Lip enhancement has evolved considerably over the past couple of decades. You have lots of choices for restoring a more youthful appearance to your lips.

After we examine the current shape and volume of the lip tissue, we can offer the best possible solution.
We serve the entire Nashville area and are specialists in the area of lip enhancement. Most of the common procedures we employ produce dramatic results that can last for up to a year or more. Read on to learn a bit more about the manner in which we can alter the size and shape of your lips and take years off your appearance.
These are commonly used to add volume to the lips. Mature adults often experience a flattening of the lip tissue, and this results in more prominent wrinkling of the lip skin. Two types of filler gels are used. One of them contains acid particles and the other has calcium particles suspended in the gel.
Hyaluronic acid filler gels are used for lip augmentation when the lips need a bit of plumping. The acid draws in and holds moisture in place. This type of gel is injected directly into the cushioned lip tissue. The effect is nearly immediate.
The result is added volume, and because we can move the gel around with our fingers as we massage the tissue following injection, we can efficiently create a more pleasing lip shape. The lip perimeter appears more natural and with a curvy contour that looks quite youthful. A typical injection procedure takes only about 30 minutes to perform. We have complete control over the outcome because we use a specified amount of the filler gel.
Calcium hydroxylapatite filler gels work best when structural support is needed. The calcium particles bind with lip tissue, and over the next two or three months following the procedure, more and more tissue binds together. The result is firmer lips and a more even balance that really enhances the facial features. This type of dermal filler doesn’t produce immediate results, but the results you experience can last for more than a year.
Both of these types of dermal fillers can be safely injected every year or so. All that’s required are repeat injections to maintain your perfect pout.
