Lip Fillers

Pucker Up with Fuller Lips

Visit RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery for lip fillers.

Your heredity plays a great role in defining your facial features, including the lips. Lifestyle habits such as smoking and sun exposure may also influence the youthfulness of your lips. Whatever the cause, the size and shape of your lips help to create the physical and emotional basis of your facial appearance, causing you to look happy or sad and even to communicate your thoughts and emotions.

So, much like fingerprints, your “lip prints” are entirely unique and reflect an aesthetic quality and style of the face. At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in New York lip filler expert Dr. Renata Khelemsky specializes in surgical and nonsurgical lip filler procedures to create the perfect pout.

What are lip fillers?


A variety of fillers can be used to add volume, define the Cupid’s Bow, enhance the border, or smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Most lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which mimics a naturally occurring substance in the body to plump and gives the appearance of fuller, more defined lips. Additionally, neuromodulators such as Botox can be used to roll out the lip and increase the lip height by one to two millimeters. This procedure is known as a “lip flip” and can be combined with dermal fillers in the same treatment session.

How do I know if lip fillers are right for me?

Assesment of your lips

Before receiving your lip fillers New York Master Injector, Dr. Khelemsky, assesses your lip size and shape and determines which filler will offer the best results based on your aesthetic goals. Additionally, the use of neuromodulators such as Botox will be considered. The two most requested fillers for lip filler are Restylane and Juvederm. Fillers and Botox can be used individually or in combination to achieve various results.

Lip Filler Procedure


Dr. Khelemsky provides pre-treatment instructions to maximize your experience with lip fillers. Patients are advised to avoid blood-thinning medications such as ibuprofen, vitamin E, or fish oil for ten days before their scheduled treatment. In addition, patients are advised to refrain from alcohol before and after treatment to additionally reduce swelling and bruising. Dr. Khelemsky may apply a topical numbing cream on the day of treatment to keep you comfortable since the lips can be a highly sensitive area.

For patients receiving lip fillers, Brooklyn master injector, Dr. Khelemsky, prefers the use of gentle fine-tipped cannulas for injection, and many patients find that numbing cream is no longer needed to tolerate the treatment. The advantage is that patients feel more comfortable, have less bruising, and save time when presenting for their treatment. Dr. Khelemsky uses a fine gauge microcannula to inject the filler along the upper and lower lips in precise areas. This process repeats until the desired amount of filler is injected, which is typically one to two syringes.

Lip Filler Recovery

Lip filler treatments have little to no downtime. Often the only downtime is waiting for the swelling and possibly bruising to subside. However, lip filler patients can return to their usual daily activities immediately after treatment. After several hours, make-up may be applied to the treated areas to lessen any redness or bruising that may appear. Filler may take several weeks to settle, and patients can begin to assess their final result after this time. Dr. Khelemsky also recommends gentle massage of any early lumps or bumps, as well as avoiding extreme heat, excess salt, or direct sun exposure following filler treatments for up to one week.

Lip Filler Results

The results of lip fillers are immediate. However, a lip flip using Botox takes about seven days to be fully apparent. Some patients may experience minor swelling or bruising, which subsides after several days and can be camouflaged with makeup or powder. Lip filler enhancements are one of the most common and simple to perform cosmetic treatments with an exceedingly high satisfaction rate. Depending on the filler you receive, lip fillers generally lasts six months to one year. Additional treatments may be needed to maintain optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Khelemsky specializes in providing an exceptionally comfortable experience during your lip filler session. One option is to use topical numbing cream for approximately 30 to 45 minutes before treatment. Another option is to use a gentle injection technique, like the one preferred by Dr. Khelemsky using a fine-tipped cannula. With a cannula, needle sticks are minimized, and the fillers are evenly and gently applied across the lips.

Lip fillers also contain lidocaine, which provides instant numbing to the lips at the beginning of the treatment, greatly increasing comfort throughout the session. Any lip soreness after treatment subsides within a day or two.

Lip flip and dermal filler treatments are safe and effective with minimal risks. However, some side effects may include soreness, temporary swelling, light bruising, and asymmetry that may be corrected in a touch-up session. Exceedingly rare side effects include allergy or infection at the injection sites.

During your consultation, Dr. Khelemsky personalizes a treatment plan for your lip filler based on your goals. During this time, she will recommend the number of treatments needed to achieve your goal and how much filler or Botox is necessary. Dr. Khelemsky and her team will also discuss the cost of treatment, which varies with each patient based on their aesthetic objectives.
