Fuller Lips: Making Sense of Lip Augmentation
JUVÉDERM and RESTYLANE products are popular among our San Ramon-area patients because they’re pre-formulated with lidocaine. The addition of this popular and safe anesthetic makes injections much more comfortable. Most patients liken it to a quick pinch.
The Treatment Session
Before undergoing lip augmentation, it is critical to consult with a certified and experienced healthcare expert. You will discuss your goals, options, and potential dangers during this consultation. The treatment itself will have you in and out of the office within 30 minutes, with instant results you can enjoy for months!
The length of recovery varies on the method used. There is little downtime with fillers, and you may usually resume normal activities right away. Bruising and swelling may last up to 2 weeks for some patients. Swelling and recovery time may be longer after surgical treatments.
Fillers produce rapid results, but they may take a few days to settle. Fat transfer and surgical techniques may take longer to provide obvious effects. Fillers are only temporary and require touch-up treatments on a regular basis to maintain the desired appearance. Surgical procedures typically are more permanent.
Lip augmentation, like any other cosmetic treatment, has risks such as infection, bruising, edema, and inconsistent results. Choosing a qualified practitioner and discussing potential issues during your appointment are critical.
