Lip Augmentation

Full, sensuous lips

The appearance of your lips can create a lasting first impression. Full, sensuous lips are associated with femininity, youth, and attractiveness. If your lips are thin or have lost fullness due to the natural aging process, with lip augmentation San Diego specialists at Dr. Sadrian's can enhance the look of your lips, so your face appears more alluring.

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a minimally-invasive, injectable filler treatment that achieves results without downtime. Using the best fillers to achieve your aesthetic goals, Dr. Sadrian creates a full, subtle volume and youthful appearance. Lip augmentation is an easy, safe way to enhance the shape, size, and fullness of your lips without surgery or invasive procedures. A simple procedure that takes less than 30 minutes is all you need to add a bit of allure and balance to your facial features.

What Can I Expect During Lip Augmentation?

The injections are made using dermal fillers which are hyaluronic acid-based. Hyaluronic acid works to attract and retain moisture, providing the pillowy fullness you desire. Which filler is used is determined ahead of time during your consultation, based on the condition of your lips and skin, and your aesthetic goals. During your San Diego lip augmentation treatment, we will start by cleansing your skin. Dr. Sadrian will apply a topical numbing cream to your lips to allow you to be comfortable during the entire procedure. Then, he will strategically place a series of small injections to provide the optimal enhancement for your lips and face. This is a precision treatment that ensures your results are natural-looking and beautiful. The treatment is short and can be done during your lunch break. The entire procedure should last about 30 minutes. Once it is complete, you can carry on with your day and usual activities.

Lip fillers with Dr. Sadrian

Dr. Sadrian uses HA-based fillers to achieve plump, supple, attractive lips. This natural substance in the body attracts water and provides smooth volume and hydration. HA-based fillers mimic this quality and provide smoother skin and fuller, enhanced lips, and a shapely, symmetrical, attractive pout. Dr. Sadrian uses these precisely to achieve the shape and size you want, while also filling any vertical lines or wrinkles around the mouth.

Juvéderm Ultra XC

Juvederm Ultra XC filler can be used anywhere on the face, but it is typically used to fill the lips and smooth the areas around the lips. Results last 6-12 months, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the filler.

Restylane Silk

Specifically designed for lip augmentation and smoothing the wrinkles around the mouth, Restylane Silk uses smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles to achieve a more natural, attractive appearance. Like Ultra XC, Silk lasts for 6-12 months.

Restylane Kysse

Restylane Kysse is designed with XpresHAn Technology™ to provide flexible movement and natural-looking volume. Kysse is also particularly long-lasting, proven to provide supple results and volume for up to a year.

What Can I Expect Following Lip Augmentation?

You may experience mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site. Your lips may look bigger than you expected due to swelling. This is temporary and should subside within a few days following your procedure. You may resume your normal activities immediately following your lip enhancement procedure. We recommend that you stay out of the sun and avoid heat, such as hot tubs or saunas, for a day, and avoid massage or putting pressure on your lips for a few hours or a day following your treatment.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The results of lip augmentation typically last six to twelve months, depending on the type of dermal filler used in your procedure, and the rate that your body metabolizes the filler. Restylane Kysse, which is specially designed for lip augmentation, is noted for lasting particularly long. To maintain your beautiful lips and smooth skin, a touchup treatment can be done as you notice the results slowly beginning to diminish over the following months.
