Have you spent hundreds of dollars on lip liners, glosses, and lipsticks to try and make your lips look larger and plumper? If so, you could ditch this losing battle and make your lips plumper with lip augmentation.
How Lip Augmentation Works
The dermal fillers injected into the lips are made with hyaluronic acid. They add volume, shape, and structure. Whether you have very thin lips, or they are almost flush with your face in profile, these fillers create a natural-looking set of lips. Before hyaluronic acid fillers became popular, fat was used to augment lips. However, hyaluronic acid fillers are more easily controlled and provide better results.
Using a dermal filler, the doctor has control over how much volume is being added to your lips. The amount injected is easily controlled, so the results can be viewed before more is added. Because of this, you won’t get the exact results you want in one appointment. Instead, the doctor will spread the appointments out, so the shape and volume change gradually. This allows for better adjustments if needed.
During the Procedure
Injectable lip augmentation can be done in a quick visit to our office and requires virtually no recovery time. The doctor will put a topical numbing cream on your face to lessen any discomfort. Then, the areas that need to be injected will be marked. You will probably not want to eat or drink immediately after the procedure.
Are You a Good Candidate for Lip Augmentation?
Obviously, this is not a good procedure for you if you do not want to change your appearance. This should be something you want to do for you, not anyone else in your life. You should be in good health and not have any chronic conditions that could slow or delay healing.
How Long Does Lip Augmentation Last?
In regards to lip augmentation using hyaluronic acid fillers, the amount of time they last is based on the brand used. Some can last three to six months while others can last upwards of a year before you need a touch-up procedure done.
