Just like the rest of the face, the lips are susceptible to unwanted changes due to aging. Over time, they lose volume and change shape, and can also be affected by wrinkles around the mouth. When this happens, women in particular may become self-conscious about the appearance of their lips. Board Certified New York City Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj offers revolutionary Lip Augmentation treatment techniques that go beyond the traditional injections and filler methods to produce beautiful, long-lasting and natural-looking results. Under his expert surgical hand and keen eye, many NYC lip augmentation patients have attained youthful, voluminous lips they desire.
What is Lip Augmentation Surgery?
Lip Augmentation Surgery at Dr. Slupchynskyj’s New York practice is different from other Lip Enhancement procedures. Unlike other procedures which use temporary injectable fillers to create volume, Lip Augmentation Surgery is a permanent solution, which improves the look of a patient’s own lips. Rather than use synthetic implants, Dr. Slupchynskyj raises the location of the upper lip, exposing more pink lip area and creating a wider, healthier looking smile. Dr. Slupchynskyj may supplement the final result using fillers such as Juvéderm®™; however, the most visible and attractive results come as a result of his unique surgical techniques. Dr. Slupchynskyj knows that bigger doesn’t always mean better when it comes to Lip Augmentation. He evaluates other facial features before performing Lip Augmentation Surgery so that he can create results that provide a favorable, youthful look.
How is Lip Augmentation Surgery performed?
Dr. Slupchynskyj uses several surgical techniques for Lip Augmentation in NYC. During a thorough pre-surgery consultation, he will evaluate the patient’s existing lip shape, underlying dental work and jawline, as well as other facial features to determine which treatment approach is best suited for them. All Lip Augmentation Surgeries are performed under local anesthesia.
Recovering from Lip Augmentation Surgery
New York City Lip Augmentation patients may experience minor swelling, stiffness and discomfort immediately following surgery. Dr. Slupchynskyj provides detailed post-operative instructions to all patients to ensure a speedy, safe recovery. He will also prescribe medications to manage any pain or risk of infection after surgery. Patients should apply cold compresses to the lips the first few days after surgery. Most Lip Augmentation patients recover fully 10 days after the procedure.
The Benefits of Lip Augmentation Surgery
Lip Lift Surgery can be performed on its own or as the finishing touch to a complete facial rejuvenation treatment. The procedure can restore a patient’s youthful appearance and reduce or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. Dr. Slupchynskyj’s approach to Lip Augmentation is particularly beneficial because it is a safer, more natural-looking treatment. Surgical lip enhancement is a more permanent solution than injectable fillers or fat injections alone. The procedure can be completed in about one hour, but can make years’ worth of difference in a patient’s appearance.
