Lip Injection FAQs
Am I a candidate for a lip enhancement procedure?
This is a natural and non-invasive process that involves chemicals that are found in the human body (though modern versions don’t have animal sources). Only in very rare cases is there any threat that the injection will irritate or be rejected by the body. With that said, there are certain conditions that could make you ineligible. Please schedule a consultation for answers about how the treatment may affect you personally.
Why do lips lose their plumpness?
Lips can lose fullness for a range of reasons including age, environment and occupational factors. Age, and how you age as determined by your genetics, is likely the largest factor. Most people lose collagen and other connective tissue as they age, and lose the ability to hold onto moisture. Hot, dry climates and occupations can also rob moisture from the lips.
How precise are the results of a lip enhancement?
The location and position of the gel injectable will be very precise, and based on a mapping of the lips and an examination of what location would provide the most natural-looking and pleasantly-appearing effects.
Will it look like I’ve had work done on my lips?
There is a short recovery period that may include some redness and swelling for the first few days after the procedure. After that, your lips will return to a normal look, but enhanced by the extra fullness provided by the lip injections. While people will recognize the difference, it won’t look bulbous or fake like the “work” from 10-20 years ago. Dr. Pavlou has performed thousands of lip enhancement procedures, and we are confident you will be very happy with his ability to deliver natural results.
What will be discussed during the consultation?
During the consultation, you’ll meet with Dr. Pavlou, who will help you understand the possibilities of the procedure and how your lips may benefit from injections placed in certain spots, and with how many applications. You’ll have a chance to ask any questions you like about the procedure, and to see some before-and-after pictures of our patients so that you can judge the potential for yourself.
