Aging wreaks havoc upon the lips, and the skin around the lips. A face that once looked fresh, vital, and alluring can begin to sag, with the lips losing volume. This situation can make you feel less attractive and assume that others perceive you as older. Why not use the latest advances in aesthetics to create the look you want?
Types of Lip Fillers
Each lip filler works differently. We have briefly outlined the various lip fillers we use to help our patients feel and look their best.
With two different products, Restlyane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, these dermal fillers can produce beautiful results when increasing lip volume. These are hyaluronic acid fillers were developed with a special patented process called XpresHAn Technology to maintain natural facial motion. For many people seeking lip augmentation, a Restylane product will be appropriate. These products are also very effective in smoothing smile lines, lip lines, and creases from nose to mouth corners.
Juvéderm Ultra XC:
The advantage of this product is not only the soft, natural look, but the longevity. While many lip fillers last only about three to six months, Juvéderm Ultra XC lasts longer – up to a year or longer, for fewer treatments and beautiful results. Made from hyaluronic acid, this filler feels soft and natural, and keeps your lips looking plump and full – as you envisioned.
Your Lips and Aging
Unfortunately, as we age, the lips begin to change. The definition may become blurred, and the lips look less full and plump. While some have naturally thin lips, others are very unhappy with the appearance of vertical lip lines, and thinning lips, and want to do something about it.
Dr. Christopher Chang is a highly-respected, board-certified plastic surgeon, known for his ability to create truly natural-looking results. If you are struggling with the look of aging lips, you have more options than ever before. You can have the plump, fresh lips of youth in only a short appointment. The idea is to subtly increase volume as a facial enhancement that signals vitality and youth – and looks like you, at your best
What to Expect: Treatment with Lip Fillers
When planning lip augmentation, you need to avoid certain medications and supplements. Any blood thinning products should be avoided, including alcohol, fish oil, ibuprofen or aspirin. The idea is to avoid bruising. Eat healthy food and drink lots of water in the week prior to your treatment – and always.
You will first have a topical numbing product applied to your lips to make the treatment more comfortable. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes for your lips to numb. An ice pack may be applied prior to injection to further numb the area. You may experience slight discomfort, a pinching sensation. The lips are very sensitive, but each injection lasts only a few seconds, and the needle is very fine. After injections, your lips are usually about 20 percent larger than they will be once the swelling diminishes. Swelling usually lasts for three days at most.
Artistry in Lip Enhancement
When augmenting lips, you want to be completely confident that your vision is understood, and that the result achieved is as you expected. We are very proud of our reputation for excellence in facial enhancements and strive to achieve the most beautiful results. In lip enhancement, at our DC clinic you can expect artistry and meticulous care in augmenting lip volume – and it makes a difference.
Never submit to lip plumping at a cut-rate spa, or with a discount coupon – we have seen the sad results of a poorly performed treatment and are often called upon to correct poor outcomes. Choose a highly-skilled, respected plastic surgeon to oversee your procedure. Your lips are a very important facial feature, and you can trust us to treat them with ultimate care and attention.
"I have never felt so confident. Dr. Chang completely changed how I saw myself in the mirror. I was terribly self conscious of my nose from my youth and finally decided to go through with the surgery. Not only was it inexpensive compared to the other three doctors I contacted, the before and after pictures of patients were also much better looking than the others! The whole process of surgery and recovery was quick and pretty much painless. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery. It really made me a happier person." - Catherine M.
"My son was in a terrible accident with most of the bones in his face and skull broken... I don't know what I would have done without Dr Chang!! My son is fully recovered and back to his old self again. I love Dr Chang, he will be in my prayers for the rest of my life. Thank you!" - Elizabeth A.
"I cannot say enough about my surgery with Dr. Chang! I had full facial Rejuvenation including a facelift brow lift and upper eyelids done 4 months ago. I also had a chemical peel to my lower eyelids and mouth. They was barely any pain and I was back to work the next week! I am so thrilled and my friends are so impressed. I cannot say enough about my experience! He is both caring and an amazing surgeon! Thank you so much!" - Cathy W.
The entire experience and outcome was everything I hoped for and I cannot thank Dr. Chang enough! He is a true pro and I recommend 100% without reservation!" - Ashley R.
"I went to Dr. Chang to correct the damage done to my breasts from pregnancy and breastfeeding. He went above and beyond to make me comfortable and to explain exactly what the procedures (lift + implants) would entail. He was extremely responsive and truly understood the look that I was trying to achieve - full, natural for my frame, and with minimal scarring. I'm only two days out from surgery and I'm already loving my results. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Chang to restore my chest to its pre-baby appearance. I actually think they are going to be better than they ever were before I had kids!" - Emily L.
