Lip: Enlargement or Reduction
Lip Enlargement: Overview
Thanks to Dr. Michael W. Gray, anyone can get that sexy pouty look and fuller larger lips with a lip enhancement. For patients with large lips, Dr. Gray can reduce their size to give the lip a more elegant appearance.
Lip Enlargement: Procedure
During this procedure, Dr. Gray can inject Juvederm® or Restylane® fillers into the lips, which enhance the size for 4 to 6 months. For a permanent enhancement he can use Alloderm® or fat. Patients can expect to retain between 40 and 60 percent of the Alloderm® or fat placed. Dr. Gray will help you decide which procedure is right for you during your complimentary consultation.
Lip Enlargement: Recovery
Following a lip enhancement there will be some swelling but patients can return to normal activities right after Restylane or Juvederm injections. In most cases, patients who receive Alloderm or fat injections will return to normal activities the next morning.
Lip Reduction: Overview
At times patients have enlarged lips that they feel are not desirable or cosmetically pleasing. To enhance the look of the lips a reduction in the size of top and/or bottom may be desired. Dr. Gray can help individuals searching for this form of improvement with a lip reduction.
