What is a Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a procedure that can enhance the shape and size of the lips. Patients can also diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth with lip augmentation techniques. Many patients pursue lip augmentation treatments to achieve fuller, plumper lips. However, lip augmentation can also be used to reduce the size of the lips to improve overall facial balance. At Younger Image, we offer a number of techniques to help patients achieve their desired results through lip augmentation. We may recommend fat injection or reputable injectable products for lip enhancement.
How Much Does a Lip Augmentation Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of your lip augmentation procedure will depend on the technique used and the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. To schedule any treatment, we ask for a $1,000 deposit that is nonrefundable. Two weeks before surgery, the patient will have a pre-op appointment where his or her full balance is due to be paid in full.
We offer flexible financing options, including Alphaeon® and CareCredit® to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. Alphaeon® and CareCredit® pay us in full and the patient pays the financing company a monthly fee. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is the Lip Augmentation Procedure Like?
Your lip augmentation procedure will largely depend on the technique chosen for treatment. Fat injection procedures will require an extra step of harvesting and purifying fat from the body. For any technique, the treatment involves numerous injections into and around the lips. The injection process is relatively quick, and we use a topical anesthetic to minimize the pain during the injections.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from My Lip Augmentation?
The lip augmentation procedure is designed so that the results both look and feel natural while enhancing the appearance of the lips and the rest of the face. Patients will notice results immediately, and these results will improve further after swelling and any other effects fade. The results from lip augmentation are exceptionally long-lasting, with most patients enjoying their results for at least a year.
What is Recovery like Following a Lip Augmentation?
After a lip augmentation treatment, recovery is fairly quick and painless. Patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness around the treatment area that lasts for a few days. Typically, patients are able to return to work within a few days of treatment with minimal discomfort. We typically recommend that patients avoid exercise and other strenuous activities until they have fully recovered from treatment.
