Summer is quickly approaching and so are all of the endless pool and vacation #selfies!
Let Athre Facial Plastics help you get #summerselfie ready by plumping your pout!
Lip augmentations are one of THE most common procedures Dr. Athre gets requests for. The options to #enhance your lips include lip fillers and permanent implants. Lips can be made plumper, more define, and fuller-creating a more #youthful and #polished look.
So what are the pros and cons of fillers vs permanant implants?
Fillers used in the lips usually are #Restalyne or #Juvederm. Both of these fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a compound that is naturally found in the body joint fluid, etc. Fillers usually last about 6 months in the lips because we use our mouths so much-talking, eating etc. The great thing about fillers is that they are less expensive and can be done very quickly in the office-normally less than 30 minutes!
Permanent silastic implants are a great options for lip enhancement as well! They are higher in the upfront cost, BUT THEY ARE PERMANENT. You will never need to have lip injections ever again. Having 3-4 rounds of lip injections is equivalent to the cost of the permanent implants, so long-term they save you money. The procedure for lip implants is done within the office with local anesthesia and only takes about 1 hour!
