What is Lip Augmentation?
The process for lip augmentation is fairly simple, and many patients opt for this procedure alone or in conjunction with another procedure.
Benefits of Lip Augmentation
Patients choose to have a lip augmentation procedure done for a number of different reasons. The procedure helps give patients robust and beautiful lips that they have always desired. Lip augmentation has the following benefits:
- Rejuvenates your lips
- Is a fast procedure
- Requires little downtime
- Improves fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth
- Improves the look of your lips
How is Lip Augmentation Performed?
Lip augmentation works a couple of different ways. Depending on your needs and the preference of your plastic surgeon, lip augmentation can be performed with a facial filler, fat transfer, or lip implants. The most common procedure is the use of a facial filler, and during this procedure, an injection of a solution will be placed into your lips.
Preparing for Your Lip Augmentation ProcedureTo prepare for your procedure, you will be given instructions by your plastic surgeon and you need to follow these directions. The process is quick, and you can be out of the office in as little as under an hour. It is important to note that injectable facial fillers do not last forever, and many people who choose to have lip augmentation performed must follow up with more procedures to maintain the look of their lips.
Lip Augmentation RecoveryMost lip augmentation procedures do not require any downtime, and you can go right back to your normal activities. It is not uncommon for your lips to be tender or appear swollen for a couple of days after the procedure.
How Much Does a Lip Augmentation Cost?
The cost of lip augmentation will vary based on several factors, so the price is not the same for all patients. We are happy to discuss all financing options with you when you come in for your initial consultation with us.
Is Lip Augmentation Right for Me?
