Dr. Lawrence Gray
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
“We like to get it right the first time. We see many patients who have had over-filled lips, which is a very unnatural look. Many non-plastic surgeons often overfill the vermillion border, thinking it will give a younger look. They do not appreciate that the aging lip and area above the lip has lengthened and needs to be shortened, not overfilled for a more youthful appearance.”
