Dr. Bloom Talks about Fillers
Thinning upper lips give the appearance of being old and angry. Fine lines and wrinkles (often called “smoker’s lines”) add insult to injury. Men and women today are fighting back by taking advantage of the many age defying options available than can virtually…take years off an aging face.
Lip augmentation rejuvenates lips by restoring their youthful volume and shape. This can be accomplished both non-surgically with injectable fillers for temporary, but natural looking results, or with implants that achieve a softer and more natural look today than in the past.
• Restores a more youthful appearance to thin, droopy, aging lips
• Injectables work by plumping up or restoring lost volume to thin lips
• Implants restore fullness, shape & volume permanently
• Augmentation reduces fine lines & wrinkles around the mouth
• Lifts droopy corners of the mouth to a more youthful position
• Your own body fat can even be used for natural, long lasting results
• Is a safe office or operating room procedure with little to no downtime
If your lips are showing their age and have lost their volume and shape, and you have a strong desire to rejuvenate them to look younger, then lip augmentation is right for you. Dr. Bloom will discuss your options during your personal consultation and help you make the right choice. You should be in good health and have mature, realistic expectations.
Lip augmentation involves a few different options. Temporary treatments use injectable fillers, take only a few minutes in our office to perform, and require only a local anesthetic. These include fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane to achieve wonderful results for up to 1 year. Permanent lip enhancement uses implants such as the PermaLip® and involves placement under local anesthesia.
Dr. Bloom is one of the few surgeons on the Main Line who has gone through such rigorous and prestigious training, including board certification from the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery and a fellowship with the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Bloom has comprehensive experience in face lifting, rhinoplasty, ear surgery, eyelid rejuvenation, brow and forehead aesthetic surgery as well as extensive training in non-surgical treatments including BOTOX, injectable fillers, and laser therapies.
Aging causes thinning lips to lose their fullness & voluptuous shape while the corners of the mouth sag & wrinkles appear. When the lips go…the signs of youth, health & fertility fade also.
It’s a procedure used to restore fullness, shape and contour to lips that have lost their youthfulness. This is a cosmetic procedure that results in either temporary or permanent outcomes and uses fillers such as hyaluronic acid, Alloderm, structural fat grafting (own body fat), and/or silastic PermaLip implants.
Men and women of all ages and various stages come to Dr. Bloom for lip augmentation. He helps them choose the right type of treatment to achieve their desired outcomes.
This depends upon the method chosen, but typically from 30 to 60 minutes.
Different techniques involve different levels of discomfort. Dr. Bloom is highly skilled in all facial procedures and is able to minimize discomfort using advanced techniques and instruments. After your procedure, cool compresses and oral pain medication easily manage any discomfort you may experience.
Some swelling, bruising and discomfort is normal and to be expected. It all resolves on its own over a couple of days.
No. Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure and insurance does not cover it. We offer financing that will pay for it. Please ask about it in our business office.
