What is Lip Augmentation?
As we age, the production of collagen in the body decreases, and it is common for the lips to flatten and lose their youthful contour. In addition to the natural effects of aging, repeated facial expressions, environmental exposure, sipping through straws, or smoking can collectively contribute to the development of vertical fine lines on the lips, which can give the appearance of aging.
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of the lips through injectable dermal fillers. This treatment adds volume, definition, and symmetry to the lips for a more youthful look. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery in Houston is pleased to bring its patients effective non-surgical lip augmentation options. Patients appreciate the instant improvement this non-surgical treatment provides.

The Lip Augmentation Procedure
Recovery from Lip Augmentation
After the lip augmentation procedure, patients can expect a relatively quick and easy recovery. There is minimal downtime, and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
In the first 24-48 hours post-procedure, patients may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are normal and should subside within a few days. Applying a cold compress to the lips can help reduce swelling.
It is best to avoid strenuous physical activity for the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure to minimize swelling and bruising.
Patients should also keep their lips moisturized to promote healing and enhance the results of the procedure.
The longevity of the results varies depending on the type of filler used and the individual patient’s needs, but typically, the results of lip augmentation can last from six to nine months or even more than a year. Repeat sessions can be scheduled as the results begin to fade, ensuring the benefits continue to look beautiful for months to come
Lip Augmentation Results
The results of lip augmentation are typically noticeable immediately following the procedure. Patients can expect to see an increase in lip volume, improved lip symmetry, and a more defined lip shape. The lips will appear fuller and more youthful, and any fine lines or wrinkles around the mouth area may be diminished.
The longevity of the results can vary depending on the type of filler used and the individual patient’s body. However, the results of lip augmentation typically last from six months to over a year. As the results begin to fade, repeat sessions can be scheduled to maintain the desired look. It’s important to remember that individual results may vary and maintaining realistic expectations is key to satisfaction with the procedure.
