There are a number of products that can make your lips look bigger.
Nothing adds to a women’s beauty quite like full, luscious, youthful looking lips. That’s why so many celebrities and lay-people from around the world turn to Dr. Salzhauer to achieve the perfect "lip look" they desire. Whether it is just a subtle accent along the lip edges or a complete lip makeover, Dr. Salzhauer knows just what it takes to make you look fabulous.
Here’s how he does it:
Temporary Lip Injectables
Most of the lip plumping products are temporary. The ones that we use the most commonly are called Restylane and Juvederm. They last anywhere from 8 months to one year. They’re very safe: they generally don’t cause lumps and bumps, they’re very smooth, and they look great. The only problem is that they don’t last forever.
Permanent Lip Injectables
There are other products that last longer. Silicone, which lasts forever, can be injected into the lips. However, permanent products that are injected tend to cause more problems in the long run because your body creates a little scar tissue around it, and it can create a little bump or a little lump. It can be visible, it can be painful, and it can be very annoying. And the problem is once you put something permanent into your lips, it can only be removed surgically. There’s no injection that can get rid of it.
Plus, injecting silicone is not FDA approved for aesthetic purposes. They do it in Europe, but again we see a lot of Europeans and South Americans that do come into our practice with injected silicone that needs to be surgically removed. And it can be very messy.
Permanent Lip Implants (FulFill ™ Implant)
However, there is a new product that has just been approved called the “FulFill? lip implant. It’s like a little saline breast implant for your lips. It’s basically a tiny lip-shaped implant that is inserted through a hidden incision. The procedure takes about 20 minutes. The implant fills up with saline, so you can adjust it to the volume you desire. The lips can actually be tailored with the patient awake, looking in a mirror to give you the exact augmentation that you want.
