Lip augmentation uses filler or surgical implants to alter the underlying structure of your face and provide a better balance to the facial features. This procedure is an option for anyone who feels their lips are not proportioned to their face.
In order to determine which method is best for you, a comprehensive consultation with your surgeon is needed.
Hyaluronic fillers have more benefits than other fillers. They give your doctor better control of lip volume, involve gradual injections, lumps and bumps dissolve easily, there is less bruising and reasonably long-lasting results. An allergic reaction from hyaluronic fillers is unlikely because these fillers are made from a substance that is found in the body.
The most common lip augmentation is the injection of a dermal filler into the lips or in the area around the mouth. An alternative is to use implants, which is a more permanent procedure. Your doctor will work with you to determine what size implant would best suit your needs. The procedure typically takes about thirty minutes and will give you the appearance of full, plump lips.
