What is Lip Augmentation?
Unlike Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, most of us are not born with lips that look like little, pink-hued clouds lingering softly upon the landscape of our faces. But luckily for men and women who are less genetically blessed, Dr. David L. Abramson offers a variety of lip augmentation.
Lip augmentation typically features an assortment of injectables that are used to plump up thin lips and fill in lines caused by aging. These dermal fillers can be made of various materials, including collagen, hyaluronic acid and human fat.
Not only can lip augmentation enhance the fullness of your lips, but they can also raise or define a cupid’s bow or vermillion border.
Is Lip Augmentation Right for You?
The most common method for lip augmentation is injectables with Hyaluronic acid filler or fat grafting.
It’s important when performing a lip augmentation to try and obtain a natural appearance and not an overfilled one. There are other permanent implantables such as cortex or other products that have been used in the past. Although these may provide a more permanent result they can sometimes lead to an abnormal appearance around the mouth.
Of the hundreds of patients who travel from throughout New York and New Jersey for our lip augmentation procedures, most are men and women between the ages of 30 and 60. Some choose to treat just the upper or lower lip, while others have both enlarged at the same time. Dr. Abramson will discuss your concerns and goals for lip augmentation during an initial consultation.
About Your Lip Augmentation Surgery
Because it is a minimally invasive treatment, your lip augmentation can take place in Dr. Abramson’s New York City or Englewood office. Once your injection sites are marked, a specialist will infuse the selected material into your lips. Each injection only takes a few moments, so the procedure typically lasts less than an hour.
The Cost of Your Lip Augmentation
The amount it will cost you for lip augmentation will rely greatly on how many injections are needed and how much of the dermal filler is used. Dr. Abramson’s staff can give you more details on lip augmentation prices when you meet for a preliminary appointment.
