Having full, plump lips is often considered a sign of good health and youth. Symmetric, well-shaped, proportionate lips are generally regarded as alluring and a cross-cultural sign of beauty. For these reasons injectable lip enhancements are common and popular procedures in the cosmetic physician’s office.
As we age, the lips can slowly lose their fullness and shape. The distance between the bottom of the nose and the upper lip sags and slightly lengthens, giving the upper lip a longer and thinner appearance. Adding or restoring volume and shape to the lips is an easy non-invasive way to quickly enhance overall beauty in many patients.
Lip enhancement is simple, quick, and carries immediate reward with relatively low risk. A good lip enhancement is generally subtle, accentuating the natural shape of the lip, correcting any asymmetry, and sometimes simply adding volume.
When done well, the effect is impressive and patients are very pleased. If you are someone who wants to accentuate the shape, improve proportion, or correct some of the volume loss that has happened over time, then you might be a good candidate.

Dr. Smart was born in Salt Lake City and grew up climbing and skiing in the Rocky Mountains. He received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin, and must have enjoyed the harsh winters of the upper Midwest so much that he decided to stay in nearby Chicago to complete a residency in dermatology at the University of Illinois Chicago. With a particular interest in laser and cosmetic medicine, as well as general dermatology, Dr. Smart is excited to join the Advanced Dermatology team as the laser and cosmetic fellow.
