Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation: Getting the Lips Just Right
When we think of a movie star preparing to meet the love of her life – or our mother just getting ready to set off for a PTA meeting – there’s a good chance we remember them adjusting their lipstick. Our lips are a feature that can make a great deal of difference in the impression we make on the world.
Some of us grow up with lips that are thin and nearly disappear when we smile. Many more of us have lips that grew thinner and less full with age. Makeup can compensate only so much if we feel self conscious about the fullness or contour of our lips.
Fortunately, there are options from which to choose for enhancing our lips without surgery. Each of them is a brief procedure with limited downtime, and results are apparent right away.
Adding Volume and Shape Without Surgery
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane Silk offer lip enhancement with rapid results and little downtime. After careful consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your starting point and your goals, the procedure with an experienced clinician takes minutes, not hours. Results will be “ready for primetime” almost immediately.
Though not permanent, injectable fillers typically last from six months to a year. Compared with the other non-surgical option of fat transfer, fillers offer less downtime and more control over results.
Skill and Experience Make the Difference
Your peace of mind calls for selecting the best qualified and most experienced practice to provide your lip enhancement. Your satisfaction with results starts with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon for consultation. Because injectables call for a delicate, accurate touch, you’ll want to be sure you are in the hands of a clinician who is highly experienced in achieving natural-looking results. At Northside Plastic Surgery, we use blunt cannulas to inject the lips, resulting in less bruising and swelling.
As an award-winning practice in this field, we invite you to get in touch with us.
