Lip augmentation is a temporary, nonsurgical procedure that increases the size of your lips and may reduce fine wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Martinez-Noda uses plasma gel, Juvederm®, and Restylane® lip fillers on the upper and lower lips to create more volume and a smoother appearance.
Juvederm and Restylane are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to retain moisture and increase volume in the lips. Plasma gel is a substance that is made from extracting the plasma from your own blood.
Lip augmentation is a fast and easy procedure at Dr. Martinez-Noda’s office. If you opt for the plasma gel procedure, this may take longer, as the doctor needs time to filter and extract the liquid plasma from your blood to create the plasma gel.
Dr. Martinez-Noda first meets with you to discuss your treatment goals and to perform an assessment of your lips and skin. He applies a local numbing agent to the skin to minimize any discomfort from the needle used to deliver the injection. He marks the injection area and carefully pierces the skin to plump the lips with the filler substance.
After the procedure is complete, he might give you ice to help ease any swelling or discomfort. However, most patients do not experience any pain.
You should notice an immediate difference in the size and shape of your lips, and your results will continue to improve over the course of several weeks. Some patients may require additional treatments to enhance their results.
Lip augmentation is one of the most convenient and safest cosmetic enhancements. It can give you a youthful boost at any time of the year, and the procedure takes just a few minutes to complete.
Lip augmentation can add instant volume to thin, sagging lips, and the results only continue to get better with time.
For patients who aren’t ready for a more invasive augmentation procedure, like fat grafting, a lip filler is a perfect alternative. The risk of side effects or allergic reactions is minimal, and the results are natural-looking and comfortable.
