Beverly Hills Facial Fillers and Lip Injections by Plastic Surgeon Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy

Lip augmentation has gained immense popularity in recent years, with many people seeking to enhance their lips for a fuller, more voluminous look. While this is one of the most common reasons for getting lip injections, it is important to note that lip injections are not solely about adding volume. In fact, many individuals opt for lip injections to restore just the natural contours of the youthful lip.

As we age, our lips naturally lose volume, definition, and around the mouth begin to show the signs of aging with fine lines. This can result in a tired, frowning, and aged appearance. Lip injections can be a great solution for those looking to reverse these signs of aging and restore a more youthful look to their lips.

Benefits of Lip Injections

One of the main benefits of lip injections for restoring a youthful appearance is the ability to redefine the lip border. As we age, the border of our lips can become less defined and blurred. By injecting dermal fillers into the border of the lips, it is possible to restore a sharper and more defined outline, giving the lips a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

  • Lip Injections Can Help Smoker’s Lines

Furthermore, lip injections can help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles that may have formed around the lips. These lines, often referred to as “smoker’s lines” or “lipstick lines,” can be a telltale sign of aging. By injecting fillers into these lines, they can be plumped up and smoothed out, resulting in a more youthful lip area.

  • Lip Injections can Restore Volume

Additionally, lip injections can help to restore lost volume to the lips. As we age, the lips tend to lose their fullness and can become thin and flat. By injecting dermal fillers into the lips, it is possible to add volume and create a more plump and youthful appearance. According to the America Society of Plastic Surgeons, “Overfilled lips were a trend in the past decade, but recent years are shifting towards a more natural look.” The amount of volume desired depends on the amount of filler injected and can vary according to the patient’s specific situation and cosmetic goals. It is not uncommon for first time lip injection patients to get a conservative treatment in the beginning to see how they like their new look.

  • Redefining the Cupid’s Bow

Besides restoring lost volume to the upper and lower lips, the most important artistic approach as a lip augmentation expert is the restoration of the Cupid’s Bow. The Cupid’s Bow isn’t just the divot in between the philtral columns of the upper lip, but the middle area of the upper lip that is the heart of the youthful appearing upper lip. To artistically redefine the Cupid’s Bow, Dr. Lesavoy addresses the specific detailed areas of the upper lip that enhance the most unique area of the upper lip.

  • White Roll – Dermal filler lip injections are far more than increasing volume by injecting filler into the general lip body, but injection into more defined areas of the lips to create the most natural lip rejuvenation. One of these areas is the White Roll. This is the area that outlines the lips. Dr. Lesavoy’s artistic approach is to gently inject a small and smooth amount of filler into the while roll to enhance, define and create a more natural appearing lip augmentation result.
  • Philtral Columns – Perhaps one of the most artistic approaches to lip augmentation is the gentle rejuvenation of the philtral columns. The philtral columns connect from your nose down to each peak of your upper lip and help define the Cupid’s Bow. As we age, these raised vertical edges lose volume just like any other area of the face. Dr. Lesavoy’s artistic lip injection approach is to carefully inject just enough dermal filler into the philtral columns to restore a more youthful lip appearance and help redefine the shape of the lip and the Cupid’s Bow.
  • Vermilion Definition – The vermilion border is that obvious line that defines the difference between the mucous lip skin and the skin of the face. This is the natural lip line area that is the most utilized area to apply lip liner. However, many patients desire to avoid the need to apply lip liner outside of this demarcation line that would give the appearance of more defined lips. By artistically injecting dermal filler into this area, Dr. Lesavoy is able to help improve the vermilion definition that also can improve the application of lip liner.

It is important to note that achieving natural-looking results is key when it comes to lip injections. Dr. Lesavoy’s vast experience has proven him to be one of the most skilled and experienced plastic surgeons who understands the importance of maintaining proportions and balance. Overfilling the lips can result in an unnatural and exaggerated look, which is not the goal when seeking to restore a youthful appearance.

While lip injections are often associated with adding volume, they can also be used to restore a more youthful appearance to the lips. From redefining the lip border to smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, lip injections offer a range of benefits for those looking to rejuvenate their lips. Dermal filler expert injector and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy can provide natural-looking results and ensure that the overall balance of the face.
