Did you know that your lips are as individual as your fingertips? There are billions of lips in the world and each one is unique. Your genes determine your lip shape and color. But guess what? Both color and shape are also affected by aging. So basically, all those magazine articles that tell you lip shape says this or that about your personality are nothing more than clickbait; just in case you were wondering.

What your lips really reveal has more to do with age and the condition of your skin. When you are young, your lips are well-defined and plump. They signal youth and vitality. That signal changes with age. As you come into middle age, your lips begin to shrink and droop at the corners. Collagen, which provides natural volume and firmness, begins to slow production, and your lips begin to thin out and lose that youthful plumpness.

Reversing the Process

While you cannot actually reverse the aging process, with various treatments, you can change the appearance of your lips. Volume can be added to make them fuller and more defined once again. This can be done with dermal filler injections or surgically with lip dermal fat grafting.

Temporary measures can be taken to add balance and symmetry to lips. Juvéderm® or Restylane® are often used to achieve these goals. Some individuals choose to use dermal lip fillers such as these to help them decide if they would rather go a more permanent route.

Maintaining Healthy Lips

Whether you decide to make a temporary or permanent change in the appearance of your lips, you want to keep them looking healthy and appealing. You can do this by keeping them moisturized and hydrated. Drinking enough water is important for all your bodily functions as well as maintaining healthy skin. Additionally, using sunscreen will protect the delicate skin on your lips. Before applying lip color, apply basic moisturizer. Simple products such as cocoa butter, aloe vera, coconut oil or vitamin E work well as a moisturizing primer for lip color.

When you are ready to make a change and enhance your lips, contact Dr. Eric Cerrati. Schedule an appointment for consultation and discover the benefits of cosmetic lip enhancement.

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!

Dr. Cerrati is AMAZING at what he does! He is very professional, personable, and always makes sure you are comfortable during your procedures. After seeing 3 other physicians and having procedures done to help open my nasal passages, Dr. Cerrati came up with a different solution that actually worked. He is very meticulous and precise with all of his work and my facial injections were nearly painless. He does great work, I highly recommend!

Dr. Cerrati, Nani and the entire staff made my day today! I put my wallet on the hood of my car and drove off with it there on my way to my appointment this morning. By the time I realized what I had done my wallet was long gone. I ended up being 20 minutes late for my appointment (which I absolutely hate) and the staff was nothing but understanding and so so nice when I told them what happened. It was my first experience in the office but absolutely not my last! Not only am I impressed with the way I was treated but they did an amazing job!! My appointment was short and sweet with a job well done and I couldn't help but leave with happy tears in my eyes. Kind people are the best!!!

Dr. Cerrati is absolutely amazing! I was so happy with my fillers that I received. Definitely will be returning to him again! I trust him and recommended him 100% to all my family and friends. He always does his best to make sure his patients come out with the best possible outcome!
