Protecting Your Lips Like A Winter Olympic Athlete

Woman After Lip Augmentation Houston TX

Are you glued to your television watching the Winter Olympics? It’s thrilling, isn’t it? Which event is your favorite to watch?

While the winter is so fun (especially when the Olympics are on) the effects of winter on your lips can be brutal. Your heat running in your house makes it dry. Windy, cold weather has adverse effects on your lips as well. Your lips have no oil glands, so when they’re exposed to these conditions they can become chapped and even cracked.

Tips for keeping your lips moist this winter.

  • Run a humidifier in your home to replace your dry air.
  • Limit lip licking. Your saliva adds to your dry lips.
  • Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.
  • Ensure that your lip balm has sunscreen in it to protect your lips from the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Avoid spicy foods if your lips are chapped or cracked. Beware: the spicy food will “bite” your lips back.

Are your lips suffering more than normal winter effects of chapping and cracking? Have they lost their volume and appeal? Dr. Harirchian is a skilled facial plastic surgeon. She offers an expansive menu of lip augmentation and lip enhancement procedures at her state-of-the-art Houston facility.

Call Sanaz Harirchian, M.D. Facial Plastic Surgery today to see how your lips can be altered in size, shape and form using both surgical and non-surgical treatments.

Facelift, eyelid surgery

I am healthy and wanted my appearance to be reflective of the way I felt inside. I am very pleased with my procedure. Very natural results. Everything was just as Dr H explained to me. When I came out of recovery, Dr H was there.

Lower eyelid surgery

My experience with Dr Harirchian has been fantastic, both in the office and during/after my surgical procedure. She is knowledgeable, caring, warm and confident. I appreciate her personal touch (calling, accessibility). I was increasingly self-conscious of my lower lid bags/dark circles. I was ready for a permanent solution after trying fillers. I am beyond thrilled with the results.

Love my new eyes. I had dark circles under my eyes which would not go away with makeup or concealer. Dr H put filler in my eyes and it worked! I love it.

Amazing rhinoplasty result!

We had a very positive experience. Dr Harirchian was professional and caring. We will be back! My daughter was having a terrible time breathing and was unhappy with the size/shape of her nose. Dr Harirchian helped her breathe and gave her the nose she always wanted.
