Smile—You’ve Got More Lip-Plumping Options Than Ever!Posted On: September 8, 2017
Looking for luscious lips? Pining for the perfect pout? There’s never been a better time for anyone looking to spruce up their smile with a little help from dermal fillers! Grand Rapids board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brad Bengtson and his team of Master Injectors and Aesthetic Experts at the Bengtson Center pride themselves on providing patients with a natural looking and perfect pout—no duck lips here! We work to stay ahead of the game with what’s new in the market and what’s coming with the latest technology and techniques. More options continue to appear, and in recent days we’ve added two for smoothing lip lines and giving those beautiful smile-makers a boost.
This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler in the JUVEDERM® line, from the reliably consistent and safe Allergan, is made specifically for lips. Just a small amount in the right spot can make a subtle difference—and sometimes subtle is all you need! A little more volume goes a long way, as does smoother-looking skin around the mouth.
A versatile injectable that can fill in hollows and grooves, RESTYLANE® is also suited for volumizing lips, making them rounder, silkier, and smoother. Galderma manufactures this hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, likened to using a fine paintbrush for adding beautiful details to a face.
Want to put your own unwanted fat to work? As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Brad Bengtson can remove cells from somewhere there’s plenty on the body (and who can’t identify a place like that?), after which they can be refined and injected into somewhere you actually want some volume—like, say, your lips? Since the volume comes from you, there’s no need to worry about your body not liking the injection.
Our injectors will work with you to discover what you want for your smile and will recommend the best option based on your discussion. Some patients come to the Bengtson Center with lips that have been naturally thin their whole lives, while others have watched their once-full lips thin over time. We even see patients who simply want to take their already full lips to the next (subtle) level.
Contact the Bengtson Center online or call 616.588.8880 to schedule an appointment to talk to us about lips. We’d love to see your smile—and help you make it even more of what you want it to be!
