Non-invasive, non-surgical lip augmentation with dermal fillers is designed for men and women to give lips more volume and definition in Atlanta at Astra Plastic Surgery. Discover the power of the pucker with lip augmentation by Lauren, PA-C., at Astra Plastic Surgery.
Lip augmentation is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of your lips by adding shape, structure, and volume for an enhanced appearance. The use of hyaluronic acid fillers is a popular option for lip enhancements. However, collagen and fat injections are other alternative approaches to plump lips.
Lauren, PA-C uses Juvederm as the hyaluronic dermal filler of choice because she has found Juvederm offers the following benefits:
Another benefit of using a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm is that it is made with a similar substance found in your body. Lidocaine is used to ease discomfort as you are receiving your lip injections. It is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. However, if you are allergic to lidocaine, please inform Lauren during your consultation.
It is essential to have a healthy and positive outlook on your lip augmentation expectations. Many people are not born with naturally full lips, but trying to mimic a celebrity may not work with your facial symmetry.
Your lower lip should be 50 percent wider and fuller than your upper lip. When fine lines appear around the border of your lips - known as the white line - women often find their lipstick bleeds, which often leads to much frustration. As you age, your lips lose fullness, causing an older-looking appearance. Astra Plastic Surgery offers lip enhancement solutions with a variety of treatments and procedures to volumize your lips.
Lauren creates a detailed treatment plan for each patient to determine what approach works best for you and gives you the aesthetic results you want.
Initially, she will assess your lips, take photos, and examine your lips to evaluate skin tone and appearance. During your procedure, your lips will be numbed with an anesthetic ointment or injected with local anesthesia. The entire procedure will take approximately 15 to 30 minutes.
After the procedure, you are provided with an ice pack to reduce swelling. You can alleviate any discomfort with over-the-counter pain medication as your lips may be tender for a couple of days. Most patients resume their daily activities with 24 to 48 hours. Initially, you may think your lips are overfilled, but once the swelling and bruising subside, you will observe your amazing results.
Your lip augmentation with Juvederm can last six months to one year. It may take up to two weeks for you to see your final results. Lauren will discuss with you about maintenance sessions to maintain a consistent appearance.

Lip augmentation is not without some level of discomfort. However, your lips are numbed either topically or with a local anesthetic. Afterward, you will have some swelling and minor bruising. If needed, you can reduce your pain with over-the-counter pain medication. The injections can also contain lidocaine to ease discomfort.
Complications with lip augmentation are rare, but some risks include prolonged swelling, lip asymmetry, infection, and scarring.
Lip augmentation price is customized for each patient. Cost is determined by many factors, such as the number of units of filler used and the type of technique used.
