About Lip Augmentation
Whether you were born with slim lips or you are noticing less fullness in or width of your lips as you get older, or the corners are turning down into an RBF, lip augmentation may help create a more youthful, balanced, and well-shaped pout. Surgical lip augmentation is performed with marshmallowy soft, tapered silicone implants to create the shape you desire. Surgical lip augmentation can create beautiful results that are long-lasting. In some cases, injectable fillers can be incorporated to attain even more dramatic results. If you are interested in learning more about surgical lip augmentation, contact Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in Las Vegas, NV to schedule a private consultation. Cosmetic surgeon Edward M. Zimmerman, M.D. will discuss your options and create your personal treatment plan for lip augmentation.
- Lip Implants:
Providing the most lasting results, silicone implants may be added to the lower and/or upper lips to improve volume, proportion, and shape for both men and women.
- Add On:
Injectable dermal fillers, such as Restylane or Juvéderm, can add temporary volume to the edge and body of the lips, improve contours where the lips join the face, and decrease the visibility of fine lip lines.
Lip Augmentation Reviews
"I have used Dr Zimmermans services a few times as I'm still new with treating myself to treatments. I love the staff here and they do not treat you like a number. The Dr is the sweetest and down to earth man ever! I have to rave about getting my lips done for the first time ever. Irene the injector knew exactly what I wanted with a natural look. She explained all the healing process and made it a point to say expect alot of swelling. I woke up the next morning with very slight swelling and then I had a small bruise in one area that was it. I love my natural plump lips. Ladies be careful what you ask for because everyone is starting to look the same and at this office, they do not up sell or look crazy with over filled faces. This was the best experience! No real swelling and a slight bruise! Versa is a great filler."- M.V. / Yelp / Jan 29, 2019
Lip enhancement can give you more voluminous lips and a shapelier mouth. Based on your concerns and goals, Dr. Z will develop a unique lip augmentation treatment plan to achieve long-lasting results. Ideal candidates for lower and/or upper lip enhancement at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas:
- Have thin lips naturally or have age-related volume loss in the lips
- Have asymmetrical or uneven lips
- Want to improve the entire face
- Have general good health
For lip implants, a thin incision will be created at the corner of the lips so the implant(s) can be inserted. With this technique, scars will be well hidden and nearly impossible to notice with the naked eye as they will are located within the natural curves of the lips. Typically, this surgery only takes about 30 minutes to perform, and patients will be free to return to their daily activities afterward. It can take weeks for swelling to subside and the implant(s) to settle into position; however, implants in the lips will give you improvements that last for many years.
What to Expect
It is important to pay attention to the recovery instructions given by Dr. Z to have faster healing and the best results. After a surgical lip enhancement, your mouth will most likely feel tender or sore for several days. Cold packs and nonprescription pain relievers are suggested to address any swelling and discomfort. Lip augmentation surgery will give you long-lasting improvements; however, the natural aging process can affect your results over time. Talk to Dr. Z about how to maintain your voluminous look. In some instances, Dr. Z may recommend dermal fillers to enhance or refresh your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does lip augmentation cost?
Your cost for lip augmentation will vary based on several factors, such as your unique condition, cosmetic goals, and facility fees. In your consultation with Dr. Z, he will develop your treatment plan before discussing your costs. Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas takes several payment methods, and we can help you locate low-interest financing to make your procedure easy to afford.
Can I get the lips of a specific celebrity?
Several patients come in and request the specific lips of an actor or actress. Having pictures of lips you want will help Dr. Z understand your goals; however, it can be unrealistic to create the lips of someone else. In your first appointment, Dr. Z will listen to your wants before talking about your choices (silicone implants with the option of dermal fillers as an add-on treatment) to augment your lips. After that, he will create your personal treatment plan.
Do lip implants look fake?
Implants are made from a silicone material that is designed to feel and look natural. With his years of training, Dr. Z inserts lip implants so your outcomes will appear natural but impressive. In your initial consultation, he will go over the shape and size of lower and/or upper implants to meet your needs and goals. In 2 – 3 months, the implants will settle into place and the swelling will be gone so you may see your results.
Is lip augmentation reversible?
Typically, patients are very happy with their lip augmentation. Although, if you're not happy with your results, you may have your implants taken out. If you're uncertain about lip implants, Dr. Z might recommend dermal fillers since they're minimally invasive. For dermal fillers, the formula will eventually absorb into your body so your lips will return to their normal appearance after about 3 – 4 months or longer, depending on the type of filler used.
