Full and shapely lips are a universal sign of beauty. Unfortunately, many of us are either born with thin lips, or they have lost their volume due to the natural aging process. In either case, lip injections with leading facial plastic surgeon Dr. James M. Ridgway offers the ideal solution – naturally enhancing the size and shape of your lips to create a more beautiful overall appearance.
What can lip injections accomplish?
The lips are a central facial feature. As such, when you are not happy with their appearance, it can affect your entire look. Fortunately, lip injections are a safe and extremely effective way to:
- Improve the appearance of a naturally thin upper and/or lower lip.
- Restore lost volume to the lips.
- Enhance the look of lips that disappear when you smile.
An overview of lip injections
Dr. Ridgway uses dermal fillers, such as Restylane, to create his patients’ ideal lips. To begin, he will cleanse the treatment area and apply a numbing cream to ensure your comfort and safety. He will then inject the dermal filler directly into your lips using an ultra fine needle, expertly sculpting the full and luscious lips you’ve always wanted.
Your beautiful results will be apparent immediately after treatment. However, there will also be some swelling, which can be minimized by applying cold compresses. In addition, you may experience mild redness, pain, bruising and tenderness in the treatment area, though these effects will disappear within two weeks.
