Lip Implants

In Long Island


Lip Implants

During the normal aging process, the lips change in size and shape. Volume is lost and muscles lose their strength throughout this process. All of this can lead to a less youthful look, exacerbated by fine lines and wrinkles on the skin surrounding the lips. But your face is an important aspect of your appearance, and lips can be a prominent feature that draws in the eye. There is a permanent procedure that can restore youthful volume to your lips – a lip implant. Lip implants are a form of lip enhancement that involves creating small incisions in the corners of the mouth. Into which silicone implants can be placed.

Dr. Cohn routinely sees Lip Implant patients from all over Nassau County, Suffolk County, Long Island, and even from Manhattan. His boutique office is located in Smithtown, New York, making it a convenient destination for any Lip Implant patients on the North Shore.

Lip Implant Basics

What are Lip Implants?

A Lip implant is a procedure that brings permanent volume to your lips, by inserting implants through a surgical incision. Lip implants are made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer. Its natural contour and surface properties ensure a natural appearance and reduce the chances of tissue ingrowth. Lip implants in Long Island do not rupture or deflate. And while it provides a permanent solution for lip enhancement, it can be removed at any time. Lip Implants are available in a range of sizes to enable customized results.

Who are the best candidates for the Lip Implant procedure?

If you are considering getting lip implants, you’ll want to meet with Dr. Cohn who can assess your lip goals as well as the current status of your lips and overall health. A good candidate for lip implants is often someone who:

  • Has overall good health
  • Has generally symmetrical lip shape
  • Has enough lip tissue to cover an implant
  • May be tired of getting temporary lip fillers or have difficulty with needles

Call us today for a consultation to learn whether you are the right candidate for a lip implant in Long Island.

What are the benefits of Lip Implants?

Before getting lip implants, it’s important to understand what they can and cannot do. Lip implants can:

  • Increase the total distance from the top of the top lip to the bottom of the bottom lip, also known as the vermilion height
  • Add volume to the lips
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles on and around the lips
  • Change the number of teeth shown when you smile

Lip implants cannot:

  • Correct lip asymmetry (lip fillers such as hyaluronic acid are preferred)
  • Be used to plump “razor-thin” lips, where lips have insufficient tissue to fit even the smallest implant

First Steps

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting Lip Implants in Long Island is to book a consultation with Dr. Cohn. When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Cohn will examine your lips, answer any questions you may have about the procedure, and discuss your medical history. It’s important to be open and honest during your consultation so that we can avoid any unnecessary risks. 

If you wish to move forward with your procedure, Dr. Cohn will create your surgical plan and our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you select a procedure date that works best for you. We will also supply you with a list of instructions that will help you have the most effective and safe surgery possible.

What to expect on the day of Lip Implant surgery

On the day of your procedure, Dr. Cohn will walk you through the steps as you prepare for surgery. First, the skin is sterilized around the surgical area. Next, the lips are anesthetized. Once the lips are numb, an incision is made in each corner of the mouth.

A tunnel in the lip is created using a clamping tool. The lip tunnel carefully follows the shape of the lip. Once the curved clamp has reached the end of the tunnel, the clamp opens. The implant is grasped and dragged into the lip tunnel. The implant is positioned underneath the lip fat and above the lip muscles. Once the implants are in place, the incisions are closed with one or two absorbable sutures.

The duration of the implant insertion procedure can be between 30 minutes to an hour, and you will be able to go home on the day of the procedure.

Lip Implants recovery

After the procedure, plan on around three days of recovery time. During this time, your lips will be swollen, numb, and potentially bruised. Drinking, eating, and talking may be difficult. Over-the-counter pain medication and icing can help reduce discomfort. Dr. Cohn may recommend:

  • Elevating your head while you sleep
  • A diet of soft foods
  • Minimize talking, eating, and mouth movements for the first few days
  • Use ice packs and/or pain medication as needed
  • Gently applying lip balm

Dr. Cohn will discuss your recovery period in detail during your consultation.
