The number of facial plastic surgery procedures is increasing annually, and women are focusing more on solutions for the mouth area.

They say that the smile is the umbrella of the face. But, for many men and women, the umbrella in question may be showing signs of age. Feathering around the lips, deep marionette and nasolabial lines, wrinkles, and imperfections can make the mouth and lip area look old, even if facelifts and wrinkle treatments have turned back the hands of time on the rest of the face.

While certain changes are part of the normal aging of the mouth, that doesn’t mean nothing can be done to improve it, and take years off the face. From peels to injections, laser resurfacing to surgical liplifts, plastic surgeons have perfected techniques to reduce or eliminate those pesky signs of age.

The number of facial plastic surgery procedures is increasing annually, and women are focusing more on solutions for the mouth area. Anti aging treatments for lips and lip augmentations are on the rise. Taking advantage of these plastic surgery techniques can reduce the signs of age and achieve a younger, more vibrant appearance.

However, as with all plastic surgery, the changes and improvements to one area should harmonize with the rest of the face. Overly pouty lips or skin that’s can result in a face that looks artificial or mask-like. Equally important is to choose a plastic surgeon trained not only in aesthetic plastic surgery but in the type of procedure under consideration. For instance, some fillers may have been approved for most facial areas but not the lips.

For patients considering soft tissue dermal fillers, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery recommends a first doing a trial run, using short acting agents. This allows patients to decide if they like the effects of the treatment before choosing a longer-lasting method.

While a face lift can certainly take years away from the appearance, undergoing some mouth and lip rejuvenation strategies can make a significant difference in how someone looks and is perceived by those around her. Dermal fillers, augmentations, and laser resurfacing can improve the appearance and boost the morale.
