Your lips are one of the most noticeable features of your face. But hereditary factors as well as aging leave some people feeling unsatisfied and not as confident about the appearance of their lips. For years, patients have trusted Dr. Miller to restore the shape and volume of their lips. Our practice is proud to have helped countless patients bring back the beauty of their lips and increase their confidence.
There are numerous filler materials (as well as fat) to help achieve what every patient is after: fuller, well-contoured lips. Most of these soft tissue fillers are made from a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. Besides being the safest material to use, hyaluronic acid is soft and can be molded easily to create the type of lips our patients are after. Restylane, Restylane Silk, Belotero and Juvederm are the most popular dermal fillers being used today for lip augmentation. Dr. Miller works with each patient to create a personalized plan and will find the lip filler that is perfect for you and your aesthetic goals.
Lip filler injections take just a few minutes to perform and require little downtime. Your lips can be lightly or totally numbed before the injections are administered. Patients should not fear that their lips will look “ducky” or overblown. Dr. Miller has perfected injecting the right amount of the appropriate filler (only a little is often needed) with results that are pleasing and natural.
LIP AUGMENTATION RECOVERY
There is little to no recovery time with lip filler injections. Many of our Boston patients have the treatment performed during their lunch hour. Your lips may be slightly swollen for one to two days and bruising can be avoided by compression and ice following the procedure.
LIP AUGMENTATION RESULTS
Lip augmentation results last from three to six months but there can be a wide variation from patient to patient.
