Your lip augmentation options
There are three primary Houston lip augmentation options available: Juvederm, fat injections and lip implants. Here’s an overview of each approach:
Juvederm is a popular, safe, and non-surgical lip enhancement solution. The filler can be placed precisely to achieve a wide range of aesthetic goals – including enhancing the border of your lips and increasing overall volume.
Fat injections involve extracting fat cells from another area of your body, processing it, and re-injecting it into the lips. Dr. Wiener does not perform this procedure because it often produces lumpy and inconsistent results.
Lip implants offer a permanent way to increase lip volume. The procedure involves creating a small incision and placing GORE-TEX, SoftForm or AlloDerm implants. Dr. Wiener does not recommend this approach because there’s an increased risk of infection and sensation changes.
Juvederm: Dr. Wiener’s “go-to” lip augmentation technique
Dr. Wiener typically recommends Juvederm injections to his lip augmentation clients. If you are looking for arguably the best lip enhancement in Houston this is the place to come. This is due to the myriad benefits offered by this approach, including:
- Beautiful + natural cosmetic results
- Long-lasting outcomes (6-12 months)
- No downtime or recovery period
- Quick, 5-minute procedure
The Main Event What to expect during your lip augmentation
To begin your lip augmentation, Dr. Wiener will apply a topical cream to numb your mouth. If you are particularly sensitive, he will also inject an anesthetic into the area.
From there, he will inject Juvederm into your lips using a very fine needle. He will use a conservative hand to ensure results that look natural – never artificial. The entire process will take about 5 minutes, with most patients requiring a single syringe.
Once the Juvederm is in place, Dr. Wiener will gently massage the area to ensure that no bumps are present. He will also apply ice to minimize any swelling.
After your injections…
Here’s what to expect after your Juvederm lip injections at Dr. Wiener’s Houston office:
Minimal side effects
Some patients experience minor swelling and bruising at the injection site. Although these effects can endure up to one week, they usually dissipate within a day or two.
One of the best things about Juvederm is that the results appear immediately. As such, you will be able to see your fuller lips right away.
After your Juvederm lip augmentation, you will be free to resume your normal daily routine and exercise regimen right away. You can even wear lipstick and lip gloss immediately.
Juvederm cosmetic results can last six to twelve months, at which point you will require a maintenance visit to preserve your new look.
