Even though it seems like Thanksgiving was just last weekend, we’re hurtling toward another big holiday: Valentine’s Day. Around the country, couples are secretly shopping for the perfect gift to get their significant other. Unfortunately, this is harder than it seems, which is why a lot of people end up playing it safe with flowers and chocolate (these are fine, don’t get us wrong, but can be a bit forgettable).
This year, instead of getting something your special someone can’t even use, why not treat them to a gift of a lifetime? Perfect, kissable, pouting lips. If there’s one day of the year your lips matter most, after all, it’s Valentine’s Day.
What’s more, the perfect pout isn’t only a gift for your partner; it’s for you, too. Research has shown that Americans who choose to undergo cosmetic procedures to better their appearances are happier, with higher self-esteem on average. You’ll be able to bring your best self to everything you do, from the office to date night. That’s what makes Valentine’s Day the perfect time to try out lip augmentation. Our FDA-approved fillers are only demi-permanent, and if you don’t love the results, your lips will return to normal in six months to a year.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a permanent enhancement, we can make it happen, too. Lip augmentation with implants and fat transfer both provide stunning, natural-looking lips you’ll adore.
Lip augmentation is well-suited for patients of all ages. Whether you’ve recently lost some lip volume due to the body’s slowing collagen production, have always had thinner lips, or are curious about what fuller lips could look like on you, Dr. Parkins can help in time for Valentine’s Day.
The Natural, Subtle, Fuller Lips You Want: Non-Surgical Fillers
Lip augmentation has stepped into the spotlight recently, with many of the world’s biggest celebs like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Hudson, and Kylie Jenner all openly admitting to getting (and loving) lip fillers. Still, our patients often come to us worried their lips will look too puffy or pronounced after lip augmentation. Dr. Parkins takes special care to ensure every patient’s procedure is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece crafted to subtly highlight and complement your natural features.
Dermal fillers allow for a high degree of customization. Dr. Parkins can create a dramatic enhancement or a subtle boost in volume to give you a youthful, perky pout. At our medical spa, we offer a range of filler brands depending on the treatment area and the results you want. In general, we recommend these for lip enhancement:
- Juvéderm® Ultra
While all the fillers we offer work based on a similar principle, their chemical makeup can vary slightly. This variation makes some fillers firmer (thus suited for areas like the cheeks), or softer and more pliable (best for lips). During your consultation, we’ll discuss all the pros and cons of each brand to determine what’s right for you.
Whichever you pick, your filler treatment will provide instant results with no necessary downtime. Over the next few months, your body naturally absorbs the filler, returning your lips to their previous volume. If you want to maintain your pout over the long term, we can set up follow-up treatments or discuss permanent options like implants or fat transfer.
If you’re ready to commit to permanent lip augmentation, implants make a great option. Using FDA-approved SurgiSil™ implants, made of soft, solid, unshaped silicone, Dr. Parkins can create lasting fuller lips. She inserts the implants via tiny incisions in the corners of the mouth, leaving no scarring.
Patients can also combine their implants with fillers for even greater customization. If you currently have fillers and want to make the switch, we’ll need to wait for your body to completely reabsorb them before we schedule your surgery.
We recommend fat transfer lip augmentation to our patients who want a permanent enhancement, but don’t think implants or surgery are right for them. During a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Parkins takes fat tissue from other areas of your body via liposuction, then carefully purifies and reinserts the fat to create a natural-looking and feeling fullness.
