Atlanta, GA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011
Benjamin C. Stong MD of Kalos: The Atlanta Center for Facial Plastic, Reconstructive & Laser Surgery introduces a permanent, scarless, surgical lip augmentation procedure to the greater Atlanta metropolitan area. Dr. Stong was trained in the procedure by a world renowned facial plastic surgeon in Manhattan New York and now delivers the procedure to the patients in his practice. The V to Y Lip augmentation is a highly specialized surgery with no external incisions that increases the volume of the red lip, permanently enhancing the appearance and fullness of the lip. Because there are no external incisions, there is no scarring. The entire surgery is performed through the inside of the mouth, and it is safe and effective in all age groups.
The lips are one of the most sensual, seductive, and attractive features of the face. Many patients choose to undergo lip injections with nonpermanent filler material such as juvederm and restylane early on in life because they have small or thin lips in order to improve their appearance. In order to maintain this appearance, these patients must undergo repeated injections approximately every six months as the filler material is reabsorbed. Patients who choose to undergo lip augmentation with these filler material at an early age, may desire to undergo a single procedure to avoid recurring costs as well as the need for repeated procedures over their lifetime. Other surgical lip augmentation procedures may leave external scarring or require material taken during a facelift or from another area of the body in order to achieve a similar result. Younger patients are not candidates for facelifts and others may not want to leave a scar on the body in order to achieve results similar to that of the V to Y lip augmentation procedure. An additional benefit of the procedure is that there are no external incisions and as a result no scarring.
When considering the V to Y lip augmentation one must seek out a facial plastic surgeon that is trained in and familiar with the technique. As with facelift surgery and choosing a facelift surgeon, one should find a facial plastic surgeon that performs multiple types of surgical lip augmentation procedures in order to get the best expert opinion as well as achieve superior outcomes. The V to Y lip augmentation procedure is safe and ideal for all age groups, genders, and ethnicities. Foreign material such as gortex lip implants also offer permanent surgical lip augmentation, but after the procedure the lips can feel unnatural and the implants have a higher complication rates such as rejection and infection. If you have been considering surgical lip augmentation or you have been receiving injections with nonpermanent filler material and would like to consider a permanent procedure to avoid recurring costs as well as multiple procedures over one’s lifetime, the V to Y lip augmentation may be the ideal procedure for you.
