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

A Youthful Mouth

Lips are less of an aesthetic concern for men than for women. Men may find pouty, sensuous lips attractive on a woman, but typically don't put a lot of thought into how their own lips look. The exception is when they begin losing volume due to aging. Even then, however, Dr. Mabrie takes a very conservative approach to treating volume loss in male patients. The goal is to create natural results that don't draw attention to the lips.

The Lips
& The Attractive Face

The Correct Proportions

Studies indicate that an attractive mouth is defined as one which is 1/3 upper lip and 2/3 lower lip. That's true for both men and women, but women's lips are typically larger than men's. That's why Dr. Mabrie is restrained in his use of fillers such as Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® when creating natural, youthful-looking lips for his male patients.

Case 404

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This patient came to me with two goals. The first was to correct his nose, he had a Surgical Rhinoplasty 2 decades previously but felt his nasal bridge could be straighter and his nasal tip more defined. The second was to enhance his cheeks and he was interested in learning the difference between cheek implants, fat transfers and facial dermal fillers. DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PL...

Case 344

ABOUT OUR PATIENT Even though this patient was content with pictures taken from the front, he wasn't satisfied with his profile view. He felt that he needed more chin projection so his features would match the strength of his character.

Full case description to come!  (Temporary description below:) This stylist in San Francisco came to see Dr. Mabrie for an evaluation and treatment of his face.  He felt he didn't look as, "fresh" as he felt.  In particular he was noticing bags under his eyes, no matter how much sleep he got. Dr. Mabrie: It was a pleasure meeting this man, he was brought in by another patient of m...

Case 367

ABOUT OUR PATIENT "Practice what you preach." Now that's a piece of wisdom I think everyone should follow, especially if you happen to be in the cosmetic surgery biz. You always hear me telling you to stay beautiful by committing to the transformative process of using non-surgical dermal fillers. Well, guess what? I do the same thing myself. For the past six years, I've injected myself with diff...

Case 325

ABOUT OUR PATIENT After doing some research about non surgical treatment, this young man from Brazil stopped by my San Francisco office for a consultation. He had a clear vision of what he wanted to improve-his nose. He wanted to remove a small distracting bump and make the tip appear more upturned. Facial dermal filler treatments are ideal for these kinds of aesthetic defects, so I was more than...

Case 420

ABOUT OUR PATIENT Mr. O is a close friend of mine! By day, he's a Data Scientist, but at night...he's a San Francisco DJ. Over the years, Mr. O has quietly observed treatment results on other friends and family. Seeing the great results and positively that grows from looking your best, he decided it was time for his own treatment. DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN I have been wanting to treat Mr. O f...

Case 405

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This young man in his mid-20's consulted with me because he felt that he was looking tired. In particular, he was unhappy about the shadows under his eyes.

Case 296

ABOUT OUR PATIENT After considering under eye treatment for quite some time, this young man from California felt he looked tired and older than he felt, and wanted to get rid of his dark under eye circles.

Case 314

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This patient of mine is an African American man in his 20's.

Case 419

ABOUT OUR PATIENT Say "hello" to Dr. Mabrie's youngest brother, J. He was unhappy with the dark circles under his eyes and felt that they were making him look tired. Even with the proper diet, exercise, and sleep, nothing helped. He's had them all his life. In high school his class mates called him raccoon eyes. DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN I was very excited to finally get to address these prob...

Case 369

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This case is a unique one, as the patient this time is a pretty good friend of mine. For as long as I've known him, I'd never noticed anything unusual about his chin. (And believe me, I pay close attention to that kind of stuff.) Every now and again, however, we couldn't help but notice that certain photos caught him at angles where his chin looked less than strong. For men, a...

Case 339

ABOUT OUR PATIENT Chins say a lot about your face. They can make or break a person's character. This thirty something San Francisco resident knows all about the importance of mandibles from person experience. Like most people, he was subconsciously aware that an understated chin is synonymous with having a "weak" personality. Unfortunately, that's how he felt about his own jawline for the longes...

Case 397

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This San Francisco man had been researching for information about CoolSculpting on RealSelf when he came across my profile. He looked through my site and was impressed by our before and after photo gallery. He wanted to find a way to get rid of the bags that were forming under his eyes. Yet I saw a lot of potential in this patient's face, and that his features would be significa...

Case 300

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This African American man in his 20's had a big problem: he had long felt his nose detracted from the rest of his face. While he appreciated its shape in general, he felt it made him look too childlike. During his search for a surgeon experienced in Ethnic Rhinoplasty, my videos caught his eye, so we met in my downtown San Francisco office, where I consulted with him about non...

Case 302

ABOUT OUR PATIENT This 30 year old man from Chicago discovered my website after considering chin augmentation for quite some time.
