Are you considering reversing the effects of a lip filler? At Sadrian Plastic Surgery in San Diego, we understand that aesthetic preferences can change over time. Our Lip Filler Dissolving procedure offers a solution to gently and effectively reverse the results of previous lip filler treatments, providing you with a fresh canvas to work with. Let's explore the ins and outs of this innovative procedure and how it can benefit you.
Lip Filler Dissolving, also known as lip filler removal or lip filler reversal, is a specialized procedure designed to safely dissolve hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body commonly used in dermal fillers to add volume and shape to the lips. However, sometimes individuals may desire a change in their lip appearance or may experience complications from previous filler injections. Lip Filler Dissolving utilizes an enzyme called hyaluronidase to break down the hyaluronic acid, allowing the filler to be gradually absorbed by the body.
The benefits of Lip Filler Dissolving are numerous. If you're unhappy with the results of your previous lip filler treatment or if you've experienced complications, this procedure offers a solution that can help you achieve your desired lip appearance. Lip Filler Dissolving allows for precise and controlled adjustments, ensuring a natural and symmetrical outcome. This procedure is suitable for individuals across a wide age range, from those in their 20s to their 60s, looking to restore their lips to a more natural state.
During your consultation at Sadrian Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sadian will take the time to understand your specific concerns and aesthetic goals. Our focus is on you and your unique preferences.

The Lip Filler Dissolving procedure itself is a straightforward process. Dr. Sadian will carefully administer hyaluronidase into the targeted areas of the lips.
