A pouty lip has become a hallmark of sensuality and sexiness, leading more and more women to attempt to imitate that look. Dr. Conrad offers different techniques for lip augmentation out of his Wichita, Kansas office. The technique used is determined by whether the patient wants fuller lips or their border back and lines softened. Lip augmentation is an effective way to plump your lips and give you the pout you desire.

Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers, like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®, are non-surgical procedures that are performed in the office. You are a strong candidate if you’re in good health. Dr. Conrad’s certified RNs will consult with you and make a recommendation on which method is the most appropriate to meet your expectations and treatment goals.

Procedure

On the day of your procedure, one of Dr. Conrad’s three trained and certified nurses will inject a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid into your lips. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in your body and aids in the health of your skin. The procedure will only take a few moments, and you are free to resume your daily activities immediately following your visit.

Results

After a dermal filler injection, your results will be almost immediate. However, you will likely experience some swelling for a couple of days, so your full results may not be completely obvious for several days. Both Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® will usually last eight to 12 months.

 

Adding volume to your lips is a quick and minimally invasive way to dramatically change the appearance of your face.

Conrad Breast Lift Patient Before and AfterWhile sagging breasts are a fact of life for many women, it is not something you have to settle for. Many factors can lead to breast sagging (ptosis), including pregnancy, weight loss, and aging. However, a breast lift (mastopexy) can give you a more youthful appearance by raising your breasts to a higher position on your chest. Dr. Conrad utilizes multiple techniques when performing breast lift surgery; the specific technique used for your procedure will be determined during your consultation. The technique used can depend on such factors as the severity of your ptosis, your desired result, and the anatomy of your breast.

Grades of Breast Ptosis

There are three grades of breast ptosis, and the specific grade affects the technique that Dr. Conrad will use during your procedure. During your consultation, he will examine your breast and the degree of sagging you are experiencing. He will use this information to determine which technique would be most effective for meeting your treatment goals.

Grade 1: Mild

If the nipple falls to the bottom crease of the breast (also called the inframammary fold), then you have mild ptosis.

Grade 2: Mild to Moderate

This ptosis is characterized by the nipple falling 1 to 3 centimeters below the inframammary fold.

Grade 3: Severe

This is indicated when the nipple falls more than 3 centimeters below the fold.

Procedure Options

During your consultation with Dr. Conrad, he will discuss which of the following techniques is most suitable to your specific goals.

For small breasts and/or minor ptosis:

  • Partial Lift: Gives a slight lift to the breast, making it most suitable for those women with mild ptosis. Dr. Conrad will make an incision above the areola and shift the areola upward. He will also adjust the skin and tissue to enhance the shape of the breast.
  • Benelli Lift: Also known as a donut lift, Dr. Conrad makes an incision around the areola, removing any excess skin from this location. The nipple is also moved higher up on the breast.

For larger breasts and moderate to severe ptosis:

  • Lollipop Lift: This is similar to the Benelli Lift (with the incision around the areola), but Dr. Conrad will also make an incision down the midline of the breast to the inframammary fold. This causes the incision to resemble a lollipop. The larger incision with this technique allows for greater adjustment of skin and tissue.
  • Anchor Technique: This is also known as the inverted-T. It is similar to the lollipop lift in that the incision resembles a lollipop, but it also includes an incision along the inframammary fold. These incisions resemble an anchor, and it gives Dr. Conrad the greatest access to shape the breast tissue. Additionally, it is most suitable for larger breasts with an excess amount of sagging.
