specialist discusses lip injections
Have you always craved fuller, well-defined lips? Maybe your lips have thinned? Whatever the case may be, Dr. Dass has the skills and proven products to safely, quickly, and effectively improve your lips (and the area around them). With lip injections, the before and after transformation our Los Angeles area patients have enjoyed is undeniable. Read on to find out how lip augmentation boosts your pout, overall appearance, and confidence.

Before Lip Injections

Over time, skin loses naturally-occurring building blocks such as collagen and hyaluronic acid, which provide structure. Just as these changes cause wrinkles and volume loss in other parts of the face, they can also result in noticeable vertical lines around the mouth and thinner lips. Sun exposure and habits like smoking accelerate age-related changes. Lip augmentation is also popular among younger patients who desire fuller, beautifully-shaped pouts that look great in selfies.

About Lip Injections

A Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Dass gets the results you desire after first assessing your lip symmetry, shape, and overall facial balance. He'll determine which areas on and around your lips need plumping. These sites may be injected with:
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC
  • Juvéderm Volbella XC,
Both Juvéderm products are formulated with lidocaine, but fillers are generally well-tolerated. The Ultra formulation is designed to add fullness and plumpness to aging or naturally thin lips, while Volbella is tailored to subtly boost lips and soften vertical lines that make you look older and more tired than your years.

After Lip Injections

You'll see immediate enhancement in the shape, volume, and appearance of the lips and lip area. By restoring lost hyaluronic acid, fillers also restore lost volume and reduce depressions and wrinkles. As beautiful as the results are, they don't last forever.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
