Lip Fillers

WHAT IT IS

Lip fillers are a non-surgical option that uses injectable substances, such as hyaluronic acid-based fillers, to add volume, shape, and definition to the lips.

Options we offer:

  • Revance® RHA® Dermal Fillers
  • JUVÉDERM® Collection of Fillers
  • RESTYLANE® Line of Fillers
  • Sculptra® Filler
  • Radiesse® Family of Dermal Fillers

HOW IT WORKS

During a lip filler treatment, a carefully selected filler solution is injected into specific areas of the lips to add volume and shape. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, is a common ingredient in lip fillers. It attracts and retains moisture, giving the lips a plump and hydrated appearance. The fillers are administered with precision and artistry to ensure natural-looking results that complement your facial features. Whether you desire fuller lips, more definition, or a subtle enhancement, Dr. Wenzel will work closely with you to understand your goals and tailor the treatment to your specific needs.

The results of fillers are usually visible immediately after the treatment, and the procedure is generally well-tolerated. However, patients may experience mild side effects such as redness, swelling, or discomfort at the injection site. The duration of the results can vary depending on the specific type of filler used and the treated area, lasting from several months to over a year. It’s important to discuss any potential allergies or medical conditions beforehand.

Dr. Wenzel meticulously administers lip fillers at our clinic in Western North Carolina with precision, ensuring beautiful, natural-looking results. Schedule a consultation to determine if lip fillers are right for you.

PermaLip Implant™

WHAT IT IS

For those seeking a more permanent solution, lip implants offer a long-lasting option to enhance lip volume and shape. We use the SurgiSil PermaLip Implant™, which provides a permanent alternative to repetitive, costly, and painful filler injections and strives to overcome the potential complications of permanent injectable and solid implants.

The PermaLip Implant is contoured, has a smooth surface to minimize tissue ingrowth, and is made of soft, solid silicone. These implants are carefully placed within the lips to achieve the desired lip appearance, and the procedure is reversible. Dr. Wenzel works with each patient to determine the most suitable lip implant option for your desired outcome, ensuring optimal results that enhance your facial aesthetics.

HOW IT WORKS

During the lip implant procedure, a small incision is made in the corners of the mouth, and the implants are delicately inserted into the lips. The incisions are then closed with sutures. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort.

Dr. Wenzel and our staff will guide you through the entire process, from the initial consultation to the post-operative care, ensuring that you are well informed and comfortable every step of the way. Schedule a consultation to experience the transformative power of lip implants and enhance your natural beauty.

Lip Lift Surgery

WHAT IT IS

Lip lift surgery is an advanced cosmetic procedure to enhance the lips’ shape, proportion, and youthfulness. This surgery addresses concerns such as a thin upper lip, elongated distance between the nose and upper lip, also known as the “philtral columns,” and an overall lack of definition in the lip area. This procedure not only enhances the volume and definition of the lips but also helps to restore balance and harmony to your facial features. At Wenzel Facial Plastic Surgery, we understand that every individual is unique. Lip lift surgery is tailored to each patient’s specific goals and facial anatomy for natural-looking results that beautifully rejuvenate your lips.

HOW IT WORKS

In your initial consultation, Dr. Wenzel will evaluate your concerns, discuss the procedure in detail, and provide personalized recommendations based on your desired outcomes. During the surgery, a small incision is made discreetly at the base of the nose, hidden within the natural crease. Through this incision, Dr. Wenzel will carefully remove a precise amount of skin to elevate the upper lip, revealing a more pronounced and attractive shape. The procedure also involves the careful repositioning of the muscles and tissues to achieve optimal balance and proportion. Shortening the distance between the nose and upper lip brings the lip forward, giving it a fuller and more youthful appearance. Contact us to schedule a consultation for this transformative procedure.

Lip Flip

WHAT IT IS

The lip flip is a revolutionary procedure that can enhance the appearance of your lips without surgery or implants. This non-invasive treatment utilizes injectable neurotoxins, such as Botox®, to achieve a subtle-yet-noticeable improvement in lip fullness and shape. Lip flips can help patients achieve natural-looking results that enhance the lip’s contour and create a more balanced and attractive smile. At Wenzel Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer lip flips as a safe and effective solution for those seeking a quick and non-surgical way to enhance their lip aesthetics.

HOW IT WORKS

During a lip flip procedure, a small amount of injectable neurotoxin is strategically administered into the muscles around the upper lip. This relaxes the muscles and causes the upper lip to gently roll outwards, creating the illusion of increased volume and a more defined border. The treatment can also help reduce the appearance of a “gummy smile” by slightly lowering the upper lip to expose less gum tissue when smiling. The procedure is quick and virtually painless, with minimal downtime, allowing you to enjoy immediate results and return to your daily activities with little interruption. Contact our office to schedule your lip flip procedure today.

FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

Lip Implants: Lip implants offer a more permanent enhancement. However, lip implants can be removed with additional surgery. If, for any reason, you wish to have the implants removed or adjusted, Dr. Wenzel can discuss potential options during a consultation.

Lip Fillers: While lip fillers are temporary and naturally metabolized by the body over time, a dissolving treatment can be injected to reduce or adjust the effect of some fillers. The longevity of lip filler results can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used, individual metabolism, and lifestyle factors. Typically, lip fillers last between six months to a year. Regular maintenance treatments can help sustain the desired results over time.

Lip Lift Surgery: In most cases, lip lifts are one-time procedures that last for several years. The results will vary according to your anatomy and the amount of skin lifted.

Lip Flips: The outcome of a lip flip is temporary and typically lasts for around three to four months. Regular maintenance treatments can help sustain the results.

Yes, lip fillers and implants are considered safe when performed by experienced professionals in a clinical setting. Our modern and innovative clinic prioritizes your safety and only uses high-quality products that regulatory authorities have approved.

Lip fillers can be customized to achieve your desired outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Wenzel will discuss your goals and expectations.
