The lip enhancement procedure
Lip enhancement is a facial plastic surgery procedure which can provide you fuller, plumper lips. The most commonly used method of lip enhancement is an injectable dermal filler. The most common filler contains hyaluronic acid. This is the filler preferred by Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeon, Dr. M. Sean Freeman for use during his lip enhancement procedures.
Lip augmentation surgery
If a patient desires lip augmentation surgery, Dr. Freeman prefers to use a dermal allograft. Dermal allografts have been used for many years. Dr. Freeman only uses dermal allografts procured from specialized sources within the United States. At these tissue banks, the donor skin is surgically removed and all tissue donors are rigorously screened by the tissue bank. Dr. Freeman performs lip augmentation surgery in his state-of-the-art operating at his clinic, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery in Charlotte NC. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days. The allograft dermal tissue is used to enhance the soft tissue.
A lip lift provides lip enhancement
Dr. Freeman may recommend a lip lift to achieve appropriate facial balance. Most individuals will look better if there is a 1/3 to 2/3 relationship between the length of the lower lip as compared to the upper lip. There is usually minimal bruising and swelling and Dr. Freeman removes the visible sutures within five to six days following surgery and makeup may then be applied. There are several types of lip enhancement procedures and Dr. Freeman, Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeon is skilled in all of them.
