You look at your lips and decide that you would like to enhance their volume and improve their appearance. But you have also seen celebrities or others whose lips look noticeably altered or appear like “duck lips.” That may make you wonder if you can get natural-looking, attractive lips that give no hint that you had any augmentation done. The answer is that you can get the lips you want with the advanced lip augmentation procedures Dr. Mariano Busso performs at his Miami aesthetic dermatology offices. Dr.
One of these techniques is the use of injectable lip fillers that create larger, fuller, and more youthful appearing lips during a quick, minimally-invasive outpatient procedure that involves minimal downtime before and after the treatment. Dr. Busso is a world-renowned leader in the use of fillers, and his skill and experience produce unmatched results for patients seeking to improve the appearance of the lips.
But before you call Dr. Busso to arrange for your lip augmentation consultation or lip filler treatment, here are four important things to know before getting lip fillers:
- Know who is treating you. The outcome of your lip filler treatment is dependent on one factor more than any other: the skill and precision of your physician. If the procedure is performed by someone who lacks experience, care, and caution, that increases the likelihood of disappointing results or the “duck lips” that often scare people away from lip fillers. Do your research in advance so you feel confident that the doctor you choose has the background, testimonials, and track record that shows that they know how to use the right amount of fillers, injected in the right places, to ensure that you get balanced and natural-looking results.
- Know what results you want. Increased volume is great. Too much or too little volume is not. When you meet with your physician, tell him or her what you want to see after your treatment. If there are specific issues you want to address or a look you want to achieve, let your doctor know so you can both be on the same page as to what it is you are trying to accomplish in terms of volume and appearance.
- Prepare yourself. Any post-injection bruising can be avoided or minimized by ensuring proper blood flow and supply to your lips to allow for quicker and more effective healing. Stay away from any medications or other substances that have blood-thinning effects. During the week before your treatment, avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or Aleve, multivitamins or vitamin E. Also, stop consuming caffeine or alcohol during the 24 hours before and after your treatment.
- You may need to come back. While you’ll notice the results of your lip filler treatment in a matter of days, the fuller lips you now have will only last for about six months. If you want to maintain those results, you will need to go back for multiple treatments. It is entirely safe to continue injections indefinitely, but make sure you’re prepared for the costs of ongoing treatment.
