Lip enhancement is among the most increasingly popular cosmetic treatment options. In the Detroit area, patients have countless options to choose from when it comes to undergoing lip enhancement, between both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Many patients turn to Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery for safe and high-quality lip enhancement with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rouchdi Rifai and our team of master injectors. Using only FDA-approved injectables like Juvederm, our team can help patients achieve the lips they want with long-lasting, natural-looking, beautiful results.
Nonsurgical lip enhancement involves injecting dermal fillers into the lips to create a fuller, plumper, or more symmetrical appearance. At Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery, this typically means using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers such as Juvederm to add natural-looking volume to the lips using safe, FDA-approved products. During a consultation, our master injectors will suggest the best dermal filler options for you.
Most patients who wish to adjust or enhance the appearance of their lips make good candidates for lip injections with Juvederm. The treatment can be used to:
- Create fuller lips
- Restore youthful volume
- Enhance symmetry in the lips
Lip injections are an easily customizable procedure. Our team of master injectors will work to understand your unique cosmetic goals, tailoring the amount of product injected for dramatic or subtle results according to your preferences and natural facial proportions.
Before undergoing lip injections, patients should be generally healthy overall. Those with certain medical conditions or concerns, including infections such as cold sores in the treatment area, should not receive lip injections. During a consultation, your injector will review your health history to make sure that the treatment is a safe option for you.
A talented, board-certified cosmetic surgeon with more than forty years of experience, Dr. Rifai uses only the finest equipment in our clean, state-of-the-art facility. Dr. Rifai knows that taking time to listen and learn about your expectations is essential to giving you the results you want. He will answer your questions and explain the treatment options in detail. Dr. Rifai is devoted to improving the way you look, the way you perceive yourself, and the way others see you.Meet Dr. Rifai
Lip filler injections can often be administered immediately following your consultation. A topical numbing agent may be applied to keep you comfortable through the procedure. However, this is not always necessary, as many filler products including Juvederm contain lidocaine within their formulas. The filler product will then be injected using fine needles, meaning that the process causes only minor discomfort.
One of the benefits of nonsurgical lip enhancement using injectables is that the procedure requires no downtime. Patients can immediately return to their normal routines after the procedure if they choose to do so. However, some visible side effects may be noticeable, including redness and swelling. Bruising and some bleeding are also possible, though less common. Patients often feel some sensitivity in the treated area, which should dissipate quickly. Your injector will advise you to avoid drinking alcohol, smoking, strenuous activity such as exercise, or applying pressure to the injection site, as these increase the risk of unnecessary bruising, bleeding, or other unwanted side effects. During your consultation, your injector will provide specific aftercare instructions.
Lip injection results are not permanent. Patients can receive maintenance injections about every six months to keep up their desired look. A long-term treatment plan can be determined during your consultation.
