Second to the eyes, the mouth is often the center of attention. It is also particularly exposed to aging.

Liquid Rhinoplasty with Dermal Fillers
Recently, dermal fillers have been used to change the shape of the nose. Called a Liquid Rhinoplasty, injections can improve the shape, size and in some situations, position of the nasal tip, straighten the nose, and hide a bump. It is not for everyone since it can only be used to fill hollows or depressions. Juvederm Ultra+ was injected along the dorsum of the nose to give the above patient the appearance of a narrower nose.
Redness, bruising and swelling can occur with dermal filler injections, but usually resolve within a few days. (Read how to avoid bruising in our Bruise News blog.) The filler will last up to a year before being reabsorbed by your body. A safety benefit of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers is that the effects can be reversed by an enzyme, returning you to your original state.
