What Is Lip Augmentation?
Some people have thin lips due to genetics or age. This can cause many to feel selfconscious about their appearance. Fortunately, there is lip augmentation available. Lip
augmentation is a procedure that helps increase the size and fullness of the lips. There are two ways that the lips can be augmented. One of the ways that the lips can be augmented is by using a soft tissue filler, such as Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm. All of those fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a compound that is naturally present in the body. The lips can also be augmented by using a micro fat grafting, which is also known as a fat transfer to the lips.
What Are Some Of The Advantages Of Using Soft Tissue Fillers?
One of the advantages that comes along with using soft tissue fillers for lip augmentation
is that the procedure can be completed within a short period of time. The procedure is
also minimally invasive and requires little to no down time. Furthermore, the results will be
noticed immediately after the surgery has been completed.
What Are Some Of The Advantages Of Using Micro Fat Grafting?
Fat is natural, so patients will not have to worry about transmission of disease or injection.
Fat can be taken from just about anywhere on the body. There are two steps involved in
micro fat grafting, harvesting and grafting. The good news is that both of these procedures
require that the doctor make an incision that is less than one millimeter. Once the incisions
heal, they will barely be noticeable.
How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost?
The cost of lip augmentation can vary. You should contact the Zieg Plastic Surgery Center
