Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that results in firmer, plumper, more naturally shaped lips. As we age and mature, our lips often develop a straight, somewhat strained, and thin look. This is caused by a loss of volume in the supporting tissues that lie beneath the lip skin. It can make us look stern, angry, or stressed.
Lip injections can help turn back the clock and restore the lips to their more youthful appearance. We are often asked about whether this type of procedure is safe and if it is effective for all types of lip shapes. We encourage you to contact us to find out about all of the different treatment options for thinning lips. You might be an ideal candidate for lip injections.
These are relatively safe and generally do not produce any noticeable side effects. Dermal fillers contain an acid that draws in moisture, giving the lips a more plumped appearance. The ideal candidate will have thinned lips that detract from his or her normal appearance. However, it is important to understand that lip injection won’t change your personality. We strongly advise our clients to consider that while fuller, more youthful-looking lips can help with your self-confidence, it doesn’t actually change who you are.
Lip injections are performed in our office. They can involve fillers or a fat transfer. The filler compound causes a slight plumping of the tissue that lasts for quite a long time. The natural swoop of the upper lip is restored, and the lower lip becomes fuller as well.
An entire procedure takes only about 20 minutes. The injection specialist has complete control over how much filler compound to use. Therefore, each injection is customized to bring about the most suitable results for each individual client.
Lip injections can change the appearance of your entire face. Those with thinning lips can expect a more balanced look because the size of the fuller lips is now in more even proportion with the eyes, nose, and cheeks. This is why we offer before-and-after pictures for our clients to view before making the choice to have this procedure performed.
