Introduction to Lip Fillers

Lips are the focal point of one’s face. When they are full and accentuated, they can convey the most beautiful, emotional, and stunning expression. Many people suffer from thin lips or with age, drooping lips. If you have been thinking about enhancing your lips with Lip Filler, you have come to the right people. Dr. George Papanicolaou and Soma Plastic Surgery not only offers the best quality Lip Fillers, but we do it with the precision and care that is needed for such a sensitive and cornerstone facial feature.

Below, we’ve included more information about the treatment. If you’d like to book a consultation, please contact us at our Lake Mary office, just north of Orlando at (407) 478-3151 today!

What are Lip Fillers?

Lip Fillers, also known as Lip Augmentation or Lip injections are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the form of injections that are used to add volume to your lips using a type of dermal filler called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a natural chemical you create organically in your system which helps with the elasticity of your skin, thereby helping with reduced appearance of facial fine lines and wrinkles. When Lip Fillers, using a synthetic version of this HA, are injected into your lips, they create volume and plump up the area.

Since lips are such a central focal point of your face, Lip Fillers can offer subtle tweaks or more dramatic transformations to your facial expression in a quick turnaround. Whether you desire fuller lips, a more defined lip border, or a balanced smile, Lip Fillers can help you achieve your desired aesthetic goals with minimal downtime and natural-looking results.

What’s the First Step?

The first step towards getting Lip Fillers in Orlando is to schedule a consultation with one of our trained Providers at Soma Plastic Surgery. During this initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations for the procedure. Your Provider will evaluate your lips and facial features, taking into consideration your over facial harmony and lip structure. They will also review your medical history to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. Finally, they will provide you with detailed information about the treatment, including the type of filler that will be used, the amount needed, and the anticipated outcome.

Once you have both discussed and agreed upon the treatment plan, you can schedule your Lip Filler appointment, or we can get started right away.

What to Expect on the Day of Lip Fillers

Be prepared for an efficient and pleasant experience on the day of your Lip Filler appointment at Soma Plastic Surgery. We will begin by applying a topical anesthetic to numb the area so that you are comfortable during the injections. The numbing creams often consist of benzocaine, lidocaine, and tetracaine (BLT). About 15 to 30 minutes later, your lips should be numb. If you have a BLT allergy, you may be given a nerve block injection to numb your lips, which takes about 15 to 30 minutes as well.

Once your lips are numbed, the provider will carefully administer the chosen Lip Filler injections with an ultra-thin needle to minimize any discomfort. While you won’t feel any pain, many patients express feeling a pinching sensation, which may cause their eyes to water.

An ice pack may be applied to your lips throughout the procedure to minimize swelling and bruising.

The entire procedure could take as little as 30 minutes to two hours.

Lip Fillers Recovery

After receiving Lip Fillers at Soma Plastic Surgery, the provider will gently massage the treated area to ensure even distribution; they may continue to ice your lips as well to minimize bruising and swelling.

You will be monitored for up to 15 minutes to ensure you don’t experience any side effects, such as dizziness, nausea, or substantial bleeding. Once it is decided that you no longer require monitoring, you’ll be able to go home. Although the local anesthetic won’t make you tired or groggy so you can drive yourself home, you may choose to have a family member or friend drive you home just in case.

Your lips may be swollen, sensitive, and bruised, but those reactions should fade away after 24 to 48 hours, however, it can take up to a week.

You may be asked to return for a follow-up appointment about two weeks after the procedure to monitor your lips and take “after” photos.

Here are some tips that can help during your initial recovery for the best results:

  • Apply an ice pack for up to 10 minutes to reduce inflammation, pain, and swelling.
  • Avoid exercising for at least 24 hours
  • Be careful brushing your teeth
  • Don’t wear lipstick, lip balm, or any other product on your lips for at least 24 hours
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Refrain from touching or puckering your lips, including kissing and sipping from a straw
