People who are dissatisfied with the look of their lips may benefit from a lip augmentation procedure. Lip augmentation is achieved through injecting a dermal filler into the lips. A lip augmentation procedure can add volume and suppleness to the lips in order to enhance a patient’s overall appearance.
Ideal candidates for lip augmentation procedures are those patients who are in good psychological and physical health with realistic expectations about the outcome. Those who may benefit the most include individuals with naturally thin lips or premature signs of aging. Smokers may also benefit from a lip enhancement procedure since smoking causes fine lines and puckering around the lips.
Surgical Lip Augmentation
Surgical lip enhancement is a minimally invasive surgical procedure done in the office under local anesthesia. The results are permanent and create natural fuller lips.
Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are perhaps the most popular type of lip enhancement treatment available. Dermal filler injections offer patients a relatively safe and convenient way to achieve fuller lips with semi-permanent results.
