Instead of using Juvederm or Restylane Silk to pump up lips so much that they end up looking swollen, Dr. McGriff champions a more balanced approach to using fillers that’s in line with the rest of a patient’s face. This more artistic approach to treatment changes lips by analyzing a patient’s lip proportions in relation to their nose, jaw and chin by using Leonardo Da Vinci’s ideas of symmetry and timeless beauty.
This treatment was invented by English physician in Manchester, England, Tim Pearce who told The Daily Magazine that he named this treatment after Da Vinci’s golden ratio theory: “Leonardo da Vinci was one of the first people to realize that facial proportions are not arbitrary, that there is a mathematical ideal ratio and geometry for beauty, outside of which it become less attractive. This principle, otherwise known as the golden ratio, enables us to ensure that patients look more beautiful, rather than just get bigger lips that might not fit their existing facial proportions.”
This treatment approach must be tailored to each individual’s needs and proportions. Dr. McGriff calls on his twenty seven years of experience in Cosmetic and Laser surgery, choosing the optimal laser rejuvenation, resurfacing, and skin tightening in combination with topical rejuvenating growth factors, Botox and Hyaluronate lip fillers including Juvederm and Restylane Silk. His extensive experience in utilizing all of these modalities eliminate the limitations of using only a single product, in the “one size fits all” approach that other offices promote.
