What is a Lip Augmentation?
If you want to get lip augmentation in Tampa, you should visit cosmetic surgeon Dr. George Solomon at Solomon Cosmetic Center. A lip enhancement procedure can improve the shape and fullness of your lips. There are several different fillers that can be used for this procedure including Radiesse, Restylane, and fat injection.
How Is Lip Augmentation Performed?
Before Dr. Solomon begins the procedure, he will apply a numbing agent to your lips to minimize discomfort and pain. After he marks the areas that need to be injected, he will use fine needles to inject the fillers into your lips. Once the procedure is done, your doctor will apply ice to your lips to minimize swelling and ease discomfort.
Who Is a Good Lip Augmentation Candidate?
Lip enhancement candidates should be non-smokers and in good health. The candidates should also have realistic expectations about the results.
What are the Side Effects of Lip Augmentation?
There are several side effects, but they are normally minimal and last only a few days. Common side effects include bleeding, swelling, bruising and tenderness. More serious side effects include infection, lumps, scarring, and lip asymmetry. If you experience the more serious side effects, you should contact Dr. Solomon immediately.
Recovering from a Lip Augmentation
Although you might experience a little swelling and bruising, receiving a lip augmentation is not cosmetic surgery, you can return to work the next day.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Various lip enhancement treatments last for different amounts of time. For example, Restylane lasts for about six to nine months while Radiesse can last for up to a year. Injected fat cells from a fat transfer can be permanent although those cells will continue to age over time.
