Lip Augmentation and Periocular Wrinkles

Lip augmentation is a procedure that lifts and plumps thin lips. To reshape and enhance the lips, Dr. Torminn utilizes fat grafting. During the fat grafting procedure, Dr. Torminn will collect fat from a donor site – most typically the buttocks, thighs, or abdomen. He purifies the fat, then injects it into the lips to create a fuller, plumper look. Because the fat is taken from the patient’s own body, there is very little to no risk of rejection or allergic reaction. In addition to lip augmentation, Dr. Torminn also offers treatment for periocular wrinkles with laser resurfacing. The area around the eyes is often a difficult place to treat wrinkles. However, with precision laser resurfacing, Dr. Torminn is able to reduce the prominence of wrinkles around the eyes, allowing for a younger, fresher look.
