Many years ago, physicians used to overfill lips giving a duck-like appearance, scaring many people away from lip augmentation. Today, expert physicians like Dr. Babak Azizzadeh have developed much more advanced techniques to assure the most natural-looking result.

To help achieve a natural result, it is important to understand how the lips move when we speak, smile, eat and are at rest. It is also important to look at the teeth and lip length, as well as take the patient’s age, race and sex into consideration.

Not everyone is a candidate for very full lips without making it obvious you’ve had work done. To the same extent, no two people have the same lips, so in attempting to put another person’s lips on your face can make the results out of proportion and aesthetically displeasing.

Lastly, lips are only one part of facial rejuvenation. Dr. Azizzadeh always uses a global approach to ensure every feature of the face is in balance – which is the key to avoid looking like you’ve had work done.

During your initial consultation Dr. Azizzadeh will discuss what type of augmentation is ideal for your lips to ensure the best possible result. He always uses the ‘less is more’ philosophy, as a little bit really goes a long way with lip fillers.

Beyond understanding that subtly is the key, Dr. Azizzadeh also feels it is important to focus on the shape of the lips. This is why the combination of art and science is imperative for a successful lip augmentation.

In Caucasians, the lower lip often begins to disappear with age, and the lips and corners of the mouth start to wrinkle. And like other areas of the face, the lips lose volume overall as we get older. This lost volume can easily be replaced with dermal fillers such as Juvederm.

Still don’t want a needle in your lip? Good news, it is also possible to get a fuller pout without ever touching the lips themselves. This technique is done using the collagen stimulator Sculptra Aesthetic. Dr. Azizzadeh can place Sculptra Aesthetic just above the lips and below the lips in the chin area to attain the same results without the risk of an overblown unnatural look.

At our Beverly Hills Center for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery we have very happy patients, and it all stems from Dr. Azizzadeh’s philosophy that less is more and that natural looking results are the most important goal of any procedure.

We don’t want to make you look like someone else, but instead a more youthful and beautiful version of you!
