Lip Implants

You want fuller lips that have a more defined shape. Lip implants give you an improved look that's permanent, so you can enjoy an enhanced appearance without having to worry about getting a "touch-up".

What lip implants can do for you
  • Augment the size of your lips.
  • Give you better shape.
  • Make your lips fuller and more prominent.
What makes your lip implant procedure at Gartner Plastic Surgery unique

1. Your surgery may be performed under local or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia can make your experience more comfortable, as the recovery period is less intensive.

2. The type and shape of your lip implants are customized by Dr. Gartner. That means you'll receive implants that are designed specifically for you.

3. Absorbable sutures are used to close your incisions, so you won't have to deal with the discomfort or hassle of having stitches removed.
