Lip Augmentation Treatment Fort Myers
Do you have thin lips? Do you wish your lips looked fuller and plumper? There’s an easy way to achieve your desired look with no surgery involved. In Fort Myers, lip augmentation treatment is available at Elmquist Eye Group.
Hyaluronic acid fillers
The FDA has approved a hyaluronic acid filler called Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body. In fact, it is one of the main components of connective tissue. The gel-like substance provides a matrix structure for surrounding cells. Because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally within the body, the substance is easily accepted
Adults over age 21 are candidates for Juvederm use, a safe and effective treatment for adding volume to the lips. The product plumps thin lips to add fullness. Many people have naturally thin lips, while others have experienced thinning lips over time, mainly attributed to aging.
The large majority of patients are very pleased with the results of their Juvederm injections. The effect usually lasts six months, so there is no need for frequent injections. Furthermore, the injections come with lidocaine, a local anesthetic that provides a pain-free experience.
Juvederm works well for lip enhancement, and that is why Elmquist’s own Dr. Yasaira Rodriguez prefers its use. Dr. Rodriguez specializes in the cosmetic procedures offered by our Elmquist team, and she is also a comprehensive ophthalmologist who specializes in both cataract and glaucoma surgeries.
The Elmquist excellence is the difference
Dr. Rodriguez offers an array of medical cosmetic injections like JUVADÉRM® and Restylane®. Both of these treatments offer non-surgical rejuvenation and dermal fillers to give our patients a fresh new look.
Lip augmentation and enhancement involves Dr. Rodriguez adding volume to the corners of the mouth and below the lip area to give you a fuller but still natural look. She will often also add volume to the chin and jawline as well.
We use the best topical ointments before the surgery to provide numbing of the area to be injected, and application of ice throughout the procedure to reduce discomfort and swelling. Preparation for the surgery is easy. You may have to discontinue certain medications like aspirin, ibuprofen or blood thinners for a few days prior.
Steps you need to take after the procedure are easy as well. You may need cold compresses for a few days to reduce swelling, and we ask that you avoid drinking alcohol or wearing lip products like lipstick or balms for about one week.
When considering cosmetic procedures, remember that not all doctors are equal. It is important to spend time selecting a doctor. Education, training and experience are all important factors to consider. You need a well-trained experienced specialist, and Dr. Rodriguez certainly fits that description.
