How is Lip Enhancement Performed?

Lip Fillers

Hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Juvéderm Ultra, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Kysse provide smooth, natural looking lip augmentation, increasing lip volume without overfilling. Fillers allow for customization and also add moisture to achieve a more attractive appearance and feel. Treatment involves a series of injections with a small, fine needle or cannula. You will need to keep pressure off of your lips for 24 hours after your session. The longevity of results will be determined by the specific filler that is used.

Fat Transfer

Instead of using dermal fillers to enhance lip appearance,  many patients prefer to use their own fat for the most natural, long lasting results and to avoid a potential reaction to injected product. Fat transfer also offers patients the added benefit of contouring and slimming the donor regions. The fat is usually taken from the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks with liposuction and is then purified and placed into a syringe to be injected. When used for lip augmentation, the results of fat injections are very soft and natural looking lips. Outcomes also last longer than they do with dermal fillers because the fat is made up of living cells that are incorporated into the surrounding tissues.

Does lip filler eventually dissolve?

What should I do before my lip augmentation?

Does lip filler eventually dissolve?

Hyaluronic acid based fillers are expected to dissolve, and you will most likely need maintenance treatments to keep your fuller lips. Fat transfer lip augmentation is more long-lasting with results maintained for years, although in some cases additional fat injections may provide additional lip enhancement.

What should I do before my lip augmentation?

To reduce bruising and bleeding, it’s best that you avoid blood thinners for about two weeks before your treatment. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, St. John’s wort, alcohol, and more.
