Lip Enhancement Washington, DC
Lip enhancement is a cosmetic surgery procedure which can add fullness to thin lips, reduce a long upper lip, and decrease wrinkles around the mouth. Lip implants and filler injections may be used to add fullness to the lips while a lip lift or lip advancement may be used to improve the appearance of a long upper lip or thin lips. Good candidates for lip enhancement include healthy patients with thin lips or a long upper lip. Implants are often ideal for patients who have tried filler injections and are now seeking a more permanent solution.
Dr. Naderi performs lip enhancement procedures in his office and at the INOVA system hospitals which include Fair Oaks Hospital, Loudoun Hospital, Fairfax Hospital, and Mt. Vernon Hospital. Filler injections may take as little as fifteen minutes to perform while lip implants, lip advancement, and lip lifts may take thirty to forty-five minutes to complete. MAC (monitored anesthesia care) or local anesthesia using a dental block may be used.
For lip implants, a small incision is made inside of the corners of the lips. For a lip lift or lip advancement, the incision may be made underneath the base of the nose or along the lip vermillion border. For lip implants, Dr. Naderi uses Advanta which is a soft Gortex implant and is safer than Alloderm implants and has a much more natural feeling than previous generation Gortex implants (feels like strips of marshmallows).
Recovery after most filler injections is minimal while lip implants, lip lifts and lip advancement involve a recovery of about five to seven days. Depending upon the specific procedure, some swelling and bruising may occur. Any pain that patients experience can be controlled with medication. Patients can usually return to work right away after a filler injection procedure or within seven days after a surgical procedure.
