There are many internet rumors floating around about how to achieve celebrity-quality lip augmentation. At Utah Facial Plastics, Dr. Thompson and our nurse injector Alfie, are happy to provide safe and professional lip augmentation to those patients who seek more full, yet natural-looking, lips.
For most patients, lip size is an inherited trait. If you were not lucky enough to be born with the plump, full lips you desire – rest assured that treatment options are available to obtain your desired results. Lip augmentation is also popular among patients who may be losing lip volume due to age.
Before any treatment, Dr. Thompson performs a comprehensive anatomic analysis on each patient in order to achieve the most pleasing, natural results. Utah Facial Plastics offers the full complement of treatments – from non-surgical, temporary enlargement with dermal fillers such as Restylane, Restylane Silk, Juvederm, and Belotero, to more permanent surgical options such as fat-injections.
Alfie has specifically been trained under the direction of Dr. Thompson, who has been performing lip augmentation for close to 15 years and is known for incredibly natural results. Alfie is incredibly gentle, patient, and an absolute perfectionist with all injectables.
Lip augmentation is relatively painless because a local or topical anesthetic is used with every treatment. There is also very little downtime associated with lip augmentation. You can expect to experience some swelling for 1-2 days after treatment.
