Thin Not In When Talking About Lips
NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Aging lips or genetically thin lips are getting a makeover right in the kisser with the latest lift in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Oleh Slupchynskj, an expert facial surgeon practicing in New York and New Jersey, has perfected a lip lift that provides the fuller lips associated with a youthful face. The procedure is simple, provides natural and permanent results, and requires less than an hour and little recovery time.
Whether the lips are atrophic or just naturally thin, Dr. Slupchynskj makes a lateral incision on the inside of the mouth just above where the vermillion, the pink lip, continues to the interior. He advances this hidden part of the lip forward, adding it to the visible vermillion seen on the face. Vertical height can be added to both upper and bottom lips.
For aging lips, the procedure can restore the lips to the size they used to be. For women (or men) born with thin lips, the surgery provides added dimension very naturally. The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and lasts about 45 minutes. http://www.sluplift.com/lip-enhancement-surgery.htm
Many surgeons and dermatologists rely on fillers to satisfy patient demand for youthful lips, according to Dr. Slupchynskj. But the results are too often disappointing; some celebrity cases have been mocked on the Internet. “Fillers add excessive volume to atrophic lips rather than recreate the true proportions of the lip.” In the hands of less skilled technicians, injections can cause lumps. “Fillers are not a natural remedy for genetically thin lips,” adds Dr. Slupchynskj. “Fillers can’t recreate what you never had – the pink vermillion.”
Ever since Angelina Jolie entered the big screen, lips have been the “it” feature. Women have been on a quest for lip enhancement, but now they want a natural look and permanency. Lip lifts are on the rise. Few doctors specialize in the procedure, but according to Dr. Slupchynskj, the surgery is markedly more patient friendly from every perspective. “Injectables are really popular and appropriate elsewhere on the face, but for many requests for younger-looking lips, this is where the knife wins versus the needle,” he says.
