Dr. Kulak is a board-certified oculofacial surgeon specializing in lip augmentation, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, and many more procedures.
A common complaint of our patients is that their lips are just too thin. This can be caused by genetics or other factors such as smoking, aging, and even sun damage. Deflated-looking lips can make you look older than you are and can make you self-conscious about your appearance. Thin lips can also be a thing of the past with lip augmentation.
Lip Augmentation can alter the appearance of your lips and make them appear fuller, giving you a more youthful appearance. Some standard options for lip enhancement can include:
Temporary lip fillers
Semi-Permanent Lip Fillers
Permanent Lip Fillers
Lip Augmentation is the procedure that gives you fuller and plumper lips. It is common for doctors to insert a dermal filler to make this happen. Many types of fillers can be used, but the most common types are hyaluronic acid products. This is a natural substance that is found in your body and can help increase volume in your lips.
These types of fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:
The effects typically last around d 6 months for most patients; after that, you would need more injections to keep up the appearance.
Once the filler is injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips. Several benefits of using this type of filler include:
control over lip volume
gradual pace of treatment
bumps dissolve easy
reasonable lasting results
minimal allergic reactions
If you are looking at getting lip injections, you may be wondering what to expect. These procedures are performed rather quickly in the office with little or even no downtime.
Before the injection, the doctor will apply a topical or local numbing agent to ease discomfort. Then the area is carefully marked where the injections should be placed. Next, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips. Following injection, you may be given ice to ease the discomfort and help with swelling.
There are some severe and minor risks associated with these procedures, including:
Bleeding at the injection site
Lumps and irregularities in lips
Please discuss all side effects with your doctor before you decide what procedure is correct for you.
