Obtaining fuller lips, especially as aging occurs, is very important to many cosmetic surgery candidates. Dr. Alavi, MD, is expert in his field in the art of proper cosmetic fillers.
Nothing says youth like full, pouty lips. Some people are blessed with them. Most people aren’t. When you’re flipping through flawless celebrity photos it’s hard to tell what’s photo-shopped and what’s real. Stars like Angelina Jolie claim nature’s rights for her famous lips. And then there are others who proudly tout the fact that they’ve had work done. Take a look at plastic surgery queen, Dolly Parton. She in her 50s and still looks great. Soap star and actress Lisa Rinna proudly endorses all forms of plastic surgery. Though she suffered a botched lip augmentation for which she had to get corrective surgery, she is still a proponent. And, why not? If done correctly, cosmetic surgery and lip augmentation can do wonders for your features.
If you’re trying to determine if you’re a candidate for lip augmentation it’s best to do your research and go to a qualified cosmetic surgeon who knows how to get you just the right look. Dr. Alavi is just that surgeon. Having performed over 2000 lip augmentations in his San Diego office, Dr. Alavi is well versed in the right products and procedures.
As noted on his website, there are only two options for lip augmentation: temporary fillers or permanent fillers. Temporary fillers aren’t meant to last long, anywhere from 3-12 months. The products used for temporary fillers such as, Juvaderm and Restalyne, are widely known and used but Juvaderm is not FDA approved. If you’re looking for a permanent option, Artefill® Permanent Filler, is the only FDA approved filler on the market. It’s a long-lasting product and requires more care upon application. Luckily Dr. Alavi is one of the top Artefill® Permanent Filler surgeons in his field.
Sultry looking lips can go a long way. They can make you look young, effortless, and always camera ready. However, do your research before you commit. If you want to test the look out, something temporary may be better for you. If you’re ready to commit to something permanent, be sure you find a qualified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Alavi. Whichever you choose, always discuss the procedure and possible side effects with your physician.
