Lip collagen surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Lip collagen surgery


Avatar m tn I was in a bad bike crash about 5 months ago and i practically completely ripped off my lower lip (Due to helmet strap) and now its lopsided and one size is bigger than the other. I got some steroid shots but it just softened it.
Avatar n tn I'm interested in having lip augmentation. My question is: Is there a suitable injection that can be done on my lips that is not permanent so that I can "test the waters" before having the augmentation? I have orthodontic surgery at age 30, wearing braces for 5 years. My teeth look great. But now I have no upper lip and what I do have looks like I've been a smoker. I have lots of lines. I've tried over the counter products with no success.
Avatar n tn Hello, This lip scarring can be healed by laser resurfacing, collagen fillers or by plastic surgery. There is no topical treatment to heal such scarring of the lips. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Surgery can’t be done on scar tissue due to the fact that tissue regrowth on a scar isn’t stable enough for sutures (lack of collagen) so, to keep the sutures in place, it would be necessary to go deeper or use tissue surrounding the scar. This would cause the scar on your lip to be larger, or more noticeable, than the existing one and the skin might grow in as a slightly different color. is that true doctor?
Avatar n tn and i got three stitches on the chin beacuse of this my chin and lower lip got dislocated slightly .how can it be brought back to original position .
Avatar f tn I had metacril injections two weeks ago in Costa Rica to my lips and nasalabial folds. The metacril in the bottom lip has now turned into hard bumps, which I think was the result of going and having my teeth whitened afterwards and the Zoom laser hitting that area so long. Has anyone else had experience with metacril? Any recommended plastic surgeons in the Dallas area I can go to and follow up with this issue? Thanks!
Avatar n tn If the indented scar is fairly shallow, then dermabrasion or an ablative laser treatment might reduce the edges of the crater to produce less shadowing. Attempting to fill the area with collagen or a hyaluronic acid filler (Restylane or Juvederm) might help a little, but would require repeated injections. To completely eliminate the depression, assuming the scar is small enough, then complete surgical resection of the depressed area would be appropriate.
Avatar n tn I have had 2 cysts in my life, the first one was removed surgically, the second, by cortisone injection. If I ever get a third, the surgery will be my first choice. I went in for the surgery, laid down on a bed, doctor came in, froze me, cut me open and was done in minutes. 15 minutes max. The only thing I can suggest about this method is make sure your surgeon knows where to place scars.
Avatar n tn Leukemia, Lupus, Scleroderma, Multiple Myeloma or Collagen Vascular Disease. I'm presently beening evaluated for MS but starting to think that since the symptoms of these disease are similiar maybe MS isn't the culprit. The only change in my symptoms since Feb 24th have been easy bruising only on my forearms and thighs. These bruises appear out of nowhere (about the size of an m&m) and then they disappear as mysteriously as they appeared.
Avatar f tn There is a short vertical line on one side of my upper lip extending right down to the lip. I also have one pock mark under my nose. The skin texture looks dry and parched with many fine lines that don't extend all the way down to my lip. All of this is on the area that was worked on where the skin is also pigmented. The moisturizer, as you suggested, stops the itchyness.
Avatar n tn With me I have no EBV or other virus like many as I have read on medical forums such as this - although as a child I had viral meningitis. Surgical implant? Possibly the collagen used in a lip augmentation I had, and an implant my daughter has as well? Vaccinations? How to begin there? Medicines? Possible. Lack of {iodine}? Environmental would be difficult (- I have mercury fillings but my daughter does not. Killed that theory).
Avatar n tn As a general guide the treatment options range from local applications, superficial procedures such as microdermabrasion to lasers and cosmetic surgery. To treat chicken pox scars skin specialists first reduce underlying fibrous adhesions and later either perform a dermal filler or stimulate new collagen growth with Non Ablative Laser Rejuvenation. It will be difficult to recommend a particular treatment to you but there are many options and medicinal products available.
