Beverly Hills lip augmentations are more popular than ever! You have probably noticed celebrities showing off their full sexy lips on social media - with which they may not have been naturally gifted.
And they aren’t shy about admitting they’ve had some help. Aesthetic self-care is accepted and celebrated now more than ever, and by all age ranges! Women are exploring the results of lip augmentation as early on as their 20s or 30s as well as those keeping their lips looking beautiful late into life. The lips will inevitably lose volume and shape as a person ages.
Wrinkles and thinning lips may be okay for some, but others prefer full lips and demand a solution that will give them what they want. When it comes to lip augmentation, world-renowned plastic surgeons Dr. Andrew Ordon and Dr. Ritu Chopra understand what patients are looking for. They have helped countless patients achieve these results and they're ready to help you.
Lip augmentation refers to any of several cosmetic techniques and treatments designed to provide smoother, fuller, and radiant lips. Because there are many ways to address signs of aging in the lips such as loss of volume, the plastic Surgery Institute offers a multitude of treatment options. All of which have unique abilities to improve lips and so can be tailored to your aesthetic goals. We want to ensure you get the best lip augmentation in Beverly Hills.
Dermal fillers have experienced an explosion in popularity in the last 20 years. They are injectable substances that produce lift, increase volume, and restore areas of the face that display signs of aging to a more youthful appearance. As we age, we lose volume in critical areas of the face.
This loss of volume leads to the appearance of lines, wrinkles, hollow temples, thinning lashes, sunken eyes, and an aged appearance. Our doctors use fillers to restore the loss of volume, smooth out folds and wrinkles, and enhance contours without altering facial expression to achieve natural results. Most patients encounter just slight pain. For a more relaxed experience, a local anesthetic cream may be applied to the skin prior to the procedure. To help alleviate pain, many of our fillers are also formulated with lidocaine.
Some of the most popular dermal fillers are great for more than just facial wrinkles. Restylane and Juvederm, along with the new Captique, are some of the fillers we offer that provide tremendous effects when applied to the lips.
Restylane is a non-animal filler made of stabilized hyaluronic acid that can provide fuller lips and reduce wrinkles' appearance for as much as 4-6 months. It offers an exciting group of products used in over 40 million treatments worldwide, including a line of hyaluronic acid fillers to give you the natural look you want.
Juvederm is another hyaluronic acid filler that provides the highest available substance concentration to give the lips' smoothest enhancement for as long as six months. It is used to preserve facial contours and strengthen aging signs. Juvederm is a dermal filler injectable with a hyaluronic acid-base. It's a treatment that focuses on the forehead, the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth in particular.
Captique, the newest hyaluronic product, is a soft tissue filler that enhances the lips, leaving a more natural look. Captique is also non-animal stabilized and is quickly becoming a new favorite among patients for its youthful and long-lasting results. The filler is used to decrease wrinkles around the mouth and nose, and the results are instantaneous. To maintain results, two to three touchups a year are typically required.
Filler selection depends on the individual patient, their goals for care, and personal facial anatomy. Whatever filler you choose, the effect is a stunning, natural, youthful result. The outcome improves one's own facial characteristics when administered by an experienced provider who has a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy.
Collagen is the chemical naturally produced below the skin that provides volume to the skin and staves off wrinkles. Since it is a natural protein of the body responsible for preserving the skin's elasticity and firmness, the injection of collagen fillers is a safe procedure, but only when a certified and trained healthcare practitioner performs it. A collagen treatment involves a series of microinjections that introduce collagen to the lips and provide fuller lips. Collagen lip injections last as long as three months and many patients argue that collagen, second to fat transfer, is the most natural means of lip augmentation.
A fat transfer for injection in the lips requires very little fat, taken from a wide range of fatty deposits across the body. Fat is extracted from your abdomen and transferred into your lips. It takes approximately sixty to ninety minutes to perform fat transfer to the lips. On the day of the operation, the patient will go home. Fat-increased lips remain plump for five years or longer.
The fat is treated to separate oils and which create a pure concentration of fat cells to provide the maximum uptake in the treatment area. Fat transfer is the process commonly believed to provide the most long-term lip augmentation; however, patients may experience lumpiness and more pronounced swelling and bruising until the body accepts the fat.
Fillers are a great way to see how you like your new look. A highly trained physician or injector administers fillers by injection. For lip augmentation by injection, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm may be used. Their plumping properties last three to six months, making them a safe way to evaluate without engaging in surgery to drive lip augmentation. For lip augmentation, fat transplantation from your own body may also be an option.

Your recovery experience will depend on the method used. For example, if you receive implants, you should expect your lips to be quite swollen and very tender. Numbness can last for several days, and you may find eating and drinking somewhat tricky. Other procedures offer less discomfort and downtime.
