“Quack Quack!” That’s the sound you might think of when you think of lip injections. A quick stroll around town might call your attention to strange-looking, over-inflated lips. That is not the way it is supposed to be! Most people that visit our office looking for lip augmentation fear that the procedure will result in duck lips. If you are interested in natural-looking, fuller lips, look no further.
Unnatural-appearing lip injections are due to improper technique. There are many inexperienced individuals providing this treatment, which is why it’s extremely important to visit an experienced medical professional. Lips are naturally fuller in the center and taper at the corners of the mouth; duck lips occur when too much filler is injected at the corners. The goal of lip augmentation is to enhance what you have to give a natural, yet fuller, appearance.
New and improved fillers have become available to create a natural look. The fillers we use for lip injections are comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found in the body. During your appointment, we will numb your lips so there is no pain during the procedure. It is normal to see swelling for a few days, and you may experience some bruising. You can expect your new, natural lips to last for several months.
