Lip Injections in Philadelphia, PA
Full, pouty lips are something many women have difficulty maintaining as they age. One solution for thinning lips is lip injections performed by our board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Raymond D. Jean. Main Line Plastic Surgery, serving patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania, offers a variety of lip injections designed to plump the lips and help restore lost volume.
What are Lip Injections?
Not all dermal fillers are injected into the face, as a good number are designed for use in the lips. They work just like other dermal fillers do, smoothing lines and adding fullness to provide a younger-looking appearance.
The lip injection treatments we offer here at Main Line Plastic Surgery include:
Am I a Good Candidate for a Lip Injection Treatment?
The answer to this question is very likely “yes.” Lip injections are extremely safe, meaning that nearly anyone can take advantage of them.
Planning your Lip Injection Treatment
Very little preplanning is needed before a lip injection. Just make sure you do not have any canker or mouth sores on the day of your procedure, and we can easily get you in and out of our office on your lunch hour. You should also not wear any lipstick or lip balm on the day of your appointment.
How are Lip Injections Performed?
By injecting a predetermined amount of filler into the top lip, bottom lip, or both. Depending upon the results you desire, Dr. Jean may inject a tiny bit of product into more than one area of your lip to provide more even, natural-looking results. For example, you may receive an injection in the center of your lip as well as in the corners.
How Much Do Lip Injections Cost in Philadelphia?
Medical spa procedures such as lip injections are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® works like a credit card, offering low-interest rates and easily affordable payments to help you afford lip injections on your terms.
What to Expect* after Lip Injections
Some fillers provide results almost immediately, while others can take a few days to begin working. Dr. Jean will discuss the various timeframes with you during your consultation so that you can choose a filler that best suits your needs.
Recovering from Lip Injections
Your lips may be tender, numb, or tingling for a few hours afterwards. During this time, avoid sucking on a straw or applying lipstick. Once this numbness goes away, you can then resume your normal activities without worry.
