About Lip Augmentation

Drhotlanta and Arslanian Plastic Surgery are pleased to offer a complete selection of dermal fillers that achieve beautiful, natural results. The product used for lip augmentation is typically derived from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the human body and known for its unique ability to retain as much as 1,000 times its weight in water!

Hyaluronic acid fillers are very safe and have an extremely low chance of complications. If you do feel unsatisfied with the results achieved with a filler, there are quick-and-easy treatments for reversing the results of an injection.

The Juvederm and Restylane lines of dermal fillers are time-tested and recommended choices by Drhotlanta. Offering a wide variety of textures, densities, and formulations, Juvederm and Restylane consistently provide amazing results.

8 Quick Answers to Your Questions on Lip Injections

What is the best type of lip filler?

Juvederm and Restylane are the most popular choices for lip augmentation. Both are derived from hyaluronic acid and are used for a variety of anti-aging treatments.

What filler lasts the longest in lips?

Hyaluronic acid fillers can last between six months to two years depending on how much product is used. Juvederm and Restylane are both effective lip fillers that revitalize collagen structures, which add volume and fullness to the lips.

Am I a Candidate for lip fillers?

If you’re wondering whether or not lip fillers are right for you, it is always best to schedule an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon you trust. During your consultation with Dr. Arslanian, you will need to go over your recent health history and any cosmetic treatments you’ve had. You should be in good overall health and have reasonable expectations of what lip augmentation can accomplish for you.

Together, you and Dr. Arslanian will create a tailored treatment plan that will best achieve your goals, but also be appropriate for your body.

How much does lip augmentation cost?

You’ll receive a customized quote for your lip augmentation treatment at the end of your consultation. Every treatment is 100% tailored to the individual and is priced according to the amount of product required for their goals and whether or not additional treatments are included.

Are lip fillers permanent?

No, lip injections are made from hyaluronic acid which typically lasts at least 8 months to a year.

Are lip injections painful?

The injection itself is uncomfortable for some, but topical numbing is available to maximize your comfort during the injection. If you are worried about pain or bruising after, a cold compress and pain medication is available to give you the most pleasant experience possible.

Do your lips feel hard after lip fillers?

Some swelling is to be expected after your injection, but this should resolve within a day or so. After that, your lips should feel natural to the touch.
