Lip injections are a common cosmetic procedure that can give patients fuller, plumper lips. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected into the lips and around the mouth, but the most common fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers. These products contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance found in the body. Hyaluronic acid fillers are able to improve the shape, volume, and structure of the lips. The results typically last up to six months, gradually decreasing.
At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we offer different types of hyaluronic acid fillers for our patients. Dr. Benjamin Stong is a dual board certified plastic surgeon who has the expertise needed to know which type of filler will best achieve the desired results for each of his patients. All of the fillers available at Kalos are injected the same way and give patients similar results. Some of the fillers also contain lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic to make the injections less painful and uncomfortable.
There are benefits for patients who choose to have hyaluronic acid filler injections. Once these fillers are injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips. Dr. Benjamin Stong is able to control the volume of the lips during the injections because of the immediate effect of the gel injections. There is also a very unlikely chance that a person would have an allergic reaction to the fillers since the substances used are so similar to those found in the body naturally. If you would like to set up an appointment to discuss your options for lip injections, call Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC today. Your appearance matters to you, therefore it matters to us.
