Plump And Re-shape Lips Effectively With Fillers In Westfield, Nj
At Burnett Plastic Surgery, we believe every patient is special. We understand that each man and woman has unique needs, so we won't use a cookie-cutter approach for cosmetic procedures. Whether it is wrinkle reduction or plumping the pout, our team offers a variety of noninvasive options. The lip injections at our NJ-based practice are ideal for enhancing beauty as well as renewing confidence.
Our lips are one of our most attractive and distinctive features, and they play an important role in overall facial symmetry and harmony. Dr. Carlos Burnett and Nurse Injector Mukta Rane take care to administer all lip injections with precision to reduce the signs of aging that occur around the mouth and help people who want a fuller smile despite the hand heredity has dealt them. Using the most suitable lip fillers, they work to ensure patients accomplish their personal goals by customizing each treatment plan at the practice.
Lip Injection Basics
Patients typically enjoy numerous benefits from lip injections at Burnett Plastic Surgery, including lips that have more volume and definition. Lip injections can also reduce vertical lines at the edge of the lips and lift the corners of the mouth to deliver a more youthful appearance. Dr. Burnett and Nurse Injector Rane apply their considerable experience with lip injections and other injectables to deliver results that are natural-looking and blend nicely with each patient's natural features.*
Lip injections are used to enhance the overall structure, shape, and volume of the lips. Commonly enjoyed benefits of lip injections include added definition to the lips (by reducing lipstick bleed lines), replaced lost volume, reduced vertical lines at the edges of lips, naturally beautiful contours from volume added to the right places, a restored youthful aesthetic due to lifting the corners of the mouth, and the creation of a "Cupid's bow" on the top lip, complementing the entire face.

What Causes Thinning, Deflated, Or Wrinkled Lips?
Fuller lips have been viewed as a sign of youthfulness and femininity for ages. Also, just as we use our eyes to convey information, we use the shape and position of our mouth to communicate non-verbally. Because of this, the facial muscles around the mouth are constantly contracting and relaxing as we talk, chew, pout, frown, purse the lips while sipping from a straw, smoke cigarettes, and more.
The skin on the lips itself is thinner, more fragile, and more prone to dryness than other areas. In addition to this, the lips are often left unprotected and are constantly exposed to the elements.
As we age, the structures around the mouth change, creating a new composition in the lips themselves—not to mention sun exposure and smoking can cause skin damage and premature perioral wrinkles to form. Collagen loss, which also occurs on the rest of the skin, leads to thinning and deflation of our lips over time—and some people simply have naturally thin lips due to their genetics.
We use lip injections to give lips a plumper, smoother appearance, as well as provide a more youthful look to the area around the mouth.
What To Expect From Lip Injections At Nj's Burnett Plastic Surgery
The first step toward achieving more voluptuous lips is to schedule a consultation. After examining your face, reviewing your medical history, and discussing your goals, we will determine if you are a candidate for lip injections.
The treatment itself involves injecting lip fillers into one or several areas. The fillers used for lip injections contain hyaluronic acid, a molecule that your skin naturally creates to retain moisture. Dr. Burnett or Nurse Injector Rane will select the best dermal filler for each patient. Juvederm® is one of the practice's most popular fillers for this option.
A topical numbing agent is applied before any lip injections are made in order to reduce discomfort for the patient. The lip injections are administered with very fine needles to the appropriate areas.
There is no downtime needed after a treatment. You can resume normal activities or return to work if you'd like after a lip injection session. Know that patients may experience some mild, short-term side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the sites of any lip injections. These side effects from lip injections are temporary.
More Than Lip Injections
In addition to lip injections, we offer several dermal fillers that help turn back the hands of time. Our fillers can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restore a youthful appearance, and add volume to areas such as the cheeks. Filler treatments do not require any downtime.
Another popular injectable is BOTOX®, which does not add volume, but addresses forehead lines and other wrinkles by preventing muscle action required to make certain expressions. We sometimes use BOTOX® for "lip flips" as well. This is a way of unfurling the upper lip slightly to enhance its shape or reduce a gummy smile caused by overworked muscles around the lip. Unlike lip injections with fillers, the "lip flip" doesn't involve adding plumpness and simply relaxes the muscles.
Given the range of noninvasive options available, Dr. Burnett and Nurse Injector Rane will work with each patient to develop a customized treatment plan.* The team at Burnett Plastic Surgery is committed to delivering each patient's desired results as best as possible. Whether you want to plump your pout with lip injections or bid farewell to wrinkles, we can customize a treatment plan for you.
