Plumper, fuller lips in just minutes.
A lip injection is a cosmetic procedure that plumps and fills the lips, smoothing out wrinkles and making the lips fuller and more voluptuous. This can be done with dermal fillers or with natural fat transfer. Dermal fillers use carefully-formulated ingredients to provide natural and long-lasting results, and a lip enhancement can be performed in a matter of minutes.
Your lip injection procedure will largely depend on the method used. With dermal fillers, the product is simply injected into the lips and the procedure is complete. These injections are generally comfortable, but a topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize discomfort. A fat transfer is a slightly longer process because it requires extracting fat from another area of the body before injections. After it is purified in a centrifuge, it is ready for injection. Kayla Ferraro, Dr. Afrooz's Nurse Injector, performs all injections with the utmost care and precision to ensure that patients have a comfortable, rewarding treatment.
Fat transfer lip injections: The natural approach.
A fat transfer requires fat to be harvested from another area of the body via liposuction. This fat is then purified and injected into the lips. Kayla Ferraro, Dr. Afrooz's Nurse Injector, recognizes that the lips are a very delicate area and are often the first thing that people notice about you. He takes extreme care when performing lip injections and will work closely with you to ensure that you are happy with your results.
Lip injections typically require no downtime, and you can resume your normal activities immediately. In some cases, you may have minor bruising or swelling after treatment, but this typically fades within a few days. The results from lip injections are visible immediately and can last up to six months or longer, depending on the technique used.

What is the cost of a lip injection?
Lip injections with natural fat are more expensive, but the results last longer, as the fat cells establish themselves for the long term after transfer. Lip injections are considered cosmetic procedures, which means you may be responsible for the full cost of treatment. We accept most major credit cards, including financing with CareCredit for more flexible payment options.
