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.

Friends and acquaintances should notice that your mouth looks beautiful, but not overdone.

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

Huge Breasts Be Gone!

Absolutely hands down the best! Dr Shortt is very skilled and has a warm, caring personality along with a sense of humour:) You are in the best hands should you choose Dr. Shortt. Thank you Dr Shortt and Joanne for making this a great experience!

He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations.

Dr. Shortt performed breast reduction/tummy tuck surgery and I am very happy with the results. He is a masterful surgeon and he has exceeded my expectations. I’m a 64 yr. old woman who has lived with shoulder and back pain for years. I decided to have a breast reduction in the hope of easing this discomfort and improving my quality of life in retirement. I was able to discuss questions and concerns easily with Dr. Shortt. He has a quiet, kind manner , complemented by a good sense of humour. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Shortt to my family and friends. The office staff are also very professional, friendly and helpful.

Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind.

Dr Shortt was has been incredible! I went to him in search of options for correctly my breast asymmetry. I read a lot of reviews for plastic surgeons in and around Toronto and I chose Dr Shortt because his reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Initially, I was interested in fat grafting because I feared an implant would be obvious. At my consultation, Dr Shortt explained the advantages and disadvantages of both options. His opinion was that an implant would actually be the better choice because breast augmentation with an implant is much more predictable and due to the difference in my breasts, I would probably need multiple sessions of fat grafting, which would get quite expensive. After the consultation, I understood why an implant would be the better choice for me and my body. He wrote a letter on my behalf advocating that my surgery be covered by OHIP, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, and they agreed to cover it! I really appreciated that Dr Shortt was honest about what he thought would make me the most happy (an implant in one side), not what would make him the most money (multiple sessions of fat grafting). Throughout the whole process, he was patient, understanding, and confident. His sense of humour put me at ease on surgery day and I couldn’t be happier with the results of my surgery. I didn’t want bigger breasts, just more symmetrical ones and he managed to balance me out beautifully without even touching my bigger left breast. My surgery was three weeks ago and except for the scar (which is healing beautifully) you can’t even tell I had surgery. My new breast looks and feels great and I can’t stop buying pretty new bras now that any bra will work for me. I can’t wait for bikini season! Dr Shortt is talented, trustworthy, and kind. As soon as you meet him, you’ll see that he truly cares about your happiness. Thank you, Dr Shortt!
