Lip Augmentation, Cumming GA
Enhancing the lips is one of the procedures that can be done, which can have a huge impact on the overall youthful rejuvenation of the entire face. By restoring the volume that has naturally been lost over time, a refreshed and youthful appearance can be achieved. Our goal is to give you the natural results you desire.
Every patient has a thorough exam of their facial structures and then spends time with Dr. Payman discussing the treatment options and desired results. Some patients have had thin lips all their lives and they would like to enhance their lips to bring them to a more “normal” size, in artistic symmetry with the rest of their face. Other patients simply would like to have their lips accentuated for the purpose of making them more full or voluminous. Still other patients would like to have correction of lip lines or “smoker’s lines”, although they may not have necessarily have been caused by smoking.
Products and Procedures
For many who undergo lip augmentation, atrophy or loss of hyaluronic acid in the lip is the primary reason for treatment. Dr. Payman often uses Restylane Silk or Juvederm®, a pure form of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the sugar-based gel that naturally supports the cells in our skin, is a major component in the fluids that lubricate our joints, and gives our eyes there spherical structure. Anytime one performs injections there can be a small amount of discomfort. Regional anesthesia is almost always injected to make the procedure virtually painless.
Short-term swelling and redness lasting 24 hours is common, although often there is no down time at all. Sometimes transient bruising lasting a few days occurs. In order to reduce the risk of bruising, we recommend that all blood thinners and vitamins/herbs are stopped if medically cleared by your primary care doctor.
