Lip Augmentation in Denver, CO at Atagi Plastic Surgery and Skin Aesthetics
For patients looking to flaunt fuller, more voluptuous lips, treatment options have traditionally been limited to procedures with temporary results. While dermal fillers can provide a boost in fullness for some patients, Atagi Plastic Surgery and Skin Aesthetics also offers an FDA-approved lip augmentation procedure for noticeable results and plumper, fuller lips with minimal downtime.
Lip augmentation in Denver uses soft and pliable silicone-based implants in the upper and lower lip to create the patient’s desired shape and fullness. These implants cannot rupture or break, and can also be removed at any time. With lip augmentation in Denver, every patient is treated on an individual basis, with customized implant sizes for an appearance that appears natural while still drawing attention to their new features.
Lip augmentation procedures are performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, and can be completed in under an hour. A small incision is made at the point of the lip where the wet and dry parts meet, so scarring is hidden from view. Patients may bruise at the incision site; however, bruising can be minimized with herbal medications such as Arnica Montana. Patients can expect to resume normal activities the following day.
Lip Augmentation in Denver, Colorado can address:
- Naturally thin lips
- Thinning lips due to the aging process
- Uneven or unbalanced lip fullness
Frequently Asked Questions about Lip Augmentation in Denver, CO
How does lip augmentation work?
Lip augmentation procedures work by inserting a small, pliable silicone–based implant into the lips. The implants are customized to meet each patient’s desired shape and fullness.
When can I expect to see my results?
Results can be seen after the treatment, although you may appear to be swollen, so true results can take two to three weeks.
What if I am unhappy with my new appearance?
Lip augmentation implants can be removed at any time, so patients can revert to their previous appearance rather easily.
Is there any downtime?
You can expect to be swollen and bruised for the first five to seven days. There is almost no downtime following the procedure, and patients are encouraged to resume normal activities the day after their procedure.
