Lip Injections in Los Angeles, CA
As we age, our lips may become thinner with less volume, making us look hard and unnoticeable. At Beverly Hills Breast and Body Institute, board-certified plastic surgeon Jaime S. Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S., treats patients in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, CA, along with surrounding cities, with lip injections to contour and shape lips to look fuller and more visible.
What are Lip Injections?
Lip injections are a cosmetic treatment where injectable dermal fillers are used to plump and reshape the lips. Most commonly, dermal fillers and injectables containing hyaluronic acid (HA) are used for lips. In fact, there are fillers specifically designed for lip enhancement, such as Restylane® Silk.
Benefits of Lip Injections
Not only do lip injections increase self-esteem, they offer several benefits:
- Restore balance to the face
- Prevents lipstick from bleeding into vertical lines around the mouth
- Improved lip texture
- No downtime or recovery period
- Immediate results
Are Lip Injections Right for Me?
If your lips have become thinner and uneven, or if the texture is rough and dry looking, you may want to consider lip injections. The procedure is quick and painless and shows immediate results.
How are Lip Injections Performed?
Dr. Schwartz determines where to inject the filler into the lips so that he can ensure they are proportionate and natural looking. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete, and results may last up to a year depending on the filler used. It is important to note that while most patients complete the process in only one treatment, it is better to under-inject than to over-inject so that patients achieve the look they had in mind without having overly inflated lips.
Lip Injection Recovery
Many patients return to their normal activities immediately following lip injections, although some wait a day to let any discomfort subside. We recommend abstaining from any vigorous exercise or anything that raises the blood pressure for a few days following the treatment to prevent any swelling.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost?
The cost of lip injections varies with each patient, depending on the objective of the procedure and if other treatments are to be done at the same time. Our financing page provides details about payment options.
