Lip augmentation has become a very popular procedure in recent years, corresponding with the rise in popularity of dermal fillers. Candidates for the procedure include younger patients who desire fuller and more voluptuous lips, as well as plastic surgery patients who want to restore the volume and shape that has been lost with age. Lip augmentation can have effects beyond the lips themselves, and make the face look younger, softer and more appealing.
Lip augmentation can be done safely in the office under topical or local anesthesia. Dr. Horowitz commonly uses Juvederm™ to enhance the lips. The results of soft tissue augmentation using injectable fillers are apparent immediately.
Immediately after treatment, you may experience some mild swelling or bruising, or a slightly “over-filled” appearance to treated areas. With topical icing, these conditions will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. The results of lip augmentation can last as long as 3-6 months.
Permanent Lip Augmentation with Implants
If you love the look of your just-injected lips but are looking for a permanent solution, lip implants may be right for you. Soft silicone lip implants come in multiple sizes so patients can choose their desired look - anything from a subtle to a bold enhancement. Lip implants can be inserted under local anesthesia.
