If you’re unhappy with the shape of your lips, you don’t have to just ‘live with it’. Lip injections can plump up the lips, giving them enviable volume and accentuating a pouty cupid’s bow. Lip injection treatments are available at Nease Cosmetic Surgery for residents of Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville and surrounding areas of north Alabama.
What Are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are intended to plump up thin lips, visibly erase tiny lines around the lips or give the lips a more defined, symmetrical appearance. This can be done with dermal fillers specifically designed for use on the lips, with fat transfer or with silicone lip implants.
At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we use Juvéderm® Volbella XC for lip injections. Juvéderm® Volbella XC is a hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler specifically formulated for lip augmentation.
Juvéderm® Volbella XC is also highly effective for filling in the small vertical lines around the mouth, frequently called ‘smoker’s lines’, although they can occur around the mouths of non-smokers as well. The medical term for these lines is ‘perioral rhytids’ and Juvéderm® Volbella XC performs well in visibly erasing them.
How Much Are Lip Injections in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
Lip fillers at Nease Cosmetic Surgery can range from $400 to $700. The cost of lip injections will vary from one patient to another, depending on the complexity of the treatment and the amount of product needed to achieve the desired outcome. During your initial consultation, your customized treatment plan will be determined and an accurate cost can be given to you at that time.
Most insurance companies will not cover the cost of cosmetic procedures. At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we strive to keep patient procedures as affordable as possible, by offering complimentary consultations along with a variety of payment options. We accept cash, major credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are the Benefits of Lip Injections?
There are many benefits of lip injections and most patients are quite happy with the final results. Some common benefits include:
- No downtime necessary
- Immediate, long-lasting results
- Increases volume to aging or thin lips
- Smoothes out small vertical lines around the mouth
- Defines and improves symmetry and lip shape
Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Injections?
Most healthy adults who are not satisfied with the size or shape of their lips is likely a good candidate for lip injections. It’s generally recommended that women considering lip injections should not be pregnant or breastfeeding.
During the initial consultation, the doctor will help you determine if your expectations are in alignment with what’s possible and if lip injections are the best option to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. If they’re not, he will help you explore other possible alternatives.
What is Lip Injection Recovery Like?
Recovery time after lip injection is very brief, typically lasting only about 24 hours. You may experience some swelling, bruising and a bit of pain, but the symptoms are typically minor and will resolve on their own within about a week.
For best recovery results, be sure to read and closely follow all post-treatment instructions you may be given.
