Lip enhancement is a popular procedure for men and women who have thin lips, vertical lip lines, and other issues that make them feel self-conscious and less attractive. Dr. Balinger offers lip augmentation for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a procedure that adds volume to the lips, and it may be used to soften vertical lip lines and correct asymmetry. Lip augmentation can be performed with silicone implants or dermal fillers. Full lips balance out your features and draw attention to your smile and eyes. Lip enhancement is often believed to be beneficial for women only, but Dr. Balinger recommends the procedure to men, as well.
How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost?
The cost is based upon the type of lip enhancement that you choose during the consultation with Dr. Balinger. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.
What Are the Benefits of Lip Augmentation?
- Dermal fillers can be used to add any amount of volume to sculpt the lips
- Facial fillers soften vertical lip lines
- Silicone implants are long-term solutions for thin lips
- Dermal fillers can be used to try out a new lip shape and size before getting silicone implants
How is Lip Augmentation Performed?
For silicone lip implants, Dr. Balinger makes an incision inside the lip or along the outer lip line. The implant is inserted through the incision and positioned to produce the desired look. For lip augmentation with facial fillers, Dr. Balinger carefully sculpts and shapes your lips by making several injections.
What is Recovery Like After Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers requires no downtime. You may notice some swelling and tenderness at each injection site. If silicone implants are used for your lip enhancement, expect to have swelling, tenderness, and bruising for the first week or longer.
How Long Will Lip Augmentation Results Last?
Lip augmentation with dermal fillers lasts for several months or longer, depending on which fillers are used for the procedure. Lip implants are permanent, yet you can have them removed or replaced.
