Introduction to Lip Fillers

Your lips say a lot – both verbally and physically – drawing a lot of attention from many people who look at and talk to you. This kind of attention can cause patients with thinner or smaller lips to feel self-conscious and concerned about their appearance. While there are more permanent options for larger lips, most people are looking for natural results that allow for a better, overall appearance. At KH Plastic Surgery, we offer Lip Fillers to help our New York City & Long Island patients achieve a youthful appearance and refine their lip contours, using the latest techniques to ensure the process is easy and comfortable.

What to Expect on the Day of Lip Fillers surgery

When you come into our office for your Lip Filler treatment, we will first make you comfortable in our reclining treatment chair. Next, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your lips to prevent any pain and make your experience as comfortable as possible. Please keep in mind that while the treatment is rather quick, it will take about 15 to 30 minutes for your lips to become fully numb.

Either Dr. Hoschander or one of our providers will then use a thin needle to inject the lip filler into your lips at strategic locations, which can include the edges of your lips (vermillion border), the corners of your mouth, and your Cupid’s Bow, which is the curve in the center of your upper lip. While you shouldn’t feel any pain, many patients have expressed there is a pinching sensation, that can cause eyes to water. After evaluating the results and deciding that enough filler has been used, your injector will end the session by gently massaging your lips. This action helps the filler to be naturally distributed.

We will keep you for about 15 minutes to ensure you don’t experience any side effects, such as dizziness, nausea, or substantial bleeding. During this time, we will provide you with an ice pack for your lips to minimize swelling and bruising.

Lip Fillers Recovery

These effects are usually temporary and will subside within a few days to a week. It is recommended to avoid excessive touching or pressure on the lips, follow post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Hoschander, and allow your body time to heal for optimal results.
