General Questions

To answer a very frequently asked question: yes, lip fillers are safe and have been approved by the FDA.

In short, the answer is you will get as much filler is needed to accomplish your lip filler goals. A common question we get is ‘Is a full syringe of filler too much?’. One syringe is approximately ⅕ of a tsp of filler per 1cc syringe which is not a lot of volume. Some of the mystique around lip injections is related to swelling and volume. A small amount of lip filler injection material can cause short-term swelling which will be minimized with oral steroids, ice, and best practices in reducing swelling. While we can inject very small amounts of lip filler during each session, it is recommended to use the amount of filler needed to obtain your goal lip shape and aesthetics.

The augmentation process itself takes about 30 minutes in our Upper East Side office and is performed by cosmetic nurse injector, Nurse Fay. We offer a topical anesthetic to ensure patients are completely comfortable during their appointment. The procedure starts by numbing the area of concern followed by the filler itself which has built in lidocaine for an enjoyable and restful injection experience. Your comfort is our top priority! While you numb, Nurse Fay will discuss all of your concerns with you as well as your aesthetic goals. She will assess your lips natural anatomy and give an honest recommendation and a course of action that will help you achieve the lips you’ve always desired!

Looking for an alternative to lip injections (or an add on!) that will provide a subtle enhancement and lift? A lip flip might be the right option for you! Offered in our office on the Upper East Side, a lip flip is a less invasive procedure that requires precise placement of a wrinkle relaxer along the upper lip muscle near the border. This relaxes the muscle in turn making the upper lip appear more visible. This creates a fuller, plumper, natural upper lift.

Dermal fillers are made of safe ingredients that have been developed for injection into the skin.

Many of these face fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural compound found in our body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin.
