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 Brooklyn lip filler expert Dr. Renata Khelemsky specializes in surgical and nonsurgical lip filler procedures to create the perfect pout.
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.
Before receiving your lip fillers Brooklyn 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.
“Dr. Khelemsky brings the “art” of medicine to a whole new level. She is a perfectionist that took her time with my procedure. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. My surgery was on a Friday morning, and Dr. Khelemsky came in on both Saturday and Sunday to ensure that I was healing appropriately and my pain was being managed… I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the results even now.”
“Dr. Renata Khelemsky did an amazing job with my rhinoplasty. In the consultation, she identified what changes would be made to best work for my face and listened to my concerns. I am so happy with the results and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in this procedure.”
“Dr. Khelemsky is an amazing doctor and artist. She did my filler and I am so happy with it. I will recommend her to everyone I know. She explains everything so that you can understand.”
“Dr. Khelemsky is an outstanding physician... She herself is very calming and makes you feel at ease and confident in the decision you are making. I am overjoyed with the results of my facelift, and would definitely do it again. If someone is thinking about a facelift or any procedure and is apprehensive... Dr. Khelemsky will give you great reassurance… When I look in the mirror, in Zoom, in selfies - I now love my jawline and my whole face in general.”
“Awesome! She was patient and very quick with no pain. She explained everything thoroughly with me and definitely knows her skill set! I trusted her expertise in natural-looking adjustments and it turned out fantastic!”
“I love coming to see Dr. Kelemsky! She has the patient’s best interest in mind and I always feel Dr. Kelemsky addresses what look I am going for and is right on the money. I walk out of the office feeling much more confident than when I came in. I will always trust Dr. Kelemsky and she most definitely has a patient for life. She does both my Botox and lip fillers and both procedures have always been flawless.”
“Dr. Khelemsky did an outstanding job on my nose. She explained everything in detail from the very first consultation. She’s professional, caring and her attention to detail makes her the absolute best surgeon! I’m extremely happy with my results and highly recommend her to anyone.”
“I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. She was extremely professional, answered all my questions before my Botox and injectable treatment. There was very little discomfort and hardly any bruising at all. I am thrilled with the results and will use her again for future treatment. I would highly recommend her.”
“My experience was great! Dr. K is very good at explaining her vision for results with injectable fillers. She is warm and friendly and a delight to chat with. It has been years since I have had a “real” Doctor sit and talk and do an almost painless procedure.”
“I recently had eyelid surgery performed by Dr. Khelemsky… From the moment I saw her in the surgery center I felt at ease and knew everything was going to be OK. The surgery went well… Referred by my eye doctor, my eyesight is better already. I look forward to recommending my family and friends to Dr. Khelemsky, she has the qualities that everyone seeks out in a true medical professional.”
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 treatments have little to no downtime. Often the only downtime is waiting for the swelling and possibly bruising to subside. However, Brooklyn 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.
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.
Lip fillers are a simple cosmetic procedure with a high satisfaction rate. Patients can customize their treatments in a number of way to achieve their personal goals. Learn more about lip fillers and schedule a personalized consultation with Dr. Renata Khelemsky today.

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.
