ABOUT OUR PATIENT

This middle-aged woman from San Francisco had never been entirely happy with the size of her upper lip. She would go as far as to put rolled-up Kleenex along her gum line so it would stick out more in photos. That's why she was so excited to find out that Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation using dermal fillers was a viable solution to her problem. She took her time before she jumped into having a procedure done, conducting her own research in order to find the right surgeon to refine her face.

Lucky for us, she found our practice via Yelp. She enjoyed looking through my portfolio of patient's results in our before and after galleries (much like you're doing right now), and she decided to reach out to us. Since we responded to her within 24 hours, she trusted us enough to begin her journey of non-surgical discovery with the Mabrie family.

DR. MABRIE'S TREATMENT PLAN

It was important to take things slow with this patient. She was new to the realm of cosmetic surgery, especially non-surgical procedures. Even so, she had a very clear, distinct goal that she would stop to remind me from time to time.

"I want the lips to be fuller but believable"

As a board certified plastic surgeon who's seen his share of swollen "bee sting" lips, I knew exactly what this patient meant. She wanted her upper lip to have authentic, natural looking volume. She wanted a discreet improvement, not a drastic change. Luckily for her, these kinds of nuanced adjustments are what I specialize in.

We disscused to use Juvederm Ultra to make this slight augmentation. In order to minimize any swelling or bruising that tends to occur post-treatment, I used a microcannula to place the filler, which simplified the overall process quite a bit.

THE OUTCOME

I admit, I'm falling in love with lip augmentation procedures lately. Using Juvederm Ultra instead of Restylane to augment the mouth area has been providing astounding results that come easily and painlessly. Just check out what a difference it made in this patient's lips! After her treatment she said "I love my lips!"
