Although non-surgical procedures offer excellent temporary solutions to cosmetic enhancements, they do not provide permanent results. With technological advances in Lip Augmentation Surgery, we are able to deliver more precise results, faster recovery options and safer surgery to our patients. Surgery is not just for the aging face, but also for those that desire to change what mother nature failed to give us: fuller lips (as well as smoother complexions, higher cheekbones and sculpted faces.)
Permanent lip augmentation results in beautifully sculpted and lifted lips with materials that resist absorption into the body, unlike temporary injectables. This procedure is generally performed under local anesthetic, and in some cases, light sedation.
The gold standard Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement is achieved with the use of temporary injectable fillers once based on bovine (cow) derived collagen. Now, we have fillers created from non-animal, biocompatible (causes no harm to the body) as well as biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body) substances. They include: hyaluronic acid, hydroxyapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.
Fat Grafting is also known as free fat transfer, autologous fat transfer, liposculpture, volume restoration, micro-lipoinjection and fat injections.
Fat Grafting is an outpatient procedure, which involves harvesting your own fat from one part of the body (generally the abdomen and hips) and, re-implanting the fat via syringe to the lips. Local Anesthesia or light General Anesthesia is often used during the procedure, which lasts approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Recovery time immediately following the procedure is 1 or 2 hours.
