Wouldn’t you love fuller, more voluptuous lips? Now, the plump and voluminous pout you’ve always dreamed of is available at Emmett Plastic Surgery in Lone Tree. Lip augmentation enhances the volume of the lips, resulting in a fuller, more voluptuous lip contour while also reducing vertical lip wrinkles around the upper lip. Dr. Jennifer Emmett, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, and her team of medical specialists provide lip augmentation and other cosmetic procedures for residents of Centennial and the Greater Denver area.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that increases fullness, volume, symmetry, and definition in the lips. Emmett Plastic Surgery provides the Perma Facial ImplantTM silicone implants to achieve lip augmentation, enhancing lip volume and restoring a youthful appearance of fullness to your lips. Although the Perma Facial ImplantTM provides long-term results, the implants may be removed or replaced at a later time if you wish to add further enhancement or decide that you do not like your lip enhancement. Visit our office for a consultation to see if lip augmentation may be right for you.
Benefits of Lip Augmentation
Thin lips surrounded by vertical “smoker’s lines” are dead giveaways that the aging process has caught up with you, and this can detract from an otherwise youthful appearance. Lip augmentation is a simple outpatient procedure that is performed safely and quickly in the doctor’s office, requiring no recovery time. Lip augmentation restores symmetry and definition, as well as volume, fullness, and smoothness to thin lips. If your lipstick doesn’t stay inside the outline of your lips, it may be time to define your lip contour and eliminate those vertical creases where your lipstick bleeds. A lip augmentation procedure can refresh and transform your facial appearance very quickly.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Injections?
If you fantasize about full, voluptuous lips, lip augmentation may be the solution for you. This procedure is safe for most adults in good overall health, though people with certain health conditions affecting the lip area, such as oral herpes, should avoid lip augmentation.
Lip Enhancement at Emmett Plastic Surgery
Lip enhancement techniques may be separated into two categories: temporary and long-term. Temporary techniques require the use of injectable fillers repeated every six to nine months to maintain their appearance. Long-term techniques generally involve the use of injectable gel, fat or implants. Emmett Plastic Surgery proudly provides the Perma Facial ImplantTMsilicone implants for lip augmentation, selected for the benefits it offers over other lip enhancement techniques, including:
- Natural appearance.
- Implant made of soft silicone, NOT an injection.
- Available in a variety of sizes to ensure the right fit and appearance.
- Cannot rupture, deflate, or degrade over time.
- Resistant to tissue “in growth”.
- Long-term, but easily replaceable or removable.
- Does not restrict lip movement.
How is Lip Augmentation Performed?
Lip augmentation is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that is usually performed quickly in the comfort of the doctor’s office. The Perma Facial ImplantTM is positioned using two minuscule incisions on the inside of the corners of the mouth, so there are no visible scars.
How Long Is The Recovery After Lip Augmentation?
Most patients may return to their activities immediately following lip augmentation. Some patients may experience minor discomfort such as swelling or bruising for one to two days, but these symptoms resolve quickly. Following the treatment, avoid touching your lips. Your natural, long-term results will be fully visible after a few days.
How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost?
The cost of lip augmentation varies from patient to patient because every treatment is personalized to the patient’s needs. Since most health insurance providers don’t cover the costs of elective cosmetic procedures such as lip augmentation, our office provides easy financing methods via CareCredit®, Bank SNB, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending. We also accept cash, checks, and credit cards as forms of payment.
