Cheiloplasty (Lip Enhancement)
Remember your mother tracing her lipstick above her lip line? As women age, their lip tissue naturally thins, which subtly contributes to an older appearance. Lip enhancement is a very popular procedure, yet can look overdone and fake without a trained eye.
Surgically, it is possible to reduce a protrusion of the upper and/or lower lip. It is also possible to add fullness to thin lips. The upper lip can be lowered for correction of a “gummy” smile. Fat micro transfer, gortex, fascia, collagen, and fillers have gained popularity as tools for lip enhancement.
Lip enhancements are often a “final touch” during a face lift or mini lift to balance the appearance. Dr. Henley is judicious in the amount used, and overall placement for a natural look.
