Lip Enhancement – Naples & Fort Myers, Florida
Lip enhancement adds volume and fullness to naturally thin lips. Whether you’re looking for a dramatic change or a subtle, natural looking enhancement, Dr. Prysi can help you reach your goals. There are a couple of ways that plastic surgeons can plump up your lips, including lip implants and dermal fillers. Dr. Mark Prysi is pleased to offer lip enhancement to his patients in Naples and throughout all of Southwest Florida. He prefers using Juvederm or Restylane Silk for temporary lip augmentation and SurgiSil lip implants for permanent lip augmentation. If you’re considering augmenting your lips, Dr. Prysi encourages you to schedule a consultation with him to discuss your options. With many years of extensive experience, Dr. Prysi is well-known throughout South Florida for producing natural and beautiful lip enhancement and facial rejuvenation results.
Juvederm and Restylane Silk are hyaluronic acid-based clear gels that are injected into your skin with a very slim needle. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that can help retain collagen, increase moisture, and improve elasticity. Additional benefits of HA include it’s use for wrinkles, further assisting in helping you achieve a more youthful look. Once injected, Juvederm or Restylane Silk lifts and plumps your lips, and if injected properly, can even assist with improving proportion. It has a natural look and feel, and results are almost immediately visible. Juvederm or Restylane Silk can also smooth wrinkles and define the borders around your lips. Both treatments are nearly pain-free due to their mixture of lidocaine, a numbing anesthetic. Juvederm or Restylane Silk are eventually absorbed by your body within one-year post-injection, so regular touch-up treatments are required to maintain the results. Side effects are mild, but could include bruising, redness, swelling, or tenderness.
SurgiSil Lip Implants
Dr. Prysi prefers to use SurgiSil synthetic lip implants for permanent lip enhancement. SurgiSil implants are an FDA-approved option that is easy to place and normally well-tolerated. Dr. Prysi places lip implants through an incision at the corners of your lips. This location allows for minor scarring to be hidden within the natural contours of your lips. He makes a pocket for the implant in your lip tissue and threads the implant through the incision. He can place implants in both your upper and lower lips. The implants offer natural consistency and feel very similar to normal lip tissue after they have healed. Lip implants come in several different sizes; Dr. Prysi can help you select the best size for your lips during your consultation. There is little downtime necessary with the lip enhancement procedure; you will likely be able to return to your normal everyday routine after treatment. In addition, SurgiSil implants are made specifically for lips. Other implants could cause “tissue-in-growth” and actually scar the implant giving it a tethered, unnatural look.
Although SurgiSil is a permanent alternative to continuous and costly filler injections, the implant can be removed if desired. It is made of soft, solid silicone that cannot rupture or deflate, offering a naturally contoured appearance. SurgiSil stands out from other injectables and implants because it is made up of material preferably suited for use in the facial tissues. SurgiSil strives to overcome the complications that other injectables and solid implants bring about.
