Lip AugmentationBy our Fort Lauderdale Plastic Surgeon
No matter your reason for wanting an augmentation, you need to know that your body is in good hands. Dr. Chance Kaplan of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has been a trusted name in plastic and cosmetic surgery since 1987. His compassionate and reassuring nature helps his patients feel confident in their decisions to make changes to improve their appearance.
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that creates fuller, larger looking lips using fillers. People may seek out lip augmentation if their lips have deflated with age, or their genetics have given them thinner lips that they are not happy with. It is very common for women especially to lose volume in their lips as they get older. A lip augmentation will restore their volume and add a desired fullness, to create not only the desired lips, but also a more youthful face.

Your Lip Augmentation Consultation
At your lip augmentation consultation, Dr. Kaplan will ask you important questions about your medical history and your reasons for seeking a calf implant. He will examine your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for a gluteus implant.
Come to the appointment prepared to discuss your current medications including over-the-counter medications and supplements. It would be helpful for you to bring your medication bottles with you.
Once you and Dr. Kaplan agree that lip augmentation is a good choice for you, your treatment will be discussed and scheduled. Most treatments take place right here in our Fort Lauderdale office. You will be given instructions for caring for your lips following your procedure as well as prescriptions to reduce discomfort and swelling. Plan ahead so that you will have adequate time to rest while you are healing.
The Lip Augmentation Procedure
During the augmentation, Dr. Kaplan will place small injections along the white portion of your lip, or the lining of the lip. Fillers are placed inside the lips to give it the desired fullness. Depending on the look the patient wants to receive, Dr. Kaplan will add filler as desired. Dr. Kaplan may also opt to put in implants surgically, which will give you a permanent fullness.
Following Your Lip Augmentation
After your procedure is complete, most patients will be able to return to normal without any downtime. Many will experience slight bruising or swelling at the injection site, which can be easily minimized by using ice. Dr. Kaplan will go over your options post procedure to determine if there are other measures you can use to reduce swelling.
