Get The Perfect Lip Size & Shape Using Lip Fillers

The art of lip fillers:

The lip fillers artist must have deep understanding of the construction of lips and facial feature and interaction of various mediums as they are applied; this is essential for the cosmetic lip fillers injector in term of to the oral-facial augmentation using dermal filler. Having an intimate understanding of what contributes to the lips and perioral structure is vital in understanding similarities that make them up and how we can enhance these features, thus creating our best cosmetic results. It is vital we have a grasp on the process of aging and how it affects the oral-facial area. Through this understanding, we are able to reverse the signs of aging and give you the lips that match your facial feature, personality, age, length of the lips and the client gender. Patients often come in for consultations because of the loss of volume in their lips. The loss of lip volume contributes more to the development of fine wrinkles and deepening of lines around the lips as lack of fullness in the lips presents more of an aged view of the face.



The planes of lips, what makes our lips look as they are?

The lips are formed by upper and lower parts. The upper part has three planes form the upper lip, and the lower one has two planes. Understanding these planes gives the Lip fillers injector insight into important factors such as the location of injection, direction lip fillers placement, and the amount of fillers in each place. The two upper lateral planes are cone-shaped, with the apex at the corners of the mouth and the base bordering the middle plane. The middle plane of the upper lip is semicircular and tapers toward the opening of the mouth. The lower lip has only two planes that come in shape of a teardrop that taper toward the corner of the mouth.

Segments of the lips

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 correspond to the planes that make up the upper lip. The three parts are divided between the cone and tapered semi-bucket shape of the philtrum.

The lower lips are also segmented into three parts that correspond to the planes that make up the lip. The lower lip is composed of a teardrop shape that has a ball and a tail. The segments are divided at the ball-and-tail junction. Some client comes only to inject filler in the vermillion border and cupid bow to have a better-defined lips

Lips style after lip fillers:

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. The face and, in particular, the lips, can be viewed in 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. This can be accomplished 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. 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 ideals on the female face promotes a sense of availability to mate.

Indications of lips fillers:

Patients often come in for consultations because of the loss of volume in their lips. The loss of lip volume contributes more to the development of fine wrinkles and deepening of lines around the lips as lack of fullness in the lips presents more of an aged view of the face. Another young client my present unsatisfied with lips shape fullness and this is often having a reflection on their self-esteem. Lip fillers are indicated for restoring the lips fullness and reshaping them. The youthful face is all about volume. Lip fillers and facial fillers with injectables strive to recreate this look by refilling areas of lost volume.


Injectable fillers:

There is a wide array of fillers now available for cosmetic lip and facial fillers. In selecting the proper filler, the injector must select which filler to use in the same manner an artist chooses his or her material of expression on a canvas. It is important to note that there are no good or bad materials, just different fillers that are intended for various applications and effects around the face. The nasolabial fold, for example, has remarkable features. The fold is deep and the malar fat and associated anatomy is lateral to the fold. This contrasts the medial aspect of the fold significantly, where this area has less bulk and is more tightly laid around the orbicularis oris and levitator muscles. The filler of choice must be resilient enough to be placed in an area that experiences persistent kinetic movement. The lips, in contrast, are in constant motion. It is paramount that the injected filler be placed in the natural planes that constitute the lips. Proper plane placement will stabilize and ensure the duration of the implanted filler and sculpted shape. Placing different types of fillers in the lips will result in different cosmetic results. A prime example is the hyaluronic acid (HA). HA placed in the lips will keep its injected shape, dependent on the plane placement and flow of the material. The properties of HA will tend to displace tissue around the injected site. This effect can be exploited. Our fillers of Choice for lips fillers are Juvederm Volift from Allergan and Restylane Kysse from Galderma.
