Drs. Lieberman and Parikh are known for a lot of things – giving natural-looking facelifts, for one. They’re also known for excellent bedside manner – but giving lip service usually isn’t one of them.
Recently, patients from across the Bay Area have been flocking to For The Face for lip augmentation because the doctors and nurse injector, Moira Ljungquist, offer excellent results through a variety of modalities.
As we get older, our lips shrink and often wrinkles form around the edges making lipstick bleed. Nobody wants that. And despite the popularity of #KylieJennerChallenge on social media, most people don’t want her over-stuffed lips either.
According to a 2015 survey by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the most coveted lips belong to Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Garner (in that order), all beautiful actresses with very natural appearances. And it’s not just women seeking lip augmentations. About 1,200 male lip procedures were performed in 2015, representing a 400% increase from 2000.
Should you decide to go for more pouty lips, here are some areas to consider:
- Lower lip
- Upper lip
- Cupid’s bow
- Corners of the mouth
Drs. Lieberman and Parikh have spent their entire careers studying the face and will be able to give you suggestions based on your facial features and skin.
Generally, dermal fillers like JUVEDERM® and Restylane will be used because they preserve the natural appearance of the lips while enhancing the size and shape.
After an injection, some brief massaging of the area may be necessary to achieve a smooth result, and at first, your lips may feel fuller than expected. Within 24 hours, the swelling will subside and you will be able to enjoy the results.
Another option for lip augmentation is having fat transferred from one area of your body to your lips which is a good option for anyone who has had negative reactions to fillers in the past and / or want longer-lasting results.
There are several other options for lip augmentation, and when you come to Lieberman & Parikh Facial Plastic Surgery you can feel confident that your lip service will be highly personalized and deliver subtle, beautiful results.
