Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure, used to enhance the size and shape of the lips. Lip augmentation can involve the surgical placement of a silicone implant for permanent results. Dr. Kayastha prefers a non-surgical approach using fillers to provide a natural result that lasts up to one year.
Candidates for lip augmentation are those who would like to enhance the size or shape of their lips. This can be due to naturally thin lips, or volume loss with age causing the lips to become thinner. Lip augmentation using fillers adds instant volume to the lips and can smooth vertical lip lines for a more youthful appearance.
Lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm is performed in the office. The whole process takes 45 minutes to an hour. Your lips will be numbed with intraoral local anesthetic injections so that when they are actually being injected your will feel very little. This allows you to relax completely during your injections.
