Are Fillers The Only Lip Augmentation Option?

By | Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers, Fat Transfer, Restylane® SILK | No Comments
Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most popular way to plump the lips. The filler has few risks or side effects and often looks and feels natural. Lip fillers also have an easy reversal option and patients can choose to not refresh their filler. This makes it one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.    Are fillers the only lip augmentation option? The short answer is no. There are other surgical and non-surgical options that can enhance the appearance of your lips. Starting with the non-surgical lip enhancements other than fillers, BOTOX injections can be used to bring out more of the upper lip to treat the appearance of thinness. This treatment–known as a BOTOX lip flip–does not usually affect the bottom lip.    Many regular filler patients tire of routine injections and want to find a more permanent lip augmentation option. For these patients, silicone lip implants can sometimes provide lower maintenance lip augmentation. Lip implants require a larger amount of commitment because the removal process is not as seamless as fillers. For some patients who regularly have fillers or who require larger scale corrections, lip implants may be an option that saves money in the long run. Fat transfer to the lips is another surgical option that can last longer than dermal fillers.    To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

By | Injectable Fillers, Injectables | No Comments
Lip fillers come in many forms. Restylane products are popular for plumping lips and can provide fantastic looking results, regardless of the look you want. Recently, Restylane has launched their newest product made especially for the lips. While many other Restylane fillers have uses all over the face, Restylane Kysse was formulated exclusively for the lips.    Having gained popularity in Europe, Kysse has now officially come to the United States after the FDA approved it in May. We are now happy to offer Restylane Kysse alongside our many filler options at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. Like other popular lip fillers, Kysse is hyaluronic acid based and requires touch ups usually once or twice a year.   This filler provides softer, more natural feeling lips. Many patients and providers have found that Restylane Kysse not only feels more natural, but also looks more natural. For patients desiring a natural look, this newest offering has many advantages.    At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Jonov and our injectors have already begun using Restylane Kysse and provided great results.

Chin Augmentation: How It Can Transform Facial Profile

By | Chin Augmentation, Injectable Fillers | No Comments
Chin augmentation–whether surgical or non-surgical–can dramatically change facial profile and appearance. As the main feature for the bottom of the face, the chin can affect the look of the jawline and neck. A recessed chin can cause the jaw to look undefined or the neck to look short. Using filler or an implant, Dr. Jonov can address these, and other concerns you may have.  When it comes to facial aesthetics, the bottom of the chin should roughly line up with the tip of the nose. Sometimes, the chin does not fully extend to meet this, and this is known as a recessed chin. Most of the time, this is only slight and does not bother many people. However, for those that choose, a chin augmentation procedure can subtly or dramatically augment this area to create the desired facial profile.  Dr. Jonov of The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery uses two methods for chin augmentation. The first involves a chin implant that he places during a chin augmentation surgery. This provides longer lasting results and works best for those wanting a more dramatic result. It can also alter the shape of the chin.  Non-surgical chin augmentation uses dermal fillers to augment the chin. Results are usually more subtle and last between six months and two years depending on the chosen filler. It can address minor chin recession, dimples, and other minor alterations.

The Advantages Of Lip Augmentation Surgery

By | Face, Injectable Fillers, Injectables | No Comments

One of the most common ways the lips are augmented is with dermal fillers. Fillers are a great, but temporary option. For those who need a more permanent lip augmentation option, Dr. Jonov can perform lip augmentation surgery. 

Lip augmentation surgery usually involves a flexible silicone implant or fat transferred from another area of the body. The surgery–depending on your chosen method–typically takes around an hour to perform. Any incisions are hidden inside the mouth or within the natural contours of your lips. 

Following surgery, your lips will look immediately plumper. The advantages of this type of lip augmentation are that results are permanent, but still natural looking and feeling. There is no need to constantly get lip injections or refresh your results every year. Depending on your needs and goals, Dr. Jonov can often perform a bullhorn lip lift at the same time.

Bigger lips can bring symmetry to the face and help those with uneven or thin lips improve their facial contours. To schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

Cheek Augmentation in Seattle, Bellevue, and Kirkland

Cheek Augmentation: Filler Or Implants?

By | Injectable Fillers, Cheek Augmentation | No Comments

Undefined and hollowed cheeks can contribute to an aged appearance or create facial imbalance. There are many options to correct this and restore balance and achieve a defined face. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we offer surgical and non-surgical cheek augmentation options. 

The least invasive and one of the most popular options is cheek filler. Cheek filler uses temporary dermal fillers to provide fullness and definition in the cheek area. These results will eventually go away though, meaning you will need to refresh your cheek filler occasionally. For patients not wanting an implant, or those who want to try out the look first, cheek filler will not permanently augment the cheeks. 

Patients wanting permanent results, or who need larger correction, are often candidates for surgical cheek augmentation with an implant. During this procedure, Dr. Jonov would place implants in the cheeks to create a balanced and proportional appearance. The implants would be sized specifically to fit and complement your facial features. 

Comparatively, filler is malleable, but provides temporary results. Implants are permanent and can provide more dramatic results in some cases. To know which option best suits you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery by calling 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
