In today’s society, full lips are a desirable facial feature. Some people have thin lips naturally, whereas others lose volume in their lips as a result of aging. Lip enhancement, also referred to as lip augmentation, can help women experience fuller lips by using an injectable filler.
At the Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, we strive to provide you with a simple yet fulfilling experience. To learn more about lip enhancement please request a complimentary consultation online, or call our office at 813-975-3223. We look forward to helping you improve your appearance and your confidence.
Many people may equate lip enhancement with looking over-done or unnatural, but this doesn’t need to be the case. Volume can be added to the lips to treat lip lines without necessarily making the lips look bigger at all. For those who want fuller lips, our Injector will consult with you first to see how much augmentation is desired and make sure that your expectations are realistic.
Lip Enhancement Procedure
Lip enhancement with an injectable filler such as JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® or Restylane® can be performed with a local or topical anesthetic. Currently, local anesthetics are mixed with or integrated into the injectable filler to aid in patient comfort. Lip enhancement takes about 20 to 30 minutes to perform. All patients receive treatment in our Tampa state-of-the-art, fully accredited facility. We will explain to you which filler may be best for your particular goals. We will also let you periodically monitor your results during the injection process by looking into a mirror to make sure you are getting what you want. As always, we strive to accomplish the results you desire while maintaining a natural look.
After your lip enhancement, you may experience slight bruising and swelling. However, this will go away within a few days. After the procedure, many of our patients enjoy returning to their normal, everyday activities as the treatment is non-surgical and requires no downtime.
