The lips play an important role in our facial appearance. However, due to aging and exposure to the sun, lips can become thin and wrinkles can start appearing in the facial areas surrounding them. Lip augmentation is a simple procedure that can rectify most typical issues with the lips, restoring their natural beauty and youthfulness.
Lip augmentation can plump thin lips and increase the shallow contours. The procedure also reduces the thin, fine wrinkles in and around the lips that make smiles look old.
At UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center, our lip augmentation treatment will help you enjoy the look of your lips again. We first perform a thorough examination to understand the problems that need to be rectified, and to gauge your expectations. Then our surgeons decide on which fillers are right for the job, or if Botox offers a better option.
Following your procedure, the results are often noticeable immediately, though they will fully show themselves in a couple days.
The procedure is very simple, lasting only a few minutes. A local anesthetic is usually given to ensure that the patient feels no pain throughout the procedure. There might be some mild initial swelling but it will subside in a day or two.
Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Results last for 3-4 months.
