Lip Augmentation San Diego / Del Mar / La Jolla - Dr Chasan
San Diego Lip augmentation is a procedure performed to give fullness and projection to thin lips. As one of the most accomplished San Diego / La Jolla lip augmentation specialists, Dr. Chasan uses multiple fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm and Silicone Oil. Dr. Chasan has had an interest in lip augmentation for many years. He has performed and tried just about every available lip procedure, surgery, and filler in his Del Mar / La Jolla office.
Although there are surgical procedures that can result in the augmentation of lips, most are associated with serious complications and a significant downtime. In this day and age of multiple fillers, there is no good reason to have a surgical procedure when filler will have the same or better result with minimal downtime. In my experience, fat injections are also unpredictable, often resulting in temporary augmentation with a lot of swelling, and a significant recovery time.
Lip Augmentation in San Diego / Del Mar / La Jolla
The mainstay for temporary (4 months) lip augmentation is Juvederm — a mucopolysaccharide that is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It is well tolerated and produces beautiful results. For those San Diego lip augmentation patients who desire a more permanent augmentation, Dr. Chasan offers Silicone Oil. Injectable-grade Silicone Oil has been available for about ten years. It has an excellent safety record and produces the most natural and near permanent lip augmentation in his plastic surgery center in Del Mar / La Jolla.
It is very important that your surgeon be experienced with silicone oil. There are very few doctors who have had as much experience with silicone oil as Dr. Chasan. He has been using it for a decade. Dr. Chasan has published a paper on the uses of silicone oil in the prestigious Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery - see the published articles section of the website. It may take two to three sessions to obtain the desired fullness. The procedure takes approximately ten minutes to perform under local anesthesia, and there is very little recovery time.
