About Silicon Lip Injections
For more than fifty years, liquid injectable silicone has been used for soft-tissue augmentation, with many professional plastic surgeons of today noting its excellent results.
Besides achieving beautiful lips, the benefits of silicone lip injections also include an inert chemical structure, long-lasting results, and a low cost.
With silicone injections, it’s very important to have it administered in its correct dosage by a well-trained medical professional with plenty of experience. It’s also crucial to only receive medical-grade silicone as opposed to industrial grade products.
Treatment and Recovery
Silicone lip injections are non-surgical, and sessions typically take less than 20 minutes. Once Dr. Funcik completes your injections, you can expect some numbness, swelling, and bruising.
To reduce the swelling and achieve a quicker recovery, keep your head above your heart when resting and sleeping. Some patients prefer to sleep in a recliner for a couple of nights following the procedure.
In order to heal properly, it’s wise to avoid major activities for about two weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate?
As long as you’re generally healthy and have realistic expectations, you are a great candidate for silicone lip injections. Please let Dr. Funcik know if:
- You smoke
- You have an autoimmune condition
- You are allergic to certain medications
Whether your concern is thin lips, a lack or loss of definition, or asymmetry, silicone lip injections can help improve the problem.
