Lip Enhancement Aliso Viejo

Lip enhancement by Dr. Face

It seems that full, shapely, well-defined lips are all the rage lately. If you want a more youthful, sensuous, fresher look to your face, lip enhancement by Dr. Robinson at Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery can give you that and more. Lip enhancement is a simple filler procedure that enhances your lips by giving them a fuller, shapelier, more sensuous appearance.

Injectable dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane are the most commonly used methods of lip enhancement, or lip augmentation. The most common fillers available are products that contain hyaluronic acid or similar ingredients. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body and, in hyaluronic acid fillers, it also increases the volume and plumpness of your lips.

There was a time when collagen was the most popular dermal filler, but it is far less common now because today’s fillers are considerably safer and give you longer-lasting results. Other lip enhancement methods include fat injections and lip implants, but results vary and those methods come with a greater risk for side effects – unlike today’s hyaluronic acid fillers.

Longer-lasting, effective hyaluronic acid fillers

The effects of hyaluronic acid fillers typically last about six months. Over time, your body naturally absorbs the filler material and your lips gradually shrink back to where they started – unless you have follow-up treatments. Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

  • A more sensuous shape
  • Firmer structure
  • Greater volume
  • Youthful plumpness, poutiness

There are several hyaluronic acid fillers currently available. Among them are Restylane®, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk, Juvéderm® Ultra, Juvéderm Ultra Plus and Kybella®. They are all injected the same way and offer similar results. Some even contain lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

  • Control lip volume

We control the amount of each injection, so we can determine exactly how much lip volume is created.

  • Gradual treatment

The injections can be given gradually during different appointments until the desired results are achieved.

  • Bumps dissolve easily

Any lumps and bumps created by movement of the lips can be dissolved easily.

  • Less bruising than other methods

Typically, there is less bruising and swelling when compared to other types of dermal fillers.

  • Lasting results

Results typically last up to about six months, but they are not permanent. To maintain your full lips, you will need follow-up treatments about every five to six months.

  • Allergic reactions unlikely

Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from substances similar to those occurring naturally in the human body, so they are unlikely to cause allergic reactions. Be sure to tell Dr. Robinson if you are allergic to lidocaine before treatment since lidocaine is used in some dermal fillers as a local anesthetic.

A Quick Procedure in Dr. Robinson’s Office

Injectable lip augmentation is performed quickly in our office, typically with very little downtime. After your dermal filler treatment, you may use ice to ease any discomfort and reduce swelling. Avoid applying any firm pressure on the treatment area until you have healed, and avoid using lipstick or ChapStick® immediately after the procedure. It’s likely that you will notice the difference in your lips right away. And your lips will feel natural after they have healed.

Dr. Robinson and staff welcome patients from Aliso Viejo, Irvine, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo and nearby areas.

Patient Testimonials

Dr. Robinson changed my life...

Dr. Robinson changed my life. He was recommended to me as I had never had any type of work done and he exceeded my expectations. The procedures that Dr. Robinson performed clearly took 15 years off. I am 55 and I constantly get shocked responses from people who think I am 15 years younger. The work was subtle and my experience with the surgery and the healing process was very positive. I cannot thank Dr. Robinson enough for giving me back my youth.
