Candidates for Lip Implants
Most people who get lip augmentation using implants simply have naturally thin lips. Others who consider lip enhancement have noticed that signs of aging in their lips have caused the lips to appear thin and/or wrinkled. While injectable fillers can provide beautiful lip augmentation results, not everyone wants to return for touchup treatments every few months or year. Lip implants offer a longer-lasting option so your lip enhancement results remain with you for many years to come.
Some people choose to combine lip implants with other facial surgeries, such as a face lift. Some candidates for lip augmentation may prefer fat transfer to augment their lips rather than implants or fillers.
Your Lip Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Andan offers complimentary consultations during which he’ll address any questions or concerns you might have.
To perform a lip implant procedure, Dr. Andan will make tiny incisions inside the corners of your mouth. He will then insert the implants through these incisions and close them with dissolvable sutures. Lip implants come in various sizes, so Dr. Andan would use a size that you desire and that provides the most subtle and natural look.
Lip augmentation is performed using local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the individual. Lip enhancement is an outpatient procedure, so you can return home once your procedure is completed.
Your Recovery & Results
On the first evening following your lip augmentation, you can expect a personal phone call from our office to check on how you are doing and answer any questions you may have as you begin the recovery process.
The downtime for lip enhancement procedures is fairly minimal. Most people can return to their normal routines within 1 day of their procedure. Some swelling and bruising is to be expected and you may wish to limit smiling or laughing after your lip augmentation to avoid unnecessary straining at the incision sites.
Your lips may feel slightly numb or stiff for several weeks following lip augmentation with implants. These effects should gradually resolve and you should regain normal sensation in your lips. Lip implants do not shrink, dissolve or absorb into the body, so your results should be long-lasting unless you choose to have your implants removed at a future time.
