What It’s Like to Get Lip Injections?

Celebrities like Kylie Jenner have turned plump pouts into a must-have facial feature. Many normal women have started turning to plastic surgery to improve the shape of their lips. Lip injections are an effective, non-invasive way to add volume to the lips. If you’re curious about what the procedure entails, here’s a quick guide to the process.

What Exactly Am I Injecting into My Lips?

If you’re new to the world of plastic surgery, it’s understandable if you’re wary of having something injected into your body. Most of the filler injected into the lips, however, is made of hyaluronic acid. This substance is actually naturally occurring in the body. It’s also frequently found in facial moisturizers, as it has impressive hydrating properties. So when your plastic surgeon suggests using a filler like Restylane or Juvederm to enhance your lips, know that the primary ingredient in these fillers is something that your body naturally produces itself.

What’s the Procedure Like?

Before the procedure, many patients choose to use a numbing cream to reduce pain. After the area has been numbed, the doctor uses a syringe to inject the filler into the lips. After the material is injected into the lips, the doctor will shape and mold it to create the desired aesthetic. This helps to achieve natural looking results, and it prevents any unwanted bumps from forming.

Does the Procedure Hurt?

Because the lips are often numbed beforehand, many patients say that the pain is fairly moderate. Some can’t feel the needle puncturing the lips at all!

What About Recovery?

After the procedure is finished, you can expect to experience swelling and redness for the next few days. The lips tend to settle after two days, and the final results are achieved after a week. Immediately following the procedure, many patients like to use ice packs to minimize the side effects. Some people will find that in the first few hours after the procedure, that it’s harder to move the lips than usual.

How Long Do They Last?

How long your new lips last depend on what kind of filler you used and how much filler was injected. For some patients, their lips retain volume for as long as a year. Others say that they see a noticeable decrease after four months. Lip injections are a temporary fix, but many woman say they feel more confident and attractive after this quick, non-invasive procedure.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.

Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
