A moment on the lips
Lip enhancement in Charlotte is a delicate art, using a variety of different procedures to alter the most subtle and sensitive of organs on the face besides the eyes. Some of these procedures involve surgery, while others do not. Some are temporary, and some are permanent. But all require the skilled touch of an experienced Charlotte NC facial plastic surgeon.
Lip enhancement in Charlotte can be done with an injectable filler, such as hyaluronic acid products or fat. Restylane ia a hyaluronic acid filler that has a recovery time of two to three days and lasts for six to twelve months. Perlane is similar to Restylane, but has a different consistency and lasts longer. The good news about hyaluronic acid fillers is that if you don’t like the results, or if the body reacts to the filler, you don’t have to wait for the treatment to wear off — there is an enzyme that can hyaluronidase that can dissolve the filler early.
Lip enhancement in Charlotte through surgery
Lip enhancement in Charlotte can be done surgically with a dermal allograft. This means taking the cells out of donated skin tissue, leaving behind the collagen of the dermis, and then transplanting the collagen. If you get a dermal allograft, you’ll need several days to recover, but the collagen will naturally become a part of your own tissue. If the upper lip is too long, the surgeon may make an incision under the nose and tighten the lip to bring it out and create the appearance of fuller lips. This is called a lip lift, and is usually done right in the office.
