Creating full and sensual lips in Beverly Hills adds youthfulness and sensuality to the face. Dr. Jeff Jumaily specializes in cosmetic surgery of the face and lips. He uses non-surgical procedures with fillers to augment and enhance the lips for beautiful and natural-looking lips. For select patients where fillers are not enough, Dr. Jumaily will choose a surgical lip lift procedure to create the desired shape.
What Is Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the lips, along with surrounding areas. Dermal fillers provide a minimally invasive non-surgical option for lip enhancement.
Dr. Jumaily uses injectable dermal fillers to smooth away fine lines around the lips (perioral lip lines), add volume to thinning lips, or reshape the lip area to achieve a certain look.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Lip Enhancement?
If you want plumper lips and a reduction in the appearance of perioral lip lines, you are an ideal candidate for dermal fillers. Having a positive outlook and realistic goals is vital before undergoing any lip-enhancement treatment.
You must be in good overall health and have no bleeding disorders. It is also important that you have no active infection such as oral herpes.
Your consultation with Dr. Jumaily will involve a physical examination of your lips and the region around your mouth. It is important to discuss your medical history, as well as the current medications and supplements you are taking. If you have any known allergies to lidocaine or any past occurrences of cold sores (oral herpes), inform Dr. Jumaily.
Your lip-enhancement treatment starts with determining where the injection sites will be. These will be marked so that Dr. Jumaily can administer the filler injections to the target areas with precision.
Lidocaine is included in the filler mixture, which is why, in most cases, other anesthetics are no longer necessary. If you are sensitive to pain, ice packs can help numb the area prior to injections.
After all the injections are done, the markings will be erased. Ice packs may be applied on the treated areas to reduce discomfort.
The treatment is relatively quick – it should take about 10 to 30 minutes to complete the whole procedure. You will observe noticeable results right away.
Aftercare Following Lip Enhancement
You may be able to go back to your normal routine right after your lip treatment without any downtime or recovery time. It might take several hours for the fillers to settle, but your lips should feel natural after settling has occurred. It is best to avoid applying lipstick and other lip products after your injections.
Expect minor swelling and bruising, which should disappear in a few days. Do not apply firm pressure on the treated areas.
Lip Augmentation Cost
The cost of lip-augmentation treatment varies, since it is customized to address each patient’s concerns. The overall price may include the type of dermal filler used and the number of injections needed.
