Achieving Fuller Lips: What is Lip Augmentation?

The lips are often revered as one of the most attractive parts of the body. A lip augmentation is an aesthetic procedure used to give patients lips that are more plump, full, and voluptuous, and attractively shaped. This treatment is simple, easy, convenient, and involves little to no downtime.

Methods Dr. Ramirez Gavidia Uses

At RG Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia primarily uses Juvéderm® and Restylane® in his lip augmentation procedures. Both of these hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are extremely reputable and have given countless patients excellent results. 

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found within the body and absorbs over time. It’s responsible for keeping the skin hydrated and youthful-looking. When hyaluronic acid is injected, it attracts and binds water, which makes the tissue appear more plump and youthful.

Evaluating Your Face Holistically

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia is well known and widely respected for his technique of combining procedures to achieve the best results. This holistic approach delivers a more comprehensive and balanced result, as he takes your entire appearance into consideration.

Lip Augmentation Treatment Details

Each lip augmentation injection treatment typically lasts no longer than 30 minutes. Patients are advised not to apply lipstick to their lips for the first few days after injections. 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 Candidate for Lip Augmentation?

Nearly anyone who is interested in improving the appearance of their lips is a potential candidate for lip enhancement. Ideal patients should be non-smokers who 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 lip augmentation, each patient must schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia. During this consultation, he will ask you about your current state of health, medical history, and aesthetic goals. 

This information will help determine if a lip augmentation treatment 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 Juvéderm and Restylane.
