Lip Augmentation To Volumize Lips

Lip Augmentation

Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation can achieve fuller, plumper lips using a variety of lip enhancement techniques. Many patients experience a gradual loss of fullness around the lips due to aging, genetics, sun exposure, or other environmental factors. As collagen production slows, the lips can lose definition and begin to thin out. Lip augmentation aims to volumize your lips using either dermal fillers or natural fat transfer techniques. Dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid can enhance lip shape to achieve smooth, symmetrical results, while fat grafting uses your body’s own fat cells to plump the lips for realistic definition. Your plastic surgeon can customize your lip enhancement procedure to best fit your procedure goals, achieving results that complement your individual facial profile.

Your Lip Augmentation Procedure

Depending on the type of lip enhancement procedure being performed, your lip augmentation treatment may be completed in-office, at an outpatient surgical facility, or at a local hospital. When using dermal fillers to enhance the lips, a lip filler is carefully injected into the upper and lower lips to provide immediate volume. Fat transfer for the lips requires excess fat cells to be collected from a donor location via liposuction (usually your midsection or buttocks). Once these fat cells are extracted, they are inserted into the lips to add natural-looking volume.

Lip augmentation can be combined with additional facial surgery procedures, including blepharoplasty, facelift surgery, rhinoplasty, and chin augmentation, as well as non-surgical facial rejuvenation using dermal fillers.

What To Expect After Undergoing Your Lip Augmentation Procedure

Your lip augmentation recovery will depend on the type of lip enhancement procedure performed. Patients opting for dermal fillers to plump the lips experience no healing time and can resume daily activities right away, while those undergoing lip fat grafting can expect slight bruising and swelling around the donor location and treatment site. Fat transfer patients require approximately 1-2 weeks of lip enhancement recovery. Your lip augmentation surgeon can explain detailed guidelines and timetables during your consultation.

Lip enhancement can replenish youthful-looking lip volume and enhance existing lip contours for a plumper appearance. Patients can begin to see results from lip fillers or lip fat transfer immediately following lip treatment.
