Dr. Katz offers lip augmentation in Dallas, either with a cosmetic surgery procedure that enhances the size and shape of your lips, or a non-surgical option for patients desiring a fuller, more shapely mouth. Different options are offered by Dr. Katz to create fuller lips. These include both non-surgical options like Silikon lip injections or surgical options like lip lifts and lip implants.
To achieve permanent, natural results, micro-droplets of medical grade silicone is injected into the lips at 4 week intervals. Silicone injection results are progressive, and most patients need approximately 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired result. Patients wanting an immediate result can have fat injected into the lips. 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 what approach is best for your situation.
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 are placed either underneath the nostrils or 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.
