the attractive face, the science of beauty, understood at last

A Full, Sensual Mouth

There's a reason women covet Angelina Jolie's pout: Studies show that full lips are associated with beauty and youth. But we've all seen women with over-injected, artificial looking "duck lips," – a failed attempt at attractiveness. Lip enhancement in San Francisco with Dr. Mabrie is not a guessing game; it's a balance of science and artistry, research and experience.

The Lips
& The Attractive Face

Proportion, Height, and Volume

In general, studies show that the proportions of the attractive mouth are 1/3 upper lip and 2/3 lower lip. Additionally, a recent Danish study indicates that upper lip height is one of the features that most influences a woman's perceived age. Dr. Mabrie specializes in natural looking lip augmentation with filler injections in San Francisco. He uses fillers such as Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® to create a balanced, youthful and natural look.

Case 400

ABOUT OUR PATIENT Most of us have something we'd like to change about our faces. This patient has several. She wasn't too happy with her nose, her right eyebrow was lower than her left, and she said she looked tired all the time.

Case 372

ABOUT THIS PATIENT Here's another familiar face for you: Susan, my practice manager! For years and years (and years), you've seen her by my side, running our business, calling the shots and helping folks like you - sometimes even telling me what to do!

Case 217

ABOUT OUR PATIENT "How can I get fuller lips?" As you can probably guess, I hear that question a lot. The answer is different each time, since each patient I help has a unique facial structure.

We discussed the many benefits and options for Lip Augm...

Background: This woman, from Modesto, was now in her 50's and wanted to rejuvenate her looks.

Case 399

ABOUT OUR PATIENT A lot of patients visit my office in search of a way to stop looking tired all the time. For most cases, this effect is usually a sign of volume loss occurring around the eyes and tear trough region. But this time, it was caused by another telltale sign of aging in a different part of the face that's just as noticeable - jowling. DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN Fortunately, much l...

Case 236

ABOUT OUR PATIENT   This young professional woman had just moved to Northern California with her daughter when she found me online.

Case 403

ABOUT OUR PATIENT One of the most important procedures I perform at my practice is correcting the effects of previous dermal filler treatments that leave patients with less than ideal results. This patient had dermal filler placed too superficially under her eyes by a different injector, which was causing a Tyndall Effect (blueish tint). DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN While examining the effects o...

Case 401

ABOUT OUR PATIENT As soon as this soon-to-be Full Face patient stepped into my San Francisco office, I noticed the inherent elegance of her face.

MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN This patient's primary issue was a facial sagging that distracted from her striking features. I i...

Smooth Skin Around the Mouth

The size and shape of the lips are only part of the picture. Lines, folds and wrinkles around the mouth can detract from the youthful look that we know is attractive. Dermal fillers such as RADIESSE® or Restylane® Lyft can help soften these signs of aging, and showcase a more youthful mouth and lower face. Dr. Mabrie uses a new tool called a microcannula to treat wrinkles around the mouth. The microcannula is placed just under the skin and using a fanning technique similar to liposuction, Dr. Mabrie can iron fine lines and wrinkles that were difficult to treat with traditional injection methods.
