Face and neck plastic surgery consists of a multitude of procedures that vary from cheek augmentations, facelifts, fat transfers to the face, and other combined procedures that help provide a more youthful appearance.
Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with beauty and youth. Lip augmentation enhances the contour and fullness of lips for a younger, healthier appearance. Unfortunately, our lips are subject to sagging as we age. The colored portion of the lips thins out and the arch of the upper arch (cupid’s bow) flattens. This problem is especially noticeable in women with naturally thin lips.
Fat grafting is available as a surgical alternative. Other surgical options include Gore-Tex implants or the use of Alloderm to provide greater definition and a well-defined border.

Fat transfer to the face is often used in conjunction with a face lift or by itself. As with fat transfer in other areas of the body, it is important to follow post-operative instructions for optimal fat survival.
