What is Lip Augmentation?

If you want to achieve fuller and more luscious lips, a lip augmentation procedure may be exactly what you need. Whether you were blessed with full lips in your youth but age has left them thinner, have naturally thin lips, or have uneven lips, a lip augmentation is a great way of evening them out.

There are two types of lip augmentation Michigan, namely temporary and permanent. A temporary lip augmentation is one where fillers are used to make your lips fuller for that youthful and pouty look that you are seeking. The only problem with this technique is that you have to return for a fill up every three to six months, as lip fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm will wear off with time.  The advantage is that you can decide, each time, if you would like to go small or larger compared to your last treatment.

Permanent lip augmentation has two options, namely fat transfer or AlloDerm. Fat transfer involves removal of unwanted fat through liposuction, after which the fat is processed and then injected into the lips in the same manner that Restylane or Juvederm is injected.  Even though this technique is not as permanent as AlloDerm, fat transfer to the lips can be done as an add-on at the same time as the liposuction procedure. About 80 to 90 percent of the fat that is transferred to the lips will remain over time, meaning that there will be just a 10 to 20 percent loss of fat from the original injection.
