Different lip styles in Edmonton
Lips are as diverse as the human face. While no two sets of lips are exactly the same, all lips have these five structural planes in common. It is the different combinations of these planes that lead to the unique appearance of each individual’s lips. The entire make of the face changes with age, genetics, and environment.
Why Lips are Important?
The face and, in particular, the lips, are either a static or kinetic state. As cosmetic augmenters, understanding the difference between these two states is essential in planning treatment for our patients. During an examination, we must examine our patients in both a kinetic and static position.
kinetic Position for Lip Fillers
We accomplish that by asking the patient to smile and frown. A simple trick to assist you in establishing the relatively static position of a patient’s lips is to ask him or her to utter the letter “M.” The position of the lips after this consonant is spoken is considered the static position. In lips and facial fillers, it is important to focus your attention on the nasolabial as the patient smiles. If these areas are augmented, it is imperative to consider how augmentation will affect the kinetic fold of the tissue.
Static Position for lip fillers
Augmenting the lips in a static position, without viewing the smile line and incisal appearance can lead to overfilling of the lips and produce an unpleasant appearance.
There is a consensus within the scientific community on broad features of a woman’s face that are attractive to men. There are baby features that are implanted in our psyche. Having a large forehead, large, wide-set eyes, a small nose, and thick lips are all neonatal qualities. These characteristics stimulate the nurturing side in us.
These are facial qualities that infants possess, and it is hypothesized that as humans, we react receptively to them. Men respond to a combination of these neonatal expressions, as well as mature, expressive features that include higher, wider cheekbones. Expressive facial features add to the perceived attractiveness, which would include a wider smile, higher eyebrows, and larger pupils. The expression of these ideas on the female face promotes a sense of availability to mate.

Lips can be divided into six segments, which correspond to the planes that constitute the lips. The upper lip is segmented into three parts which
