You’ll see a difference in your lips as well as they lose their volume. If you want a plump appearance for your lips once again to give you that fuller pout, there is something you can do about it. Fat transfer lip enhancement is a minimally invasive procedure that can transform your lips whether you are fighting the aging process or simply want to enhance your lips.
What is Fat Transfer?
Fat transfer is a cosmetic procedure that is growing in popularity. It involves harvesting excess fat from your body, such as the buttocks or the abdomen. Liposuction is used for fat removal. From that point, the fat is thoroughly cleansed and then prepared for injection. The final step is to inject the fat into your lips and the area around your mouth to address any lines that you may have that alter the appearance of your lips. In the end, you’ll have fuller lips. Fat transfer is an ideal solution for fine lines and wrinkles on other parts of your face as well.
The Advantages of Fat Transfer
Fat transfer is preferable to other products that are injected because it is natural and taken from your body, reducing the risk of infection or adverse reactions after the procedure. It tends to last several years while other products are absorbed by the body between six months to a year. Fat transfer leaves the lips feeling natural and does not cause bumps to form if the procedure is done with care.
Are You a Candidate for Fat Transfer for Lip Enhancement?
If you are in good health and do not have underlying conditions that could cause a complication, fat transfer could be the answer for you. If you are prone to scarring or have severe allergic reactions, you may need to consider other alternatives. A fat transfer procedure may trigger a flare-up of cold sores if you get the painful sores often.
During the procedure, a local anesthetic will be used while fat is injected. You can expect some swelling, redness or bruising for a short period after the procedure. You will be able to notice immediate results and be able to return to your normal routine.
