What is Lip Augmentation, Lip Enhancement, or Lip Injection?
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size, shape, and definition of the lips. Lip fillers, also known as dermal filers or lip injections are used to add volume to the lips which can create a fuller, more youthful appearance. You will want your lips to maintain the same proportion and look natural. Over-filling may result in protruding lips with an undesirable “ducky” appearance.

Common Reasons To Consider Lip Augmentation, Lip Enhancement, or Lip Injection
You may find yourself thinking of trying this procedure if:
– Enhancing naturally thin lips is something you’ve always thought about.
– Lips have thinned out or wrinkled due to age.
– Fuller lips would add balance and symmetry to your face.
– You’re looking for a cost-effective and safe way to treat yourself.
Considering the demand for lip injections, the procedure still has people confused as to what it is and what it isn’t. We’ve all seen those Instagram pictures of lips that had us wondering if it was photoshop or something more, and it makes sense that you’d have concerns. Rest assured that with Dr. Numa dermal fillers & lip augmentation expert in Boston, MA, lip augmentation is incredibly low risk. We can debunk some of the most common lip enhancement myths in this post and if you have further questions, Dr. Numa can discuss them with you during your consultation.
How Often Will I Need To Get Lip Filler?
A major misconception about lip fillers is the idea is that the best lip augmentation treatment will require you to maintain your lips by continuing to get injections for the rest of your life. Sounds like a commitment! However, this isn’t the case. This myth is based on the idea that filler stretches your lips and leaves them saggy once it wears off.
Although it’s true that the filler that we inject into the lips does dissolve over time, the use of hyaluronic acid will stimulate your body’s ability to produce collagen for your lips. Even if you choose to never undergo another procedure, your lips will remain fuller than they would have been otherwise due to this natural stimulation of collagen.
How Much Does Lip Enhancement Cost In Boston?
Compared to other varieties of plastic surgery, lip injection, lip augmentation, lip filler cost is surprisingly affordable. Depending on the exact specifications of your procedure, which will vary based on your specific goals, the procedure in our Boston office can be done for anywhere between $500 and $2,000 dollars.

Will My Lip Filler Look Natural? How Do I Avoid Overdone Lips?

Let us know the look you’re dreaming of and how you’d like to enhance your lips, and we’ll come up with a plan to help create that look while still allowing your lips to appear natural.
What to Expect from Your Lip Filler Treatment
- Patients with a history of cold sores should pre-medicate before the treatment.
- First, the area will be will numbed up by using a local anesthetic. This will help minimize any discomfort during the treatment.
- Once numb, the filler will be injected directly into the lips and/or the vermillion border- the line where the red part of the lip meets the white one. Based on each patient’s needs and desired outcome, the technique and amount of filler used may vary.
- After the filler has been injected, Dr. Numa may gently massage areas to evenly distribute the filler.
- Patients can resume normal activities and should drink a lot of fluids post-injection. Although hot beverages and foods should be avoided as numbing may linger for upwards of 45 minutes post-treatment.
- Ice may be used to alleviate any swelling or soreness for the first 48 hours.
- The patient should not rub or massage the area for the first 48 hours.
“The goal for lip augmentation is to enhance your entire look rather than to just increase the size of your lips”

Are Lip Injections Painful?

Once you’re home, recovery should be a breeze. You won’t even need to take time off work. Mild swelling is a completely normal side effect from the injections and should last between 12 to 48 hours.
