Get Fuller, Better-Defined Lips in Grand Rapids. Thin lips pressed together in a straight line often indicate frustration, anger, or general discomfort. Full, round lips, however, are considered by many to be a sign of youth and beauty.

At the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids lip injections can give virtually anyone a more generous frame for their smile, whether they have lived with thin lips their entire life or have watched as volume disappeared over time.

Since no two patients' lips are the same, when it comes to lip injections Grand Rapids patients have several options. A key element of the Bengtson Center approach to facial aesthetics is getting to know you as an individual and shaping your treatment to both your unique face and personal cosmetic goals—all while keeping to the Bengtson Center philosophy of natural-looking restoration.

What Determines Lip Shape and Size?

There are two answers to the question of what determines the shape and size of an individual's lips.

The first is a combination of genetics and time. The details of each person's lips are a matter of heredity, meaning your mom and dad—and their parents before them—played a significant role in how your lips developed. That said, even people with plump, well-rounded lips will find them thinning as they age. Collagen and hyaluronic acid are two vital elements of healthy, hydrated, and happy lips and skin, but both collagen and hyaluronic acid are found in increasingly short supply as the years go by.

The second is you. If you are unhappy with how your lips look, no matter if genetics or age are to blame, you can decide to make a change, which means you yourself are an important (if not the most important) factor when it comes to the look of your lips. Limp or luscious? It's up to you. Simple lip injections administered by an extensively trained Aesthetic Expert at the Bengtson Center can make a difference. That training is important. The results from injectables are only as good as the person behind the needle, which is why our injectors focus not just on getting to where they are now, but on constantly improving their technique. This devotion to ongoing training sets us apart from med spas and gimmicky promotions.

What is Used for Lip Injectionsin Grand Rapids

There are several options for adding volume to lips in need of plumping. While the go-to choice for lip injections used to be collagen, modern medical advances have produced safe, more reliable formulas that yield natural-looking results with little to no fear of allergic reactions.

  • JUVÉDERM Ultra XC Made by Allergan, manufacturer of the popular wrinkle-smoothing BOTOX Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM Ultra XC is a hyaluronic acid-based filler designed for lip injections. HA molecules have a particular attraction to water molecules, so the filler is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to have full, moist, plump lips. Results can last up to a year.
  • Restylane For patients older than 21, Restylane is another hyaluronic acid-based option for lip injections. This filler can also be used around the mouth and nose area to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and other lines. The Bengtson Center's Master Injectors and Aesthetic Experts are experienced in both options for lip injections and can help you determine which would be best for you.
  • Fat Grafting Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Brad Bengtson and Dr. David Alfonso, can remove a patient's fat from one area with liposuction then refine the fat cells to prepare them to be returned to the body elsewhere, where more volume is desired. A very small amount can be used for lip injections, providing a subtle, natural-looking result that your body welcomes, since the filler is actually your own cells.
