Just Say No to Trout Pout

New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Mark H. Schwartz has extensive experience using a wide array of facial injectables to improve the visible signs of aging and enhance facial contours. He is among the first New York plastic surgeons to offer Juvéderm Volbella XC. FDA-approved specifically to increase lip fullness and improve the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, this innovative hyaluronic acid filler delivers natural looking results instantly.

Many patients who seek lip enhancement treatments are concerned about telltale “trout pout.” To obtain subtle, natural-looking results, Dr. Schwartz uses advanced injection techniques to place Volbella precisely where needed without over-filling the lips and causing distortion. Volbella can be used simply to add volume to the lips or to increase the size of the top or bottom lip to create a more balanced appearance. Other hyaluronic acid fillers can also be used to smooth out the “smoker’s lines” around the mouth, and to help prevent lipstick from feathering or bleeding. The end result is an attractive and more youthful appearance around the mouth.

Volbella treatments are fast, easy and relatively painless. The injections take about 10-15 minutes, and most patients are able to return to work immediately afterward. Temporary side effects include possible mild swelling, redness, and tenderness, which resolve within the first few days after treatments. Results can last for up to one year, but this may vary from patient to patient.

Subtle lip improvement can play a large role in the overall facial appearance. Volbella can be used in conjunction with BOTOX as well as other types of injectable fillers to rejuvenate and enhance other areas of the face for a more harmonious and youthful look.
