Sexy Lips Or Porn Star Lips?

We all agree that lips are sexy! But, what makes lips sexy? And, the fear most of my patients express: "Doc, please do not make me look like a porn star!"

What makes lips sexy is their round, full and rolled out contour. As we get older, we all tend to lose volume from our face and the lips also get thinner. As they thin out, fine wrinkles appear around the mouth and lips look crinkled and shriveled! Most patients notice that there is a fine white line around their lips where it used to be pink or "lip color." Ladies who wear lipstick also complain that their lipstick "bleeds" and no longer stays confined to their lip border.

As the loss of volume continues, the corners of the mouth also get thinned out and the mouth appears to be drooping. Patients walk in usually saying that they have a "tiered or sad" look.

Luckily, the problem has an easy solution. There are a variety of fillers that can be injected to the lip to restore the natural "roll" to the lip, eliminating the fine lines and getting that pretty lipstick to stay on the lips as planned! The filler material is injected along the lip border as one would apply lip liner until the lip anatomy is restored. This simple trick allows for the lips to be restored to what they looked like when the person was in his / her twenties! There is no additional volume – hence no porn star lips!

The sagging corners of the mouth can also be corrected using the above method with some application of the filler material to the surrounding supporting areas of the lip (around the lower lip / chin area) to push up the corners. Botox injections can also help relax the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth down. Together, the problem is addressed!

Now, what if one does really want a little additional volume? The good news is that most fillers are instantaneous. By injecting the actual lip at various critical areas one can create more volume, more of a "pout", a wider smile (for those with tiny mouths) or any other desired effect. What you see, minus a little bit of swelling, is what you get. You can control what and how much goes into the lips and therefore avoid the ugly overdoing of fillers that creates the "porn star lips" or "fake cosmetic look" so many women fear.

In short, aging lips are correctable, the lipstick color can be confined to the lips, and the sad corners of the mouth can be transformed to the natural, healthy, youthful lips you were given earlier in life!
