How We Do It
Full lips are a hallmark of youth, beauty, and overall appeal. Lip size is largely an inherited trait with some born with full lips and others inheriting smaller, thinner lips. Unfortunately, everyone loses volume and definition of the lips as they age.
How Is A Lip Augmentation Performed?
Lip augmentation is most commonly performed using a local or topical anesthetic depending on patient preference. A small needle is inserted directly into the lips for and the filler material is placed in appropriate locations. Some benefits of this procedure are:
- Restores volume lost with age
- Enhances smaller, thinner lips
- Multiple options for treatment
- Minimal down time
