Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Huntington, Long Island NY that provides lip augmentation to increase the size of the lips through a variety of surgical and non-surgical techniques to provide temporary or permanent results, depending on the type of material used. This procedure may be performed on one or both lips and offers patients noticeable yet natural-looking results through a single treatment session.
This procedure is often combined with others, such as a facelift or chin augmentation to achieve a fully rejuvenated, balanced facial appearance.
Lip Augmentation Procedure
There are several different options to enhance the lips, each offering patients different benefits. Injectable fillers such as Restylane®, Hylaform® and Artecoll® are performed on an outpatient basis and are injected directly into the lips for safe, noticeable results that can last for several months. Additional injections can help maintain the results of this procedure.
For more permanent results, implants can be placed in the lips during a surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. During this procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth to place an implant material taken from the patient’s own body, a donor or made from synthetic materials.
