Get Fuller, More Luscious Lips

What are Lip Implants?

Lip implants involve placing soft, flexible silicone implants into the lips. These can give you fuller lips and can be done to the upper or lower lips. Most patients choose to do both lips if both the upper and bottom lips are thin. The result is a more balanced look to the lips with long-term results, unlike alternatives like lip fillers.

Am I A Good Candidate for Lip Implants?

You can likely benefit from lip implants if you’re dissatisfied with your lips’ overall look, balance, and projection. Many patients opt for lip implants to help correct asymmetry or because they’ve tried lip fillers in the past but want longer-term results. During a consultation, Dr. Rostami will review your health history to ensure lip implants will be safe and effective for you.

Benefits of Lip Implants

Lip implants are very popular because they produce immediate results, which can be subtle or dramatic, depending on the patient’s needs. Dr. Rostami can help you select from a variety of implant shapes and sizes to construct your ideal look. Additionally, they last for many years and don’t require touching up like lip fillers.

The Lip Implants Procedure

Lip implants can be performed in a very short amount of time using local anesthesia or sedation. Most patients have the procedure done under local anesthesia in the office. Dr. Rostami will create tiny entry points in the lip and place the implant accordingly. Afterward, you can return home to recover.

Lip Implants Results

Lip implants require a few days of recovery, during which you may experience some redness, bruising, and swelling. Dr. Rostami will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure you get the best results. With the proper aftercare, lip implants can last for many years and can easily be removed if needed.
