F or patients, lip enhancement can completely change the appearance of the face and is a popular non-surgical procedure.
In skilled hands, lip enhancement can provide natural-looking, full lips with well-defined contours (and will avoid the dreaded “duck-lips” often seen in the tabloids).
There are a variety of options available for lip enhancement, which include injectable fillers (Juvederm or Restylane), fat injections, or lip implants.
After your consultation, Dr. Hall can help you choose which option is right for you.
Lip enhancement procedures usually take around 30 minutes and are performed under local anesthesia in the office. For lip enhancement with injectable fillers, once the area is numbed, the filler is precisely placed with an ultra-fine needle in the areas requiring augmentation.
Lip enhancement with fat injections or implants is performed under intravenous sedation (“twilight sleep”) and local anesthesia in Dr. Hall’s operating room, and usually takes approximately one hour.
The effects of lip enhancement with injectable fillers usually last between 6 and 9 months before re-treatment is necessary to maintain the results.
Lip enhancement with either fat injections or lip implants is a permanent solution to volume loss of the lips.
You will see the results of injectable lip enhancement immediately after injection, however some temporary swelling and redness of the treated areas is common for the first day or two after the procedure. Occasionally, minor bruising occurs but usually disappears in a few days. Swelling and bruising is more prominent with fat injections or implants than with fillers and may last up to two weeks in these instances. The swelling and bruising from any lip enhancement procedure can be minimized by avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen, or diet supplements containing fish oil or vitamin E for the week before your procedure.
