The non-invasive lip augmentation treatment improves the shape and volume of your lips with hyaluronic acid fillers or other alternatives such as collagen or fat injections for added structure and plumpness.
Depending on your situation, your personalized Fairfield County lip augmentation focuses specifically on the signs of aging bothering you the most.
Dr. Newman’s decades of experience, combined with his knowledge of the latest techniques and technological innovations, provide you with the perfect combination of expertise, care, and innovation. We call it “The Newman Difference.”
Not everyone is born with naturally full lips—discover solutions that are right for you. As you age, fine lines can appear around the border of your lips—causing lipstick to bleed through. Dr. Newman offers lip augmentation solutions with a variety of modalities to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Injectable dermal fillers are the most popular method of lip augmentation. Dr. Newman uses JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC to add significant volume to the lips, giving a plump, “pouty” effect that usually lasts about six months. It is approved for patients 21 and over.
If you have always felt self-conscious about thin lips or noticed your lips losing volume as you age, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC can help you achieve the appearance you desire. The process of injecting JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is very simple and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. After discussing your goals for lip fillers Fairfield County plastic surgeon Dr. Newman will decide where to administer the injections by examining your face and lips. After applying a topical anesthetic, he can inject the filler using a fine needle.
Our goal is to improve not only the appearance of your lips but also your confidence and self-esteem.
You may experience some minor tenderness or discomfort after treatment that will quickly subside over the course of a day. One of the most attractive aspects of lip enhancement with fillers is that you can see a change in your lips immediately following the procedure. Lip injections are a safe, effective, and subtle way to improve your facial appearance. You can also safely undergo touch-up treatments to maintain your results.
The V-Y flap reconstruction is a popular procedure because the results are permanent. V-Y flap reconstruction uses a skin advancement technique to create a flap in the lip that can then be repositioned to reveal more of the pink lip tissue. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and involves making a V-shaped incision inside the lips, sliding the V-shaped wedges forward, and then stitching them in a Y shape. Next, board-certified Connecticut plastic surgeon Dr. Fredric Newman will make the incisions inside the mouth to push the tissue upward and outward for a fuller lip.
When performed by an experienced surgeon, this technique can be completed without resulting in visible scarring. Traditionally used in reconstructive surgery for patients with skin defects, the applications of this technique have been expanded to lip augmentation since the treatment can make lips look fuller and more attractive. Complications are rare but can include infection and scarring. Patients who have undergone this procedure should wait several days after their lip augmentation before returning to work.
Lip augmentation is often performed as a standalone procedure. Still, it can also be performed in conjunction with other facial plastic surgery procedures, including rhinoplasty, forehead lift, facelift, mid-facelift, and placement of chin or other facial implants, to create an even more dramatic effect. During a consultation, Dr. Newman can recommend the right method of lip augmentation to meet your goals. Schedule your consultation today.
There is minor discomfort which can be alleviated with numbing cream or local anesthetic. Some injections contain lidocaine to ease any pain associated with your treatment. After your treatment, minor pain and swelling are reduced with over-the-counter pain medications.
While complications are rare, some risks include infection at the injection site, lip asymmetry, scarring, or prolonged swelling.
The cost of lip augmentation is tailored to each individual’s specific needs and aesthetic goals. During your consultation, the price for your treatment will be discussed.
Insurance does not cover lip augmentation. However, there may be seasonal or promotional packages to take advantage of—be sure to ask about upcoming treatment specials.
