The Lip Aging Process

The Lip Aging Process

Lip Augmentation

Lip Filling versus Softening

  • Making lips larger usually requires a firm filler that resists compression. These are generally injected deeper.
  • Softening lip fine lines requires a thin and flexible filler. These are generally injected superficially.
  • Most patients want a combination of filling AND softening.

Dr. Rosenberger's Recommendations

  • Obtain expert consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals
  • Topical Cosmeceuticals with hyaluronic acid
  • Temporary hyaluronic acid based filler is initial BEST CHOICE
  • If significant fine lines are present, perioral resurfacing and a skin tightening regimen improves results versus single therapy
  • Neuromodulators (Botox) to soften lip lines

Lip Reduction

Lip Aging and Lip Reduction

  • Lengthening of the white lip occurs with aging
  • Augmentation with filler increases the red lip volume
  • Lip reduction decreases the vertical height of the white lip

Who is a Lip Reduction candidate?

  • Patients with very long upper white lip to red lip ratio
  • Patients with fine lip lines (age > 40) hide vermilion scars well
  • Patients with naturally disproportionate lip sizes of any age
