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 description is on the way!

Case 406

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This patient first concluded with Dr. Mabrie for help with under eye bag correction. She felt that her under eye bags made her appear tired and aged. While she did have prominent volume loss, Dr. Mabrie felt that she could benefit from a non-surgical approach. There was significant improvement in her appearance at her 2-week follow-up, she was eager to non-surgically rejuvenate ...

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. I saw opportunities to reverse the effects of aging, accentuating her features and restore her natural allure non-surgically. DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN This patient's primary issue was a facial sagging that distracted from her striking features. I i...

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. I took time to focus on fixing each one of these issues, eventually treating her full face in the long run. DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN It only took a few injections o...

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 394

Background: This woman, from Modesto, was now in her 50's and wanted to rejuvenate her looks. She spent time researching cosmetic surgeons and procedures, and decided to consult with Dr. Mabrie after reviewing his website. They discussed options for giving her a younger and more attractive looking face. She had never received Dermafillers before and was concerned about bruising, as she did no...

Case 390

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This young woman from Napa was looking for a solution for her lips, which she felt weren't as full as they could be. During our examination in my office in San Francisco Bay Area, I noticed signs of moderate volume loss in her upper lip. Her bottom lip, on the other hand, was only experiencing minimal loss. This is exactly the kind of situation that can be adjusted in just a few...

Case 387

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This brave woman came to see us after recently surviving breast cancer. She wanted to find a facial treatment that would restore facial volume she lost during her therapy. She didn't want to look tied anymore. Wanting to feel fresh and new, this patient was ready to start the next chapter of her life. DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN This is another patient that we took the Full Fa...

Case 373

ABOUT OUR PATIENT When it comes to the lips, symmetry is important. When one of your lips looks bigger than the other, you'll definitely take notice because they're a noticeable part of your face. This young woman from Oakland had been feeling self-conscious of her own lips. For most of her life, she had always looked at pictures of people with "ideal" lips, wishing that hers would be just as fu...

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! The truth is, I don't know where I's be today without her. She's taken such good care of me and each and every patient's face that's been put in o...

Case 280

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

Case 275

ABOUT OUR PATIENT Concerned about maintaining facial fullness and skin elasticity, this Bay Area woman was looking for non-invasive cosmetic surgery procedures.

Case 236

ABOUT OUR PATIENT   This young professional woman had just moved to Northern California with her daughter when she found me online. She was worried that her face was looking too tired, thanks to shadows that were appearing under her eyes. We talked about her non-surgical cosmetic options in-depth during a consultation in my downtown San Francisco office. Although she was mostly concerned wi...

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. This woman from the Bay Area, in particular, asked me about her lips when she came in for a consultation at my office in downtown San Francisco. We discussed the many benefits and options for Lip Augm...

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.
