aging has caused loss of volume, you can have the lips you want with our customized Washington DC lip filler treatment.

Plump, Youthful Lips That Look Natural.

Lip Fillers Washington DC

When seeking lip enhancement, you want to be confident that your lips will look more attractive, but not overfilled or unnatural. It requires artistry to perform this treatment correctly, and Dr. Chang is committed to providing his patients with the results they are proud to show off. Various lip fillers are available, each with different uses and consistencies. What do you want to achieve?

  • Cupid’s bow
  • Restore lip definition
  • Fuller upper lip
  • Plumper lower lip
  • Both lips plumper and fuller
  • Plumper lip centers

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 Rhinoplasty 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.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated April 2nd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 24th.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until at least April 24th.
  • The office will be minimally or remotely staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.
  • No patient will have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
