Considering Lip Filler? Lip Augmentation Specialist Austin
Full and vivacious lips have always been recognized as aesthetically important features.
They are a central part of the face that everyone recognizes in daily social interactions. Some of us, however, are born with thin, ill-defined lips, or our lips lose their fullness with age.
The appearance of our lips is now within our control. Fine lines and wrinkles, thin lips and a drooping corner of the mouth are all areas that can be aided with injectable fillers. The market is ever changing, with new products appearing rapidly.
Full Lips are the sign of youth and considered a sexy feature for both men and women. As we age the upper lip becomes longer and thinner and often covers all visibility of the upper teeth and this creates a less attractive look.

Lip augmentation or Lip enhancement “plumps up” the lips and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Lip augmentation (enhancement) can be done through fat transfer or with hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers such as Restylane® and Restylane Silk® or Juvederm. Since these materials are gradually absorbed by the body, you will need to come back for touch-up treatments to maintain that full-lipped look. A benefit of the procedure being temporary is that you can try out your lip enhancement and see if it is the right volume for the look you seek.
A Natural Look with Lip Filler is Totally Doable!
So many of my clients are worried about botched lip fillers, usually from a lip augmentation they got on sale or a Groupon. Just don’t do it! You can try out some lip filler with just half a syringe to see if you like it. It’s very subtle, and my clients return 95% of the time for more.
A considerable amount of women and men often feel self-conscious about having thin lips. Full bodied lips have become a revered attribute, largely in part to celebrity prominence in American culture. As a result, more and more people are choosing to get lip augmentation procedures to attain full, vibrant lips.
How Long Do Cosmetic Fillers Last?
This is a complicated question. Depending on the area treated, your skin, and the injection technique, Restylane and Juvederm will last 4 to 6 months. In some cases duration of the effects can be a bit shorter or longer. Juvederm Ultra Plus and Perlane are thicker and last approximately 6-9 months. However, everyone is different, and there are some rare folks who get a year to 18 months.
Can I Have Lip Injections Done Before an Event?
I tell all of my clients… Do NOT do lip fillers if you have something important to do that night or the next day.
You just never know if you will swell, bruise etc. Come in a week or so before the event, and we will augment your lips in whatever way you desire.
What is a Typical Recovery Like for Lip Filler?
Topical numbing cream is applied before lip injections, so the procedure is itself is more comfortable. There may be some discomfort afterward, but most of my patients report swelling the next day.
Is There a Lot of Bruising with Lip Injections?
While I cannot say for sure (nor can anyone else) that you will or won’t bruise, most of my clients do not. I use a specialized technique and put the Lip Filler in tiny syringes. This advanced lip augmentation technique is not commonly used in Austin, Texas. It makes for a much more comfortable, easier recovery.
