Lip Injections Monmouth County
When your lips begin to look thinner and pressed, you look old and very unhappy. At Lotus Health and Aesthetic Medical Institute, Dr. Singh, board-certified facial plastic surgeon, performs lip augmentation on people living in Red Bank, and the surrounding communities in Monmouth County to plump their lips giving them a softer, younger-looking smile and appearance. The goal with lip augmentation is to look subtly natural and come more in line with the other parts of the face.
What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a specialized procedure in which volume is added to thin lips to soften and reshape them and enhance the face using dermal fillers injected into the lips.
Lip augmentation can be performed using various methods such as Dermal Fillers, Fat Transfer or Lip Implants. Dr Singh performs most lip augmentation using Injectable Dermal Fillers such as Juvéderm or Restylane. Injectable fillers are the least invasive and require no downtime.
Benefits of Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation plumps the lips to create a softer smile and offers the following benefits:
- Lessens the appearance of fine lines around the mouth
- Minimal downtime
- Long-lasting results
- Improved self-image
Who is the Best Candidate for Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is ideal for anyone with naturally thin lips or lips that have begun to thin with age. Lip augmentation adds volume and softens the lips to create a brighter smile.
What Do I Do to Prepare for My Lip Augmentation?
With lip augmentation, it is very important to stop smoking as that affects the outcome of this treatment.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation at Lotus Health and Aesthetic Institute by Dr. Singh, is performed using dermal fillers. When using dermal fillers, a gel is injected into the areas of the lip to add volume. The lips may then be shaped to give them more definition. Dermal fillers create a softer feel.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation may take up to an hour using Derma Fillers.
What to Expect After Lip Augmentation
Injectable fillers are the least invasive and require no downtime. There may be some slight swelling or redness immediately following the injections, but that resolves itself within a day. Dermal fillers last several months.
Will I Have Scars from Lip Augmentation?
Lip fillers leave no scars. Lip implants may leave tiny scars as the incisions heal, but they are not very noticeable and greatly diminish or go away. If they are at all visible, they can easily be covered with makeup.
When Will I See the Results?
The results from lip augmentation are immediately visible. Any swelling, bruising or redness diminishes within a few days. With lip implants, the results take more time as the incisions must heal before swelling and bruising subside.
