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.

Reviews

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results

I recently received breast augmentation and am extremely happy with the results! Dr. Shortt and his staff are wonderful and very talented. I definitely recommend this surgeon to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor

Dr. Shortt is a very talented and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns, and he lets you know what’s possible and what isn’t – he will never do something that will make you look fake or “done.” Dr. Shortt likes to say that he will make you into a better version of yourself, not someone else. He goes above and beyond to achieve your goals and truly cares about his patients.

I had a septorhinoplasty done to correct my breathing and the appearance of my nose. I have always been insecure about the size and shape of my nose – I had a bit of a bulbous tip and a prominent dorsal hump. I am so thrilled with the results of my surgery! In addition to breathing better, I am also feeling a lot more confident. I used to freak out if anyone took a photo of me from the side, but now I actually encourage it!

The support staff at Briarwood are wonderful, too. They make the experience comfortable and easy.

I am extremely happy that I finally took this step

I just want to say Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job on my tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). I am very pleased! The care I received prior to, during, and after my surgery has been great. Dr. Shortt and the stuff at Briarwood cosmetic surgical centre have been very thorough and detail oriented when tending to my needs, concerns and questions. I am extremely happy that I finally took this step and LOVE my results. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and am glad I chose Dr. Shortt for my surgery.

Dr Shortt did an awesome job

I recently had a breast reduction and am so happy with the final result – Dr Shortt did an awesome job!

Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result

I recently had a scar revision surgery to repair scars from a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Roger Shortt is a Genius, I am so happy with the result it is more than I could have hoped for. I am so grateful to Dr Shortt for his empathy kindness and professionalism. His staff reflected that image and were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Even though I had a bilateral I feel very happy when I see myself in the mirror. That says everything.

Best Choice I Made!

The stretch marks, loose skin and a deformed belly button from my twin pregnancy really affected my self confidence. Dr. Shortt helped me get that “old me” feeling back! He is patient, professional and truly cares for you during the recovery process. I always felt that Dr. Shortt and his team were there when I needed questions answered. Before I went for my surgery, I had no idea how important the weeks and months after would be. Now, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Dr. Shortt to be my doctor. He also makes sure that you know what to expect and that made the journey so much easier for me. Best choice I made! I finally feel like myself again.

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt

Extremely pleased to share my recent experience with Dr. Shortt and his professional staff. The entire experience was more than I had hoped it would be.
