Lip Augmentation Without Surgery

Oct 20, 2007
Whether you're smiling or pouting, nothing says young and sensual like full, rounded lips. However, many women either find their lips flatten and thin with age or are not as round and plump as theyd like. The flat, thin appearance of the lips is sometimes mistaken as frowning. Other women find their top and bottom lips are uneven. Lip augmentation plumps lips for a fuller, rounder or more balanced appearance.

Patients are able to select among a variety of safe and effective techniques that suit their lifestyles and aesthetic goals. All of these procedures (except Collagen) are performed using local anesthesia.

Restylane or Juvederm injections are a non-permanent, non-surgical lip augmentation method that generally lasts for three to five months and do not require any down time.

Juvederm is the newest most advanced form of hyaluronic acid dermal filler on the market today. It is a highly cross - linked formula (accomplished through advanced scientific methods) that is a smooth, consistently flowing gel. All other dermal fillers are granular. It is the most versatile formula available that creates a more natural look and feel naturally!

Restylane is safe, effective, FDA approved and when used in conjunction with Botox (as needed) creates longevity in results for both products. It is an injectable dermal filler of granular consistency which is safe and effective to smooth out folds and wrinkles in the face. It is a simple lunchtime procedure which offers immediate results. It is non-animal based so no pre-testing is required and it is a proven form of hyaluronic acid the same as our body produces. Restylane is available in one injectable strength (formula).

Fat injections are a semi-permanent, non-surgical lip augmentation method that uses fat harvested from the patient's body. Although the body typically absorbs some of the injected fat, results are generally permanent. Because the material is taken from the patient's body, there is no risk of allergic reaction.

Dermal fat grafts are a semi-permanent surgical lip augmentation method that uses fat attached to deep layers of skin which are harvested from the patient's body. This material is less likely to be absorbed by the body than plain fat injections. Because the material is taken from the patient's body, there is also no risk of allergic reaction.

AlloDerm is a semi-permanent surgical lip augmentation method that uses fatty tissue obtained from tissue banks therefore eliminating the need for incisions elsewhere on the body. Because the tissue is from human donors, there is a minimal risk of allergic reaction or absorption by the body.

V-Y lip advancement is a permanent surgical lip augmentation method. A small V-shaped incisions in the lip inside of the mouth. The incision is sutured in a small Y-shape. As the incision heals the lips expands creating fullness.
