How Can I Go About Getting A Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation can be achieved both through surgical (lip implant) and non-surgical (dermal fillers) cosmetic procedures. If you are not ready to commit to a permanent effect, lip injections with minimally invasive dermal fillers can provide semi-permanent results.
Dermal filler can be injected into the lips to increase fullness, smooth lines and wrinkles, and correct any drooping of the corners of the mouth. Lip injections are safe, quick, and require no downtime. Many individuals receive lip fillers during their lunch hour and can immediately return to work after their procedure.
What Sort Of Fillers Are Used?
Various dermal fillers can be used in a lip augmentation. These hyaluronic acid fillers include JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Belotero®. Another option is through fat transfer using your own harvested fat from another area of your body. You must be aware that the result of lip enhancement done with fillers is temporary, and results will typically last from 6 to 9 months. You can maintain a full-lipped look through periodic “touch up” treatments.
What About More Permanent Solutions?
Permanent lip implants are made of a soft, solid silicone elastomer using an injection molding process to attain a very natural appearance. The surface is smooth and non-porous, and cannot rupture or deflate over time. Lip implants are available in a variety of sizes to achieve the precise results you are hoping to get. These implants are patented, FDA-approved, and have undergone extensive clinical testing to ensure its safety and efficacy.
This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia. And, although permanent, the implant may be easily removed or switched out for another size. Normal activity may be resumed the day after the procedure.
