Lip augmentation restores lip volume that is lost with aging or fills lips that are naturally thin.
When is lip augmentation beneficial?
For individuals looking to achieve fuller lips or remove fine lines and wrinkles, lip augmentation is an effective procedure that uses filler injection or fat grafting.
How is lip augmentation performed?
Fillers or the patient’s fat transferred from another location are commonly injected into the skin with a very fine needle for wrinkle correction, lip enhancement, and volume augmentation of the lips.
What results can I expect?
The results from lip injections or lip fillers can last from three months to two years, and fat transfers are more permanent.
