Plump Your Pucker With Lip Augmentation

Full, vivacious lips can be an aesthetically important facial feature. Some of the sexiest celebrities have a perfect pucker. Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian and Scarlett Johansson are just few who are known for their beautifully plump lips. Some of us however, are born with thin, ill-defined lips which give no shape to our face and disappear when we smile. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your lips, Dr. Sharon Giese offers lip augmentation at her NYC, AAAASF Accredited, surgical suite to increase the volume of your lips, enhancing the contours of your pucker.*

Lip augmentation, also referred to as lip enhancement, can be achieved using two different techniques: implants or injectables. During lip augmentation using implants, Dr. Giese will surgically insert a silicone implant inside of your lip. This procedure is typically 15 minutes and does involve a small incision, but any resulting scars can be hidden in the corners of your mouth. Recovery following lip enhancement using implants is minimal, but you should be prepared for four to five days of downtime as well as some bruising and swelling. Results achieved with implants are typically long-lasting.*

Using injectables for lip augmentation treatment can be less invasive than receiving implants, and the results are typically long-lasting for most patients. A variety of dermal fillers as well as fat grafting may be used, these treatments are injected under the skin, and can add volume to the lip. If fat grafting is implemented, you’ll be using your own fat cells from a donor location, such as your abdomen, thighs, love handles, or flanks, to relocate fat to your lips. Lip enhancement using injectables is a simple, 15 minute procedure, and you will see results shortly after treatment with little to no downtime.* Dr. Sharon Giese can discuss lip augmentation in her NYC office and determine which lip enhancement option may best benefit you.
