All About A Good Lip Augmentation

Many refer to a bad lip augmentation as "duck lips." This can happen when precision, care, and thoroughness, the key ingredients to performing a good lip augmentation, are overlooked.

It is absolutely necessary to have an artistic eye to perform a good lip augmentation. Along with this,  an expertise in anatomy is needed in order to create fuller lips that are suited for each individual patient. For example, the same amount of filler cannot be used in the same places for a patient with larger lips compared to a patient with smaller lips.

 Different lip shapes and sizes are given different treatments, depending on what the patient is looking for

To create the most natural look, Dr. Devgan stresses that there should be more pink lip show, without causing excessive fullness of the skin around the lips, and without making the lips stick out too far from the face, which is what most would refer to as the duck face. 

All in all, the goal is to create volume and a soft look of fullness without making the lips stick too far out from the face.
