Perfect your pout with Restylane Silk filler for lips in Fort Lee, NJ

You won’t pout over the appearance of your lips after treatment at Edmund Kwan, M.D.’s New Jersey office. Skillfully administered by Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan, and his professional team, Restylane for lips in Fort Lee, NJ creates the pucker you’ve always wanted or restores the pout you used to have. Restylane Silk isn’t “just” a volumizer; this product from the popular Restylane family of dermal fillers is proven to successfully soften lines around the mouth and to define the shape of the lips.

Since Restylane Silk is an advanced product made up of small and smooth hyaluronic acid (HA) particles, you don’t look like “you’ve had work done.” You get an improved appearance that’s all you – no duck lips! Small, smooth particles also contribute to lips that feel soft and natural to the touch. In fact, the makers of Restylane, Galderma Laboratories, report that 98 percent of subjects in a clinical study saw visible improvement in lip fullness after just 14 days post-injection. Lips remained visibly improved for most of those subjects – 77 percent of them – 6 months after treatment.

Love your lips

We know that pictures speak volumes. On this website, you’ll see many photos of satisfied patients. Feel free to ask Dr. Kwan for additional pictures (and bring photos of celebrities or other looks you covet to your complimentary consultation). Many of the “before” and “after” photos on this website feature common cosmetic concerns; for instance, many patients reach out to Dr. Kwan and his experienced team to correct sunken or hollow areas, loose and saggy skin, and wrinkles and folds.

It’s estimated that the dermis or lower layer of the skin loses at least 20 percent (and up to 80 percent!) of its thickness as part of the natural aging process. Such dermal thinning is attributed to your body producing less collagen and elastin fibers over time. Unprotected sun exposure and other environmental and lifestyle factors, such as smoking, speed up the breakdown of these proteins and result in prematurely lax, shallow, and aged-looking areas. Your lips are not immune to this process. You may have noticed your pucker looks smaller and less defined than it used to, due to the degradation of those structural components of tissue. UV from tanning beds or the sun’s rays and the use of tobacco products accelerate age-related changes, including decreased lip volume.

Dehydration is also to blame for a deflated pout. Hyaluronic acid is associated with moist, luminous skin. As you get older, your body produces less of this water-loving molecule. Dry and inflexible skin can worsen the appearance of wrinkles. Creases such as those caused by pursing the lips to smoke can further detract from the appearance of your lips. The repeated action of puffing on a cigarette gives rise to horizontal lines under the upper and lower lips. Edmund Kwan, M.D. can do what Mother Nature can’t — replenish your body’s supply of hyaluronic acid to give you back your full, luscious lips or defy genetics by creating the lip size and shape that’s always eluded you.

Lip boosting, beautifying Restylane Silk

Beautiful woman with nice lips

Restylane Silk and its sister products are all formulated with HA. This substance lubricates your joints, acts as a shock absorber in the eye, and transports vital nutrients to the eyeball; however, about half of your body’s HA is found in the skin’s epidermis and underlying dermis. HA combined with water has a gel-like quality,. These gel products are known as dermal fillers. When injected into the skin, HA-based fillers like Restylane bring water to the skin’s surface and inflate supportive facial structures and tissues. Since HA is present in your body naturally, concerns associated with foreign substances such as rejection or toxicity are avoided. The risks of side effects are also minimized, due to your treatment being performed safely and skillfully by medical professionals in a medical setting. Restylane Silk is applied precisely to specific points via an ultra-thin needle.

It’s good to know that:

  • Injections are well-tolerated by most patients. We’ll discuss how to make treatment even more comfortable before your first session.
  • Side effects are limited to the injection sites, and usually include temporary swelling and bruising.
  • Love instant gratification? Then you’ll love Restylane Silk!
  • Expect to keep those beautiful results for up to six months.
  • Sustain results with maintenance sessions.
  • Treatment can be completed over lunch, with no downtime.

You don’t have to introduce a foreign implant to delicate lips or undergo more invasive procedures to get the pucker you’ve always wanted. Call 201 947 3636 to schedule your appointment at Edmund Kwan, M.D.’s Fort Lee, NJ office.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews Mascha N
    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
