Lip Enhancement Options

Lip Enhancement 

Several factors, including aging, can cause your lips to lose their volume and become thin. There are several cosmetic surgery techniques and non-surgical aesthetic treatments that can be used for enhancing the overall appearance of your lips. This includes attaining a defined lip pout.

Your facial surgeon will discuss all available options with you during the initial consultation. This will help you take the right decision. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides lip enhancement procedures to patients in Houston, Texas and surrounding locations.

Lip Implants Plastic Surgery

You should think about lip augmentation with the help of implants if you want long term results. There are various high quality synthetic lip implants that are available in the market these days. Your plastic surgeon will recommend the best implants based on your needs. It doesn’t matter whether you want to make your lips fuller or shapelier, lip implants can help.

The cosmetic surgeon will make tiny incisions at the corner of your mouth in discreet locations. They will carve out a small tunnel like pocket and insert the implant in that cavity. The surgeon will then thread the implant and trim it precisely as per the desired volume and shape.

Using Fat Transfer to Enhance Lips

Fat transfer plastic surgery for lip augmentation is another option for attaining fuller lips. The procedure makes use of your body’s own tissue to increase volume in the lips. The end result is something more natural looking, which is achieved in a way that is far less invasive.

There are a lot of benefits of making use of fat tissue from your own body. For starters, there is a reduced risk of allergic rejection and reaction. Generally, local anesthesia is used for performing the cosmetic surgery procedure. You can attain more natural looking results in a subtle way with fat transfer surgery.

Dermal Filler Lip Enhancement

Juvederm, Restylane, and other hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal injectable can help give your lips a shapelier and fuller appearance. However, dermal fillers are only recommended for people that want fuller looking lips without undergoing any type of invasive facial surgery. Most dermal fillers are FDA approved to be use din the lips for attaining more balance and symmetry.

Dermal filler injectables go a long way in helping people add more definition to their lips. They also help in restoring a youthful lip appearance.

Lip Enhancement Using Laser Technique

Lip enhancement using laser involves delivering laser energy pulses precisely. Series of laser energy pulses will be delivered within the lip mucosa that helps in forming new collagen. This helps in creating shapelier and fuller lips.

The shape of the natural lips remains intact with laser lip enhancement. You can attain puffier and plumper looking lips by this treatment. However, you may need to undergo multiple laser sessions to achieve the desired enhancement.

At your pre-op consultation, you should discuss with your surgeon the pros and cons of surgical as well as non-surgical lip augmentation options. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas and nearby areas for lip enhancement treatments.
