ADD FULLNESS TO YOUR LIPS WITH NATURAL LOOKING RESULTS THAT LAST

The mouth and lips are historically overlooked for rejuvenation. Many Plastic Surgeons intentionally avoid the mouth because it is a difficult region to refresh.

As we age, our lips atrophy making the upper lip and mouth look old. Also, the distance between the nose and the upper lip lengthens distorting facial balance.

Over time, your lips shrink. In some cases the philtrum (upper lip) flattens making the lip architecture distorted and diminutive. It may even hide your upper teeth affecting your smile.

Dr. Diamantis is uniquely qualified to rejuvenate the perioral area. Fortunately, there's a family of procedures and products proven to rejuvenate the lip and mouth.

Keep reading below to learn more about the various options available to rejuvenate your lips and mouth area.

Lip Augmentation | Lip Enhancement | Lip Lift

Luscious lips are in…  A new  innovative option for lip augmentation is stem cell injections harvested from the body's own fat. The fat is treated with a proprietorial cleansing to optimize graft survival.

Full lips are beautiful and attractive. There are a variety of treatment options available to augment ones lips. Fillers restore volume and shape to the lips. The dermal fillers like Restylane®, Juvederm®, are natural sugars that are very safe and do not require skin testing. Dr. Diamantis is a certified expert injector with several new and exciting products. The family of HA, hyaluronic acid, products such as Restylane®/Juvederm®/Volbella®/Silk®are manufactured to be easy to inject and sculpt.

The disadvantage to these fillers is they readily resorb. The average duration of Restylane® and Juvederm® is around nine months-12 months. Our Doctors at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery utilize Radiasse® and Sculptura® as an intermediate lasting lip augmenter. Radiasse is made of hydroxyapatite a coral based product. It has an advantage that it last for two years. With over two decades of experience, Dr. Diamantis has observed excellent long-term results. However, HA products require multiple injections, which may become quite costly.

A new and innovative option for lip augmentation is stem cell injections harvested, Treated fat cells with proprietary cleansing is an ideal option for lip augmentation. Fat as a stem cell is abundant and there is no risk of an allergic reaction. Fat reacts like a stem cell which becomes the ultimate permanent graft. Fat transfer is a universal graft with unlimited potential.

Finally, Dr. Diamantis developed a lift uniquely designed to rejuvenate and enhance the lips and mouth area. The new lip lift accentuates the size (volume) and shape (architecture) of your lips and mouth, resulting in an elegant natural smile. The lip lift improves the shape of your lips by enhancing the cupids bow and philtrum of the upper lip. As an added benefit, the lip lift will improve the corners of your mouth. This new technique will lift the modilus  (corners of the mouth) upward into a more socially pleasing and beautiful position. In other words, the lip lift will turn that frown upside down.The lip lift is a permanent rejuvenation of the entire mouth complex without implants or fillers. Occasionally, Dr. Diamantis will utilize lip implants to permanently augment the upper and lower lip. Lip implants are made of surgical grade silicone or gortex material available in a plethora of custom sizes and shapes. Patients appreciate the immediate and exact results of lip implants. However, there are several legitimate concerns with the introduction of an implantable device.

Dr. Diamantis adheres to a thorough and extensive screening process. Luckily, with today's medical advances, there are a variety of medical options available to you to enhance and rejuvenate the lip and mouth area. So, allow us to help select the best option for you.
