Lip Filler

Plastic Surgery Experts

Lip fillers have become an increasingly popular option among people to achieve plumper and fuller lips, and at Modern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s one of our specialties. Our expert team is prepared to work with you to achieve safe, lasting, and superior results. 

What Is Lip Filler?

Just like dermal fillers, a lip filler works wonders with something we already have in our bodies: hyaluronic acid. It’s a slick, gel-like substance found almost everywhere but specifically in our eyes, skin, and joints. In essence, it’s what nature gave us to help things move smoothly, keep other things hydrated, and make our skin flexible. At Modern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s something we’ve mastered to comfortably address your specific goals and concerns. Not to mention, it’s one of our most popular treatments!


By attracting water to the area it’s injected into, lip filler can sharpen lip contour, balance lip asymmetry, and enhance or restore volume. Whether you desire a full look, bow, or heart, we can and will deliver. We give you the lips of your dreams. Lip filler treatments are quick and easy, too. After creating a gradual plan just for you, a topical numbing agent is applied. After ten minutes of relaxation, you receive your first injection via a fine needle. You won’t even know it’s there. Truly, it’s an opportunity to let go and allow us to do the work.

Who Is a Candidate for Lip Filler?

Many people are candidates for lip filler, but it’s important to consult with us to make sure that it’s a good fit for you. People who are good fits for this treatment are experiencing dissatisfaction with the current appearance of their lips, whether it’s due to flatness, thinness, or asymmetry. Candidates should be in good health and should be prepared to talk about their medical history with us to make sure that they don’t have underlying conditions that could complicate the treatment. Nonsmokers usually have better results than smokers do. Candidates are also people who are willing to talk with us about expectations and goals so we can give you the lips of your dreams. 

What to Expect During a Lip Filler Procedure

Lip filler treatments can usually be completed in under 30 minutes. Our team will go over preparation instructions with you so you can be ready to go on the day of the treatment. Generally, you should avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin before the procedure, as they can lead to excess bleeding. 

To eliminate discomfort, we’ll apply a numbing cream to the lips to ensure that you’re comfortable. The sensation of the injections might be strange, but they should not be painful. Using a fine needle, we will inject the filler into the lips and evaluate as we go to determine if more injections are needed.

Lip Filler Aftercare

After the treatment is completed, you should take it easy for the first couple of days by avoiding strenuous activity and exercise. Exercise can lead to more swelling of the treated area. Try to avoid touching the lips more than necessary to promote faster healing. Avoid applying lipstick or balms to the lips for at least one day after the treatment. Ice packs are a good at-home method to address any soreness or swelling. Our expert team will give you a detailed plan on how to take care of yourself at home and make sure that your lips are healing properly.


COMMON MYTH: Many people are concerned that lip fillers will permanently stretch their skin. They’re worried this would then force them to get follow-up treatments to reverse the issue. However, this simply isn’t true. As mentioned earlier, hyaluronic acid attracts water, moisturizing the area permanently. Not stretching it.
