Lip Augmentation Options

Lip AugmentationFull, well defined lips are considered a sign of youthfulness and beauty. Enhancing the lips is a great way to instantly make a person’s face appear more balanced and attractive.  Lip augmentation is a popular procedure that adds volume and fullness to the lips. As we age, the volume we once had can depreciate and leave us with thinner, sometimes wrinkled lips. Using a variety of techniques and materials, there are several options to help you achieve a beautiful, sexy pout. For achieving those pouting, beautiful lips, Dr. Allison at Gainesville considers many different options. There are both surgical and non-surgical methods for lip enhancement that have proven quite safe and effective.

Fillers

Fillers are an excellent and non-permanent way of increasing lip volume. Because Dr. Allison is diligent with placement, the results from fillers can have the most natural looking results. Human-based collagen, bovine-based collagen or hyaluronic acid-based fillers can be injected into your lips to restore volume. These fillers last for about 6 months and you will see results almost immediately. Typically, these injections won’t feel any different than natural lips.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is a great option for increasing volume in your lips by transferring fat from one part of your body to your lips. Since the fat is your own tissue there is little to no risk of infection or extrusion. As with most fat grafting procedures, the end results can vary over time. As your body settles, only a percentage of the transferred fat will survive which is something to keep in mind because that means over time the results can vary. It is also good to consider that any weight fluctuation can have an effect on the end result.

Implants

Lip implants provide permanent lip augmentation with more refined results. The surgery is pretty simple and can take about an hour to complete. Surgically, implants are placed in the top or bottom lip to add volume and create your desired look.
