Perfecting Lip Fillers: How to Get Results You Love

Lip fillers have quickly risen to become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. While this procedure can provide stunning results and subtly plump your lips to perfection, fillers require a great deal of skill to be properly administered.

It’s critical to work with an expert who understands facial anatomy. As a highly specialized and board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Wallin has the experience and training to create natural-looking fullness that redefines your lip borders while creating a perfect pout.

Dr. Wallin’s made a new video breaking down just how much filler is enough to achieve the results you want. What’s great about fillers is that results are highly customizable, and last for six to 18 months. As such, this procedure is a wonderful option for anyone hoping to try out a new fuller-lipped look. Over time, your body will naturally reabsorb the product without any side effects.

If you love your results, we can discuss options for long-term maintenance. It also never hurts to take things slowly, if it’s your first time. Dr. Wallin can always add more down the line if you like what you see!

Choosing the Right Type of Filler

Dr. Wallin seeks to create beautiful and natural results for every patient who walks in the door. With lip fillers, Dr. Wallin recommends most patients receive a single 1 ml syringe worth of filler per session. This amount of filler will increase fullness while also maintaining subtlety. If you’re looking to create a more dramatic effect, we can discuss increasing the amount of filler as needed.

Oasis Aesthetics only uses the highest-quality hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers made by Juvederm and Restylane, as they are best suited to complement facial anatomy. More long-lasting options are prone to shifting over time, especially in the lips, which can lead to unwanted lumps, bulging, or asymmetry. Our HA fillers ride a perfect line between results that last and stay in place.

Another reason Dr. Wallin chooses HA fillers is that he can reverse the results if he needs to. If you complete your treatment and decide you’d like to return to your natural lip contour, HA fillers are safely and quickly dissolved by an enzyme, known as hyaluronidase, that speeds up hyaluronic acid degradation.

Working with an Expert

The number one way to ensure that your lip fillers are aesthetically pleasing is to work with an expert. While many cosmetic surgeons offer filler treatments, these may be administered by technicians without the proper training or years of experience necessary to craft beautiful results.

The lips are one of our most visible features, and unfortunately, plumping in the wrong areas can be quite noticeable. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Wallin has a proven track record in providing patients with natural results they love. During your consultation, we can provide before and after pictures to help you gain a clearer understanding of what your final results will look like.
