The best candidates for lip augmentation have thin lips or have fine lines surrounding their lips. Patients who desire curvier, fuller, and more pouty lips also make great candidates for Lip Augmentation with injectable fillers.
What Do Lip Injections in New Orleans Cost?
Lip injections in New Orleans cost around $600 to $1000 per treatment session. The cost of lip injections depends on what products are injected into the lip, the amount of product being injected, the time required to perform the injections, and the expertise of the person doing the injections.
Dr. Weiss performs all lip injections and is an expert injector with the use of high quality and specific products such as Juvederm, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne. Once the desired enhancement is realized, maintenance lip injections are typically performed 2-3 times per year.
How Is a Lip Augmentation Procedure Performed?
Lip augmentation is a simple procedure that’s often done with injectable fillers. It can also be performed with fat transfer for longer-lasting results.
To begin, you’ll have a consultation with Dr. Weiss to determine the best solution for your needs. After that, it’s time for your lip augmentation treatment.
If you’re enhancing your lips with fillers, Dr. Weiss may start by applying a topical anesthetic for your comfort. He will then inject the product through a tiny needle to add volume and shape to your lips. It’s normal to feel a slight twinge during this process. To finish, Dr. Weiss may gently massage the product before letting you check your initial results.
Lip Augmentation Procedure Time
Most of our patients in the New Orleans area spend thirty minutes to an hour at their lip augmentation appointment. It doesn’t take very long to inject the lips with fillers. However, there’s a waiting period for the topical anesthetic to take effect.
Lip augmentation with fat grafting takes longer than lip augmentation with fillers. This is due to the process involving the removal of excess fat from another area of the body to use for treatment.
What Are The Benefits of Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation offers a wide range of benefits that make it an incredibly popular treatment across the country. Some of those benefits include:
- Quick treatment times
- Temporary results that can be reversed if you are using fillers
- Long-lasting results if you are using fat transfer
- Instant boost in lip volume
- Improved lip structure and symmetry
- Minimal downtime
For many people, lip augmentation is a great way to add volume that was never present. It’s also an excellent option for correcting age-related lip thinning and achieving a more youthful look. Talk to Dr. Weiss about the benefits that you can expect in your situation. This procedure is very popular as it helps you achieve an all natural look and long lasting results. With no downtime and the ability to combine this with other procedures, Lip augmentation is a very convenient treatment to have done.
What Are The Risks of Lip Augmentation?
There are some risks involved with lip augmentation, though they are uncommon and often temporary. You may experience side effects such as a cold sore flares, swelling, or bruising. In the hands of an inexperienced injector, it’s possible to end up with issues such as asymmetrical results.
You should always visit a qualified provider to minimize the risks of lip augmentation. Dr. Sean Weiss is double board-certified and has extensive experience with these treatments. He personally performs all lip augmentation procedures at our practice.
Lip Augmentation Recovery Process
Patients love lip augmentation because it requires little to no downtime. With fillers, you may experience some mild swelling or redness at the injection site for a few days. Icing the area can help fix these concerns sooner. You may also be asked to avoid certain activities, such as strenuous exercise, for a short time after the procedure.
Swelling and bruising tend to be more significant with fat transfer. You may notice these post-procedure effects for three to seven days. Most people take some time off work to recover.
How Long After a Lip Augmentation Procedure Will I See My Results?
Lip augmentation creates an immediate and flattering boost in volume. Don’t be surprised if your lips look a bit bigger than you anticipated due to swelling. It can take a few days for swelling and bruising to fade. At that time, you’ll be able to see your final results. You’ll be amazed to see how natural and stunning the final results are!