Avatar n tn I was hoping to increase the collagen levels in that area somehow to thereby re-generate the skin tissue to bring that area more level w/the surrounding area. The red area I mentioned contains a slightly redder area w/one of the wrinkles or lines being a bit redder and noticeable than the other wrinkles on the glans. There appear to be 2 small fissures on that line that are red, also, but I notice similar fissures in other lines on the glans that are normal skin color.
Avatar f tn Your face may become particularly dry if your excess oil problem is isolated to your back. Make sure you use a good moisturiser and lip balm. Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream is good for lips. For your face i would recommend a cleanser and moisturiser by Lutsine, either the one for dry skin or the one for spot-prone skin which has become dry due to acne treatment.
281565 tn?1295986283 I had an encounter with mine last week that left me with a bloody lip and sprained tooth. Watch out for those logs ........ Here's hoping you get some relief soon.
Avatar n tn MS does scare me also, and it may end up being that for me, my gram was diagnosed at age 60 with MS, she did very well, she lived until 79, and never was in a wheelchair. She died because of complications from heart surgery. I miss her so much. Take care Angela, and please let me know if you ever get any answers, we are so much alike its unreal.
667923 tn?1421466324 I was told by my Endocrinologist to see why my face has so much numbness over the top lip, tongue and forehead. It is mostly all located on the left side of my face. When I get upset or fret @ temple will hurt and pain will shoot through it. Usually, the left one hurts all the time, but the right one has had pain as well. I will look into a Pituitary center...
Avatar m tn G-spot amplification, also called G-spot augmentation, G-Spotplasty or the G-shot, is a cosmetic surgery procedure for temporarily increasing the size and sensitivity of what some believe to be the G-spot, which is located about half way between the pubic bone and the cervix about 3 in. into the pelvis, in which a dermal filler or a collagen-like material is injected into the bladder-vaginal septum.
Avatar n tn The ENT that ran the tests did not feel qualified to handle this case, so he referred me to a colleague who does a lot of throat cancer surgery and work around the hyoid bone. He reviewed the tests and theorized that if we removed the portion of the hyoid that was not firmly attached to the rest of the bone, it should solve the problem.
Avatar f tn I showed a dermatologist what I was doing, and she said I am pulling out the actual sebaceous glands! This is self-surgery, and very dangerous. Spirano-Lactone is a wonderful drug for calming this condition.
211940 tn?1267884866 I have been looking everywhere for an answer, maybe someone here can. About 1 year ago I began having pain in my right upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow, about mid arm where the biceps brachii muscle or brachialis muscle is. I went to my Primary Physician who said it was a torn brachialis muscle. Since I was working at a 2nd job, I thought it might be job related so I went through the whole Workman's Comp issue.
Avatar n tn i was using castor oil as well (that's what they recommend for Blepharitis), and this helped until i underwent surgery. within 2 days it was back and worse than ever. so since then i started using the internal methods to help, and that has helped everything- but to finish it, the above mentioned cure for benzoyl peroxide allergy has so far worked very well (i used the watered down hydrocortisone one time along with a follow up exfoliation just with water and wash cloth).
Avatar n tn What I can add is that I started a very intense exercise program last week, and the two weeks before that my father had a quadruple heart bypass surgery so I am going to say that this is most definitely stress related. But any type of cream or medication to help clear these flare-ups would be greatly appreciated!!!
Avatar n tn I have been suffering these sypmtoms over the last 4 months, tight neck, tingling in face, spaced out, almost robotic movement all over, very stange pressures in synus area and tingling around my top lip. I was diagnosed with a hyperactive thyroid 6 months ago which is under controle know with medication. My Doctor says I am suffering anxiety, after such a stressfull last 6 months. This all ties in with what you guys have said.

Avatar n tn My doctor actually told me to stick with the gold bond if it works, but that's treating the symptoms...sigh. I just had a run of anti biotics after a surgery, wouldn't that take care of any kind of BI/yeast/uti??
Avatar n tn At the same time I started getting chapped lips - I thought I had got them sunburned or I used old lip cream - or I used a new toothpaste or the mouth piece that I use for sleep apnea was not cleaned well enough so it irritated my mouth.
