About Lip Augmentation with Fillers

Lip augmentation is an increasingly popular treatment, thanks to its quick procedure and incredible results. There are many procedures today that can enhance the appearance of the lips: we choose to offer our patients lip fillers because of how simple and convenient they are. 

Lip augmentation with fillers is a minimally invasive treatment that allows men and women to improve their lips without preparation or downtime.

Injectable fillers have been around for quite a while and were originally used to return volume to the facial features of people with illness-related volume loss. Since the early 2000s, fillers have been used for soft tissue improvement. These fillers have largely consisted of collagen and have led to the development of hyaluronic acid fillers. 

Juvederm

Hyaluronic fillers, or HA, are among the best filler options today. This is largely due to the composition of the HA fillers. HA is a natural substance already found in the connective tissues of our bodies. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers do not require an allergy test and will provide a natural feel and texture to the lips.

There are a few different HA fillers available today and we offer the one that is most sought after: Juvederm.

Juvederm is FDA-approved and a great solution to thin or small lips. By improving shape and volume of your lips with Juvederm, you impact the appearance of your whole face. Many patients look into lip augmentation to improve the distance between their top lip and nose or to balance out the size of their lips. Plump, youthful lips will improve the symmetry of your face. Fillers allow our patients to enjoy the results they are looking to achieve right away!

Benefits

Lip fillers are immediate! We love Juvederm lip augmentation because it allows our patients to see the changes they want during and right after treatment.

Personal Consultation

Lip Filler Consultation

A private meeting with Dr. Hayes’s team is your first step to luscious lips. This meeting provides you the opportunity to ask questions. They will take the time to address your questions and any concerns you may have. Dr. Hayes will examine your lips and ask if you have any allergies, are taking specific medications regularly, and inquire about your medical history. This information will help him determine if Juvederm lip augmentation is a safe and healthy treatment for you.

We strive to build a relationship with all of our patients. These consultations give us a chance to get to know you and develop a treatment plan that is personalized to your desired aesthetic.

Preparation

Lip augmentation requires little to no preparation. You will want to avoid smoking and taking NSAIDs like Aspirin, Advil, and Motrin a couple weeks before and after treatment. Dr. Hayes will inform you of any other steps to take to create a positive treatment. Please call our office if you have any last-minute questions or need to reschedule.

Treatment

Your lip augmentation will take place at our state-of-the-art office.

When you arrive you will be taken back to one of our treatment rooms. Your lips will be cleaned and Dr. Hayes will begin the treatment after properly numbing the area for your comfort. Juvederm will be strategically injected into the lips. Dr. Hayes will improve the lips and make sure they have a balance between the results you want and natural features. The whole treatment will take about twenty minutes.

Recovery

Injection sites may be sensitive and red. Be careful not to scratch them or apply pressure to the sites. Swelling is common with lip injections so you will be sent home with an icing pack for quicker recovery. Injection sites should be healed within a few days and your lips will look amazing immediately!

Results

These results will last anywhere from six to twelve months. Maintenance appointments are necessary to keep your results looking great. Dr. Hayes will inform you when to look into a maintenance appointment.
