At Poughkeepsie Facial, Plastic, Reconstructive and Laser Surgery, we offer non-surgical lip fillers, or lip injections, which are quick, safe and effective. Lip fillers are the perfect option to restore symmetry, fullness and definition to the lips without the risks of surgery.
Due to their distinct color and importance in both verbal and non-verbal communication, the lips are often the first focus of attention on a person’s face. Most people are not genetically blessed with full, naturally beautiful lips. The aging process, sun exposure, and smoking all reduce the natural beauty of your lips.
Our Board Certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical lip rejuvenation options including Poughkeepsie lip lift surgery, Poughkeepsie surgical lip implants and Poughkeepsie lip filler.
Who is a Candidate for Poughkeepsie Lip Fillers?
Healthy patients who desire more attractive, luscious, full lips may be perfect candidates for lip injections or lip fillers.
What is the Recovery like from Non-Surgical Lip Fillers?
Lip enhancements, orPoughkeepsie lip fillers, are performed in our office with a topical or injectable numbing medication. The lip filler solution is gently injected into the lips with a very fine needle. Minimal, if any, discomfort or pain is experienced.
Patients are instructed to avoid eating and drinking until numbness resolves, generally within two hours. Ice may be applied to the lips for a short time immediately following the procedure to minimize bruising and swelling.
Most patients report minimal discomfort or pain following lip injection but may be treated with Tylenol if needed. Aspirin, NSAIDs, and other medications known to cause bleeding and bruising are discouraged for 1 week prior and 1 week following the procedure. If present at all, mild swelling and bruising may last 7-10 days and can be treated with a cold compress.
Makeup and other cosmetic products may be used on the lips on the day after injection. Most patients return to their occupational and social activities on the same day.
Our experienced, Board Certified Poughkeepsie Plastic Surgeons reduce bruising and recovery time with the application of state-of-art techniques and the use of homeopathic or herbal options. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.
