Many women desire fuller, plump lips but few are born with them naturally. In addition, fuller lips help to decrease the appearance of fine lines and creases common around the lips. These days there are more options then ever when it comes to lip enhancement. From drug store lip plumping glosses to injectable treatments to implants, you need not look far to find a treatment suitable for achieving the full, luscious lips you desire.
Lip Augmentation Options
Some of the most popular options for lip augmentation include fat transfers and injectables like Juvederm. During a fat transfer lip augmentation, fat will be harvested from another area of the patient’s body. This fat will then be processed, purified and injected into the lips.
Juvederm is a dermal filler which uses a substance naturally found in our bodies called Hyaluronic Acid, to fill out wrinkles and folds, and plump up the lips. The injection takes only a few minutes to administer, but its effects will last for several months.
We offer several options for our patients to increase the size of their lips. Each lip augmentation treatment has its pros and cons. Discussing your options with your Plastic Surgeon is the best way to determine which treatment may be right for you. As with any procedure, there are some risks, which you should discuss with your Plastic Surgeon.
