Beautiful, shapely lips are alluring and create a stunning effect on your smile. Yet, not everyone is blessed with full, well-defined lips from genetics. Lips also change in appearance with age. Lip plastic surgery can create the shape and fullness desired. This is whether you want a shorter upper lip or a change in lip volume. Lip enhancement is one of our specialties at City Facial Plastics in NYC, giving our patients advanced cosmetic options to achieve the lip appearance they desire.

Dr. Gary Linkov is a highly successful facial plastic surgeon, possessing extensive experience and artistic skill. His Ivy League education and art background give him unique skills in creating beautiful results for his patients. Lips are extremely delicate and require the attention to detail and artistic nuance that Dr. Linkov can provide. He invests the time to listen to his patients concerns and strives to create the changes they desire to their lips and other facial features.

Variations of Lip Enhancements

Like all facial features, lips are unique to each patient. The lip shape and fullness desired by one patient is not the same as what another patient may prefer. Dr. Linkov works closely with his patients to determine the best enhancements to create the look they envision, while balancing the lips with their other facial features. He offers a few variations on lip enhancement procedures, including:

Each lip procedure is customized to ensure the results will match the patient’s facial structure while looking natural. Since lips are integral to speech and mouth movement, it is vital that they remain soft and flexible. Dr. Linkov uses his expert skill and advanced techniques on the lip procedures he completes. He is able to achieve the desired result while keeping the lips looking natural. Every lip procedure is done with discretion in mind, hiding the evidence of surgical alterations.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Lip Procedure?

There are many reasons people choose to have a lip procedure performed. One of the main reasons is to improve the overall shape and fullness. Thin lips, due to genetics or aging, can be addressed through plastic surgery. Fat grafting and other procedures are used to augment the lips for a fuller, sexier appearance. If the length of the upper lip is too long, a lip lift can reduce the space between the nose and top lip for better balance. There are many different ways to improve the appearance of the lips, giving them an attractive shape and volume.

If you have noticed that your lips look thin, oversized or lack definition when you look in the mirror or see pictures of yourself, a lip procedure may be right for you. People of all ages undergo lip enhancements to give their mouth the desired shape and fullness. Young women seek to improve their lip shape and volume for a sexy appeal. Older women want to restore fullness and lift the corners of lips to a more youthful position. There are many different options available to give you the lips you have always wanted when you choose Dr. Linkov to perform your lip procedure.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
