Lip augmentation is a transformative procedure that enhances your lips, giving them a fuller, plumper appearance while reducing wrinkles around your mouth. Dr. Stella at The Stella Center offers a range of methods for lip augmentation, including lip implants and filler injections, to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results for our Seattle patients. If you desire youthful, plump lips with fewer fine lines, exploring the benefits of lip augmentation could be the right choice for you.
Lip augmentation is ideal for individuals who wish to fill out naturally thin lips or achieve better balance in the size of their upper and lower lips. Additionally, older patients looking to reverse the effects of thinning lips due to aging can also benefit from this procedure.
Lip lines can be effectively addressed through various treatments. Lip injections using dermal fillers can instantly smooth away vertical lines around the lips without any downtime. Surface treatments like microneedling and ResurFX™ laser resurfacing are also excellent options to tackle these lines.
When considering lip augmentation, choosing a skilled and experienced professional is paramount. Dr. Stella Desyatnikova, with her board certification in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, is dedicated to providing her patients with enhanced lip appearance and improved facial balance. With a deep appreciation for facial beauty and extensive knowledge, she employs her expertise to deliver outstanding, natural-looking results in this popular procedure. Whether you opt for a temporary enhancement with injectable fillers or a longer-lasting approach with lip implants, Dr. Stella ensures your desires are met with expertise and precision.
Lip injections, a popular choice for lip augmentation, typically take less than an hour at Dr. Stella's Seattle office, ensuring a convenient and efficient procedure. Local anesthetic is used to enhance comfort during the process. Dr. Stella employs dermal fillers like Restylane® for subtle improvements in lip shape, effectively minimizing bleeding lipstick lines.
For those seeking a longer-lasting approach to lip augmentation, lip implants may be the perfect choice. During this procedure, Dr. Stella makes small incisions at the corners of the lips and inserts a soft silicone rubber implant. While temporary swelling, tenderness, and bruising may occur, the results provide a beautiful enhancement.
The longevity of lip filler results depends on the specific filler used. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® lip injections provide results for up to 1 year, while other fillers offer lasting effects for about 4 to 6 months, ensuring a lasting enhancement.
