Your lips can lose their definition and volume due to several factors, such as aging. There are several cosmetic surgery and non-surgical aesthetic treatment options to correct thinning lips and enhance their overall appearance. Plastic and reconstructive surgeons can discuss all the available options with you during the initial consultation.
It is best to evaluate the pros and cons of different lip augmentation treatments with your surgeon during the initial consultation before making a final decision. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides lip augmentation enhancement treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Lip Implants Plastic Surgery
This particular option should be considered only when you are looking for permanent or long-term results. There are various high quality synthetic lip implants that are used by surgeons. You can discuss all available options with your cosmetic surgeon and choose one that best serves your purpose.
Small incisions are made at the corners in discreet locations to carve out a narrow tunnel. This is where the implants get placed. The plastic surgeon shall thread the lip implant and trim it precisely to the length you desire before closing the incisions.
Lip Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Lip enhancement with fat transfer helps in achieving fuller lips. The procedure involves inserting surplus body tissue to increase the lip volume. The results are more natural looking and can be achieved in a minimally invasive way. By using your own body fat, you can reduce the risk of allergic rejection or reaction. This procedure is usually carried out under local anesthesia.
Dermal Filler Lip Enhancement
Hyaluronic acid based dermal filler injectables, such as Juvederm and Restylane help in giving lips a shapelier and fuller appearance. They are recommended for people that want full lips without getting a plastic surgery.
Dermal fillers are FDA approved and can provide the lip symmetry and balance you desire. Injectables can help by adding more definition to the lips for restoring their youthful appearance. The injections contain smooth and consistent gels that provide real-looking results.
Laser Technique Lip Enhancement
This technique involves the delivery of precise laser energy pulses into the lip mucosa. Heat will help in formation of new collagen by making its way to the underlying tissues creating fuller lips. The shape of natural lips shall remain intact, but you will attain fuller and plumper looking lips.
Patients may require multiple laser therapies for achieving the desired augmentation. You may also need routine maintenance procedures to ensure the fullness and shape of the lips is retained. It is recommended to get maintenance treatment every six months.
Should You Get Lip Augmentation?
It is important that you be a non-smoker in good health before undergoing lip augmentation. Ideal candidates should not have:

- Blood clotting problems
You should let the plastic surgeon know about any cold sore or oral herpes you may have had in the past. The same holds true if you are allergic to lidocaine.
