Do you believe that your lips are too thin for the rest of your face? Is your lip volume and shape contributing to a look of unhappiness, despite your being in a good mood? Did you know that there are multiple methods in modern facial plastic surgery to help the shape of your lips?
The appearance of the lips needs to be considered in conjunction with the impact of adjacent facial units – the nose and chin.
Not all of us have the genetics to have lips like some of our favourite movie stars. As we age, some of the fat overlying the lips loses thickness. In addition, the normal movements of the lips contribute to extra lines around the lips, especially in smokers.
Options that can be considered for lip enhancement include:-
Dermal filler injections, anti-wrinkle injections and laser skin resurfacing procedures are performed at Norwest Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery under local anaesthesia by Sydney Plastic Surgeon, Dr Gavin Sandercoe.
Surgical options are usually performed in conjunction with another procedure, such as a facelift or nose surgery, so pricing is not included on our website as it varies widely. It is exceedingly rare for any of these procedures to attract funding from Medicare, or therefore, your health fund.
What does Dr Sandercoe offer?
An initial consultation with Sydney Plastic Surgeon Dr Gavin Sandercoe and his team will help you to understand what your individual circumstances are, and what your options are for enhancing your lip shape.
Dr Gavin Sandercoe is a fully qualified Specialist Plastic Surgeon with training in different techniques of lip enhancement. Dr Sandercoe does not favour one particular technique – he will discuss your options and propose a technique that is matched to your needs. This will help you on the road to recovering with a great result!
