Many people wish for a fuller and more sensuous lip. There are a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures that can help give you the results you desire.
One technique is known as Fat Transfer. The “fat” is taken from your abdomen or outer thigh and re-injected into your lip area. The results are very good and last from several months to over a year because the fat is gradually absorbed back into the body. You may need two or three treatments to obtain the results you desire.
The most popular technique for plumping the lip is dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. Juvederm or Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our skin, and treatments will fill out your lips. You will notice improvement in the area treated with one treatment. There may be a slight swelling that will resolve over the next day or two. The improvement you will achieve will usually last from 6 to 12 months. There will be gradual fading of the results at which point you can return for another treatment.
