Lip augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, and when done appropriately, can beautifully enhance your overall facial aesthetic. Plump and well hydrated lips can project confidence at any age, but lip augmentation can also be an unwanted hallmark of bad plastic surgery when done carelessly or if it is out of balance with the rest of the face and age of the patient.
For this reason, Dr. Robert DeFatta performs all lip injections personally to ensure that all aesthetic considerations are met. He will take into account your age, ethnicity and gender as well as his knowledge of normal and natural facial proportions to make a recommendation as to whether your desired lip look is achievable. The goal of lip augmentation is to achieve enhanced, yet soft and flexible lips that can also function normally and naturally during talking, eating and kissing. He is a firm believer in appropriately educating his patients and helping them avoid the stigmatized over-filled lips that feel and look unnatural. His preferred method of augmentation is injection with these dermal fillers.
Dr. DeFatta and his team understand that researching lip injection treatment options can be overwhelming. That is why we recommend an in-person consultation to let us help you decide which options are best for you.
Why Choose a Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon for Your Lip Augmentation Treatment?
With so many different types of aesthetic providers in practice today, it is important to make an informed decision when considering a procedure on your face. Physicians and surgeons who are cosmetic experts specifically in the areas of the face and neck are called facial plastic surgeons. This highly sought-after specialty requires 13 years of higher education and rigorous training to achieve the ultimate expertise in the complex anatomy, function and aesthetic of the face and neck. A weekend course, or even months of on-the-job experience, is not a replacement for expert and critical knowledge of facial form and function.
Facial plastic surgeons are trained in and routinely perform both non-invasive and surgical procedures for facial rejuvenation. They are board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS). For more than 30 years, the ABFPRS has been actively dedicated to improving the quality of facial plastic procedures available to the public by measuring the qualifications of candidate surgeons against certain rigorous standards.
Dr. Robert J. DeFatta is dual board certified, both by the ABFPRS and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. His extensive training, credentials and experience reflect his commitment to meeting the highest standards of clinical care for his patients. He has dedicated his entire career to treatment of disorders and cosmetic concerns of the face, head and neck, and his scope of practice includes injectable treatments of a variety of cosmetic concerns from the neck up.
When you choose a facial plastic surgeon, you don’t pay more, you just get more.
In some cases, lip augmentation alone may not be enough to achieve the look you desire for the lower half of your face. This dynamic area carries a very delicate balance, and many factors are taken into consideration in rejuvenation procedures.
