Get Your Bloom Back
Full, shapely lips are a sign of youth and vitality that bring beauty to your entire appearance. Unfortunately, your lips can lose their fresh, full look as collagen production slows and the skin on your face shows signs of aging. You may notice your lips growing thinner and losing volume. At the same time, fine lines may begin to appear on the surrounding skin, causing the borders of the lips’ colored area, called the vermillion, to appear less defined and making it harder to apply lipstick evenly.
As part of our commitment to providing individualized care, we specialize in a range of lip augmentation treatments to help you put the bloom back in your lips. Read on to learn more about the many options available, or call us today to schedule your consultation with Reza Bolourian, M.D., F.A.C.S. The entire Orange County Surgical Specialists team is here to provide an excellent patient experience and beautiful results.
Options asUnique as You
With lip augmentation Mission Viejo are patients at OCSS generally wish to add volume and define more shapely contours to the lips. This can be achieved via a number of methods that range from temporary to permanent.
Temporary lip fillers like Restylane, Hylaform, and Juvederm are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, where it acts as a lubricant. When injected into key spots on the lips, the hyaluronic acid formulation in these products draws moisture to the area, adding volume.
If you are seeking a more permanent enhancement, PermaLip is a flexible implant made of silicone elastomer. PermaLip comes in a range of sizes, so you can choose the best implant for your lip shape and cosmetic needs. Unlike lip fillers, the PermaLip implant won’t be reabsorbed over time and delivers lasting results.
In a fat injection or fat transfer procedure, also known as autologous lip augmentation, a small amount of fat is taken from another part of your body, processed, and carefully injected to build volume in the lips. Because this method uses your own tissue, it comes with an exceptionally low risk of allergic reaction. This is also a temporary option but lasts longer than fillers—up to five years.
Lip augmentation performed by an experienced surgeon provides natural-looking fullness and shape to your lips, elevating the appearance of your entire face. Focusing on the lips lets you enhance your look using minimally invasive techniques that do not require much downtime. Lush, full lips convey a sense of youth, sensuality, and beauty that can provide a major boost in confidence. The range of augmentation methods available today allows you to select an approach that works best for your individual needs and goals.
Researching and selecting the best procedure to meet your needs can feel overwhelming. We are here to guide you through your options and answer all of your questions. Schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Bolourian today. The entire Orange County Surgical Specialists team looks forward to working with you to help you look and feel your very best.
Before your Mission Viejo lip augmentation procedure, Dr. Bolourian will outline the specific steps involved and make sure you understand any associated aftercare requirements or recovery time. Lip augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis in our in-house facility. Most augmentation procedures, such as filler injections, can be performed in an hour or less using a local anesthetic. Fat injections take slightly longer because of the added step of collecting the fat from the donor site and processing it prior to injection. Once your procedure is complete, you will be ready to return home the same day.
Lushness That Lasts
The results of injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) lip fillers last from six to eighteen months, depending on the brand. Combining an HA filler with CosmoDerm produces results that last slightly longer. Patients have seen fat injections last five years or more. The results from the PermaLip implant are permanent, but the implant may be removed if desired.
Dr. Bolourian will help you weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each option to ensure you get an outcome you love. With over twenty years of experience as a highly regarded cosmetic surgeon, he can craft natural-looking results to your specifications. With lip augmentation Mission Viejo patients love how their fuller, more beautifully contoured lips highlight their face and their other features, as well as the relative ease of enhancing their look in this way.
There’s Something About That Smile
Make sure to follow your aftercare instructions carefully, and contact us any time you have questions. Swelling and tenderness are typical for the first 24 to 48 hours. Residual swelling may take a week or more to subside. Depending on the type of augmentation procedure you had, your healing may be checked at a post-operative appointment. Following most types of lip augmentation procedures, you will be ready to return to your regular routine within a day or two.
Dr. Bolourian is a highly experienced surgeon with a keen understanding of aesthetic principles, facial structure, and treatment techniques. He will make sure your results line up with your vision, enhancing both the size and shape of your lips in a way that complements your appearance. Post-procedure swelling may cause your lips to appear overfilled at first, but this will soon subside.
The cost of lip augmentation varies depending on the method you choose, with options available to fit almost any budget.
