The Fuller Lips You Have Always Wanted Are Only One Simple Injection Away!
The face is truly a work of natural art that shows its beauty through balance, harmony, and shapely proportionality. The mouth is no exception, and having full and voluminous lips is a desire that transcends age. Young or mature, the fact is that we all want a full set of beautiful, attractive, and kissable lips, because in our society, full lips are indicative of youth and beauty. Whether you have always had thin lips or have naturally lost lip volume over time, you may be considering the idea of adding some fullness to the area. A lip augmentation procedure can improve the overall appearance of your lips and give you the full, luscious lips you desire!*
Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin understand that your lips are a defining characteristic in your overall facial appearance. Together with their highly trained staff at Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center, conveniently located in Richmond, VA and Vienna, Virginia, these Board Certified (ABPS) cosmetic surgeons pride themselves on employing advanced lip-enhancing techniques in order to provide you with the results you want while still keeping a naturally beautiful look. Desirable lip size is a highly personal decision and we will customize a plan for you based on your taste and likes.
Advantages of Lip Augmentation
Let’s face it, in today’s society, full lips are an attractive and desirable feature. Moreover, adding volume to your lips can create beautiful facial harmony and help balance the appearance of your other facial structures. If you are not happy with the size or shape of your lips or if your well-defined lips have lost volume and become thin and wrinkled due to the natural aging process, a lip augmentation procedure offers a simple solution that is fast, effective, and requires no downtime. In addition to enhancing your aesthetic appearance, lip augmentation also serves as an anti-aging procedure. Fine lines, also known as smoker’s lines, can form on the top of the lip as we age. Adding volume to the upper lip can help smooth these lines away and also helps form a border on your lips’ edge to prevent your lipstick from bleeding.*
The Lip Augmentation Experience
Today’s advanced lip augmentation involves the use of powerful, safe, and highly effective injectable fillers or even your body’s own natural fat! We will work closely with you in order to understand your concerns and aesthetic goals, and will recommend the approach that we believe is best suited for your unique anatomy and will achieve exactly the look that you want. Some of the lip augmentation options available at MBody are:
- Juvéderm®: With results lasting up to 12 months, Juvéderm® offers powerful volumizing in one simple injection. Ideal for adding volume and shape to your lips and mouth area, your Juvéderm® injection can be precisely planned for either subtle alterations or a more voluptuous appearance, depending on your specific aesthetic goals.
- Restylane®: Restylane® is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps the tissues of your skin retain water and stay hydrated. It will help maintain lip fullness for up to 6 months and is ideal for patients who are trying lip augmentation for the first time.
- Autologous Fat Transfer: This amazing process actually utilizes fatty tissue harvested from your own body! After being processed and sterilized, the fatty tissue is re-injected into the lips for greater fullness and definition. Because the tissues are from your own body, this technique offers long lasting alteration as the fat grafts onto the existing structures of the lips.
We understand that your lips are a sensitive and very visible area on your face. Both Juvederm and Restylane contain lidocaine to help with discomfort, but a topical numbing agent or dental block can also be used to make the procedure more comfortable. Our patients’ safety, comfort, and natural beauty is always our top priority!
