Dr. Monica Tadros Facial Plastic Surgeon & Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon is a distinguished Facial Plastic Surgeon & Reconstructive Surgeon and Educator with an exclusive approach to lip augmentation. She has offices located on Park Avenue in Manhattan and in Bergen County, New Jersey. Lip augmentation is one of the most highly publicized and popular trending treatments thanks to celebrities making headlines with a fuller pout. For instance, Kylie Jenner has had everyone talking with her constant social media posts and the controversial #kyliejennerchallenge!
Dr. Tadros has pioneered a new technique in lip shaping, “Love Your Lips” that sculpts your natural pucker just right the way so you will LOVE them. Sometimes that means bigger, and sometimes it just means better! Her technique ranges from soft and lovely reshaping of your lips to a luscious, fuller lip with more definition and curves that balances the rest of your features.
There are a wide variety of injectables on the market which are clinically proven to sustain safe, effective and long-lasting results. These non-invasive methods rely on substances, usually composed of hyaluronic-acid and dissolvable suture materials require no recovery or downtime in a hospital bed, just natural-looking supple lips.
What makes Dr. Tadros’ specialized “Love Your Lips” technique different from other doctors?
Most lip augmentation techniques involve injecting the lips in horizontal fashion, accentuating the rim of the lips evenly and pumping them up. The result is an obvious unnatural appearance of what may be referred to as “duck lips”, “sausage lips” or “rubber tires”. This technique inflates the lips unnaturally, and blunts the vermillion border (lip-liner line). Dr. Tadros performs her signature procedure customizing every result to perfection. Get ready to pucker up!
Dr. Tadros “Love Your Lips” technique treats the entire lip complex exactly where definition and shaping can enhance the resting pout. This is individual to the patient but includes treating the philtrum, cupids bow and deep orbicularis muscle that encircles the mouth from the base of the nose to the top of the chin. She never blunts the vermillion border (lip-liner line) insisting it must be sharp to appear natural. Her strokes are artistic with tear-drop tapered application of product that supports the eversion of your natural red lip and only increases size by altering muscle height and position-rather than just inflating the lip. The result only the most natural lip enhancement based on your anatomy.
When to Consider Lip Enhancement
- Your lips have always been thin and disappear when you smile
- As you age, your lips have become thinner and less full
- You feel self-conscious about how your lips look
- Having fuller lips will help balance out your face
Although more permanent options exist, patients are advised to undergo a temporary non-surgical filler procedure to evaluate the dramatic effects of lip shaping. Dr. Tadros never recommends permanent filler injections because the lips are just too unpredictable and permanent fillers will not age well with the patient.
Dr. Tadros includes surgical lip lifting as a permanent solution in select patients with upper lip elongation. In this procedure, the position of the muscle is lifted and excess skin removed from within the nostril crease to create an ideal cupids bow. This is the most effective and natural way to enhance a very flat upper lip.
Having full, plump lips is often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, there are many ways to enhance them. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful lip enhancement and are pleased with the results.
