Lip Injections in Manhattan, NYC & Long Island
Do you wish that you had fuller lips that look natural? Board-certified plastic surgeon, Craig Baldenhofer, MD, recommends lip injections as an alternative to silicone lip implants. The technique is preferred by men and women in Manhattan, New York City and Long Island.
What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that adds fullness and definition to the lips. Traditionally, lip augmentation was performed using silicone implants. The procedure requires an incision inside the mouth, so patients have a recovery period during which their lips are very tender and swollen. The results can look unnatural because the implants come in standardized sizes. Advances in dermal filler formulations allow plastic surgeons to more precisely shape the lips without surgery.
What are Lip Injections?
The benefits of dermal fillers give patients a better option for lip augmentation. The gel formulations are administered with a degree of precision that cannot be achieved with silicone implants. The active ingredients in the fillers also hydrate the lips and soften vertical lines around the mouth.
What are the Benefits of Lip Injections?
Lip injections allow us to correct common problems with the lips, such as:
- Thin lips
- Lines around the mouth
The enhancement can be as subtle or dramatic as the patient desires. Because the dermal fillers are not permanent, the patient can try out changes without having to undergo surgery. Dermal fillers require no downtime.
Who is a Good Candidate for Lip Injections?
If you want fuller lips while maintaining a natural appearance, lip injections may be right for you.
What Should I Expect from Lip Injections?
Dr. Baldenhofer has chosen Restylane® Silk and Belotero® for our lip injections. Restylane® Silk is specially formulated for lip enhancement, and Belotero® is used to soften vertical lines around the lips. He uses micro-cannulas for the procedure to allow him to have greater control over the positioning of the dermal filler gel. Micro-cannulas require fewer insertions into the skin, so patients may experience less severe symptoms after the treatment when compared to needle administration.
