Achieve fuller, more youthful lips

Whether you’re looking to enhance lip fullness, smooth wrinkles around the mouth, or restore lost volume, we offer innovative treatments using advanced techniques and FDA-approved products like Restylane Silk.

With our personalized approach and commitment to natural-looking results, you can trust us to deliver the beautiful, confident smile you desire.

All areas of our face can show the signs of aging, including our lips. Thinning of the lips and fine wrinkles (“marionette lines”) around the lips edge are common as we get older and our bodies start producing less collagen. 

Dr. Ronan is proud to be offering the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth. Contact us today to make an appointment and embark on your journey to lip transformation!

WHAT IS RESTYLANE SILK?

WHAT IS RESTYLANE SILK?

Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid used to temporarily add volume, resulting in a fresher, more youthful appearance. Restylane Silk’s formation is made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products. This along with an ultrafine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results.

Lip Augmentation via Fat Transfer

Lip augmentation via fat transfer is a quick procedure for enhancing the lips, and replenishing a woman’s facial balance. A lip augmentation can also minimize the amount of wrinkles around the mouth. Fat transfer uses the body’s own tissue, offering a supple, and natural look to lips, that lasts at least a year, or even permanently. With age, lips lose plumpness and become noticeably longer and thinner, creating a sense of distance from the nose that elongates the look of the face. Many women are naturally drawn to a more youthful look. Fuller, plumper lips along with diminished lines, can help create the desired look for a younger radiance, and appeal. Celebrities and models both on and off the set are enjoying fuller lips, decreased lines, and beautiful smiles to help them feel more attractive. Lip augmentation is a desired enhancement enjoyed by even those who are not behind the camera, and crave a more confident, beautiful appearance.

BENEFITS OF LIP AUGMENTATION

  • Fuller looking lips
  • Younger looking face
  • It enhances your smile
  • A repeatable procedure
  • Minimally invasive – no surgery!
  • Very fast recovery

PROCEDURE DETAILS AND RECOVERY

Lip Augmentation can be completed in two ways, either through filler injections or through a transfer of body fat to the lips.

The fat transfer process is the removing of fat from another part of the body, usually the abdomen or thigh area, and injecting the fat directly into the lips with needle sticks. Lip augmentation is usually performed in combination with another procedure, such as liposuction or facial fat tansfer. For lip augmentation, a local anesthesia is administered. Recovery time time can be a week or two.

Beginning on the corner edge of the bottom lip, Dr. Ronan inserts a needle and moves it across the lip, increasing the amount of filler/fat the needle releases as he moves to the center of the mouth. He then repeats on the other side to create a shape that mimics a naturally full lip. As an outpatient procedure, recovery time is only minutes to a few hours before returning to normal activities.

Fillers have a minimal recovery time but the few side effects of a fat transfer include: swelling, some bleeding, and a token amount of pain. Considering a facial fat transfer for the lips is a smarter choice over injectables because it uses the body’s own healthy tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions: Lip Fillers & Rejuvenation

How long do lip fillers last?

Depending on the type of filler used, most patients experience long lasting results from 6 months up to 18 months. After the initial swelling period of around two weeks, your beautiful shape will reveal itself .

How much do lip fillers cost?

Lip filler treatment is charged per syringe. The cost varies depending on what type of product is used, but you can expect to pay between $425 and $750 . Half syringes are available for those requiring minor touch ups where full syringe(s) are typically used to provide adequate correction or enhancement.

Is filler good or bad for lips?

Most dermal fillers used in treating lips are hyaluronic based products. Because our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, there is very little chance of the body reacting negatively from the filler itself. The injection, however, can cause bruising, swelling and slight bleeding at the injection site temporarily.

How bad does lip filler hurt?

While pain tolerance does factor into the level discomfort felt, most patients report very minimal pain with lip injections. Most lip filler products are mixed with lidocaine to further enhance the comfortability. It may be worthwhile to ask your injector if a topical lidocaine can be applied prior to injecting if you are nervous and ice packs held over the treatment area can make a significant difference as well.

How painful are lip fillers after?

Swelling, itchiness, redness and bruising is more common than pain after lip filler is injected. Some patients report mild discomfort in way of tenderness (like when pressing lips together) for a short period of time after injection. Ice packs can help with all of these potential concerns should they occur.

How many rounds of lip filler do I need?

Most hyaluronic lip fillers can last 6 months to a year (or longer in some cases). Depending on your desired outcome, touch up appointments may be required during this time frame for maintenance. Otherwise, every 6-12 months is the usual and customary time frame for most patients to receive lip injections.

How much lip filler should I get first time?

Depending on your desired outcome, half a syringe or a full syringe may be suggested for your initial lip filler injection appointment. From there, patients can return for additional filler should they want a more enhanced look. Some patients may require two syringes during their initial treatment only to return months later for a touch of using a smaller amount of product.

What are the cons of lip fillers?

Bruising, swelling and discomfort can occur after injection sites following lip filler injections. Although these are temporary, it is worth noting and the levels of each are dependant on each patient, what type of filler is used, and how much product is administered.

Do lips go saggy after filler?

No, lips will return to their natural state once the injected filer has dissipated over time. Stretching and sagging should not be a concern when seeking to receive lip augmentation.

Do lips stay hard after lip filler?

Lip filler will remain soft and natural after the initial swelling dissipates. The injection sites can feel hard and lumpy at first as this is the bodies natural response system.

How much is half a syringe of lip filler?

Most lip filler syringes are delivered in 1 ml syringes. Most offices carry half syringes, or 0.5 ml syringes, for minor touch ups and those requiring a very small amount of product.

Will lips go back to normal after filler?

Most lip filler injections are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance produced naturally by the body. Over time, the body will slowly absorb the product and return the lips to their natural shape.

Does lip filler last the first time?

Lip filler metabolizes at different time intervals for each person. Manufacturers recommend reinjecting between 6-9 months to keep the fuller shape and volume delivered. However, some patients see benefits up to 12 months post initial injection.

How often should lip fillers be redone?

The results from lip filler can last up to 12 months, but the usual and customary time period that patients return for reinjection is between 6-9 months. This helps to preserve the enhancement and keep your lips looking youthful.
