Valentine’s Day is one of our favorite holidays. It’s a chance to tell that special someone in your life what they mean to you and lean into romance. For some people, though, the lover’s holiday can be one of the most stressful days of the year. Putting together the perfect surprise or finding a unique and memorable gift isn’t easy. This year, instead of getting stuck buying candy or flowers (okay gifts in theory–but a bit blasé), give your loved one a gift that keeps on giving: kissable, luscious, plump lips.
At North Atlanta Plastic Surgery, Dr. Alderman has a range of surgical and non-invasive tools and techniques to achieve the perfect pout just in time for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’ve always had thinner lips or have seen your lip volume decrease over the last few years as collagen production has slowed down–we can help.
Full lips give you a younger, more appealing look–celebs like Kylie Jenner, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Hudson have all admitted to getting (and loving) lip fillers. Dr. Alderman’s treatment options can provide you life-long enhancement in just a few hours via surgery or fat transfer. You also have the choice to get immediately visible superb semi-permanent results that gradually fade over time thanks to fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. If you think this is the year to boost your confidence while adding some surprise and spice to your Valentine’s Day, lip augmentation could be the perfect fit.
We recommend fillers for most of our patients looking for a first-time lip volume boost. Our medical spa offers a variety of filler brands, which all provide similar results but are manufactured by different companies. There are slight variations between each product’s chemical properties, and some are a bit more firm; others have smaller molecules, making them softer to the touch. Depending on what result you want, and where you decide to get fillers, we can determine which brand is right for you.
Every filler we offer our clients provides immediate results with no downtime necessary. Another significant benefit of V-day fillers is you don’t have to make a lifetime commitment. Over time, your body will naturally absorb the filler, returning your lips to their previous shape and volume. You can expect results to last for up to a year. If you get fillers and love your new look, though, we can schedule follow-up sessions to maintain your pout indefinitely.
Some of our patients worry lip injections could be painful, but fillers like JUVÉDERM® contain lidocaine to minimize any discomfort. For patients who are still concerned, we can also apply a topical numbing cream. A small number of patients may experience slight swelling following the procedure, but these symptoms will pass in a few days, and applying an ice pack can provide relief.
If you’re looking for permanent lip augmentation, implants could be the right option. If you’ve previously had fillers, we’ll need to wait for the body to absorb them entirely before scheduling your lip enhancement with implants.
Dr. Alderman uses FDA-approved SurgiSil™ implants, which are made of solid, soft, unshaped silicone inserted via a very small incision in each corner of your mouth. There will be no visible scarring, and if you want further customization, we can combine your procedure with fillers for more dramatic results.
If you’re looking for permanent lip enhancement but don’t want to undergo surgery or get implants, fat transfer provides gorgeous results–using your body’s own tissue. This technique creates a natural look and feel that our patients love.
First, Dr. Alderman takes fat from another part of the body via liposuction. The fat cells are then cleaned and prepared for transfer, ensuring a high rate of survival of the grafted cells. These cells are then carefully injected into your lips for long-term results. Dr. Alderman can use this technique in other areas of the face as well.
