What to Expect After Lip Fillers
Thanks to lip fillers, full, voluptuous lips are within everyone’s reach.
A transformative and affordable treatment, lip fillers are injected directly into precise areas of the lips to provide volume, contour and shape to the sexiest part of our faces.
As the treatment continues to grow in popularity, people are wondering what to expect immediately following the procedure, and how best to support their transformation after their procedure.
The Treatment is Fast
Most peoples’ lip filler appointment takes between fifteen to thirty minutes – which is why getting lip fillers is often called a “lunch break” procedure. Patients can immediately return to their routine activities after the procedure – just avoid touching your lips or any vigorous exercise for one to two days to allow the filler to set properly.
Your Lips May Look Overfilled
Immediately after receiving the injections, your lips will likely appear overfilled. This is normal because of minor swelling and bruising that occurs as part of your body’s healing response to the procedure.
Delicately applying an icepack to your lips will reduce swelling and any discomfort you may have. For most of our patients, swelling subsides within 48 hours.
The Results Won’t Last Forever
The dermal filling products used in lip filling treatments, like products used to treat signs of aging, are designed to breakdown gradually over time. For this reason, your lip-filling results won’t last forever.
How long they last depends on several factors, including your metabolism, lifestyle, and habits, but most patients start to notice the results fade after four to eight months.
This is why having a good working relationship with your plastic surgeon is ideal for maximum results, as you can create a schedule for regular touch up injections.
You Will Love Your New Lips!
If you are getting lip fillers for yourself – and no one else – and you approach the procedure with realistic expectations for what it can offer you, then you will likely be thrilled with the results.
You can try and emulate your favorite pop icons’ lips by explaining which lip aesthetic you prefer to your plastic surgeon. An experienced surgeon will be able to recreate a similar aesthetic.
