The Cutis Lip

Where the dreaded fish lips are concerned, the problem lies entirely in the experience, knowledge and expertise of the practitioner. At Cutis Cosmetic and Laser Centre, we specialize in what we call the ‘Cutis Lip’ – a beautifully full yet natural-looking lip enhancement.

What is the Cutis Lip?


An in-depth understanding of facial anatomy, embryology, physiology and principles of facial proportion and beauty are the pillars of cosmetic treatments at Cutis Cosmetic and Laser Centre. The outcomes of our dermal filler lip augmentations (such as JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® treatments) are the result of both a detailed knowledge of the embryologic structures (the anatomical parts that form in the early stages of development), which form the lips, an understanding of the anatomic spaces in the lips and knowledge of ideal proportion. These considerations help us optimize our lip enhancement treatments and allow us to tailor our treatments to suit each patient’s unique features.

Working with these anatomic subunits and positions allows optimal placement of the dermal filler product for a lip that looks enhanced and natural with proper form. This is what defines the Cutis Lip. Compare it to lip augmentation that fails to respect the natural form and structures of the lip and the result is often large without natural definition – e.g. fish lips.

Beautiful lips can be achieved when these principles of facial symmetry are applied. We look forward to applying our expertise to enhance your smile and create lips that turn heads for all the right reasons. Contact us to request an appointment.
