along the lip line. The implants are placed in the area required, and the incision is sutured and allowed to heal. This is a permanent option for patients who may have been unhappy with the results of injections, or for those who do not want to have ongoing injections done to achieve the look they desire.
