Lip Augmentation NYC

The lips are arguably the most alluring feature on a woman’s face. They can create an immediate and lasting first impression and can greatly enhance your overall beauty.

Frown lines and thinning lips not only make us look older, but they can also make us look unhappy or unpleasant. Lip augmentation in NYC provides a solution to thin or aging lips, making them fuller, plumper and more defined.

What is lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a minimally invasive, short “lunchtime treatment” that provides instant results. Lip augmentation is an injectable procedure using lip fillers, such as Restylane or Juvederm. Based on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Westreich can provide a subtle boost to your lips and smooth wrinkle lines around your mouth, or create a dramatically plumper pout in minutes.

Why choose Dr. Westreich?

Dr. Westreich’s experience and expertise as a lip enhancement specialist makes him one of the most trusted authorities on lip augmentation in New York City. When deciding to undergo a lip enhancement procedure, it is important to consult a specialist who is aware that the treatment can leave a patient looking fake, with “duck lips” or a “trout pout.” Dr. Westreich has been recognized as one of the best lip enhancement specialists in NYC and is determined to give his patients the most natural looking results. He understands that symmetry and balance must be maintained in each patient’s facial anatomy, and has the necessary experience to determine exactly which formula to use, how much to inject, and precisely where the site of injection should be. Because each of these factors can range from patient to patient, they must be custom tailored to fit your entire look without drawing negative attention to your new, luscious lips.

Am I a candidate for lip augmentation?

Patients who want to reshape, enhance and plump their lips without a surgical procedure are likely candidates for lip augmentation in NYC. Patients must meet the following requirements for lip fillers:

  • Are 21 or older
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no active rashes or skin concerns such as cold sores
  • Are not allergic to the ingredients of the filler

Preparing for lip augmentation

Before your lip augmentation, avoid any blood-thinning medications, plucking, tweezing, waxing or anti-aging products. You can start taking arnica a couple of days beforehand, as this will help with any possible bruising.

Recovery and aftercare

One of the best benefits of non-surgical lip augmentation is that no special recovery is required. Avoid manipulating the lips for 2-3 hours after injections. Typically a 20% enlargement is noted in the first 24 hours due to swelling.You can ice the area if needed, but your lips will return to the desired volume within 1-2 days, and any feeling of lumpiness will fade over the next week or two.

How long do the results last?

The length of time your lip augmentation lasts depends on the type of filler used and the rate at which your body metabolizes the filler. For most patients, lip fillers last between 6-12 months. Lip fillers will slowly fade as the months pass, and you will notice your results beginning to diminish. Most patients have regular appointments to maintain their new pout.

Cost of lip augmentation

The cost of your lip augmentation injections will vary from person to person, depending on which filler you use and how much of it is required to achieve your desired aesthetic goals. Discussing your goals in an in person consultation is the best way to find out what the investment would be to create your aesthetic goals.

Combining procedures

Lip augmentation can be easily combined with a number of other procedures. Facial fillers for the face to sculpt the cheekbones and jawline, a brow lift, eyelid surgery, a liquid facelift, liquid rhinoplasty, and a number of other procedures can be done simultaneously with lip augmentation to give you a beautiful, natural enhancement to your appearance.

Lip Filler FAQs

Can you reverse the results?

Lip fillers are reversible if you are unhappy with the results or would like less of an enhancement.

Can I wear lipstick after lip augmentation?

Yes, but we recommend waiting a day, as the area can feel slightly tender just after treatment.

How painful is the treatment?

Most patients do not describe lip augmentation to be overly painful because the needle used is extremely fine, but you will feel a pinch as the filler is injected.

How much swelling is there after lip augmentation?

Swelling is normal after lip augmentation, peaking in about two days and easing fully after two weeks.

Is lip augmentation safe?

Lip fillers are FDA-approved and are considered safe, but side effects such as swelling or bruising can occur.

Is there any downtime after lip fillers?

No, there is no downtime and you can get right back to your usual activities or work afterward.

Will I look natural?

With a doctor who has expertise and experience, your appearance should look very natural.

Which fillers are used for lip augmentation?

Dr. Westreich typically uses Juvederm, Restylane or Botelero to help achieve your perfect smile.
