Fuller Lips with Augmentation Procedures
Lip augmentation can be divided into two types of injections: structure injections and volume injections. A structure injection adds shape to the edges of the lip while a volume injection provides more size to the entire lip. Using the hyaluronic acid dermal filler Restylane, our physicians at Premier Image can give you the full, youthful lips that you want.
At Premier Image, Restylane is the dermal filler used most often for lips. Restylane is a non-animal, clear gel that is made with hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the body. Injections usually last up to a year or longer. Some swelling, redness, and tenderness may occur immediately after treatment but normally only lasts a few days.
Lip augmentation is a specific procedure that is unique to every patient. From a consultation, our board certified doctors (Dr. Louis DeJoseph or Dr. Marc Klein) will build a custom plan that is tailored to your specific needs.
The lips are one of the most beautiful features of the human face. They provide expression to the face, they are an essential portion of the face and augmenting them or changing the appearance of them can have an incredible effect on the face.
Lip augmentation sometimes gets a bad rap. We’ve all been to the supermarket or the mall and see people walking around who obviously had their lips overfilled. This tends to scare a lot of people. The reality of it is this does not have to be the case. The lips can be injected in many different ways.
Let’s break it down to a couple of different things. One is that people need a structure injection, where they need a little shape along the edges of the lip. Then there’s the second portion, a volume injection where someone needs more size to the lip. Then there’s the combination of both, where we need more structure to the lip and more size to the lip.
Restylane is the dermal filler that we most often use for the lips. Restylane is a non-animal, clear gel that is reported to be very close to the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the body. Injections usually last up to a year or longer. Some swelling, redness, and tenderness may occur immediately after treatment but normally only lasts a few days.
When one thinks about a beautiful lip on a face it should not be the first thing that you see when a person is walking toward you. The lips should be subtle to fit your face. So, not everyone needs to have those huge “duck lips”. At Premier Image we take lip augmentation on a patient by patient basis and analyze what is right for the individual along with listening and understanding what each one would like their lips to look like. We also want to make sure it is going to fit your face. We build a plan that is customized for you so that the end results are having the lips you always wanted.
