Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation With Dermal Fillers

The lips are often among the first areas in the face to exhibit early evidence of aging and sun damage. Thin, flat lips marked by vertical lines, commonly called “smoker’s lines,” give you a prematurely aged appearance even when the rest of your face still looks young. Lip injections replenish fullness and volume, restore symmetry, and add definition to the lips, while reducing the appearance of those pesky vertical creases around the edges of the lips. A lip enhancement treatment can quickly revitalize your entire facial appearance without much expense or fuss.

The most suitable filler injections will be used to create added plumpness and definition in the lips. You may choose from an array of dermal filler options and Dr. Bachilo will recommend the filler most suitable to your specific aesthetic needs. Options may include Juvederm XC or Juvederm Volbella, one of the newest fillers specifically indicated for lip and perioral area injections.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT DERMAL FILLERS MAY BE USED TO ACHIEVE LIP AUGMENTATION?

There are several lip injectables on the market to help augment volume in the lips and erase vertical lines around the mouth. Among the most popular are Restylane, Juvéderm Ultra XC, and Juvéderm Volbella XC.

HOW LONG DO LIP FILLERS LAST?

The longevity of lip injections depends on the type of lip filler used, but on average they last four to six month. Occasionally they may last up to a year.

WHAT DOES LIP FILLER DO?

Lip fillers help to define lip border and plump up the lip for a more attractive and full lip appearance.

CAN LIP FILLER BE REMOVED?

Yes, if you are not pleased with results of your HA lip filler, it can be removed with the use of injectable enzyme which will dissolve the filler completely. Also, HA fillers will naturally dissolve over time.

HOW MUCH DO LIP INJECTIONS COST IN HOUSTON?

Lip injections prices in Houston may vary from $450 to $800 per syringe. The cost of lip fillers depends on the product used and provider delivering lip injection.

WILL I FEEL LIP FILLER IN MY LIPS?

When lip injection is done appropriately, you should have natural soft feel to your lips. You may experience temporary sensation changes in your lips due to lidocaine (a numbing medicine) present in most fillers.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF LIP INJECTIONS?

As with any injections there is a risk of bruising and infection, which are minimal. There is also risk of asymmetry and need for additional injections. Your provider will discuss all risks and alternatives in details with you during your consultation.

DO LIP INJECTIONS HURT?

There is some discomfort associated with injectable treatments, but it is minimized with the use of topical anesthetic, ice and vibration distraction devices.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS AFTER LIP INJECTION?

You will see results immediately after your lip injection. There may be some swelling and bruising for a few days following treatment.

WHEN CAN I RETURN TO WORK AFTER LIP INJECTION?

You may return to work immediately after lip filler treatment with expectation of some swelling and bruising. Bruising usually can be covered by makeup.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE LIP INJECTION?

It is recommended that you do not take any medications that can increase potential for bruising for one week prior to your injectable treatment. This includes avoiding any aspirin and ibuprofen containing products as well as supplements such as fish oil and high doses of vitamin E. Tylenol is safe to take prior to injections.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER LIP INJECTION?

It is expected to experience some swelling and mild bruising after injectable filler treatment. These usually subside in few days to a week.

HOW CAN I MINIMIZE BRUISING WITH LIP FILLER INJECTION?

You can minimize bruising after lip injections by avoiding the use of aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil and vitamin E one week before treatment. You can also take Arnica supplements for a few days prior and a few days after treatment. You may use topical Arnica gel for any bruising that occurs.

ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES TO LIP FILLERS?

Threads can be used in the lips to produce subtle augmentation to lip and lip border. Fat injections, utilizing your own fat, can be done instead of use of HA fillers. Silicone lip implants may be used for a more dramatic augmentation.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor
Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.
cathouston

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

I recommend Dr.bachilo!!!

I Am so Thankful We Found Olga!
Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
