What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a procedure used to create fuller-looking lips. During augmentation, your lips are injected with collagen or fat from another part of your body. Collagen and liquid fat are then absorbed. Follow-up treatments may be required to maintain results.
In most cases, a patient’s fat or a natural or synthetic material is implanted or injected into your lips. A single injection typically produces the desired look. This result may be temporary and can depend on the material that is used. You may need extra periodic injections in the future. A key factor to success is the proper placement of injected material.
Often a natural sheet of collagen from donated skin is added through small incisions located inside the corners of the mouth. Once the implant is inserted, it gradually becomes mixed with your natural tissue.
In many cases, some synthetic implant choices include SoftForm and Gore-Tex.
Other options are:
Laser lip rejuvenation is another patient option. This procedure tightens elastic tissue and collagen underneath the lips.
Temporary procedures, such as fat injection or collagen injection, may appeal to you if you want to see how you look with fuller lips without the change in your appearance being permanent.
