COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- It’s no secret that self-made celebrities, the Kardashian family – Kim, Khloe, Kylie, Kris and now even Caitlyn – are avid users of lip filler. Their reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians helped launch their $300 million branding empire and, among many other things, made popular such aesthetic procedures as breast and buttock augmentations, Botox and their signature “plump” lips.
Dr. Michael Sullivan, one of America’s most experienced facial plastic surgeons, who has performed over 20,000 facial surgeries, has been observing a steady increase in requests for lip filler from his patients in Ohio and surrounding states over the last several years.
“It’s definitely a very popular procedure to get filler injected in your lips,” comments Dr. Sullivan. “Patients really love the results because they get an instant beauty fix – their lips are instantly more full. Older patients don’t have to worry about lipstick feathering into the creases around their mouth, and younger women get to have the fuller kind of lip that the Kardashians have made so popular with their TV show.”
Lip aficionados rejoice. This month, Allergan (the makers of Botox) announced their official release of the next generation of lip fillers, called Volbella XC, which just received FDA approval. Dr. Michael Sullivan is one of the first plastic surgeons to use Volbella as a lip filler for his patients, and he is impressed with the results. “I would be the first to tell you that when patients came to get plumper lips I would try to talk them out of it, because frankly, I wasn’t that thrilled with the results from traditional fillers and it was a painful injection. Now Volbella has changed all that. Because we do a lot of injectables at the Sullivan Centre, we were one of the first clinics in America, and in Columbus, to use Volbella. I’ve been blown away by the results. There’s virtually no discomfort, except for a small needle stick as the product is being administered. It’s actually less painful than Botox, which barely hurts at all! Also, the way that we inject at the Sullivan Centre is different from anyone else, which is what gives us a much better, natural looking result – even the Allergan rep was amazed when I showed her the results we were getting.”
Volbella XC has many advantages over other lip fillers – Allergan’s studies show that results can last up to 12 months, and the filler costs less – up to $250 less than other lip fillers.
Dr. Sullivan adds, “For people considering having lip filler, it’s essential that they get injected by someone who has an expert level of medical training and a very good aesthetic eye, otherwise you can end up with a less than desirable result – what’s commonly referred to as ‘fish lips’ – a very unnatural looking lip because they have been injected incorrectly or overfilled.”
For anyone interested in scheduling a Volbella lip consult, please call the Sullivan Centre at (614)436-8888. A lip consult takes 15 minutes, and the treatment itself only takes 5 minutes, making it the perfect lunchtime procedure, or to have done on your way home from work.
