With so many different topics in the world of plastic surgery, sometimes we forget to cover some of the most basic treatments we offer. Here at Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Cherry Hill, NJ, lip fillers remain one of the most popular procedures in past years. Whether it’s making lips look more plump or youthful, there are a few basic concepts you should understand about fillers.
Have you been confused seeing tons of different lip filler products and techniques on social media? Dr. Davis is here to break down exactly what’s going on.
Before you go into your local plastic surgery office, always ask your surgeon which products they are using and why. We’re here to let you know each product is used for a different purpose with a specific technique.
Hi everyone. With all the different things that we do here at Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, I sometimes forget to talk about some basic things that we do almost every single day. And one of those happens to be facial fillers and injectables. And in particular, lips. I’m sure most of you know, how popular of a procedure that is now to have your lips injected to make them look more youthful, to make them look fuller.
Well, let me just explain a couple of things too that I think is important. Part of the training, if you will, that I do across this area and before COVID-19, I used to go and travel around to train other physicians and nurses and physician assistants in how to do injectables.
And one of the things that became very, very obvious to me is that there are different techniques that people talk about all the time, and if you’re watching Instagrams and if you’re doing anything like that online, you’ll see that there’s a lot of different ways to have your lips injected.
But I wanna make sure that you understand two very important things about that. Number one, what’s the product that’s being placed in the lips? That’s a big question because there are a lot of different products that are on the market now that are all very good, but they all have a specific reason to be placed.
One could be, the patient just, which could be you, you just don’t like the vertical lip lines that are around your lips. And because of that, you may wanna use a special kind of a lip filler. Others of you may want to have your lips made bigger, bolder, more, you know, youthful overall, that may be another type of product. So that’s the first thing.
Make sure when you’re going to get your lips injected that you’re asking, what kind of product are you using and why are you choosing to use that. The second thing is the technique that’s being used to generate the look that you want is very important.
And when I’m still doing some of my trainings, either virtually or in-person, we definitely go through that all the time to make sure that we’re getting a very sharp border, so it’s almost like a lip liner for some patients. And in other patients, we’re using a technique that may actually roll out the top lip and roll down the bottom to get more of a pouting look.
So I think as you watch some of our Instagrams that are gonna be coming out and some of our videos, you’ll get a chance to see how I’m employing all those different techniques, based on what you, the patient wanna see. So stay tuned.
Dr. Steven Davis of Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Cherry Hill, New Jersey wants to ensure the comfort of all patients, which begins with education. We hope our video series can provide useful information for those with upcoming appointments or interested in the behind-the-scenes action of plastic surgery.
