Lip augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure as it can dramatically enhance facial beauty with minimal swelling, bruising or “down-time.” Most commonly this procedure is performed on younger patients who have naturally thin lips and are looking to add volume. Lip augmentation can also be used to reduce vertical lip lines and enhance aging, thinning lips. Dr. Robert Morin, a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the head and face, is pleased to offer this procedure at both his New York City and New Jersey offices. As a surgeon with extensive training in craniofacial surgery and facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Morin maintains his patient’s safety, as well as their cosmetic goals, as a top priority.
As we age, our lips may thin or we may experience vertical lip lines due to the fact that over time both our skin and lips loose elasticity and volume. Added factors that may contribute to these cosmetic issues are genetics, smoking and sun exposure. No matter what of the reason, lip augmentation can be an excellent answer to attaining fuller, but still natural appearing lips.
