"Many patients are familiar with lip augmentation and lip injections, but a lip lift is very different.," Dr. Benjamin Stong
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Stong, is the only surgeon in Atlanta to offer an innovative procedure that improves a patient’s appearance and self-esteem: Oral Commissure Rejuvenation, or “Lip Lift,” the corner mouth lift.
“Many patients are familiar with lip augmentation and lip injections, but a lip lift is very different,” said Dr. Stong. “Youthful, attractive lips are full and voluptuous with upturned corners of the mouth. As we age, skin and soft tissues of the face lose elasticity, and cause the upper portion of the lip to elongate. Additionally, the lip turns inward, thins, and causes the corners of the mouth to turn downward. Oral Commissure Rejuvenation, or the corner mouth lift, offers a solution to age-related changes of the lips.”
Historically for this condition, patients would be offered treatment with facial injectable fillers, which last 6-9 months (and sometimes slightly longer depending on the product). While facial fillers could provide a temporary fix, the corner mouth lift provides a more effective solution for long lasting results. This surgery can be done in the office, under local anesthesia, in less than one hour.
Dr. Stong uses a sophisticated surgical method that yields only minimal recovery and downtime with an instantaneous result.
