Lovely and Luscious Lips Can Be Yours!
Lip Fillers at Premier Plastic Surgery Center
Considering any cosmetic medical procedure is a very personal decision. Your lips are a particularly intimate and prominent feature and should only be treated by a top-tier provider.
Lip fillers are injectable products that can alter your lips size, shape, and texture.
Today's most effective and popular lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural protein-based substance produced by your body and has amazing hydrating and plumping properties.
As you age, your natural HA production declines, causing your skin to thin out and your lips to lose volume. HA fillers can beautifully restore that volume and even exceed your youthful lip fullness if desired.
Lip Fillers can be added gradually until your desired results are achieved and may prevent the need for invasive procedures such as a lip lift or implants.
According to the FDA, patients should be at least 21 years old, in good health, and have realistic expectations.
You cannot get lip fillers if you have an active oral infection, including cold sores or canker sores.
Other disqualifying conditions include:

First, a numbing agent will be applied to your lips. Then, a very thin needle will be used to precisely inject a perfectly calibrated amount of filler into your lips. You can use an ice pack periodically during your treatment to minimize bruising.
The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the desired volume and aesthetic goals of the Charlotte lip fillers patient.
After the procedure, your lips will be gently massaged to ensure the filler material has been absorbed and evenly distributed. Our staff will observe you for about 15 minutes just to make sure you are not experiencing any complications or side effects. After that, you are free to go.
Any lip discomfort should resolve in 12-24 hours, but you may have some swelling for a few days.
Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours. Don't wear lipstick or lip balm for two days. Drink plenty of water and be careful brushing your teeth!
Schedule a follow-up appointment two weeks after your procedure to make sure you are achieving your desired results.
Lip filler injections typically follow a timetable of swelling stages.
Your inflammation and swelling will be at its peak.
Inflammation begins to subside, but you may have some bruises and feel some lumps in your lips.
Your swelling should be almost gone, and you will begin to see the outcome of your procedure.
Your filler should be fully settled, and it will be time for you and your doctor to evaluate your procedure. If more filler is desired, additional injections can be performed in this time frame.
You will see immediate results, but it may take up to two months for the lip filler to settle in fully.
