At Wirth Plastic surgery, we offer non-surgical lip augmentation that can enable you to love your plump, full lips whenever you look in the mirror. Reach out and set up your consultation today!
How Does Lip Augmentation Work?
Lip augmentation varies, depending on your specific goals. During your consultation, Dr. Wirth will work with you to determine which method is best for you.
Lip augmentation is typically performed using some type of injectable filler, with some of the most common options being hyaluronic acids like JUVÉDERM®, as well as collagen or fat injections.
Prior to your procedure, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed and a dental block or topical anesthetic will be used to numb your lips. Dr. Wirth will then use a very fine syringe or cannula, specific to your procedure, to inject filler or fat into the treatment area(s). Dr. Wirth may need to briefly massage the treatment area to ensure proper contour, with the entire procedure typically taking less than 30 minutes to complete.
