How Lip Enhancement Works

Lip enhancement is done via a number of methods. Lip augmentation procedures can include fat transfers, as well as hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers like Juvederm Ultra® and Belotero®. These substances are steadily and safely absorbed by the body, so a touch-up treatment now and again will be required to retain your full-lipped appearance. Here at Midwest Plastic Surgery we offer a range of lip enhancement options and can help you find the one that is just right for you and your needs.

Why We Need Lip Enhancements

When we age, the cells of the body break down and we see the effects with wrinkled droopy skin, thin discolored patches on the skin, and the fine delicate skin of the lips is the first place to show the effects. These fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

  • Shape
  • Structure
  • Volume

The effects of most lip enhancement treatments typically last around four to six months. After that more injections can be given at a set frequency to ensure the results are maintained. The frequency of follow up injections will be determined after the initial session is completed.

Benefits of Our Injection Fillers

The benefits of these fillers we provide are varied and amazing and can include:

  • Control over lip volume.You have more control over how full and plump your lips will be.
  • Gradual pace of treatment.Starting slow and building until you reach the level you want.
  • Bumps dissolve easily.Any pockets of injection fluid will quickly dissipate.
  • Less bruising.There often is less bruising with our approach than with other injections.
  • Reasonably lasting results. You can enjoy months of great looking lips between treatments.

Is Lip Enhancement and Augmentation Right for Me?

“To answer this question, you must first ask yourself why you want to modify your lips. You should not undergo this procedure unless you truly want to modify your appearance. If you are considering lip augmentation to make someone else happy or to try to fit an ideal image, you may want to think twice. Also, it’s important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Enhanced lips may make your lips plumper and fuller, but you will still be you when you walk out of the doctor’s office” (WebMD). Dr. Kouris and his team will sit down and talk with you in great detail about what these treatmetns can and cannot achieve and will work to ensure your expectations and motives are in the right place so you are not setting yourself up for disappointment in the end. They will answer any questions you may have about our lip enhancement options and will work with you to ensure you have the best possible experience! Our goal always is to help you get the results you want and need in the most effective way possible.
