A Smile That Speaks Volumes
If you have always wanted fuller lips without surgery, then you may be considering some of the non-surgical options available today. Many people are opting for Lip Filler methods that inject dermal fillers into the lip area, which can increase lip volume and enhance the shape of your lips without surgery.
Increase Your Appeal
There are a variety of lip augmentation methods that boost the volume of your lips, which may be composed of fat removed from your own body or any commercially available fillers. Some of the more common commercially available fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid or polylactic acid, though several others exist.
These fillers are longer lasting but not permanent. When the filler is injected into the lips, some of the initial fullness that is achieved may settle in the first few days. When the chosen filler is made up of the patient’s own fat, it must first be harvested from another part of the body using liposuction.
Achieving More Self-Confidence
There are many benefits of Lip Fillers, including boosting your confidence and improving your smile. Depending on your specific goals, there are a variety of methods that can help you achieve them. For example, if you’re looking to improve your overall look by enhancing what nature has given you, then a lip lift may be an ideal option. On the other hand, if you want fuller lips with more definition and volume, then fat grafting or lip filler may be right for you.
Enhance Your Look
Those who are looking for a temporary improvement in their lip volume are ideal candidates for Lip Fillers. Candidates with allergies to some of the filler materials may be able to choose other filler materials as an alternative.
"I've always had thin lips, so I decided to finally get Lip Fillers. I never had lip injections before, so I was nervous about having the procedure done, but I'm so glad I did. I love the way my lips look now. I feel amazing! Dr. Feledy and his staff are just the BEST!”
Focused on Natural-Looking Results
First, the desired outcome is discussed in detail, and the proper injection areas on the lips are marked. The injection sites will be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be applied if desired. The lip injections are done into the target areas taking only a few minutes. The marks will be washed away, and ice may be applied.
Smile! You’re Done!
There is no recovery period after a dermal filling for lip augmentation, though the area should not be pressed or rubbed for a few days. Washington DC lip filler patients may experience some swelling and bruising. Depending on the lip augmentation procedure chosen, there may be an overfilled appearance that should normalize after a few days as the body absorbs some of the filler.
Although most lip augmentation methods will give you an immediate result, several factors will affect how long your results last such as the type of filler used. There are many options to get you the shape, look, feel and duration that you are looking for so it is a good idea to speak with your surgeon about options that are right for you.

Pain, redness, or itching at the injection site is typical and should be minor. Consult Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino if you are experiencing significant discomfort, redness, itching, or pain outside the lip area. Some patients are concerned about overfilling, especially during the first week after treatment when their lips are still puffy.
Side effects of Lip Fillers are rare but may include acne, asymmetry, bleeding, bruising, lumping, infection, itching, redness, sensitivity, swelling, numbness, tightness, and rejection of the filler material. These risks associated with lip injections will be discussed in-depth during your consultation with Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino.
