One of the most popular cosmetic procedures over the last several years has been lip augmentation. Since our lips are often in the spotlight, it's no wonder some people would like theirs to appear more full, youthful, or even. There are a few different options to achieve this safely and effectively.
Premier patient care and aesthetic superiority are the priorities at Troiano Facial Plastics. Dr. Chelsea Troiano, MD and the entire staff are dedicated to providing our patients with the best lip augmentation in West Palm Beach, FL, as well as an overall luxurious experience.
Non-surgical lip augmentation or enhancement is performed by using dermal fillers. The goal of this technique is to sculpt the shape of the lips by adding back the structure to the lips that is lost with age, even out inherent asymmetries, and adding volume if it is desired. This is a minimally invasive technique that requires no downtime. Lip fillers that add volume should not be confused with neuromodulators, which smooth wrinkles by affecting the underlying muscles. A lip flip is achieved by using these neuromodulators along the upper lip. Sometimes, it is combined with lip filler to create the perfect pout.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule naturally found in the body and is used for hydration and lubrication. HA's molecular structure was taken to derive synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules which are now made in a sterile laboratory. This clean lab version that makes up lip fillers is able to create structure and volume in the lips by drawing moisture to the area. A fabulous effect of this action is that it is very hydrating to the skin of the lips. Because it was created to work with our bodies, there is very little risk of allergic reaction.
Revanesse Versa: This filler provides extremely smooth, natural-looking results and is made with very high-quality HA.
Restylane Kysse: A very durable yet still flexible lip filler, Restylane Kysse provides natural, subtle results that can last a year or longer.
There are many more filler options than those mentioned above. This is because of the different strategies used to hold the HA molecules together once inside the body. This technology varies from company to company and imparts different characteristics to the filler. During your consultation with Dr. Troiano, the proper filler to achieve your goals will be chosen.
Another option for lip augmentation is a lip lift, a surgical procedure where a precise amount of skin is removed between the nose and upper lip in order to reduce the length between these two structures and to reshape and lift the upper lip. This is performed with local anesthesia in the office, with strategic incisions to minimize scarring.
Enhancing the appearance of the lips can be a huge confidence boost for anyone who is looking for that extra something to look their best. Be excited about the lips you see in the mirror every day. Lip augmentation can provide:
In most cases, if you are seeking to enhance the look of your lips, there is an option that will suit your needs. Most of our West Palm Beach lip augmentation patients want to add volume to thin lips, address aging lips, sculpt more proportional lips, rid themselves of the problem of lipstick bleeding from their lips, or even correction of a “gummy” smile.
Dr. Troiano takes great pride in providing completely customized care for each patient, and this starts at a consultation. In addition to your examination for lip augmentation West Palm Beach facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Troiano, will get to know your story and your aesthetic goals to craft a complete treatment plan for your optimal lips. Once the best procedure is decided upon, your team will provide all of the necessary details from appointment scheduling and pricing, to the preparation details.
Results and recovery for lip augmentation will depend on which procedure is used. After lip fillers, your lips will be swollen for a few days, with the final results becoming visible in two weeks. With a surgical lip lift, the bulk of recovery takes two weeks. After two weeks, the majority of swelling will resolve and the incision can be covered with makeup. Final results settle in around 3 to 4 months with complete healing coming in around the one year mark.

We take steps to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during any lip procedure, including using topical numbing cream and local anesthetic for injectables or sedation in the case of surgery. Following Dr. Troiano's instructions for recovery can ensure that pain or discomfort will be minimal.
Lip augmentation procedures are considered very safe especially when performed by a qualified professional. Risks include, but are not limited to, swelling, redness, or infection.
While surgical lip augmentation is permanent, injectables typically last around six months to a year.
It's important to wait until any numbing agents have worn off, which usually takes about two to four hours.
The full cost for your lip augmentation procedure will be covered during a consultation since totals can vary depending on which technique will be used.
