Do you feel self-conscious about your lips? Are they too thin, or has time deflated them and made them wrinkle? Fortunately dermal fillers and facial fat grafting can give you the beautiful lips you deserve.

Rejuvenate Your Lips

Time takes a toll on the lower face by creating fine lines and wrinkles on the lips and around the mouth. Habits like smoking and too much sun exposure can make these signs of aging worse. Many patients may not know that there is a solution for wrinkled lips that does not require an extensive recovery period or surgical intervention. Dermal fillers are a great way to smooth the lips for a naturally more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used to volumize the lips and create an attractive shape, even if there was none there before. 

What Lip Filler Options Exist?

At Zenn Plastic Surgery, our Master Injector Tara Cypher RN, MSN, CANS, primarily utilizes lip fillers with an active ingredient known as hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is naturally found in the body and it helps cells stay hydrated, which in turn keeps the skin supple and youthful-looking. HA fillers provide great looking, realistic results, and can be reversed if necessary. 

While Tara is well-versed in a variety of fillers, both HA based and not, these are her most common choices:

  • Restylane® - provides definition and lift to the lips without distorting the lips’ natural shape
  • Juvéderm® Ultra XC - features a slightly higher concentration of hyaluronic acid for even more plumping action
  • Volbella™ - provides natural-looking augmentation with the long-lasting results

What Are Results Like?

Lip fillers are not permanent solutions, and require consistent maintenance. The duration of each filler varies based on the composition of the filler and the patient’s metabolism. Lip filler results can last from 4 months to a year. When the results of your lip fillers start to diminish, it’s time to return to Zenn Plastic Surgery for additional lip augmentation treatment. Many of our patients undergo lip filler injections on a regular basis to keep their plump lips looking youthful and attractive. If you are looking for a more permanent outcome, fat grafting performed by Dr. Zenn might be the solution for you.

The Lip Consultation Process

The first step in lip beautification or rejuvenation is a one-on-one consultation with Zenn Plastic Surgery’s Advanced Nurse Injector, Tara Cypher RN, MSN, CANS. Tara will determine the type of lip filler best suited to your needs. She will inquire about your aesthetic ideals and take a look at your medical history. Next, Tara examines your lips to study the look alone and in relation to your other facial features. She will also show you before and after photos of other patients to see what kinds resonate with you the most.

Is Lip Augmentation Painful?

The lips are one of the most sensitive parts of the body. Patients undergoing lip injections at Zenn Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, North Carolina, typically receive a topical numbing agent to lessen any potential discomfort. Additionally, the filler itself contains a numbing agent that works immediately. Numbness from the injection and the topical cream usually last for an hour.
