6 Things You Should Know About Lip Fillers And Your Options
1. You need to have an idea of what you want your lips to look like. Don’t be afraid to show your physician pictures of your ideal lips, but keep in mind that your lips will NEVER look exactly like someone else’s. Yours will just be a more voluminous version of your lips, although skilled plastic surgeons can change the symmetry with fillers.
2. Don’t trust your lips to just any old run of the mill med spa. If you want to look like a normal human being, you need to see a qualified plastic surgeon and their highly-trained staff for anything that pertains to your face and body for that matter.
3. Decide if the look you want is conservative and natural or more voluminous. It’s wise to start out more conservative and go from there with touch ups if necessary. Your lips will initially look fuller due to swelling. Once that subsides, your lip fullness will last a significant amount of time.
4. If you are taking any daily aspirin, Omega-3 fatty acid, vitamin E or gingko biloba, you should stop a week prior to getting filler, as these all thin the blood and can cause bruising. Check with your doctor if you have questions about stopping your blood thinner prescription.
5. Making your appointment at a time that allows you to have a few days of no major social outings is probably ideal given that you might be a little swollen the first few days.
6. If you’re not ready for fillers, there are fantastic professional, medical-grade treatments and topicals to plump and exfoliate your lips. Botox can also be used around the lips to enhance their shape and to treat wrinkles.
