NYC Lip Filler Injection


Everyone in New York City is getting lip filler these days! Pouty full lips are considered youthful and desired by many. Large, highly defined Cupid’s Bows on the upper lip are the new trend in beauty standards and high fashion.

Lip enhancement procedures are very popular with both men and women who might be insecure about their thin lips or want to achieve fuller lips or more defined lips for any reason. Whether you were born with thin or disproportionate lips, or you’re finding that your lips are losing volume and definition as you age, we have the perfect NYC lip filler injection procedures for you.

Top quality, FDA-approved lip augmentation products such as Juvéderm Ultra XC, Botox, and other dermal fillers are administered on-site by our board-certified doctors here at Great City Medical in NYC. These products reduce the appearance of fine lines and lip lines and create fuller, more youthful lips.

Gone are the days of overdone faces and puffy duck lips. Our professional NYC doctors will work carefully with you throughout the lip augmentation procedure to ensure that you achieve an enhanced but natural lip shape that works for your unique facial anatomy and makes you look and feel your best.

How Do Lip Fillers Work?


Most lip fillers today are injectables made of hyaluronic acid, a gel-like product that is naturally occurring in the body in places such as the skin, connective tissue, and the fluids of the eyes. Hyaluronic acid helps with hydration and locks in moisture in the lips. It has also been shown to increase the body’s production of collagen, resulting in more youthful, plump lips.

Hyaluronic acid lip fillers are some of the best products on the market. They are long-lasting, highly customizable, very natural looking, and very safe for most people.

Before your procedure, a doctor may apply some numbing cream to your lips or inject a small amount of local anesthetic to your mouth area. Then, they will inject small amounts of lip filler to your desired areas in your lips.


How Long Do Lip Fillers Typically Last?


Our NYC lip filler injection process is very quick and typically takes less than 30 minutes. The effects are long-lasting, with one treatment with Juvéderm hyaluronic acid filler lasting around 6-9 months.

The hyaluronic acid is slowly broken down and absorbed by the body over time, so the effects of the lip fillers will eventually go away if you do not maintain their appearance with regular appointments.


How Often Should I Get Lip Fillers?


After your first lip injection appointment, we recommend scheduling a follow-up visit to ensure your lips are healing well and that you get the aesthetic results you desire. Your doctor can perform any touch-ups or modifications if necessary.

Our lip fillers are long-lasting, but they do not last forever! After your first appointment, we recommend returning for additional treatment at least every 6-9 months for best results. Repeat appointments every 6-9 months will ensure that your new lip shape continues to look full and beautiful. The filler will be broken down by the body and the effects will go away over time if you do not receive regular lip filler injections every 6-9 months.


What is the Cost of Lip Injections?


The total cost of lip injections depends on the amount of filler desired and the product used.
At Great City Medical, our favorite injection product is Juvéderm Ultra XC, one of the best lip fillers on the market. Juvéderm Ultra XC is a hyaluronic acid-based lip filler.

Typically, one syringe of Juvéderm Ultra XC costs about $600. One syringe is usually enough for both the upper lip and lower lip of one person.

Our lip fillers are of the best quality and the effects are long-lasting. Our doctors will be sure to work with you to get your desired results.

The cost of lip injections is typically much lower than the cost of other rejuvenation or plastic surgery options.


Is Getting Lip Filler Painful?


Before the procedure, your doctor may use a numbing cream or local anesthetic on your lip and mouth area. Also, many lip fillers contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, so getting lip filler is not painful. There may be some pressure or pinching from the needle injector during the procedure, and you may experience some pain or tenderness immediately after the procedure. However, most patients find the procedure itself nearly painless and the recovery fairly quick and easy.

There is virtually no downtime after lip filler injection and you can resume normal activity right away. There may be some temporary soreness, redness, bruising, or swelling in the area immediately after injection, but this can easily be managed by applying ice to the lip area. Any redness or undesired swelling should subside within a day.

There are also very few side effects from lip filler injections. Your doctor may test you in advance to determine if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in lip filler.

I was very pleased with this facility. I didn’t have to wait, the nurse and doctor were quite human (vs bureaucratic), and I felt seen and listened to.

Great City Medical clinic helped me file my green card immigration medical exam form. The team is very knowledgeable and flexible. I scheduled my appointment within one week and got the report quickly. Due to some personal health issues, I had to update my report two days before the interview, and the team helped me correct the form with no extra cost within one day! I really appreciated it and highly recommended having your medical exam report done quickly and professionally with the Great City Medical team.

Aesthetically this is not the best looking clinic but the service was okay. They gave me false positive results from my pap I wanted to have a second opinion before they was going to go in and do a coloscopy. I was good that I did. I don’t know something was fishy about this place . When I had an ultrasound there were staff members basically arguing with eachother. Talking about a new MA.When I left and came back for results and they told me I had low sodium levels I was worried about that, so I drank pediasure. The only thing they told me to do was eat deli sandwiches and salted nuts. I’m always fishy about places that do abortions, its a clinic not a hospital.

Had to wait for 1/2 hour and the person at the front desk wore her mask BELOW her nose. Dr. Akselrud could not have been nicer and he was more than helpful in dealing with my medical issue. He is a good doctor.

I am fairly new here and had about 4 appointments and never had any issues. The wait sometimes can be a little long, but the staff are always nice. The doctors are kind and gentle with their procedures. The anesthesiologist was so nice and helpful and made me feel comfortable during my procedure. I travel from the Bronx and it’s worth the travel.
