Dr. Clevens is a recognized expert in surgery of the lips and mouth region having created a lip enhancement teaching video for other surgeons at the request of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery.
Full lips define a younger and more vibrant face. Many individuals long for fuller and richer lips that appear more sensuous or pouty. Dr. Clevens offers several ways to help you attain the element of youthful beauty — full and luscious lips permanently. Certain lip enhancement techniques help create an appearance of fuller lips, while other procedures aim to create a more pouty appearance or to improve lines and wrinkles around the mouth. As we age, the lips thin and the corners of the lip become downturned and this creates an angry or bitter appearance. The corner of the lip lift achieves a youthful lip that no longer conveys a sad or bitter appearance. Many of these procedures are performed in the comfort of our state of the art office under local anesthesia. Often, rejuvenation of the lip is performed in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, eyelid blepharoplasty and skin rejuvenation.

- Lip Lift

- Live Fill Augmentation of the Lips
