Full, luscious lips are at the top of many of our personal wish lists. Unfortunately, genetics aren’t always so generous, and age often brings with it a loss of lip volume. For women wanting to enhance the appearance of their lips with natural-looking fullness and definition, we recommend our non-surgical lip augmentation treatment.
We see lip augmentation as a way to achieve fuller, well-shaped lips while still maintaining a natural look. Oftentimes we see lips that are overdone, and this could sometimes be discouraging to those who are looking for a more subtle improvement. At our Colorado plastic surgery practice, Dr. Duncan and her aesthetics team strive to provide each patient with results that are personalized to their unique goals and desired outcome.
This treatment is performed in-office and requires no surgery or anesthesia. Our lip enhancement treatment utilizes injectable gel fillers to restore or increase lip volume. The number of syringes required and the specific type of filler will be determined during your consultation with either Dr. Duncan or with one of our nurse practitioners. The Juvéderm® hyaluronic acid based filler is one of the most popular options for lip enhancement. Dr. Duncan also offers patients fat grafting for lip enhancement, which provides longer-lasting results than fillers.
During your lip enhancement treatment, the gel filler will be injected directly into the lips to plump and shape them from the inside out. Your treatment will be personalized to achieve the appearance you desire for your lips, including their shape, size, and projection. After a quick 30-minute treatment, you will be able to see immediate results. Your lips may be slightly fuller than expected at first, and you may experience some minor redness or bruising, but over the next few days, they will settle into the luscious, natural-looking lips you want.
Depending on your personal treatment and the filler used for your lip enhancement, results can be seen for up to a full year. When they start to lose their shape or fullness again, simply come back for a quick touch-up to maintain the look of your new, lovely lips.
