Lip Filler!

Before and After Lip Filler!

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid fillers can be injected into the lips which will help increase volume and size. Hyaluronic acid not only plumps the lips but it draws in water within the lips giving them a more natural, plump pout!

Does it hurt? 

While getting lip filler may be a slightly uncomfortable procedure, Dr. Patel offers a topical numbing application as well as an injectable numbing called a Dental Block to make the procedure very comfortable for her patients.

How long does it last? 

Lip fillers generally last 6-9 months depending on your lips shape, amount injected, your body's reabsorption rate, and your desire to maintain the results. 

What should you do after you recieve lip filler?

  1. Stay hydrated
  2. Gently apply an icepack to your lips (Avoid pressure)
  3. Avoid smoking 
  4. Do not do rigorouis physical activited that involves heavy lifting or sweating for a few days

Side Effects? 

While every patient is different here are a few side effects that can occur after getting lip injections. 

  1. Swelling or bruising 
  2. Infection
  3. Allergic reaction 

*Therefore, ALWAYS remember to make sure you are getting injections from a Board-Certified Injector who understands the anatomy of lips!*
