Lip Augmentation (Restylane/Juvederm/Soft tissue grafting)
Rediscover more youthful lips or create the fuller lips you've always wanted.
Things to know about Lip Augmentation:
Many patients desire fuller lips. The placement of skin fillers such as Restalyne or Juvederm can be done in an office-based setting and takes only about 15 minutes to complete. Importantly Dr. Lamperti will personally perform your filler injection. Subtle and precise placement of filler can create fuller, well balanced lips.
Another alternative is the placement of your own tissue fat that is gently removed from another part of you body (such as from an old scar or behind the ear). This can be down in our in-office procedure room or in the operating room. The results of soft tissue lip augmentation are longer lasting than filler injection, however there are some limits as to the precision of the augmentation (compared with filler injection). Unfortunately, fat grafting does not work well in the lip due to the mobility of the area.
Another method of achieving permanent enhancement of the lips is by having Lip Lift surgery. Read more about the types of lip lift surgery here.
