When you look in the mirror and you identify aspects of your face that you like and you don’t like, what do you think when you look at your lips? There are some people who are genetically blessed with plump lips. Unfortunately, the majority of people are not happy with the way their lips look. If you are unhappy with the way that your lips look, you don’t just have to take what nature has given you. You have options. One of these options is lip augmentation.
If you are considering lip augmentation, it’s likely that you have some questions and some concerns. It’s good to take the time to address these concerns. The more you know about the procedure before you start, the happier you will be with the end results.
The basic question that people have about lip augmentation is what it is exactly. Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to change the size and the shape of your lips. It is designed to enhance your lips by making them look fuller.
You have options when it comes to lip augmentation. You can use dermal fillers or fat transfer, or you can have your lips augmented surgically with implants. Surgical implants are permanent. Lip augmentation injections are temporary, especially when dermal fillers are used.
If dermal fillers are used, the fillers are skillfully injected by our qualified medical professional. Most of these fillers use hyaluronic acid. The results produced by these fillers are not permanent. Most of them will need to be retouched multiple times per year. However, this depends on the situation.
One of the nice things about using a filler is that you are able to decide whether or not you like your lips augmented without having the permanence that comes from surgical implants. Another nice thing about fillers is the lack of downtime involved. Patients can resume most of their normal activities immediately following the treatment session.
