Full lips are a key element in every beautiful photo or magazine advertisement. Due to their distinct color and importance in both verbal and non-verbal communication, the lips are often the focus of our attention. Most people are not genetically blessed with full, naturally beautiful lips. The aging process, sun exposure, and smoking all reduce the natural beauty of your lips.
Who is a Candidate for Surgical Lip Augmentation?
Healthy men and women who desire a permanent solution for plump, luscious volume to their lips may be perfect candidates for surgical lip augmentation.
What is the Recovery Like from Surgical Lip Augmentation?
What is Recovery like from Surgical Lip Augmentation?
Surgical lip augmentation is performed in an outpatient setting, with most patients returning home after only a few hours. Dr. Kenneth Yu uses a very soft and natural appearing implant called PermaLip®. This implant produces a very natural appearance of the lips and is both safe and permanent.
Prescription pain medication may be required for the first few days. Mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising are common the first week or so after surgery. Most patients feel confident returning to their public and social lives in 7-10 days. Dr. Kenneth Yu reduces bruising and recovery time with the use of homeopathic and herbal options. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.
