The lips can be thin and lacking definition even in young patients. With aging, thinning of the lips (especially the upper lip) occurs because of bone loss (the maxilla supports the upper lip) as well as loss of volume. There is also a loss of definition between the white and red lip.
Thin lips can make you look sad, angry, or bitter. Lip augmentation or harmonization is one of the most requested treatments in aesthetic medicine. It is performed by injecting hyaluronic acid; the amount injected depends on the initial volume as well as the desired aesthetic goal. We advise that lip volume be in harmony with the size and shape of the face, so as to obtain a natural result.
