If you want to get lip augmentation in Tampa, you should visit cosmetic surgeon Dr. George Solomon at Solomon Cosmetic Center in Tampa, FL. A lip enhancement procedure can improve the shape and fullness of your lips. There are several different fillers that can be used for this procedure including Radiesse®, Restylane®, and fat injection.
WHICH LIP FILLER IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Dr. Solomon can determine the best lip augmentation approach for you by meeting with you for a consultation. After learning about your aesthetic goals, reviewing your medical history, and assessing your facial structure and tissues, Dr. Solomon will identify the optimal lip filler treatment for your needs.
Dr. Solomon often recommends the following lip enhancement options:
- Hyaluronic acid-based fillers – Dr. Solomon frequently uses hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Restylane Kysse® and Revanesse® Lips as they can be good options for patients who desire to augment their lips, fill in the vertical lines above the lips, or even lift up the corners of the mouth.
- Fat injection – Facial fat transfer can be ideal for patients who desire slimmer body contours as well as lip augmentation. With a facial fat transfer procedure, the patient’s unwanted body fat is removed and purified to create fat injections that can be used to augment the lips.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LIP AUGMENTATION?
If you desire a more refined lip shape and/or fuller lips, you may be a good candidate for lip augmentation. Patients who want to minimize fine lines around the mouth can also be good candidates for this treatment.
Lip enhancement candidates should be non-smokers in good health. The candidates should also have realistic expectations about the results.
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
Before Dr. Solomon begins the procedure, he will apply a numbing agent to your lips to minimize discomfort and pain. After he marks the areas that need to be injected, he will use fine needles to inject the fillers into your lips. Once the procedure is done, your doctor will apply ice to your lips to minimize swelling and ease discomfort.
There are several side effects, but they are normally minimal and last only a few days. Common side effects include bleeding, swelling, bruising and tenderness. More serious side effects include infection, lumps, scarring, and lip asymmetry. If you experience the more serious side effects, you should contact Dr. Solomon immediately.

AFTERCARE AND RECOVERY
Although you might experience a little swelling and bruising, receiving a lip augmentation is not cosmetic surgery; you can return to work the next day.
Various lip enhancement treatments last for different amounts of time. For example, Restylane® lasts for about six to nine months while Radiesse® can last for up to a year. Injected fat cells from a fat transfer can be permanent although those cells will continue to age over time.
HOW MUCH DOES LIP AUGMENTATION COST?
The cost of your treatment will depend on the type of filler and the number of syringes needed to achieve your lip augmentation goals. The price of your procedure will be reviewed with you during your consultation.
