Lip fillers or lip enhancement uses dermal filler injections of Beletero®, Prevelle Silk®, Restylane® and Juvederm® for lip enlargement. Lip fillers make the lip look fuller, younger and more sensuous and lift the lip.
Full lips have the appearance of youth and sensuality. As we age our lips become thinner and longer and the pink part of the lip turns inward. Lip lines and wrinkles appear. People choose to have lip enhancement or augmentation to:
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers Beletero®, Prevelle Silk®, Restylane® and Juvederm® are safe when done by a board certified experienced plastic surgeon who has had training.
Lip augmentation with dermal filler injection costs $500-$750 depending on the filler that is used.
You should see the nice puffing or plumping of the lip immediately after. Rarely there may be bruising. The lip swells so that the lips may look too large but icing and time will reduce the swelling after a day or two.
A board-certified trained plastic surgeon who is experienced in dermal filler techniques should do your lip augmentation.
Effective lip line or lip wrinkle removal requires a combination of techniques. The best lip enhancement technique to remove lip lines, plump the lip and lift the lip include:
A lip lift is a plastic surgery procedure to shorten, elevate and lift the lip. The purpose is to make the lip look shorter and younger with more pink lip exposed. The problem with lip lift plastic surgery is that the scar is very visible beneath the nose. In my practice the scar is unacceptable and we achieve adequate lip lift with the use of dermal filler lip injections or lip augmentation.
Lip implants are biocompatible, permanent materials surgically placed into the lip for lip augmentation or enhancement. Common materials include Bioplastique® and Gore-Tex®. Because the lips have strong muscles and remove frequently non-biological implant materials are not well tolerated in the lips. Lip implants can extrude or become exposed in some patients. Dermal filers have replaced the lip lift in our practice.
