If you want to add a little shape to your lips, then consider lip augmentation. This is a simple procedure that will give you the plump appearance that you desire in a short time. It can be performed in our office, which means that your day doesn’t need to be disturbed aside from the time spent at your appointment.
Before you get the plump look for your lips through an augmentation process, you need to know what kind of filler you want to get. A temporary filler will only last for a short time and might not give you the results that you want. However, a permanent implant is reversible as well, although the process is more complicated. If you’re unsure of how plump you want your lips to be, then a temporary filler would be the best option.
The technique that is used will often determine the size of your lips and how well the filler stays in place. Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used during lip augmentations. This is a substance that is already found in your body, making it a good option for enhancing the appearance of your lips. When you have lip augmentation performed, you’ll get the shape and structure that you desire, which is beneficial if you have thin lips or those that are of an uneven size. If you’re getting temporary fillers, you can expect the results to last about six months. During this time, if you are completely satisfied with the way your lips look, you may decide to opt for a lip implant. There’s not a lot of bruising with the procedure, and you can usually go back to doing what you want the same day.
When you arrive at the office, you’re greeted by a nurse who will take you to a room where the procedure will be completed. The filler is slowly injected to the fullness that you discussed with your doctor beforehand. To be on the safe side, we usually inject a small amount of filler at each appointment until your lips are where you want them to be. This helps us avoid overfilling your lips. You can usually put ice on the area to keep any swelling to a minimum. A follow-up appointment is usually made so our doctor can ensure the lip augmentation is successful.
