Additional Facts

Who is a good candidate for Lip Augmentation?

Patients who want a fuller upper or lower lip with youthful projection yet maintaining a natural appearance.

What are Lip Augmentation contraindications?

Facial nerve disorders, recurrent herpes simplex lesions, uncontrolled medical problems as diabetes, hypertension or autoimmune disease, unrealistic expectations and pregnancy.

Note: A contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would cause the patient.

How is this procedure performed?

The procedure is done under local topical anesthesia. You do not need sedation or general anesthesia for lip augmentation. Actually, we prefer to have the patients awake and frequently looking in the mirror during the different stages of the procedure to make sure we meet their aesthetic goals and involve the patient in achieving the results they are looking for. Dermal fillers are injected into and around the upper and lower lips. Icing is performed before and after the procedure to decrease swelling and bruising.

How long does the effect last?

This varies based on the filler used and the patient but usually 9 months to a year.

What should I expect during recovery?

Mild swelling and bruising can occur, therefore, icing is recommended after the procedure. Some patients, with history of herpes, might experience reactivation of herpes lesions around the mouth which is treated with antiviral.

Where is the scar?

There is no incision or scar.

Dr. Akkary

I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have been seeing Dr. Akkary since 2014. The first day I was given his cell number...that has NEVER happened before at any other doctor's office. He is genuine and compassionate and really only wants to help you succeed. I have called him so many times and he has ALWAYS answered my questions. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I trust him and his staff completely. They will listen to all of your concerns and explain everything completely!

Great for anything in his speciality

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.

My acid reflux and GERD was curable

I never imagined that my acid reflux and GERD was curable. I truly never imagined the life changing results that something called a Nissan Fundoplication would bring to my life thanks to the skilled hands of Dr. Ehab Akkary! Thank you Doc!
