Testimonial: “Dr. Leong is AMAZING! I got lip fillers with him and he was so kind and knowledgeable, he explained everything in great detail. I was a little nervous, I really wanted it to look natural and that is exactly what I got. The process didn't hurt at all thanks to the dental blockers and local anesthesia and I had absolutely no bruising! I left the office with very little swelling, the next day my lips were a little bigger but that was to be expected. By the 3rd day my lips looked incredible, very natural just with a little extra volume. I am soooo happy, now I don't want to go back to my old lips! Will absolutely be back in a few months for my touch up!” – Andrea B.
Today’s beauty standards emphasize full, luxurious and ultra feminine lips. But what happens when the aging process depletes lip plumpness and causes thin distressing lines to appear? Perhaps it is time to consider a lip augmentation procedure with Dr. Leong in Morgantown WV, a proven veteran of facial techniques. Lip augmentation can help replenish youthfulness with a sexy, shapely pout.
What is lip augmentation?
There are several methods of enhancing the lips, and Dr. Leong will help you to determine the best approach for your goals and preferences during your confidential consultation in Morgantown WV. The first method is to use dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm or Perlane. These fillers are usually quick and painless, allowing you to undergo treatment over your lunch break. They can help to improve lip volume while reducing vertical lines and wrinkles. The lip silhouette and cupid’s bow can also be corrected with fillers.
The second method of lip augmentation is facial fat transfer. This procedure involves harvesting fat cells from a donor area such as the abdomen, thighs or hips, purifying the fat, and then reinjecting it into the lips for a natural-looking plumping effect. This treatment has the added benefit of streamlining and slimming the donor region, helping you to accomplish two cosmetic goals at once.
The third type of lip augmentation is done with lip implants. This can make a dramatic impact, and results are long-lasting. The downside is that lip augmentation with implants is a surgical procedure and may involve some downtime and discomfort.
Is there any downtime with lip augmentation?
Depending on the type of procedure used to amplify your lips, there may be little to some recovery required. With dermal fillers, there is no waiting; you will be able to return to normal activities right away. The same is true for fat transfer. If you are undergoing lip augmentation with lip implants, you may need to heal for around a week after your appointment. However, thanks to Dr. Leong’s conservative techniques, you will be enjoying your beautiful new smile in no time.
