What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is used to enhance lips that have either thinned due to age or are naturally thin. The results are fuller, plumper lips that look completely natural. There are many different lip fillers used in lip augmentation procedures today. Collagen lip injection is the most familiar method, but hyaluronic acid fillers are rising in popularity. Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are viable options for lip enhancement.
How Does Lip Augmentation Work?
The lip enhancement procedure typically lasts around thirty minutes, and often requires little to no down time. Injections are made using ultra-thin needles with a local anesthetic which helps patients feel comfortable during their treatment session as well as eliminates some of the pain. Following surgery there may be some swelling at first but luckily it dissipates quickly leaving behind incredible results that last anywhere between three and twelve months.
Who is a Candidate for Lip Augmentation?
Before your procedure our doctors will review your medical history before proceeding with lip augmentation treatment to ensure that you are healthy and safe for the procedure. A candidate's first step in securing a spot on his/her favorite doctor’s calendar must be an appointment to dicuss whether or not he/she has any pre-existing conditions which would make them less likely candidates, such as cold sores, scarring from previous surgeries involving teeth removal (eccentricities), active disease like lupus etc.,
