Best Lip Augmentation Treatment Options

Posted on Friday, November 17th, 2017 by Douglas M. Stevens, MD

Lip augmentation procedures can provide fuller and shapelier lips that look natural and healthy. Most patients interested in lip augmentation want slightly more volume or shape in certain areas without an excessive lip volume. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic surgery now make it easier to achieve this highly desired look with minimal recovery, particularly by using dermal fillers.

Dr. Douglas Stevens, a facial plastic surgeon in Fort Myers, handles many questions about lip augmentation at his cosmetic surgery office. In this post, he discusses the best treatment options for lip augmentation.

Fat Transfers for Fuller Lips

Fat transfers involve removing a small amount of fat from your body and injecting it into your lips. This method is less popular than it used to be because of the development of modern dermal fillers that offer several benefits over fat transfers.

The results of a fat transfer are not as predictable as using a dermal filler, and a large portion of the fat cells can end up being absorbed. For these reasons, dermal fillers are typically used for lip augmentation whenever possible.

Lip Fillers Offer Lasting Results

Juvederm and other lip fillers are the preferred solutions for many patients who want to get fuller lips. A skilled cosmetic surgeon can use one of these lip augmentation options to achieve precise results that typically last around a year.

Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm don’t cause allergic reactions in most people because they are made of substances similar to those found in your body. They are safe and can be controlled to give your lips just the right amount of volume. These fillers can also be used for facial volumization if you have lost some of the fullness in your cheeks.

Lip augmentation using a dermal filler is a fast and effective procedure that usually doesn’t require any downtime. You may experience mild swelling or bruising, which should subside within a few days.
