Lip fillers are a very effective, quick, and relatively inexpensive solution to reshape or add volume to the lips. A lip filler is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to increase the appearance of lines and wrinkles and correct symmetry in the lips. The type of lip filler used will depend on the patient’s goals. A triple board certified plastic surgeon will review the patient’s needs and conduct an examination to help determine which product is the best for them.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance that is found in the body. This makes it extremely unlikely for the body to reject the filler and it is also biodegradable. Some of the top lip fillers on the market are Restylane Silk and Juvederm Volbella. These dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a numbing agent that will prevent pain and discomfort during the injection process.

It is important to find an experienced injector who has extensive experience with lip fillers. The skill of the injector will have a direct impact on the patient’s final results. Overfilling is a common mistake that can cause unnaturally puffy and swollen lips. A good injector will be able to deliver a balanced and natural result that will enhance the existing facial features without looking overdone or fake.
Some patients may prefer to have the procedure performed gradually over a few appointments rather than all at once. This will give the patient a chance to see how they look with the added volume and make sure that they are happy with their results before proceeding with additional treatments or permanent surgery.
