There is no question as to the popularity of a full pout. Yet, as the trend for larger lips continues to increase in popularity, we see more and more cases of men and women who have gone overboard when it comes to the size of their lips. It makes sense, then, that an overly filled and obviously fake pucker is one of the biggest concerns amongst patients considering lip augmentation.
When performed correctly by an experienced injector, like New York City’s own board certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Karlinsky, lip augmentation can achieve beautiful results. Here, New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts®’ Dr. Karlinsky lets you in on her secrets for naturally luscious lips.
Go Slow & Build Volume Over Time
“Conservative methods are always best when it comes to lip augmentation,” explains Dr. Karlinsky—who likes to start her patients off with a small, modest of amount of filler. After giving the filler time to settle, you can “decide if you want more fullness.” Dr. Karlinsky explains that with dermal fillers, you are always able to “add more at a later time if you want a more pronounced effect.”
Opt for a Natural Feeling Filler
Fillers such as Juvéderm® and Restylane® are soft and pliable because they are made up of hyaluronic acid. Found naturally in our skin and lips, hyaluronic acid attracts water and keeps the lips moisturized as well as plump and firm. When injected, dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid create a pillow-like fullness that is natural not only to the eye, but also to the touch.
Shape as well as Volume
Natural lip enhancement involves more than just the addition of volume to the lips. Dr. Karlinsky reminds her New York City patients, “The idea behind this procedure is to give you fuller lips without making you look bizarre and overstuffed.” Thus, it is important to create a lip shape that is symmetrical as well as balanced and proportionate.
Choose an Experienced Injector
Lip enhancement, like any cosmetic procedure, requires an experienced and trained hand. “First and foremost, find a doctor who is well experienced in the use of dermal fillers,” advises Dr. Karlinsky. Creating a natural lip requires a keen knowledge of facial anatomy and aesthetics as well an understanding of the appropriate amount of filler to inject in the lips.
