Lip Augmentation Q & A

by Tarik M. Husain, MD, FACS

What is lip augmentation?

In this world of selfies, social media, and celebrity culture, you may wish you had fuller lips, and you’re not alone. Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the size of your lips. Dr. Husain can help you obtain fuller, plumper lips, enhancing both their size and shape with cosmetic lip fillers.

What are lip fillers?

Lip fillers, also called dermal fillers, are gels Dr. Husain uses to plump up your lips. There are a number of different dermal fillers available, but Dr. Husain offers Juvederm® and Restylane®.

Dr. Husain prefers dermal fillers because they plump up the lips more naturally than implants and, as a gel, keep your lips soft and supple.

How do lip fillers work?

Both Juvederm and Restylane contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your body that holds moisture, making it effective at plumping your lips. It’s also non-allergenic, safe, and easy to inject.

To produce fuller lips, Dr. Husain first examines your lips for symmetry and size and takes pictures to help him map out the injection sites. You may feel some pain during the injection, but Dr. Husain can use a numbing agent or a filler that contains lidocaine to ease your discomfort.

A lip augmentation procedure with Dr. Husain takes 30 minutes or less, and you’ll notice an improvement in the size of your lips immediately.

How long do lip fillers last?

Lip fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, can keep your lips plump for up to a year. When you come back in for your next round, you’ll notice that Dr. Husain can administer fewer injections while achieving the same results.

If you’re considering lip augmentation, Dr. Husain can safely and effectively plump up your lips on your lunch break. Call the office today or schedule a consultation online.
