Lip fillers have become very popular. Typically a hyaluronic acid filler is used to enhance the shape and size of the lips. Lips are beautiful and defining and enhancing their shape naturally can make a big difference. Very fashionable in the 20’s and 30’s it is also a great treatment for the slightly older since the lips thin and droop with age.
For a more permanent effect fat grafting can be performed.
As we age the upper lip and base of the nose loose volume and sag downwards, the lip and skin lengthen. This changes our smile and shows more of our lower teeth rather than the more attractive upper teeth. Under local anaesthetic the upper lip can be lifted to improve facial aesthetics around the nose, mouth, and during smiling.
Following injury or disease such as skin cancers or facial nerve injury Mr Lee performs full or partial lip reconstructions, sometimes requiring a general anaesthetic but a lot can be done under local anaesthetic.
