Get Rid Of Marionette Lines

New York NY Facial Plastic Surgery

No other area of your body gives away tell-tale signs of your age more than your face. Unfortunately, this is also the most visible part of your body; therefore, hiding your age is often quite difficult. Loss of volume and fine lines begin as early as the late twenties for many people. As you continue to age, sagging tissues and new lines or folds will appear as normal characteristics of aging. Now, while these are “normal,” it does not mean that they are desired.

One area of the face that many women feel the most self-conscious about is the “parentheses” around their mouth. These lines can give off the impression that you are sad or frowning, even if you are having a good day. Your “resting face” may give off an impression that you do not want it to give off. You could be in your mid-thirties and a truly happy and content person, yet the lines around your mouth give off a completely different expression.

These “parentheses” around the mouth area are called marionette lines. Ironically, they are usually formed by years of smiling that creates the folds between the mouth and cheeks. Facial fillers allow a cosmetic surgeon the ability to restore fullness and vitality to the face during a simple office visit. Dr. Maurice Khosh offers safe, effective, and long-lasting results from facial fillers. There are three categories of fillers that each have a slightly different indication, injection technique, duration, and cost. Dr. Khosh will use his expertise to help you choose the best type of injection to achieve your goals and particular needs.

Dr. Khosh has a full line of injectable facial fillers:

  • Belotero
  • Juvederm
  • Juvederm Volbella
  • Juvederm Vollure XC
  • Radiesse
  • Restylane
  • Restylane Defyne
  • Restylane Lyft
  • Restylane Refyne
  • Restylane Silk
  • Sculptra
  • Voluma

If you are unhappy with the impression your face is giving, please contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Khosh to learn about the options available. Facial fillers can help reduce the signs of aging and improve areas that detract from your natural beauty and true age.
