Plump lips have become a highly desirable sign of youth and beauty in the last few years, thanks to the social media attention created by many popular celebrities. Due to this trend, many women look at themselves in the mirror or photos and realize they were born with naturally thin lips. As a result, they find themselves constantly seeking ways to enhance their lips to their ideal size and shape.

If you have thin lips, you shouldn’t be ashamed of them. You’ve probably figured out how to patiently and skillfully use makeup to draw just outside your natural lip line and make your lips look more prominent. And you’ve almost certainly discovered products and tricks that will help fill out your lips for a few hours.

Of course, there’s an easier and longer-lasting way to boost lip volume and get that sexy pout in Orland Park, IL. At Dreyfuss Plastic Surgery, board-certified Dr. David Dreyfuss offers multiple lip augmentation options with dermal fillers to help you achieve your ideal lip contour and balanced facial appearance for all your social media appearances!

Full Lips Without Surgery

Your full lips are achievable with minimally invasive injections providing you with immediate results. With little risk and zero downtime, you can enhance your facial beauty quickly and conveniently. Dr. Dreyfuss offers two outstanding treatments to have you looking your best for that next special occasion!

Minimally Invasive JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC

If you would like fuller lips and diminished lines around your mouth, you can benefit from JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC. Treatment with this injectable can correct downturned lip corners, thin lips, upper lip lines, restore lost volume, and give you a beautiful lip contour.

VOLBELLA™ XC® uses a crystal-clear gel injected directly into and around the lips using an ultra-fine needle, with results clinically proven to last up to one year for most patients.

What are the benefits of VOLBELLA™ XC®?

  • Improve lip contour
  • Enhance the Cupid’s bow
  • Restore lost lip volume
  • Fill in the corners of the mouth
  • Make lips more shapely
  • Smooth upper lip lines

Restylane® With Hyaluronic Acid

As one of the most effective dermal fillers for reducing folds and wrinkles, restoring lost volume and improving facial contours, Restylane® is a gel formulation of hyaluronic acid and the first of this type to be FDA-approved for lip enhancement for patients over 21.

Environmental factors, heredity, and age are no match for this injectable, which can instantly restore lost facial volume by stimulating natural collagen production in the selected treatment areas. The filler contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that performs a significant role in your body by attracting and retaining moisture.

Restylane® resolves wrinkles and fine lines, deep folds around the mouth, and plumps thin lips, providing positive aesthetic results. After a 30-minute session, you could return to work or your normal activities right away. Any swelling or redness you might experience is temporary, and your results will appear gradually, lasting up to six months.

After your treatment, be sure to read our guide on what to expect after your procedure, then go out and enjoy your new look!

Who doesn’t love full lips? Maybe we should blame it on Kylie Jenner, Instagram, or Taylor Swift for that perfect cupid’s bow. The reality is that lip enhancement is becoming increasingly popular, especially with the younger set.  Women between 20 and 29 use dermal fillers, up 32% since 2010, and many for more defined lips. However, there is reason to be concerned with this upward trend.

When a cosmetic treatment becomes popular, especially on social media, patients may use an unqualified injector without sufficient training or experience to perform a safe and successful treatment. Or they may push the boundaries of their natural facial contours to get the latest hot look. To ensure you get the best look possible without risking your health, follow these simple suggestions.

A Plastic Surgeon Is Your Best Option for Lip Augmentation

Any physician, physician’s assistant, nurse, or nurse practitioner can legally administer dermal fillers. However, this does not mean they have a deep understanding of facial anatomy like you would expect from a board-certified plastic surgeon. Every feature on your face works in harmony with the other. So, when you change the shape and size of your lips, this could:

  • Diminish the size of your nose
  • Change the look of your jaw
  • Alter the look of your eyes

This is why it’s best to use an injector who is knowledgeable about the underlying bony structure and how your lips need to be in harmony with your other facial features. You would also want to go to a clinic with a lot of experience with the nuances of dermal fillers, different products, and how one may work better for you than another. And lastly, lip augmentation may not be your best option. Another cosmetic treatment may be what’s best needed to achieve your desired outcome.

Why Dr. Dreyfuss

Dr. David Dreyfuss is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 30 years of experience in plastic surgery. He offers his patients results that are subtle but enhance your overall look. And with the advent of social media, it has never been more critical to consult with a plastic surgeon for cosmetic improvement. Too many patients, especially millennials, seek an option based just on a photo and say, “I want to look like that.” Unfortunately, many women and men live to regret such choices with unnatural-looking results.

