Lip Augmentation

Thin lips, whether you inherited them or are a cause of bad habits, are common complaints Dr. Amy Kulak sees in her patients. If you are one of these people who are located in the Florida area, we would love to help you. Dr. Kulak is a board-certified oculofacial surgeon specializing in lip augmentation, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, and many more procedures.

When is Lip Augmentation Needed?

A common complaint of our patients is that their lips are just too thin. This can be caused by genetics or other factors such as smoking, aging, and even sun damage. Deflated-looking lips can make you look older than you are and can make you self-conscious about your appearance. Thin lips can also be a thing of the past with lip augmentation.

Treating Thin Lips

Lip Augmentation can alter the appearance of your lips and make them appear fuller, giving you a more youthful appearance. Some standard options for lip enhancement can include:

  • Temporary lip fillers
  • Semi-Permanent Lip Fillers
  • Permanent Lip Fillers
  • Lip Implant
  • Lip Augmentation

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip Augmentation is the procedure that gives you fuller and plumper lips. It is common for doctors to insert a dermal filler to make this happen. Many types of fillers can be used, but the most common types are hyaluronic acid products. This is a natural substance that is found in your body and can help increase volume in your lips.

Uses of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

These types of fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:

  • Volume
  • Shape
  • Structure

The effects typically last around d 6 months for most patients; after that, you would need more injections to keep up the appearance.

Benefits of Lip Fillers

Once the filler is injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips.  Several benefits of using this type of filler include:

  • control over lip volume
  • gradual pace of treatment
  • bumps dissolve easy
  • less bruising
  • reasonable lasting results
  • minimal allergic reactions

What to Expect

If you are looking at getting lip injections, you may be wondering what to expect. These procedures are performed rather quickly in the office with little or even no downtime.

Before the injection, the doctor will apply a topical or local numbing agent to ease discomfort. Then the area is carefully marked where the injections should be placed. Next, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips. Following injection, you may be given ice to ease the discomfort and help with swelling.

What Are the Risks?

There are some severe and minor risks associated with these procedures, including:

  • Bleeding at the injection site
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Lumps and irregularities in lips
  • Allergic reaction

Please discuss all side effects with your doctor before you decide what procedure is correct for you.

Dr. Kulak did a fabulous job. She repaired a very large gaping hole where my mother’s eyelid wise. Dr. Kulak was able to do so without using a skin graft, which greatly shortened the recovery time. Now, my mother’s eyelid looks virtually the same even though about 75% of it was removed. We are extremely pleased with Dr. Kulak’s professionalism, attention to detail, concern and care. Highly... recommend her more
