Restore a Youthful Appearance With Lip Augmentation

closeup of woman's mouthLip augmentation performed at our Manhattan office uses injectable dermal fillers or fat grafting to restore lost volume and definition while softening natural aging lines. As we age, the lips tend to lose volume, and the coveted "Cupid's bow" shape subsides. Fortunately, lip augmentation makes it possible to rejuvenate the lips with minimal discomfort and downtime. To learn more about how lip augmentation can help you achieve a youthful and alluring look, schedule a consultation with Dr. Craig Foster.

Candidates for Lip Augmentation

Those who wish to increase or restore fullness in their lips, or minimize the appearance of wrinkles around the lips, often make good lip augmentation candidates. The best results are achieved when patients are physically healthy and do not smoke. It is important for anyone considering this treatment to have realistic expectations about the process and end results.

What to Expect

During a consultation, Dr. Foster will evaluate your lips and natural skin tones to determine the best type of treatment to help you achieve your desired results. Local anesthetic may be used to numb the treatment site to alleviate any discomfort. Lip augmentation requires multiple injections to distribute the filler evenly and create a full appearance. An improved look will be noticeable almost immediately, though some minor swelling and bruising at the injection site may appear temporarily. In some cases, the lips will appear to be over filled, but this will resolve on its own within a few hours to a few days, depending on what type of filler is used and other factors. Many patients who have undergone lip augmentation experience satisfying results that complement their features and boost their confidence. Complications are rare. The results are not permanent, but patients can choose to undergo subsequent treatments to maintain their plump, full lips.
