If you are looking to enhance the shape or size of the lips, you may want to consider lip injections at Newport Plastic Surgery. We offer this and other injectable treatments under the expertise of Dr. Go, a highly experienced plastic surgery physician in Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach, and the surrounding communities of CA.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a non-surgical method of lip augmentation. These treatments use dermal filler products to enhance lip shape and volume. Lip injections can be a great treatment for patients who have experienced age-related volume loss in the lips. They can also be a suitable treatment for patients who would simply like to achieve more voluptuous and plumper lips without surgery. At Newport Plastic Surgery, we may recommend one of the following dermal filler products for your lip injection treatment:
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
The cost of lip injections can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
How Are Lip Injections Administered?
Lip injections are administered through a number of injections into and around the lips. The injection process is generally well-tolerated, and we offer a nerve block anesthetic injection to minimize discomfort. The lip injection treatment takes less than an hour to complete, which is why it and many similar injectable treatments are referred to as “lunchtime” or “lunch break” treatments.
What is Recovery Like After a Lip Injection Treatment?
After a lip injection treatment, patients may notice mild bruising, swelling, or redness around the lips. These effects are common, and typically fade within a few days. Despite these side effects, patients will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. There is no downtime required after lip injections.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Lip Injections?
Dr. Go takes pride in personally performing all injections for his private patients and strives to achieve a natural, balanced lip augmentation approach to his injections in order to avoid the all too common tragic ‘fish lips’ appearance that is witnessed around southern California. The results from your expert lip injection treatment by Dr. Go will be visible immediately and can last six months to a year, but the duration will vary by patient and on the dermal filler product used for treatment.
