Lip Augmentation by Dr. Kerns at Orchid Aesthetics in Midtown Manhattan, New York

Lip augmentation is an office based procedure that increases the size of the lips giving them more definition. The upper or lower lip may be treated alone or in conjunction with anti-aging injections of Botox Cosmetic . Lip augmentation by Dr. Kerns can be achieved by injecting Restylane or Juvederm Ultra into the lips. The results are temporary and can be enhanced and prolonged by using a hyaluronic ac serum from Dr. Kerns Skin Care line. The Fillers Restylane or Juvederm can be injected in the vermilion border, at the wet and dry border, or directly into the red of the lip.

Dr. Kerns at Orchid Aesthetics Medical Spa will bring her expertise to its best in reshaping and contouring your lips to perfect “Hollywood” shapes!

Preparation for lip augmentation

Stop smoking if possible two weeks before your lip enhancement procedure as smoking increases the risks of complications. Do not use any anti-inflammatory drugs (motrin, advil) or aspirin in the week prior to the scheduled injection day. If you have a history of blisters or Herpes infection inform the doctor  so she can prescribe preventive medication.

Whether or not an anesthetic is necessary depends on the lip augmentation procedure. Topical anesthesia is generally used before lip injections; if a low tolerance to pain is anticipated Dr. Kerns will administer a dental block so that the lip augmentation procedure is painless.

A natural plump look is the goal and Dr. Kerns is a true artist when it comes to delivering natural sensual lips.

Recovery from your Lip Augmentation procedure

Keep ice packs applied to your lips for the first 24 hours after your lip augmentation procedure. Limit ingestion of solid food and heavy alcohol. Sleep in a semi-upright position for the first few days and keep the lips clean to avoid infection (antibiotics may also be dispensed).

Recovery takes about 1-2 days after an injection. Bruising and swelling may last as long as a week.
