What to Expect in a Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Malone in La Jolla, you will be able to ask many questions and share your concerns about a procedure. What do you desire to get done?

When we smile, we communicate with another person. The expressions we use with our lips transmit how we feel, our emotions. Over the years, our lips can also age us and make us look older than we really are. For example, our lips thin out because we lose production of collagen that gives volume to our lips.
Collagen production slows down as you age turning your once-voluminous lips thin and flat. There are also the lip lines that show up as part of aging after years of conversation, eating and smiling.
Lip lines are vertical wrinkles that form around the mouth. Other aging factors include dryness and flaking from sun and weather damage and cracking of the lips. There are various solutions available from Dr. Malone to give you natural, plump lips through a customized plan that will be tailored to your facial proportions.
