Lip Enhancement

LET YOUR FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES NOTICE THAT YOUR MOUTH LOOKS BEAUTIFUL, BUT NOT OVERDONE.

The key to a natural looking lip enhancement is to not go over-board and create a lip shape that has too much pout. From fillers to lasers, there are many ways to reshape and rejuvenate the lips.

The most popular fillers that we use in our clinic are hyaluronic acid products, a sugar molecule that you already have in your skin. Some of our products include Emervel and Juvederm, and they are excellent at enhancing or augmenting the volume of the lips. In addition, Botox injections can be used to soften the look of wrinkles around the mouth.

With lip rejuvenation, the mouth should take on a softened, more defined, fuller look, but without the extreme over-inflated shape. Friends and acquaintances should notice that your mouth looks beautiful, but not overdone. Ideally a stranger that does not know what you previously looked like should not be able to tell you had any filler performed.

Another way to achieve lip rejuvenation and to soften crinkling lines around the mouth is with the use of a laser treatment. Lasers can smooth, and in some patients nearly remove most of the lines around the mouth, giving a smoother appearance to the skin. Sun damage of the lips, such as broken vessels, red spots or pigmentation can all be improved with a laser treatment or light therapy (IPL or BBL).

Some of the best techniques for lip enhancement or rejuvenation include:

 

Fillers – to increase volume and to enhance an uneven lip shape; fillers can last up to 18 months.

 

Botox – to soften the crinkling lines around the mouth; Botox treatments can last 3-4 months.

Laser treatments – to reduce skin pigmentation, lines or sun damage around the mouth.

Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

N

the appearance of decreased volume in the lips

N

a desire to enhance the appearance of the lips, volume or symmetry

N

to soften crinkles around the mouth

N

reduce skin pigmentation, lines or sun damage

N

improve skin quality of the lips

N

enhance the lips without looking too overdone or pouty

What is the recovery time?

Botox has virtually no recovery time, but the result will not be fully appreciated for up to 2 weeks.  Fillers may cause some initial bruising or selling but this generally settles in a couple of days.  For laser the recovery is dependent on the depth of treatment required.  For deep wrinkles a more thorough treatment may be required and up to a week of flaking can occur with a few more weeks of looking a bit pink.  This can be covered with makeup.

During your private consultation, Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, go over the best options to achieve your desired results, review the pros and cons of lip enhancement, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, discuss what to expect post treatment, and your estimated recovery time.

Testimonials

Amazing plastic surgeon

Amazing plastic surgeon who was initially referred to me by another plastic surgeon. From my first consultation, Dr Shortt immediately knew what surgical procedures were the best option for my situation. No hesitation in diagnosis and recommended plan of action. I’m a breast cancer survivor and I thought a breast reconstruction was a lost cause for me due to my extension radiation treatments and consequential skin damage. Dr Shortt was very methodical and professional throughout the entire 18 month process. Before each surgery, I witnessed assertiveness and confidence with a sure hand mapping my body with his sharpie pen. He made me feel at ease with his good sense of humour and music.
My breast cancer journey is at long last over and I am quite happy with the final results. I feel rejuvenated and have gained my confidence back. I am so glad that I didn’t hesitate with my initial decision to go forward with the breast reconstruction. Thank you so much Dr. Shortt.

Nicest doctor ever

Dr. Shortt made my experience so wonderful and easy, he listened to all my concerns and was so helpful with everything. I had small implants put in to correct my tuberous breast and didn’t want too much of a visible change in size, he did exactly that and was so helpful throughout the whole process and made things very easy. I can’t thank I’m enough!

Amazing Experience with Dr. Shortt

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Shortt and his staff. I am so thankful to have had such a skilled surgeon and I am extremely happy with the results and I am glad I went through with the procedure/ chose Dr. Shortt as my surgeon. When I went for my pre-op check-up with my GP he asked who my surgeon was and when I told him it was Dr. Shortt he said that Dr. Shortt is a very good surgeon/ “one of the best.” The consultation process was excellent, I had more questions than the average patient. I asked specific questions about the procedure and the techniques that he uses for the surgery and he was more than happy to answer all my questions and let me know that I could come back for further consultations if I had more questions etc.

I highly recommend Dr. Shortt

I highly recommend Dr. Shortt. I recently had laser surgery on my face and am very pleased with the results. Dr. Shortt was patient, understanding and answered all my questions during our consultation. I later had some concerns about the surgery and Dr. Shortt listened to them and modified the procedure for me. I felt completely confident in his skill, expertise and professionalism and am very glad I went ahead with the surgery.

Thank You for Making Me Real Again!

Over the past 7 months, I have seen Dr Shortt for 2 procedures – breast implant removal, followed by breast augmentation using fat transfer (separate procedures). Dr Shortt is an amazing surgeon. His professionalism, perfectionism in his work, his bedside manner and not to mention his sense of humour are all on point. He never tries to “up sell” and truly listens. His assistant, Joanne, is excellent.
From my first consult to my post-op after care, the experience has been exceptional.

Absolutely hands down the best!

Absolutely hands down the best! Dr Shortt is very skilled surgeon and has a warm, caring personality along with a sense of humour which will keep you at ease throughout the whole process. You are in the best hands should you choose Dr. Shortt. Thank you Dr Shortt and Joanne for making my surgical journey a great experience!

It’s Been 28 Years …

I was reviewing breast transfer procedures on real self. Dr. Shorrt had comment on a previous post. I checked out his profile/website and decided to go for a consultation. I was glad that he actually conducted the consultation. I’ve been to one where the Dr.’s assistant did the initial one. He was very easy to talk , to express your concerns. He was very knowledge. Some doctors are in rush to explain things. “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression” . I felt very comfortable right away. I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon.

Feel and look better than ever before.
