As we age, our lips may lose the volume becoming thin and barely noticeable. This gives the impression of a stern or terse appearance, not to mention a loss of a prominent sign of femininity. At Core Plastic Surgery, Grady Core, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon, uses lip fillers on women living in and around Birmingham and Mountain Brook to plump lips and add definition to give a softer facial appearance.
Lip fillers are the most popular way to enhance the lips using dermal fillers developed to increase the fullness and add definition to the lips. Injectable fillers for the lips contain hyaluronic acid that adds moisture to the under-layers of your lips. Lips become thin with age and can make someone’s face look hard and tired. When fillers are injected into the lips, they soften your facial expression and make you look younger.
As one of the most popular method to enhance the lips, after lip fillers Birmingham patients can expect the following benefits:
If you are unhappy with the way your lips look and feel, you may be an excellent candidate for lip fillers. It is essential that you have a realistic attitude about what you want and how your lips should look following the treatment.
Lip fillers involve injecting the dermal filler into the targeted areas of the lips then massaging them to ensure the filler is evenly spread. At this point, if necessary, your Birmingham lip fillers provider at Core Plastic Surgery can recreate definition around the lip line. If necessary, you may apply small ice packs to your lips to minimize any swelling at the injection sites.
After lip injections Birmingham patients can return to work or their daily activities, as there is no recovery or downtime. Any slight redness or swelling resolves itself within a day.
Lip filler results are noticeable immediately after the injections. Since the fillers contain hyaluronic acid, it takes a few days to a couple of weeks to see the final results. Depending on the filler used, lip fillers can last up to a year or more.
The cost of lip fillers in Birmingham varies with each patient considering several factors, including the filler used, how many injections are needed and whether lip injections are performed in conjunction with other MedSpa treatments. We go over the costs along with payment and financing options through CareCredit®.
