Lip Enhancement (French Lip)

Lip Enhancement NYC, Injections, Implants, Fuller Lips

Are you considering lip enhancement in New York for fuller lips? There are many options for improving the appearance of your lips to make them fuller and to reduce the associated fine lines and wrinkles.. Injections or implants can enhance and improve your natural look. The upper and lower lips can be “outlined” by injecting a thin line of Restylane or Hylaform along the vermillion border and can also be made fuller with fat injections. Lip enhancement procedures are contraindicated in patients with certain diseases such as diabetes, lupus, and blood clotting problems and should also not be performed in people who have active cold sores or extensive scarring of the lips. Lip enhancement is performed using a topical anesthetic with or without a dental block.

Many people say that they are afraid to have their lips enhanced because you see so many celebrities with “bee-stung” lips. Lip enhancement can be done in such a subtle way that no one will be able to tell that your lips have been injected at all. It can offer a pretty and feminizing effect, especially in lips that have lost definition with age. For lip augmentation in New York City contact a board certified plastic surgeon.

Recovery time will depend on your lifestyle, the type and extent of the treatment and how much material is injected. Most injectable fillers have short recovery periods and you can return to work the same day or the next day. If you are having superficial injections, your recovery can take a few hours. Most people experience some swelling and redness for the first 24-48 hours. When large amounts of any substance are injected into the face, swelling may last from several days to one week. Bruising is common, but can be covered with camouflage makeup as needed. Bruising can be minimized by avoiding the use of aspirin or aspirin containing product or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Motrin, Advil or ibuprofen for seven to ten days prior to the planned injections.

There may be bruising and swelling following any dermal filler treatment. Itching and mild discomfort is not uncommon. You may develop asymmetries or irregularities that can usually be corrected with massage or additional injections.
