Love Your Lips with Lip Augmentation

Kramer, Lips - Image As plastic surgery continues to evolve, certain trends, procedures, and treatments have become increasingly popular. One thing is for sure, the demand for non-surgical enhancement continues to grow—CoolSculpting®, laser skin resurfacing, and injectables are all highly requested at Kramer Plastic Surgery. That said, there is one treatment that stands out as a patient favorite, lip augmentation using injectable fillers.

Why Is Lip Augmentation So Popular?

Patients choose to enhance their lips for many reasons. Topping the list, of course, is to achieve fuller, larger lips. However, lip augmentation can also balance uneven lips and can even reduce the appearance of fine lines around the mouth.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Lip Augmentation?

An ideal candidate for lip injections is someone who is dissatisfied with their current lip size, and hopes to achieve a plumper pucker. Injectable lip enhancement is just as effective at adding a natural fullness for those with thin lips as it is for men and women hoping to enhance their already thicker lips by creating a more pronounced pout.

What Is the Lip Augmentation Treatment Like?

Nowadays, enhancing your lips here in Boise is simpler than ever before. To start, we will numb your lips using a topical anesthetic. Depending on your goals, a series of injections are placed across the lips to insert the filler. While you may feel a slight pinch, lip augmentation is generally considered to be very comfortable.

What Is the Best Filler for Lip Augmentation?

Many of our patients favor hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, like Juvéderm®. Emphasizing a natural fullness, hyaluronic acid fillers are wonderful for the lips as they are able create a look that is both balanced and smooth. You can see the beautiful results for yourself by taking a look at our before and after gallery.

What Is the Recovery Period with Lip Augmentation Like?

The recovery process for lip injections is minimal. Your lips are likely to be numb immediately following lip augmentation procedure and they may appear swollen for a few days after. However, as soon as this initial phase is complete, you will be free to enjoy your now lusciously full lips. Love your lips at Kramer Plastic Surgery!
