Improving lip definition and proportions and correcting gummy smiles reshape
Lips are one of the most emotionally expressive parts of the face and convey youthfulness, sensuality and beauty. Consequently, in patients who lack adequate lip definition and volume, or those who have asymmetrical or disproportionate lips, a lip reshaping/augmentation procedure can have a transformative effect in improving the appearance of the lips and surrounding area.
Lip enhancement and augmentation is most commonly performed using modern hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Strategic injections into the lips and surrounding areas can optimise the shape, structure and volume of the lips as well as reduce asymmetry. They can also be used to treat “smoker’s lines” and “lipstick lines”, by improving the quality of the surrounding skin and soft tissue.
