The ideal lip is more than just full. It’s a precise proportion of the upper to lower lip and needs to “fit” the area around it. Often times, as a part of the aging process, the lips succumb to atrophy just as the rest of the skin and face does. This leads to less pink lip show and a greater distance between the nose and the upper lip.
When this is the case, lip enhancement (lip augmentation) with dermal fillers simply isn’t enough. A lip lift at The Savin Center is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under safe, local anesthesia and has helped many patients achieve a dramatically younger-looking and beautiful lip area.
