Lip augmentation is a non-invasive procedure in which a filler is injected into the lip to restore shape, volume and contour of the lip.  Enhancing the lips can have a huge impact on the overall youthful rejuvenation of the entire face.

WHAT CAUSES LIP AGING?

Unfortunately as one ages our lip becomes thin, dry and wrinkled.  With time the upper lip lengthens and lines and furrows develop around the lips and at the corners of the mouth.  Genetics, smoking and sun exposure contribute greatly to the aging of the lips.

WHAT IS THE PERFECT LIP?

The ideal lip is smooth, soft, plump and symmetrical.  The volume and size is greater in the middle of the lip and tapers toward the corners.  The lower lip is slightly fuller than the upper lip.

ARE THERE PRECAUTIONS PRIOR TO LIP AUGMENTATION?

Healthy individuals not taking blood thinners or medications that decrease one's immunity are good candidates for lip enhancement.  Patients with severe allergies, a history of keloid scar formation and patients currently breastfeeding cannot undergo this procedure.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF LIP AUGMENTATION WITH FILLERS?

Potential risks with the injection of hyaluronic acid fillers include bruising, swelling, pain and infection.  With proper injection technique and adhering to a proper post operative wound care regimen greatly minimizes the above side effects.

HOW LONG DOES LIP AUGMENTATION LAST?

As with all hyaluronic acid fillers, the cosmetic results last between 8 to 12 months.  If you have any questions or desire treatment, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Greene.
