If you are noticing signs of aging, then you may know that dermal fillers can be used to plump up those fine lines and deeper creases and add some plumpness to your lips. However, since dermal fillers have been on the market, cosmetic surgeons have found unique ways to help men and women combat other signs of aging. If you have noticed that the corners of your lips have begun to droop, making you look sad when you are not, then here are two ways fillers can be used to turn that frown upside down.
1. Dermal Fillers Can Be Injected Right Under the Corners of Your Mouth
One way cosmetic surgeons can lift those corners of your mouth is by targeting them directly with a filler. Cosmetic surgeons state that just a little filler underneath the mouth corners is all many men and women need to project the corners upward to a more youthful position. However, some people can see even more improvement with a filler/Botox combination; the Botox can be used to relax the facial muscles that may be pulling the corners downward even more. This combination can bring even the most downward-turned mouth corners upward where they belong.
2. A Liquid Face Lift Can Also Lift Those Mouth Corners
If you have more signs of aging that you want to correct that are causing your entire face to have a slightly "sad" appearance, then a liquid face lift may be an even better option for you. As the name of the procedure suggests, it can allow you to skip the scalpel of the more-invasive typical face lift procedure.
While every procedure differs slightly due to varying signs of aging, the basic steps of a liquid face lift include:
- Injecting Botox to relax fine lines on your forehead and around your mouth.
- Injection of dermal fillers in your upper cheeks to virtually "lift" your lower face, including those mouth corners.
- Additional fillers in deep wrinkles and above your brow(to lift your eyelids slightly.
- A little lip filler as a final touch to plump up that beautiful smile.
Don't worry if you think you don't need one of the above steps or have another step in mind not mentioned. Your cosmetic surgeon will take your personal desires into consideration when forming your liquid face lift plan. However, if your main concern is the slight droop the corners of your mouth have taken, the filler in your cheeks is a must-have to get the ultimate lip lift.
If the corners of your lips have begun to droop as you have aged, then it may cause you to look unhappy any time you don't have a big smile on your face. Ask your cosmetic surgeon to perform one of these tricks to lift those mouth corners and help you look like the happy person you really are once again!
