French Method for Lip Augmentation at Kare

Refining lip augmentation with Juvederm and Restylane is a practice-focus for Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. One of the most defining techniques used in lip augmentation is known as the ‘French Method’ which optimizes the vertical length of the upper and lower lips.

There are several different methods to volumize the lips and these differ in terms of the type of filler used, the method of injection, the vectors for lip elevation and volumization, and the areas of injection. Dr. Karamanoukian employs the Russian method for lip volumization as well as the French method. Both treatment options optimize different parts of the upper and lower lip so that hte fullness of the vermilion is visualized.
Dr. Karamanoukian uses the French Method to enhance upper and lower lip vertical fullness, thereby volumizing the pink mucosa of the lips and decreasing the distance from the cupis bow to the nose. This micro-injection technique provides more definition to the cupid’s bow, right and left apices of the upper lips, and central peak. The lower lips are also optimized by increasing vertical fullness in the middle two thirds of the lip.
Treatments for lip augmentation in Santa Monica are performed after numbing the skin of the lip with topical cream. Call Dr. Karamanoukian at (310) 998-5533 to schedule an appointment today.
