Lip Enhancement

Louisville Lip Augmentation Specialist – Dr. Lee Corbett

Indications

Patients seeking lip enhancement have several options available. Today, injectable fillers are most commonly used. The most common reasons patients seek lip augmentation in Louisville are to plump the lips or to plump the wrinkles that from at the corners of the mouth.

Goals of Surgery

The goal of the procedure is to give a younger, fuller appearance to the lips. This is accomplished not only by adding volume to the lip, but by plumping and minimizing the wrinkles that form at the corners and around the lips.

Treatment and Recovery

Technique

After a local dental block has been placed, the upper and lower lip can be plumped with no discomfort. The corners of the mouth are often successfully treated as well in our more “mature” patients.

Recovery

The injectables available today, Restylane® or Juvederm®, both result in some mild redness but this can easily be covered with makeup. Otherwise, there is no recovery or downtime associated with lip augmentation in Louisville.

Results

Results are immediate. What you see in the office is what your result will be. This is a tremendous advantage as the patient can participate in the decision to add more or to decide what is enough. Both products last between 9 to 12 months.

Costs

Restylane® fees are $525 and Juvederm® fees are $675.
