Lip Augmentation

lip augmentation / plastic surgery

Fuller, plumper lips have grown in popularity over the last decade and there are several options available to those seeking to improve the look of their lips.  In addition, the vertical lip lines acquired over a lifetime can be nicely diminished with these fillers as well.

Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid are the most commonly used methods of lip augmentationand wrinkle reduction. They can be safely injected in and around the lips.  Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body and is a safe method for increasing volume in the lips.

The newer options available today are safer than collagen, last longer and offer more natural results.

Benefits of Utilizing Dermal Fillers

  • Decrease vertical lip lines
  • Improved Shape
  • Improved Structure
  • Added Volume

The effects typically last 6 to 8 months, and then re-treatment will be needed.

There are several dermal fillers including:

  • Restylane
  • Juvederm
  • Belotero

Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips.

Benefits of Lip Filler:

  1. Control over lip volume.The amount of substance injected can be moderated, so the Dr. Breister Ghosh has better control over how much lip volume is created.
  2. Bumps are dissolvable. Although they are rare,  any lumps and bumps can be dissolved easily.
  3. Less bruising.There can be reduced bruising and swelling in comparison to other dermal fillers.
  4. Lasting results. The results are reasonably long-lasting and natural.
