Angel Wing Lip Augmentation Plumps Lips without Surgery

Don’t know what to do about thinning lips? Lip-plumping beauty products and lip implants are both popular choices for those who are dealing with thin lips that are a result of lost tissue volume or skin laxity. However, implants aren’t your only option thanks to a new technique called Angel Wing lip augmentation.  Dr. Drew Ordon unveiled this innovative technique on The Doctors TV show in late August, pointing out that the Angel Wing procedure is perfect for women seeking a permanent solution for fuller lips without implants.

In this procedure, the surgeon makes two rows of incisions that look like angel wings on the upper lip and on one side of the other lip. The skin between these two incisions is removed and sutures are added to pull the two incisions together so that the upper lip is moved upward very slightly. This creates a shorter distance between the upper lip and the nose, and makes the lips appear more voluminous. Patients can see results after the swelling goes down, and downtime is very short – typically only three to four days after the surgery.

The Angel Wing lip augmentation procedure is an innovative alternative to lip implant surgery with implants and can be an effective way to increase the size and volume of the lips. If you’re still unsure whether lip augmentation is right for you, consider getting dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm which can plump up the lips for about six months. The effects of these fillers resembles those of implants and lip enhancement with the Angel Wing lip augmentation procedure, and can give you a “preview” of what your lips will look like after the procedure without any serious side effects. Talk to a lip augmentation specialist in your area to find out if you would be a good candidate for the Angel Wing procedure or other lip augmentation procedures.

  • Khloe Kardashian made headlines recently after the paparazzi caught her with the infamous “trout pout” – the result of too many injectable fillers in the lips. Kim Kardashian’s younger sister appeared to have some very swollen and lumpy lips after leaving a Beverly Hills salon last week and many are suspecting that that star had cosmetic surgery. Celebrity plastic surgery doctor Dr. Anthony Youn did not treat Khloe Kardashian but believes that the star did have some type of injectable filler. He tells, “Khloe has a trout pout! The excessively plump appearance of her lips could be due to injections of a filler like Juvederm. Her upper lip is larger than her lower lip, causing her mouth to resemble a trout’s. Most injectable fillers last about 6 months in the lips, so given enough time we may see her lips shrink to a smaller and more typical size.” Another plastic surgery doctor, Dr. Michael Fiorellio who is based in New York City, made a similar conclusion. He suspects that Khloe had some type of filler treatment because, “Her lips look swollen and bruised. The product looks lumpy as well”. Dr. Fiorellio is suggesting that this Kardashian sister had either Juvederm or Restylane injections to make her lips appear larger and fuller. Injectable fillers are among the most popular types of non-invasive cosmetic enhancements around the country, and are an attractive option for women who want to add volume to their lips, fill out hollows in their cheeks, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They’re also more affordable than having surgery and can be a convenient option for those who don’t want to deal with the long downtime and recovery process associate with a surgical procedure like lip implants or a facelift.
