Question: I’m a 47-year-old woman and I’m often mistaken for a man when I am dressed casually. I think one of the problems is my thin lips. I would like to have them made fuller but I’m hesitant to use silicone injections. Do you do a lip enhancement surgery? Or would you suggest silicon?
Answer: Many patients notice that the appearance of their lips thin as they progress in age and the desire for full lips is not uncommon. An injectable material that is non-permanent may be a good solution for your lips. This would allow you to see what your lips look like and how these match with your aesthetic goals. Other options include implants or permanent fillers which offer greater longevity. It is very important in any lip procedure to consider not only the extra fullness of the lip but also the softness and texture and feel of the lips. In summary, there are many very good options to improve the fullness of your lips and after a discussion with an experienced Toronto facial plastic surgeon you should have a very good opportunity to achieve your aesthetic goals.
