Surgical Correction for Furrows Between Corners of the Mouth and Nose

Are you considering getting a surgical procedure done to help reduce the appearance of furrows between the corners of your mouth and nose? These lines are known as the nasolabial folds.

Everyone has these folds, but as people age, the lines can become more prominent. If you have noticed that these indentations are becoming more pronounced or are starting to sag, it can cause worry. As people age, they might also notice additional lines that develop near the nasolabial folds. They might also extend to the chin. These are sometimes called marionette lines. You might not like the signs of aging that your face is undergoing, and you’d like to do something about it.

Fortunately, some procedures can help with this issue. One of the best and most popular options is fat transfer, which is discussed below.

What’s Causing the Lines and Furrows?

Wrinkles and lines on the face can be caused by a wide range of factors. One of the causes of deepening indents and lines is a loss of fat in the face, which can cause the cheeks and other regions of the face to sag. Atrophy of facial fat could be caused by aging, and in some cases, it could happen because of weight loss.

Loss of collagen is another common cause. As we age, we lose collagen, and it is difficult for the body to continue making more. This can thin the skin and make the lines appear deeper and more noticeable. Some of the other factors that can affect the way the skin ages include smoking and being exposed to environmental pollutants.

Fill the Furrows with a Fat Transfer Procedure

We provide a procedure that can help to remove these lines and wrinkles. It is a minor surgical technique that makes use of the patient’s fat tissue. This tissue is removed using a simple liposuction procedure and is done using local anesthesia.

First, a local anesthetic is injected and then two small bilateral incisions are made around the corners of the mouth. The doctors utilize the patient’s fat tissue, which is inserted using a surgical cannula.

There are many benefits to choosing this type of procedure. First, you will find that the results are effective, and you will be able to see a clear difference in the way you look. Those lines will start to smooth out and disappear, giving you a more youthful appearance. Another benefit is that there is virtually no downtime with this procedure. Complications are rare, so you can rest easy. You will also be pleased to know that the results of this procedure are long-lasting.

Imagine how wonderful it will be to get up in the morning and look in the mirror to see your younger self staring back at you once again. This could be the perfect procedure that you’ve been looking for…however, it could be even better when you rethink where you will be getting the procedure.

Choose an Idyllic Location

Rather than getting the procedure in a clinic near your home, you might want to consider heading abroad to get the surgery. Think about just how nice it would be to travel to a location like Cozumel, Cancun, or Tijuana for the procedure. You could get your procedure and spend your recovery period enjoying all there is to do in one of these locations.

We strive to make the trip as simple and as enjoyable as possible. You can travel to locations like Cancun and Cozumel easily, and it is quite convenient for those in Canada or the United States. There are plenty of flight options available. We can also recommend a range of hotel, condo, and rental homes in the area that you could stay at while awaiting your procedure and during your recovery.
When you are choosing a place to stay, find a location that has some nice amenities and great views. How wonderful would it be to gaze out on the ocean as you spend your time recovering after the procedure? Perhaps you would like to spend your time in town rather than along the shore. We can even help with the transportation to and from our clinic and the hospital.

Depending on how long you will be staying and how long your recovery time will be, you can even enjoy some sightseeing before or after getting your procedure. Of course, you always want to make sure you are fully recovered before going on any excursions. You could also opt to have a fun vacation before you get the procedure. Let’s look at just a few of the things you could do in each of these locations.

To Do in Tijuana

In Tijuana, you might want to visit places like the Tijuana Cultural Center, shop or dine along Avenida Revolucion or Plaza Santa Cecilia, or head to the interactive space museum El Trompo. There is plenty to do if you have the time before or after the procedure and recovery time.

To Do in Cozumel

Cozumel is a popular Mexican island that boasts plenty of things to see and do. You could spend time on the beach, watch the sunset, check out the ecological park, visit the Cozumel Pearl Farm, go shopping, find places to dine, and much more.

To Do in Cancun

Cancun is a place known for lively entertainment and parties, but there is a host of other things you can do when you are awaiting a procedure, and after you have recovered. You could visit some nearby ruins, go swimming in a cenote, go zip lining through the jungle, go shopping, find tasty places to dine, and enjoy a host of other activities.
