The Value of Shapely, Plump Lips

Shapely, plump lips have long been considered a symbol of beauty and sensuality. However, as we age, our lips lose volume, become thinner, and develop fine lines, making us appear older than we feel. A desirable lip shape involves a well-defined cupid’s bow, balanced proportions, and a gentle curve along the lower lip. We use advanced dermal fillers to sculpt your lips into the appropriate shape to frame your face, helping you elevate your natural aesthetic assets.

Lip Augmentation: An Overview

Lip augmentation enhances the size, shape, and overall appearance of the lips using dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane. These dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that attracts and retains moisture. When injected into the lips, they add volume and definition, effectively addressing thin lips or signs of aging. Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers is a safe and temporary solution to achieve fuller, more youthful lips, with results typically lasting several months.

Lip Augmentation FAQs

Is lip augmentation with fillers painful?

Most patients report mild discomfort during lip augmentation because we use extremely fine needles, and most fillers contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). Furthermore, topical numbing creams can be applied before the procedure to ensure a comfortable experience.

How long do the results of lip augmentation last?

The longevity of results varies but typically ranges from 6 to 12 months. Factors such as the type of filler used and one’s individual metabolism affect how long the effects last.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with lip augmentation?

Side effects like mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site are common but usually subside within a few days. Complications like vascular occlusion or allergic reactions are extremely rare.

Can I choose the level of lip enhancement I want?

Yes, lip augmentation is highly customizable. You can work with your provider to achieve your desired level of fullness and shape, from subtle definition to reduce fine lines to a more sculpted look.

Is there downtime after lip augmentation?

There may be some swelling and bruising after the procedure, but it typically resolves within a week. You can usually resume your normal activities immediately, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for one day after the treatment.
