For those who desire full, shapely lips, Dr. Katz offers lip augmentation in Dallas, a cosmetic surgery procedure that enhances the size and shape of your lips. There are three different approaches to create fuller lips, including silicone lip injections, lip lifts and lip No link implants.
To achieve permanent, natural results, micro-droplets of medical grade silicone is injected into the lips at 4 week intervals. The results are progressive, and most patients need approximately 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired result. If patients want an immediate result, fat can be injected into the lips. For a non-surgical, temporary boost, injectable fillers can be used.
Lip Lift surgery is a procedure used to correct the appearance of the lips by reshaping them. This technique can correct lip asymmetry, reduce the space between the upper lip and the nose, and create a fuller, more youthful upper lip contour. Depending on the specifics of the surgery, minor incisions can either be placed underneath the nostrils, above the upper lip line, or at the corner of the mouth. Lip implants may also be inserted in conjunction with the procedure. Surgery generally takes one hour and is performed on an out-patient basis with IV Sedation. Sutures are removed in 5-7 days with full makeup being applied in one week.
This surgical procedure involves inserting saline or silicone implants into the upper or lower lips through small incisions directly in the lips. Surgery typically takes 30 minutes and is performed on an out-patient basis with IV Sedation. Patients can be back to work in three to five days.
