iWELL Plastic Surgery’s

Paranasal Augmentation

Deep nasolabial folds, otherwise known as laugh lines, can be addressed by paranasal augmentation, which involves filling the depression with an implant or autologous fat to volumize the area. When the area around the mouth becomes volumized, people tend to look more youthful and refined, and this is why it is commonly called the “nobility surgery” in Korea. When those deep nasolabial folds are gone, you will look more radiant and youthful, and if you have a protruding mouth, it will look less obvious.
