San Antonio, TXLip Fillers

Looking for bigger lips? Lip fillers offered at San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery, delivered by master injector Cynthia Durieux.

Are a very popular and highly effective non-surgical option for patients who want to quickly and painlessly restore the natural volume of their lips or eliminate lines and wrinkles. Everyone wants plump luscious lips that add youthful vitality to their smile and help enhance facial beauty. However, the aging process of the body can cause the lips to lose their natural volume and shape. Even people blessed with beautiful naturally fuller lips may find that their lips are starting to droop and are losing their volume. A number of our patients also come to us because they want bigger lips and to address common issues including lip lines and wrinkles.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers is a minimally invasive procedure in which the lips are injected with fillers that can add volume to the lips to give them greater definition. Lip fillers can also help improve lip symmetry and address aging issues such as wrinkles and vertical lip lines.

The active ingredient in lip fillers is a compound known as hyaluronic acid (HA) which is naturally produced by the human body. It is for this reason that lip fillers are considered to be an extremely safe procedure.

What can Lip Fillers do for me?

Lip fillers can deliver a number of benefits including:

  • Natural-looking bigger lips.
  • Improved lip symmetry.
  • Short procedure requiring no downtime.
  • Better defined lips.
  • Results that are immediately visible.
  • End results can help enhance the overall appearance of your face.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?

Anyone who enjoys overall good health does not have any serious medical condition(s), and does not smoke can be a good candidate for lip filler injections.

It is also important that you have a realistic understanding and expectations of what fillers can achieve. People who should avoid lip fillers include people who are diabetic, suffer from autoimmune conditions as well as active infections, are allergic to local anesthetic and suffer from blood clotting issues.

Lip Filler FAQ

No. Lip fillers can cause mild discomfort but they are not painful. Before injecting the lip filler, a topical numbing agent or a local anesthetic might be used to reduce the discomfort. At most, you might feel the initial needle prick of the needle and pressure as opposed to pain.

Lip fillers require zero downtime.

Following the procedure, you can expect some degree of swelling and bruising which can last for a few days. However, these will gradually reduce and disappear. You will be provided with easy-to-follow instructions and precautions to help speed up recovery and to prevent any complications.

Although this is rare, some patients might want to reverse the results of their lip filler procedure. This can be safely done using a reversal agent such as hyaluronidase.

The results of HA lip fillers are temporary – you can expect results of your lip fillers to last anywhere between six to twelve months. Periodic treatment is required to maintain the results of your lip filler procedure.
