Full, luscious lips are every person’s dream. Unfortunately, most of us experience thinning lips as we age and mature. This can be caused by a decrease in moisture retention and a thinning and stretching of the skin around the perimeter of the mouth. Before we know it, our lips are misshapen in a way that makes us look stern, unhappy and older than we feel. Others may have never had the volume they wanted in their lips. For those who want to add more volume to their lips, there’s good news. Lip augmentation using filler injections can help give lips a more youthful appearance. Fuller, plumper lips can be achieved without the need for surgery. We encourage you to learn more about how simple injection treatments can give you the look you’ve always wanted.
Types Of Lip Injections
At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a few different types of lip injections. Some injections use collagen, while others involve a fat transfer from donor areas on the body. In some cases, lip augmentation can even be performed with your own tissue.
Each method of lip injections comes with their own benefits, and Dr. Sumida help you determine with one is right for you during your consultation. Collagen injections can give long-lasting results; some patients notice that their results last for up to a year. Fat transfers, when done multiple times, can enhance your lips permanently.
During Your Consultation
We will examine the lips closely to determine the suitable injection sites. During your consultation, you can also discuss your areas of concern and your aesthetic goals. Lip injections aren’t just for patients who have lost volume in their lips over time. Other good candidates include those who were born with thin lips, are self-conscious about the size of their lips or have asymmetrical lips that throw off the balance of their face.
Lip injections are a simple procedure; they require no anesthesia and little to do downtime. This lunchtime procedure can be performed quickly, and you may notice your lips begin to plump before you even leave the office. Depending on how much volume you wish to achieve and which type of injections you receive, we may schedule several treatment sessions over the course of several weeks to give you the best results.
Advantages Of Filler Injections
Lip injections come with many advantages. They can give you natural-looking, fuller lips without the need for surgery. Injections can also be repeated as often as desired, making your lips continuously plump and voluminous. The injections you receive can also be customized depending on the results you would like to see.
