Lip Augmentation

Lip Augmentation procedures are increasingly popular since the advent of social media and mobile device cameras. Patients have a number of options of temporary injectable fillers which can be used to volumize, sculpt, and accentuate the upper and lower lips. Lip augmentation with fillers may also be used to correct a deformity or improve symmetry. Some patients may benefit from a lip lift to remove the excess skin above the lift to pull up and reveal the upper lip.  During your consultation, Dr. Johnson Lee takes extra care and time to discuss your lip anatomy and your goals before personally performing each procedure. Photos and other visual materials are provided in the office and patients are encouraged to bring in photos of what they would like to achieve.

Anesthesia is provided with topical numbing cream and several of injectable fillers also contain local anesthetic.

Recovery is minimal. Patients may expect the lips to swell dramatically in the first 48 hours due to natural inflammation, however the swelling quickly resolves within 3-5 days. 

Recovery is variable but most patients can expect routine activity by 2 weeks and full strenuous activity by 4 weeks.

Results are immediate and last for several months depending on the filler used.
