The upper lip is an area that can show signs of aging more than any other part of your face. A natural component of aging is the gradual loss of volume and elasticity in your skin. This causes wrinkles to appear on your face, including around your mouth. However, these wrinkles are far more noticeable when they occur in the upper lip area because this is where you smile and laugh most often—and those lines tend not to be as flattering as those down by your mouth!
Droopy Upper Lip
As you age, the upper lip can become Droopy. This occurs because of gravity and loss of elasticity in the skin. A lip lift procedure is performed to correct this by lifting the lower border of your upper lip higher than it was before, so that it appears more youthful and perky. Then perhaps a consultation with Dr. Peter Driscoll would help?
The procedure is minimally invasive and can be done in-office with local anesthesia or under IV sedation if desired. Recovery time is minimal–you’ll be able to go back to work or school after just one day! The results are long lasting, so you won’t have to worry about any further maintenance procedures down the road!
Disproportionate Upper And Lower Lip Size
You may have a problem with the size and shape of your lips. A lip lift can correct this by reducing the upper lip and augmenting the lower.
If your upper lip is too full, it will look like you have an overbite or duck lips. This can make you look older than you are because it makes it appear as though there is more tissue between your nose and mouth than there actually is.
Thin Or Receding Lips
If your lips are thin or receding, lip augmentation with implants or fillers can be used to correct the problem. A lip augmentation procedure is a simple office procedure that takes about an hour. Dr. Peter Driscoll Lip fillers are injected into the upper and lower lips to add volume, creating fuller and more defined lips.
Lip lift surgery can also be combined with lip augmentation for those who want more Dramatic results from their cosmetic surgery procedures.