Dr. Dreyfuss understands facial anatomy and the science behind dermal fillers. He will deliver a result that will be universally attractive without giving you duck lips. If you’re looking to improve your lip appearance, and want natural, appealing lips in the process, give Dr. Dreyfuss a call.

If you love that keyhole pout or Cupid’s Bow many celebrities are sporting, you may want to look into lip fillers. Stars like Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner get a lot of attention for their sensual looks. Lip fillers are trending in the Chicago area, mostly because of the quick treatment, easy recovery, and stunning results. More and more patients are seeking this treatment to prepare for big events or just to look fantastic entering a room. We created this guide so you know what to expect after the procedure.

Minimal Downtime

Come into our office, then get back to your life. Our lip augmentation treatments offer no downtime with few restrictions once you leave the office. Pop in, pop out, and look stunning as a result. In 30 minutes, you can create your perfect pout. We do suggest:

  • Minimize your workouts for one or two days—For the first couple of days after treatment, we ask you to avoid strenuous activity to decrease swelling and bruising.
  • Resume regular activities—Other than working out, you’re free to get back to your life after treatment. You may have a bit of swelling, so if that bothers you, schedule a Friday appointment so you’ll have the weekend to allow the swelling to dissipate.
  • Hands off—We ask to not touch your lips while you heal. We know that it’s tempting, but hold off because rubbing can shift the filler inside.

Lip augmentation injections will have you looking and feeling beautiful in no time. Your confidence will soar with your new look.

Minimal Discomfort

You don’t have to be bothered by pain after lip fillers. Most women experience a minimal amount of discomfort, if any at all. The fillers often contain lidocaine (an anesthetic), which reduces soreness during and after the injections.

Results that Last

Our filler injections provide fantastic results that last for several months. We’ll can set up another treatment in the future so you will always look your best. Expect a sexy smile for four to six months before another session.

Timing Is Essential

If you’re having the treatment for a future event like a wedding, vacation, or reunion, you’ll want to time it right. You need to give the fillers time to settle and deliver that fabulous look. Results may not be realized for a while, so schedule your appointment soon to learn when it’s best to have the injections done.

Are you preparing for Valentine’s Day? It’s a day many women see as an opportunity to highlight their romantic side. Appearance is essential when you want to attract that special somebody. Having lips that entice with the fullness of a magazine model or that Taylor Swift cupid’s bow are all desirable attributes of facial beauty.

Although there are some outrageous home treatments like sucking on a glass bottle to make your lips swell, you should put your beauty in the hands of a professional. Try taking a page from the celebrity handbook and get long-lasting results in a stress-free environment that offers proven results.

Dreyfuss Plastic Surgery could be what the doctor ordered to add volume to your lips and eliminate those vertical lines just in time for Valentine’s Day. Dr. Dreyfuss can help you discover advanced products to produce luscious lips. His practice is convenient to Chicago in Orland Park.

Soften Lines and Wrinkles

Your face is where the effects of aging will hit first, with wrinkles, lines, and folds. When these blemishes begin to appear, it’s best to treat them without delay. Dreyfuss Plastic Surgery offers an array of cosmetic treatments, including dermal fillers, to help you look radiant year-round. Today, we will focus on your lips to give you that sensual look that will be appealing to your special Valentine.

Different Styles

Lip enhancement may include a lip lift that affects the upper lip or the corners of the mouth. Both approaches will increase the prominence of the vermilion border, which is the reddish part of the lips. Or, you may prefer a keyhole pout that affects the lower and upper lips. This style creates a distinct divide between the lower and upper lip, providing a sexy appeal.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Lip augmentation is not what you would call a new concept. Voluptuous, sensual lips have been a desirable attribute and a component of beauty since the beginning of time. Today, non-surgical treatments are the rage to plump lips and eliminate those vertical lines around the mouth.  

Dr. Dreyfuss offers Juvederm Volbella® XC, Juvederm Ultra XC, Restylane, and Restylane Silk to address thin lips and resolve smokers’ lines. These lip fillers provide a temporary solution that allows you to manage volume and adjust lip contour until you are delighted with the results.

How to Get Started

We understand that maintaining your facial beauty is vital, and finding a cosmetic specialist may seem daunting, but it’s not. If you want to correct your facial imperfections with medical-grade anti-aging treatments that are medical grade, you should consult with a plastic surgeon. Dr. Dreyfuss and his staff help women and men achieve their cosmetic goals. They strive to make your experience a memorable one, with a comfortable atmosphere and safe and pleasing results.
