Do Lip Fillers Damage Your Lips?

Plump, luscious lips are increasingly popular across the country for adults of all ages. For those who seek an elegant, natural-looking lip enhancement, lip fillers offer a variety of benefits. Lip fillers are cosmetic injectables that create attractive lip volume. When performed by an experienced and qualified injector, lip enhancement is refined and subtle, never overdone.

Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Smith, our practice is committed to providing exquisite results that enhance your appearance as well as your confidence and quality of life. If you desire lush, full lips, contact us today to learn how we can help.

Can Lip Fillers Harm Your Lips?

For the vast majority of patients, lip fillers provide a temporary, natural-looking enhancement that is safe and attractive. While there are extremely rare cases of more pronounced side effects, the treatment is resoundingly safe. At Smith Plastic Surgery, we perform lip enhancement with Juvederm, a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that safely and effectively improve the appearance of flat, thin lips.

Immediately following Juvederm treatment, patients may experience some swelling, bruising and tenderness at the injection site. However, these effects are temporary and should quickly subside after a day or two. For most patients, the benefits of lip enhancement far outweigh these minor inconveniences. When performed at Smith Plastic Surgery, lip enhancement with Juvederm is remarkably safe and effective, providing benefits such as:

  • Quick treatment sessions: You can achieve your desired look in just one visit.
  • Instant results: Fullness begins to emerge as soon as the lip filler is injected, and your results will continue to improve over the next few days.
  • Long-lasting, but not permanent results: While results vary, most patients enjoy their lip enhancement outcomes for nine to ten months. Unlike lip implants, if you don’t absolutely love your results, no problem: the effects will eventually dissipate safely and naturally without touch-up appointments.
  • Natural-looking results: When you choose Smith Plastic Surgery, you can expect a subtle finish that is subtle and beautiful. Your lips will look full and luscious, not “worked on”.
