Natural Lip Wrinkle Fix: Fat Grafting

June 26th, 2013

Lip wrinkles or sometimes referred to as “smokers lines,” are the lines that radiate out from the lip margin.  They can be the result of aging, sun exposure, smoking, and /or genetics.  They usually make a person look older.  Women generally dislike them because their lipstick runs into the wrinkles, giving a pronounced pursed look. Interestingly, when lip lines become more apparent, it is often combined with a loss of lip volume or fullness at the same time.  These changes contribute to the appearance of facial aging.

Fortunately there are new choices to reduce lip lines, besides the injectable artificial fillers. Advances in regenerative medicine has ushered in revolutionary changes in many anti-aging procedures. Is regenerative fat transfer the Fountain of Youth? Perhaps, because regenerative medicine offers stunning new advances in natural procedures for facial rejuvenation, including restoration of youthful lips. Nipntuck Naturalâ„¢ features this new fat graft injection technique, which now allows us to replace facial fat loss.  Simply stated, starting with liposuction, we gently remove your own fat cells from selected areas and then they are carefully transferred to another location.  The regenerative properties of these fat cells are particularly effective, because the fat cells become a natural living part of the tissues wherever it is placed. Not only can the lines be corrected, but the lips can be restored to more youthful size and shape, as well.

This revolutionary technique is not limited to facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting is an outpatient, clinic-based procedure and the quick recovery time is changing many aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery today. It is an ideal solution for patients preferring  more natural choices for the newest options in cosmetic surgery and represents an exciting time in the field of medicine.

It is important to seek qualified professional advice when considering these procedures. Most cosmetic surgeons do not charge for patient consultations. Here is a link to find a board certified plastic surgeon near you,  The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Fixing Pesky Lip Winkles

May 23rd, 2012

Lip wrinkles or sometimes referred to as “smokers lines,” are the lines that radiate out from the lip margin.   They can be the result of aging, sun exposure, smoking, and /or genetics.   They often may make a person look older.   Women generally dislike them because their lipstick runs into the wrinkles, giving a pronounced pursed look.  Skin resurfacing may reduce these wrinkles, but this procedure frequently carries a possible downside. Invariably there is bleaching of the skin, which more often than not requires make-up to conceal.

Fortunately there are other choices to reduce lip lines.   Injectable materials have made a dramatic contribution in the area of treating these wrinkles.  Filler materials are currently the first line of defense.   Products like Restylane, Juvederm, and Perlane are a few of the ever-increasing number of dermal filler type materials on the market today.   They are injected under the skin and actually fill in the lines.   These newer products are based on a  hyaluronic acid  formulation, a natural component of your normal skin.   Interestingly, when lip lines become apparent, there is frequently a loss of lip size or fullness at the same time.   Not only can the lines be corrected, but the lips can be restored to more youthful size and shape, as well.

It is important to seek qualified professional advice when considering these procedures.  Most cosmetic surgeons do not charge for patient consultations.  Here are some links for locations near you.  The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)  and Dermatology  Clinic Directory.
