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.

Eric is such a great doctor! He treated me as family and was very thorough and diligent. I was very nervous but he made me feel comfortable at all times especially when undertaking a 7 hour surgery. I flew in all the way from the East Coast to see him as I heard he was the best in his field. His staff is friendly and caring. You can tell he has a good heart. I recommend!

I am one month out from my procedure with Dr. Cerrati and could not be happier with my results. From my initial inquiry to today, both the doctor and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Cerrati has a wonderful team that makes scheduling, payments, and follow up questions easy. The doctor himself is attentive, happy to answer questions and did a great job of listening to my concerns and ideas, while presenting his professional opinion in a respectful and helpful way. My recovery was a breeze, thanks to his careful techniques. At just one month, I am seeing a drastic improvement in both form and function. So thankful to have Dr. Cerrati based in my home of Utah, but I would have traveled across the country to see him!

Dr. Cerrati performed a facelift (w/ neck tightening), upper and lower blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser resurfacing for me in February 2021. I’m 3.5 months post op and the results have exceeded all my expectations; beyond what I ever could have imagined. I experienced minimal pain, swelling and bruising, after my 8 hour surgery and was ready to be seen in public in less than 10 days. Dr. Cerrati and his team are without question, second to none in their field. I have been treated with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, patience, kindness and unconditional support from the beginning of my journey to today. Any questions or concerns I have ever expressed have ALWAYS been given the utmost respect and Dr. Cerrati pays attention to every detail in his patient care. His artistic talent and surgical skills are remarkable. In my opinion, he is a truly gifted plastic surgeon. The best you’ll find in the industry. If you’re considering any facial plastics procedures, Dr. Cerrati, and his team, is the place to come, even if it means traveling to do so. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better and giving me back my self confidence that I was sure I’d lost forever.

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!
