There is nothing like a luscious set of lips. You can’t help but admire any woman who can put on a pretty pout. You want to pucker up like the best of them, but your lips leave something to be desired. They are much too thin for your liking. Worse yet, they are getting thinner as you get older. You’re not alone. Many women lose facial volume as they age. Collagen production drops, making the skin less elastic. Fat tends to fade away from the facial area. Cheekbones become more prominent, wrinkles appear above the mouth, and the lips look like they are about to disappear. The top lip can be affected the most. Even if your lips aren’t really thin, you may still want more than you have. Lip augmentation can give you what you want.
What are Your Options for Lip Augmentation?
Dermal fillers are the top choice for men and women alike. It’s a simple way to add fullness to your lips. Our surgeon will make injections in carefully selected points that will give you fullness where you want it the most. This type of augmentation is temporary. It’s a great way to start if you’re not sure about how you will feel about plumper lips. If you’re really happy, you can go back for more treatments or choose a permanent option.
A fat transfer offers you a permanent solution that takes fat from your own body in order to make your lips fuller. Our surgeon will begin by removing excess fat from your body. After the fat has been cleansed of impurities, it will be injected into your lips. If you don’t have fat to spare or would prefer to go another route for plumper lips, you can always choose to have lip implants. Small silicone implants will be inserted into your lips to give you lasting results.
Before you actually go through lip augmentation, think about what you want out of your procedure. Remember that less is often the best place to start. If you choose to give your lips too much volume, you may be unhappy with your results. When you opt for a modest change, you are more likely to be satisfied. You can always ask for more.
