Dr. Anita Cela:
Hi, I'm Dr. Anita Cela. As a dermatologist, I treat hundreds of patients a year who are interested in fuller, natural looking lips. Or, want to smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines. Lips are a very distinct feature on a woman's face. While some women may want a fuller look, others may want to smooth the appearance of lines around the mouth.
Treatment should be personalized, being considerate of what you want, while preserving symmetry and proportion. Since every patient is different, during the first consultation, we'll look at your lips in relation to your entire face. Together, we'll choose a treatment that works best for you. We don't want to over correct ... just create a natural looking, long-lasting result.
