Combat the signs of aging.
Many of our patients express concerns with the everyday signs of aging. The good news is that often, intervening on the lips alone can make a significant difference in a patient’s overall appearance and youthfulness!
Dr Turkle performs lip enhancement in Indianapolis and Carmel Indiana with beautiful results. Lip enhancement may be performed non-surgically or surgically, depending on the particular patient and their goals.
Lip enhancement can help those who have lost lip volume with aging, those with uneven lips that need to be re-shaped or those who simply prefer a larger volume. Often with time, the upper lip can increase in length, and decrease in volume leading to an elongated facial appearance which may appear “aged”. Intervening on the lips alone can make a significant difference in one’s overall appearance and youthfulness. Often non-surgical treatments with filler injections is optimal for improving lip volume and appearance.
When aging is more advanced or if the upper lip has become elongated, a minor surgery called an upper lip lift may be performed. This restores the upper lip back to its original youthful position and improves volume at the same time, leading to a more “upturned” and full appearance.
