What to expect?

The procedure for nonsurgical lip augmentation is relatively quick and easy, and most people only require a single session to achieve their desired results. However, it is important to be aware of what to expect. During the procedure, your injector will numb your lips with local anesthesia.

Once your lips are numb, they will carefully inject the filler into strategic points around your mouth. The exact placement of the injections will depend on your individual goals and desired results. Most people report minimal discomfort during the procedure, and the entire session usually takes about 30 minutes.

What is the recovery from lip augmentation?

After the procedure, you may experience mild bruising, swelling, and redness around the injection sites. These side effects are typically short-lived and should resolve within a few days to a week. You can apply ice packs to help reduce any discomfort. It is also important to avoid rubbing or massaging your lips for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Overall, lip fillers are a safe and effective way to achieve fuller, more voluptuous lips. With proper aftercare, you can enjoy your results for months or even years.
