    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.

    Lip Filler Options in Houston

    Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that provides hydration and plumpness to the skin. When injected into the lips, these fillers can effectively increase lip volume, define lip borders, and improve lip contours. They offer a customizable solution, allowing for subtle enhancements or more noticeable transformations.
    JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA
    A soft filler formulated specifically for lip augmentation and the correction of perioral lines, or “lipstick lines.” Its flexible consistency offers a natural outcome without appearing excessively volumized. Its results will last from 4 to 6 months.
    Juvéderm Vollure
    Its unique Vycross® technology is used to enhance lip shape and redefine lip borders. Gives predictable and precise results that can last up to 18 months.
    Juvéderm Ultra & Juvéderm Ultra Plus
    Provide either subtle or dramatic results that are pillowy and feel natural to the touch last 6 to 9 months.
    Gently plumps and smooths the lips. After treatment, Restylane draws moisture from nearby tissues and stimulates collagen production, molding thin lips, minimizing smoker’s lines, and delivering results that remain noticeable for up to six months.
    Each of these options has its own set of benefits and potential risks, so it is important to discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations with Dr. Vitenas during your consultation.

    The Lip Augmentation Procedure

    The lip augmentation procedure is performed in a private treatment room at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery. It is a relatively simple and quick process that can be completed in less than thirty minutes. Here’s a general overview of what to expect:
    Consultation
    The first step is a consultation with Dr. Vitenas. During this meeting, he will assess your lips, discuss your goals for the procedure, and develop a customized treatment plan that aligns with your cosmetic needs and expectations.
    Prior to the procedure, a local or topical anesthetic is applied to the lips to ensure a comfortable and pain-free treatment.
    Dermal fillers are carefully injected into specific areas of the lips to add volume and shape.
    Once the desired results are achieved, the procedure is complete. You will be able to see the results immediately.

    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

    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.
