How Much Bigger Can the Lips Get With Lip Fillers?
With the rise in popularity of lip fillers, it is hard to deny the role a person’s pout plays in their overall appearance. Having fuller, more luscious lips can help to balance out facial features, improve symmetry, and restore a more youthful, desirable look in general. While some patients are hoping for discreet, subtle changes to their lips, others prefer a more dramatic transformation. With a skilled and experienced aesthetic injector, both outcomes are possible, though there are a few things to keep in mind when determining “how big” to go with your lip fillers. At Beauty & Fly Aesthetic Wellness in Bronxville, NY, board-certified family nurse practitioner and nationally recognized aesthetic nurse practitioner Catherine Elizabeth Curtin helps patients achieve their ideal lip size and shape with dermal filler injections. Here, you’ll find the answers to many of your questions about lip fillers, including just how much fuller of a look may be possible for you.
How do lip fillers work?
Lip fillers are cosmetic products that can be injected into the lips and/or the area around the mouth to make natural and youthful-looking improvements to the size, shape, symmetry, and other characteristics of a person’s mouth. The treatment itself typically takes 30 minutes or less to complete. To begin, Catherine will discuss the patient’s specific concerns and goals in order to determine the most appropriate filler product and amount to use. A topical numbing agent will then be applied to the lips to help keep the patient comfortable during treatment. Once the lips are adequately numbed, Catherine will strategically inject the filler at various points in and around the lips. To ensure the smoothest look and feel possible, Catherine may manually massage or manipulate the filler product between injections.
Is there a maximum amount of lip filler that can be used in a single appointment?
Patients hoping to dramatically boost their lip volume often ask, “What’s the biggest I can go with lip fillers?” The answer varies from person to person and depends on a variety of factors, including the patient’s current lip volume and anatomy, if they have existing lip fillers, and others. While stunning transformations can certainly be achieved during a patient’s first use of lip fillers, it may be necessary to gradually plump up the lips over a series of appointments in order to achieve the patient’s ultimate goals – particularly if they are hoping for a significant size increase. Injecting too much lip filler product too soon can lead to complications, discomfort, an unnatural appearance, and the over-stretching of the lips. During your initial consultation for lip fillers, Catherine will create a long-term treatment plan that helps you achieve your ideal look as safely and comfortably as possible.
