Lip Enhancement (Lip Augmentation)
Lip Augmentation / Lip Enhancement is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure which uses synthetic or biological products to enhance or augment the lips. The doctor can use a variety of products to achieve lip enhancement including Restylane. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David P. Rapaport, MD has been offering lip enhancement as his Manhattan, New York office for over a decade.
Doctor Rapaport understands that the greatest fear of patients seeking lip enhancement is an overdone, unnatural result. He reassures his patients that he too finds such a look unacceptable. His results appear natural and not overdone.
The Manhattan, New York Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is widely sought out by models, actors, and of course women of all occupations for his beautiful yet natural lip augmentation (lip enhancement) results.
