Lip Injections in Charlotte, NC
Full lips are one of the most desired facial features amongst women, and even some men want to improve their lip shape and size. At HKB Renaissance Plastic Surgery, we offer lip injections so you can have fuller lips without implants. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Klein, and board-eligible plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Kochuba, specialize in lip injections for men and women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What are Lip Injections?
Lip enhancement can be achieved in one of two ways — with silicone implants, or with dermal fillers. Many of our patients avoid lip implants because the result can be unnatural and much more severe than expected. With dermal fillers, Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba can sculpt and shape the lips with an exceptional level of precision.
Benefits of Lip Injections
Our lip injections are performed with a combination of top dermal fillers, so you can have fuller lips:
- Without implants
- That appear supremely natural
- To the degree you desire, rather than as determined by pre-sized implants
- For as long as you like, because the dermal fillers are gradually absorbed by the body
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Lip Injections?
Dermal fillers that are FDA-approved require that patients be at least 18 years old. You may not be a candidate for lip injections if you have certain allergies, a history of lip injections or certain types of abnormalities related to your lips.
What Do I Need to Do Before Lip Injections?
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba. They will help you visualize how your lips will look after the injections. You can start out with smaller changes and then gradually change the size and shape of your lips, or have Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba perform a full lip enhancement with dermal fillers.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Lip Injections?
Lip injections take about 15 to 30 minutes.
What to Expect After Lip Injections
Your lips will feel tender, and you may have some difficulty talking and eating. This is normal until your lips heal and you are accustomed to the new shape of your lips.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Lip Injections?
Lip injections do not cause scars.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see the results right away. However, you should wait for the swelling to go down before assessing the final results.
How Long Will the Results of Lip Injections Last?
The dermal fillers we use for lip injections last six months to one year. Results may vary based on the specific fillers used for your injections.
How Much Does Lip Injections Cost in Charlotte?
We will provide an accurate cost after your consultation. Because medical insurance does not cover the cost of lip injections, we offer several convenient payment methods, including cash, checks and major credit cards. Financing is available through CareCredit®.
