LIP AUGMENTATION – VY ADVANCEMENT

Below are some pictures showing the results from a Lip Augmentation with a VY advancement of the mucosa in the inside of the lips to help make the lips more full | plump | voluminous | augmented for thin lips. You can find an explanation of how we do this further below. The procedure entails drawing a V within the mucosa of the upper and lower lips. The V portion of the lips mucosa is incised and elevated and then advanced where you want more of the volume to be. The V as it is advanced is closed and takes on the shape of a Y. That is the reason why it is called the VY advancement technique for lip augmentation | enhancement.

Below is a picture of an actual patient showing where the drawings are located within the lips. The blue arrow demonstrates the direction the V flap moves:

 

The picture below graphically demonstrates the V portion being elevated and the direction of the V’s flaps movement:

So really depending on how much augmentation you want we will advance the V a certain degree. The width of the V will determine which portion of the lip will advance and be augmented.

How does it work? The Lip Augmentation with a VY Advancment works by the motion of the V moving to the area that you want to enhance and make bigger. The V brings in more tissue to the area that it rolls into. This technique can roll the lips out more showing more of the red and giving more volume. Sometimes you can even add in some tissue by injecting fat into the lips to enhance the VY advancement or tunnel tissue into the lips including your own tissue.

Lip VY Advancement Custom Designed for Your Desires: the before and after picture is of a patient that wanted extra large lips and more extreme lip augmentation. Note this person desired larger lips than we had suggested. We usually say that the upper lip should be 1/2 the size of the lower lip. The lower lip should be about 1 iris width’s (colored part of the eye) in height.
