Lip Injections
San Diego

Lip augmentation in San Diego is performed with dermal fillers, carefully injected to add volume, shape, and definition to thinner lips.

Lip augmentation is currently one of the most popular of all facial treatments, but should be performed by a certified, expert injector to avoid an unnatural, overfilled look.

Lip Enhancement For
Plumper, More Attractive Lips.

Thin lips can be very damaging to self-esteem if you consider full lips to be sexy and more attractive. Thin lips are usually hereditary, although some patients may experience thinning of the lips due to aging. At Avalon Laser, we offer Juvéderm lip fillers in San Diego for results that look and feel completely natural and can last up to one year.


How Is
Lip Augmentation

First, your practitioner will look closely at your lips to determine the correct amount of filler to use and the ideal locations for your injections. An antibacterial compound will be applied to ensure the lips are clean and ready for augmentation. In some cases, a topical anesthetic can be used to render your treatment painless and stress-free. We then inject your lips, adding supple volume and smoothing out lip lines for a beautiful, feminine pout.

The length of your procedure will depend on the precise number of injections you receive but typically does not exceed 20 minutes. After a half-hour, any topical numbing agent will begin to dissipate. Many clients come into the office over their lunch break for treatment, knowing they can get right back to work or school without missing a beat.

Dr. Tirgari Explains Lip Fillers

What Is The Cost
Of Lip Fillers?

Lip augmentation begins at $600 but the cost may vary depending on your needs and wants as well as your unique anatomy.

How Do
Lip Fillers Work?

Lip fillers are most often formulated with hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible compound that is an innate component of youthful, radiant skin. As we age, our natural supply of hyaluronic acid begins to diminish, causing deflation in the lips as well as fine lines and creases. Once injected, HA gathers moisture, plumping the lip contours and creating a smooth, firm texture. Our highly trained injectors never overfill; instead, they tailor your treatment to your wishes for subtle, nuanced enhancement in the smile.

What Are The Potential
Complications With Lip Injections?

Minor swelling and bruising after lip injections are considered normal side effects and usually don’t last more than a few days. Serious reactions are rarer, but may include swelling that lasts longer. If you experience swelling that concerns you, or you develop a fever after your treatment, you should contact us right away.

Hyaluronic acid-based fillers typically result in minimal swelling and bruising when compared to other types of injectables. Furthermore, because the HA in lip fillers mimics the hyaluronic acid found organically in the human body, there is little incidence of allergic reactions.

What Is Fat Transfer
Lip Augmentation?

When it comes to natural-looking lip enhancement, fat transfer (also called fat injections, autologous lip augmentation, or fat grafting) is an excellent alternative to lip fillers and lip implants. During the process, fat is harvested from areas of the body where it is unwanted, such as the hips, belly, or thighs.

It is then purified and sterilized before being injected into the lips to create a fuller, more youthful, and alluring smile. A fat transfer lip augmentation can have multiple benefits, including softer, smoother lips and increased self-confidence. The treatment is done in-office under local anesthesia and takes around 1 hour. Results typically last up to 5 years.

What Is Recovery Like
After Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation does not require any recovery time. Patients can enjoy their beautiful, full lips right away. Some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising, which subsides very quickly, usually within the first 24 hours.
