Lip Augmentation

Dr. Adams has vast expertise and knowledge in lip augmentation and has been asked to evaluate several new procedures in the field.  

Lip fullness

Patients of all ages may desire improvement in the fullness or bulk of the vermilion (the red part of the lip).  Several techniques are available to reproduce fullness of the lips.  These include augmentation (Alloderm and Softform/UltraSoft) and fat injections.  Each patient must be evaluated on an individual bases to determine which technique will work best for their desired results.

Lip length

As we age, the distance between the base of the nose and the pigmented portion of the lip increases, causing a thinning appearance.  This can often be corrected through a procedure know as a lift.  Aging lips also have deep vertical lines or “lipstick lines.”  These lines can be corrected through the use of injectable collagen or synthetic dermis.

Lip Highlight/ definition

Some patients desire increased definition of the vermilion border (red pigmented portion) of the lip.  This definition is usually accomplished using collagen injections or several new products currently under evaluation. 

What happens during the first consultation?

During the initial consultation, Dr. Adams will discuss what you would like to change about your lips.  After Dr. Adams examines your lips, you will both decide on the technique that best suits your needs.  At the end of your consultation, our professional photographers  will take pictures of your lips.   These photographs are used to plan your procedure and will remain confidential in your medical chart.

Where is the surgery done?

Dr. Adams performs all lip procedures at his office, unless they are done with another associated procedure that requires the outpatient surgery center.

What can I expect after surgery?

            Your lips will be sore and swollen for the next 1-2 weeks.

How many visits after surgery?

You will need to return in 7 days following surgery.  Dr. Adams will then do routine follow up visits at 2 weeks, 6weeks, and 6 months after your surgery.

Other often asked questions

Am I a good candidate?

The answer to this question can only be answered by Dr. Adams after careful review of your complete health history and a thorough consultation.

 What does the surgery cost?

The cost of surgery is determined by the technique and procedure you have chosen.  On the day of your consultation,  Dr. Adams' assistant will give you a quote on the procedure you have selected.

How do I pay for surgery?

At least 2 weeks prior to your surgery, your fee must be paid in full.  For your convenience, we accept checks, money orders, cash and all major credit cards.

What medications should I avoid?

You should avoid or be off all diet or over the counter weight medications. The only homeopathic medications are those recommended by Dr. Adams.  It is especially important to be off St. John's Wort and Ginseng, which can cause adverse effects during anesthesia. Please stop taking all aspirin-like products, Advil, and ibuprofen as these medications can cause bleeding problems. Please tell Dr. Adams what medications you are taking (prescription or non-prescription) to ensure the safety of any surgery.
