Dr. Katz offers lip augmentation in Dallas for patients desiring a fuller, more shapely mouth. Both cosmetic surgery and non-surgical options are available for lip enhancement. Dr. Katz can change the size and shape of your lips with either surgical lip lifts and lip implants or with non-surgical options using fillers, like Silikon lip injections.
Silikon Lip Injections are one option to achieve permanent, naturally fuller lips. Micro-droplets of medical grade silicone are injected into the lips at 4 week intervals. Silicone injection results are permanent, however, most patients need 2-3 treatments over a few months to achieve the desired result. Some patients, wanting an immediate result, may opt to have fat injected into the lips. Or, another non-surgical, but temporary, lip boost involves using injectable fillers to create fullness in the lip area. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Katz will help you decide which option best suits your individual situation.
Lip Lift surgery corrects 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 upon the specifics of the surgery, minor incisions are placed either underneath the nostrils, above the upper lip line, or at the corners of the mouth. Lip implants may also be inserted in conjunction with a lip lift 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.
