Lip Augmentation in Beverly Hills with Dr. Gabrielle B. Davis

Ordinary daily activities like talking, laughing, eating, drinking, and even smiling can take a toll on sensitive facial skin, especially around the lips and mouth. In this area, stress to the lips and mouth can cause both lost shape and volume of the lips and increase the appearance of vertical lines above the lips. Though these common activities causing stress to your mouth and lips are inescapable, lip augmentation can provide a solution for their consequences.  

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gabrielle B. Davis works to redefine aging gracefully, with meticulous precision and artistic inspiration. By utilizing her considerable knowledge, artistry, and compassion, Dr. Davis strives to give each of her patients the lip augmentation results they desire.

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is an aesthetic treatment that uses dermal fillers and neuromodulators to enhance your lips to restore their plumper, fuller, more youthful-looking appearance. The lips play an important role in the natural balance of the face, so the goal of lip augmentation is to even out lip shape and restore lost volume for a refreshed, natural look.

Typically, for lip fillers, Dr. Davis recommends hyaluronic acid fillers that are structurally softer, biocompatible, and come with minimal risk, including:

  • Restylane Silk
  • Restylane Kysse
  • Juvéderm Ultra
  • Juvéderm Volbella

Lifestyle choices, such as excess sun exposure and smoking, may encourage the development of perioral wrinkles, the fine lines around the mouth. Lip augmentation provides a simple, minimally invasive solution to diminish the appearance of these lines in order to revitalize your appearance. Typically, to address these lines and wrinkles, Dr. Davis recommends neuromodulators such as Botox® or Dysport®.

Botox® Lip Flip

The Lip Flip is a popular non-surgical lip enhancement. Neuromodulators like Botox® can enhance the appearance of the lips with injections at the top of the upper lip and corners of the mouth. While it doesn’t add volume to the lips, it relaxes the muscles, allowing them to curl outward for a plumper appearance and more defined shape.

What are the Benefits of Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is an effective, non-surgical treatment to help rejuvenate the appearance of your lips to restore a youthful balance to the face. With a lip augmentation from Dr. Davis, you never have to worry about overdone, exaggerated-looking lips. Dr. Davis understands that when it comes to your appearance, subtle, precise injections can make a dramatic difference.

Whether you’re looking to restore your lip shape and size due to aging or you’re simply looking for a plumper pout, the advantages of lip augmentation include:

  • Tightened skin around the lips
  • Fuller lips
  • Enhanced, more youthful appearance
  • Zero downtime
  • Low risk, high reward

Dr. Davis recommends that candidates for lip augmentation should:

  • Be at least 18 years old

Typically, most lip augmentation procedures are quick and painless, with most patients reporting only minimal discomfort. The duration of a typical lip augmentation treatment is approximately 15-30 minutes. Many injectables contain lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that alleviates discomfort during and after injections.

As injectable treatments require minimal downtime, most patients can resume normal activities following their lip augmentation. However, you should refrain from strenuous activities, exercises, and opening your mouth widely for 24-48 hours. Side effects can include mild bruising and swelling at the injection site that usually subsides within a few days.

How Soon Will I See Results from My Beverly Hills Lip Augmentation?

Most patients will see significant results immediately following their lip augmentation. Typically, results will last up to 12-18 months and may require periodic touch-up treatments to maintain your optimal results and enhanced appearance.

Lip augmentation with filler is not permanent and typically lasts 12-18 months.

The correct product needs to be selected to obtain natural-looking lips with lip enhancement. For example, a filler that is structurally softer will provide a more natural look and feel to the lips. In addition, do not “overdo it”, avoid using too much product at one time. Sometimes it is better to space out treatment over several appointments to obtain the desired size as the lips will swell during treatment. Most importantly, you want to make sure you are treated by a plastic surgeon with ample experience and skill in the technique.

You can avoid the “over-done” lip by not receiving too much filler at one time. Instead of having all the filler injected at once, you may want to space the treatment, as the lips tend to swell during treatment.

Yes, some patients may have an allergic reaction to fillers.

Typical risks and side effects of lip augmentation are swelling, bruising, cold sore reactivation, asymmetry, and clumping of the filler that will resolve with time. Other risks that can occur are infection and, in extreme cases, tissue necrosis. 

Icing the treated area can help minimize swelling and discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours after treatment as it may elevate blood pressure and heart rate, causing more swelling and bruising. Avoid make-up to the lips for 24 hours post-procedure.

Try to eat low sodium foods immediately after injection to lessen additional swelling.
