What to expect from your first lip augmentation

We can't all be born with the gorgeous lips of a movie star. And to fair,a lot of movie stars weren't born with their luscious lips, either.

To get the perfect pout, or simply regain the lip volume of your youth, you might need a little help. Lip augmentation is a noninvasive, simple procedure that can help you look your very best.

Who should consider lip augmentation?

If you're unhappy with the volume of your lips, then this procedure is for you. Whether you were born with thin lips or have lost some definition with age, this simple procedure can help you achieve your desired look. As we age, our bodies lose collagen at a rate of about 1 percent each year. A subtle filler can help you maintain a youthful look without the need for invasive surgery.

A skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Marotta understands how lips are structured, so you know you'll get a natural look from this procedure. By working with an experienced, licensed professional, you can avoid an uneven appearance.

What is the procedure like?

When you meet with your plastic surgeon to discuss lip augmentation, he or she will help you understand what options are available to you and help you better define your aesthetic goals. Your surgeon will help you choose an injectable filler that's approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The procedure itself is quite simple. The surgery staff will apply numbing medication to your lips before injecting the filler in strategic locations. The surgeon will be able to see the results of the injectable immediately, so he or she can adjust the amount needed as necessary.

The process is mostly painless, and you can take an over-the-counter pain medication if you feel uncomfortable afterward.

How long is the recovery process?

Immediately after receiving the lip augmentation procedure, you will notice some swelling and redness. Most of the swelling will subside within a few hours of youleaving the office. Over the next three days, you'll see the rest of the swelling and redness dissipate. Slight discomfort is expected, but it shouldn't hurt too much.
