Lip Augmentation Q & A

What is lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation is the process of using dermal fillers to alter the shape and fullness of your lips. Like all dermal fillers, lip augmentation should only be done by a highly skilled and experienced medical professional. 

You can get lip augmentation from a number of sources, and prices vary widely. However, injecting dermal fillers anywhere in your face or body is a serious treatment that should only be done by professionals with a comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy. 

There is also the question of whether the filler materials used are of the highest quality. Any substance injected into your body should be formulated by a professional lab under the highest safety and quality standards. 

Having injectables performed in a salon or someone’s home can be disappointing and potentially cause serious harm. The team at The Beauty Medics understands how to perform lip augmentation that is beautiful and natural-looking.  

What happens during and after lip augmentation?

Your consultation focuses on the results you hope to achieve with lip augmentation. This enables Dr. Bokhari to select the dermal filler formulation best aligned with your needs. 

When you arrive for your visit, Dr. Bokhari may apply a topical numbing cream to reduce the sensation in and around your lips. He may create marks to guide the injection placement. He  injects the filler in several areas, carefully distributing the filler material to create an even result. 

Fillers increase the overall volume of your lips and can also be used to create a more defined lip line, which can highlight the contouring of your mouth and smile. Some people use lip augmentation to restore their lips to the size they once were, while others want to address issues with asymmetry or generally small and poorly defined lips. 

How long do the results of lip augmentation last?

Most lip fillers last around a year to 18 months. Your results will depend on your age, overall health, and metabolic function. In general, young people have faster metabolisms than older people, so lip fillers won’t last as long in your 20s as they might in your 40s. 

During your consultation, you can ask questions about the recovery process and how long your results will last. Dr. Bokhari ensures you have all the details you need to make an informed decision about your care.
