Form his latest interview:
Having plump pouty lips is more popular than ever. Dr. Adam Nadelson has perfected his natural non-surgical approach to lip augmentation with the use of HA fillers. From his Upper East Side, Manhattan office, we sit down with Dr. Adam Nadelson to have him help us answer 10 questions you all may have:
1. Does it hurt?
Many of my patients don’t complain of much pain, because we use a a topical anesthetic. On a scale of 1-10, most patients are a 2-3. The product I use has also been infused with a local anesthetic called Lidocaine.
2. How long does it take?
Our signature natural keyhole pout lip injection takes about 30 minutes. The procedure itself is only 10 minutes but preparation with paperwork and applying a topical anesthetic take up the other 20 minutes. Most importantly I take however much time is needed to give you an excellent result.
3. How long does it last?
Typically lip injections last 6 months.
4. Will be swollen after?
Everyone is different, some people swell up while others do not, swelling depends on multiple factors. Just because you didn’t swell one time, does not mean you will not swell the next time you do a treatment. HA products that I use naturally draw up water. After the injection it will suck up water from your tissue and it’s going to hold on to it for potentially a few days. If there is swelling, it typically lasts less than 3 days. To be safe I would plan to inject your lips at a week before any major event.
5. What about bruises?
Some people are pre-disposed to bruise, avoiding certain vitamins and herbs, alcohol, and NSAIDs (like ibuprofen) can decrease the chances of a bruise. Most bruising lasts 2-3 days but can last up to 2 weeks.
6. What is the product made of?
For my lip injections I exclusively use Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural type of sugar and its already in your body. It’s in your skin and your joints and it acts as a space filler. The product I use is safe and natural.
7. How do you avoid bad fillers?
Don’t have them done at a medspa at half the cost. You’ll thank me later! You want to go to somebody that is using the cutting edge latest techniques and order from only reputable sources, because there are products that are getting continually approved, and improved. There are three major companies and brands I work with: Juvederm (Allergan), Restylane (Galderma). So when you’re making this decision, make sure you’re going to someone who’s reputable and they’re using good quality product.
8. Can you kiss after getting lip injections?
Yes, you absolutely can. The first couple of days it is a little bit more sensitive, and so what I recommend is that when you go home you put ice on it and follow my directions.
9. I’ve heard about people having bumps…
Unfortunately bumps can happen! My technique and post injection care really help limit that from happening. Most bumps are small resolving bruises or some of the product. Usually these bumps respond well to massage or injections of a dissolver can be used in rare-instances to help get rid of these bumps.
10. When Can I book?
You can book with me anytime during office hours in my Manhattan practice. I do make house calls for special request.
