What Is Lip Augmentation?

Creating full and sensual lips adds youthfulness and sensuality to the face. Glamour Medical specializes in non-surgical transformation of the face and lips using non-surgical procedures with fillers to augment and enhance the lips for beautiful and natural-looking lips. For select patients where fillers are not enough, Olga Nazarov, PA-C will choose a surgical lip lift procedure to create the desired shape.

What Is Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure contributing to an improved appearance of the lips and surrounding facial areas. Dermal fillers provide a minimally invasive non-surgical option for lip enhancement.

Olga uses injectable dermal fillers to smooth away fine lines around the lips (perioral lip lines), add volume to thinning lips, or reshape the lip area to achieve a certain look.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Lip Enhancement?

If you want plumper lips and a reduction in the appearance of perioral lip lines, you are an ideal candidate for dermal fillers. Before undergoing any lip-enhancement treatment, it is critical to have a positive attitude and realistic goals.

You must be in good general health and not suffer from any bleeding disorders. It is also critical that you do not have an active infection, such as oral herpes.

Your Consultation

Your consultation with Glamour Medical will involve a physical examination of your lips and the region around your mouth. It is absolutely essential to communicate with your aesthetician your medical history as well as any current medications and supplements you may be taking. If you have any known allergies to lidocaine or any past occurrences of cold sores (oral herpes), inform our team at your earliest opportunity.

The Procedure

Your lip-enhancement treatment starts with determining where the injection sites will be. These will be marked so that Olga can administer the filler injections to the target areas with precision.

Because lidocaine is included in the filler mixture, other anesthetics are no longer required in most cases. Ice packs can help numb the area before injections if you are sensitive to pain.

The markings will be erased once all of the injections have been completed. To alleviate pain, apply ice packs to the affected areas.

The treatment is relatively quick – the entire procedure should take between 10 and 30 minutes, and you will instantly notice the results.

Lip Augmentation/Lip Flip

Another way to augment your lips is with a Botox lip flip. Botox contains botulinum toxin A, a safe ingredient that temporarily paralyzes and relaxes the muscles. When Botox is injected just above the upper lip and around the corners of the mouth, the botulinum toxin will cause the muscles around the upper lip to relax. This creates a slight “flip” that helps your lips look larger and plumper since the upper lip now turns up.

Aftercare Following Lip Enhancement

You may well be able to resume your normal routine immediately following your lip treatment, with little to no downtime or recovery time needed. Though it may take a couple of hours for the fillers to settle, your lips should feel normal once settled. It is best not to use lipstick or other lip products following your injections.

FAQ

How long will lip augmentation with fillers last?

The type of dermal filler used will determine how long your lip augmentation lasts but most fillers will last 6-18 months.

What will happen to my lips if I stop getting fillers?

If you no longer like the look of your augmented lips, you can stop receiving fillers and your lips will gradually return to their natural appearance.
