Over the generations, there have been so many different ways that society has defined beauty. The clothing, cosmetics, and hairstyles that today’s woman wears are definitely a lot different from what their mothers and grandmothers wore. And when it comes to the ideal body, there really aren’t any standards. But one thing that has always been in style (and always will be) is a pair of full, kissable lips!
The good news is that if you weren’t born with the lips that you want, you can change them! Lip augmentation is an easy and relatively painless procedure that is typically performed on an outpatient basis. In fact, most instances of lip cosmetic surgery are limited to a few simple injections that can be done in minutes. Our team of specialists at The Plastic Surgery Institute has performed the procedure hundreds of times with great success, and we’ll be happy to schedule a consultation with you to discuss your options.
Outpatient lip enlargement is achieved by injections of either Restylane or Juvederm, which are both slightly modified hyaluronic acid, a natural product of the body that provides volume and fullness to the skin. When you schedule your procedure, Restylane or Juvederm will be injected into the skin in small amounts by an ultra fine needle, and you will begin to see results in a matter of days. Most patients enjoy results that last for about 4-6 months before an additional treatment is necessary.
If you’re worried about pain during the procedure, you’re not alone! But you can take comfort in the knowledge that we perform an individual pain assessment with each patient prior to the procedure, and develop a plan to manage pain and decrease discomfort during injection.
If you’re unhappy with the size and shape of your lips, you don’t have to suffer any longer. The procedure is safe and quick, and we’ll make sure that every question that you have is answered before we schedule you for the procedure.
