As you age the upper lip (between the nose and mouth) elongates. The philtrum (the two columns connecting the lip to the nose) smooths out. The red part of the lip turns inward and becomes thinner.
Depending on the degree of change there are various options for correction. These include both non surgical (fillers) and surgical options including using your own collagen or fat. Correction of the thinned lower lip can also be done at the same time. If the upper lip shows advanced signs of aging it can also be improved with a lip lift. With the various options, Dr. Guy always creates a very natural, youthful look, and not an artificial or "Hollywood" lip. The treatment possibilities can be discussed with Dr. Guy in consultation.
