Aspen, Colo. – At the summer Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), an expert said that treating younger patients’ lips requires finesse and some psychology.
“They may say, ‘I want my lips to look like Angelina Jolie’s.’ That may not even be possible for their lips,” said Ava Shamban, M.D. She is a Beverly Hills-based dermatologist.
Larger lips may not fit the person’s face, she explained, “and everyone should look like themselves.” Core aesthetic physicians such as dermatologists can correct the asymmetry that commonly occurs in younger lips. But this task typically requires multiple visits, said Dr. Shamban. “I don’t know why. But you can’t get it to hold that shape with the first treatment. When the lip redrapes over the filler, it takes maybe three treatments. But it works.”
Additionally, selfie-snapping youngsters often notice that their lips look smaller when they smile. However, she said, everyone’s lips look smaller when performing a big smile — she tells patients this to reassure them. “When treating lips, you must deal with the psychology of the patient as well.”
