What is Lip Augmentation?
The lips are often revered as one of the most attractive parts of the body. Feminine, flirty lips can help a woman feel more attractive and confident. A lip augmentation is an aesthetic procedure used to give patients more full, plump, and voluptuous lips. It can also be used to help create pleasing, more attractively shaped lips. This procedure is simple, easy to complete, and involves little to no downtime.
What methods does Dr. Ramirez Gavidia Use?
At RG Plastic Surgery and Rejuvenation Spa, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia primarily uses Juvederm® and Restylane® in his lip procedures. Both of these hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are extremely reputable and have given countless patients beautiful lip augmentation results. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body and absorbs over time.
Each injection session typically lasts no longer than 30 minutes. Patients are advised not to apply lipstick to their lips for the first few days after treatment. While side effects like bruising, swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection site are common, these also typically subside within a few days of treatment.
Am I a good candidate for Lip Augmentation?
Nearly anyone interested in improving the appearance of their lips is a potential candidate for lip enhancement.. Ideal patients should be non-smokers that are in good health. Most of the time, patients with active oral herpes, diabetes, lupus, or blood clotting problems cannot undergo injectable lip procedures.
Before undergoing treatment, each patient must schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia. During this appointment, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will ask you about your current state of health, medical history, and aesthetic goals in order to decide if a lip augmentation procedure is right for you. Be sure to let him know if you’re allergic to lidocaine, as this mild anesthetic can be included in both Juvederm® and Restylane® injectable procedures to make them more comfortable.
