Thin or uneven lips can be enhanced with nonsurgical methods that are minimally invasive.
Dr Bharat Patel is an expert in the most advanced non-surgical lip enhancement techniques. Naturally, thin or uneven lips may be congenital or age- related. Vertical lines can appear often below and above the lips and the corners of the mouth may begin to droop. These problems can be corrected safely and painlessly with minimal to no downtime.
At your consultation a thorough examination will be undertaken with mapping of your lip structures, followed by a detailed plan to produce results that are natural and long lasting. Your lips can be enhanced to be more fuller, eliminating vertical lines and correcting drooping corners of the mouth. Dermal volumisers normally Restylane and Juvederm are used as these are gold standard products that have been used successfully for many years and give the softest most natural results.
Lip Augmentation normally takes approximately 30 minutes to perform and may last from 6 -12 months though recent evidence shows some of the results may be retained for longer periods.
