Your consultation is an opportunity for you to meet with Dr. Kaplan at our Fort Lauderdale office and discuss the lip augmentation procedure, your options should you decide to have the procedure and any risks and side effects. Dr. Kaplan will take a detailed medical history and will ask you questions to determine your goals and expectations for this procedure. Working together, you and Dr. Kaplan will determine whether lip augmentation is a good option for you.
If you decide to move forward, your augmentation procedure will be scheduled. We perform most surgical and nonsurgical procedures right here in our Fort Lauderdale office. Dr. Kaplan will review your self-care instructions for both the days preceding your procedure and immediately afterward.
Lip augmentation can be done using a number of different synthetic or natural materials — including fat from your own body. Dr. Kaplan will discuss the different advantages of each type of material and work with you to determine which one is best for you and your individual needs.
Some types of augmentation materials are injected directly into your lips. The plumping effect may be temporary depending on the material and require further treatments for upkeep. One type of material, called Alloderm, is made up of natural collagen and is placed through small incisions made in the corners of your mouth. This type of implant is more permanent and eventually integrates with your own natural tissues.
Depending on the procedure used, you could be up and moving immediately following your procedure. If your lip augmentation involved surgery, you can expect some rest and recovery time to avoid altering your results. These procedures usually require about one week of reduced activity.
Follow Dr. Kaplan’s instructions for self-care following your lip augmentation procedure and keep all your follow-up appointments. These appointments are important because they help Dr. Kaplan track your healing following your procedure and also help him determine when you are due for additional injections if you are using one of the less permanent methods of augmentation.
