Lip augmentation with injectable facial fillers is the gold standard solution for patients who are concerned that their lips have lost volume due to aging, for those who feel their lips look too uneven, and for those who would simply like a more youthful and sensuous appearance.
Respected Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., better known as Dr. J, has helped countless people with injectable-based lip augmentation. These treatments improve the appearance of lips by proportionally increasing their size while making them fuller and erasing wrinkles. These non-invasive procedures allow the doctor to painstakingly reshape the appearance of the mouth so that it looks beautiful on its own but, even more important, complements the patient’s entire face.
FACIAL FILLERS AND LIP AUGMENTATION
In most cases, Dr. J employs fillers from the well-known Juvederm or Restylane lines. The primary ingredient in these fillers is hyaluronic acid, a thick substance that is a naturally occurring lubricant found on the inside of our joints. It has numerous moisturizing benefits and is commonplace in cosmetic products. When added to lips, this substance fosters a look that is full and even voluptuous. Used in treatments successfully for decades, research* has shown that hyaluronic acid is highly effective and efficient for lip augmentation.
DOES LIP AUGMENTATION HURT?
Since it involves injections in the most sensitive area of the face, it’s easy to see why prospective patients may have concerns about pain. The Dr. J team uses a very effective topical anesthetic and we’re happy to say that we can minimize the very brief discomfort with consistent success. Moreover, since it’s only a topical anesthetic you’ll be able to immediately resume your normal activities once we’re done.
Treatments can be performed during a brief office visit. There is essentially no downtime time and we work hard to minimize any very minor swelling or bruising. Unlike many procedures, results can be seen immediately although it may take a few weeks for the full outcome to appear.
