If you have thin or uneven lips, you may have considered your options when it comes to obtaining a more plentiful pout. At the Skin and Beauty Center of California, we see many patients who are uneasy about having implants placed for fear of an unnatural appearance. Our team can talk to you about your choices so you have a better understanding as to how to achieve the look you desire.
What is lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation is the act of contouring the lips to create symmetry or add volume.
Does lip augmentation require implant surgery?
No, lip augmentation does not require implant surgery. There are a number of ways to achieve fuller lips without implants, including dermal fillers and fat grafting.
What is the difference between dermal fillers and fat grafting?
Dermal fillers are injected into the lips to add volume, while fat grafting involves taking fat from another area of the body and injecting it into the lips.
Which is better, dermal fillers or fat grafting?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The best way to determine which method is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our team at the Skin and Beauty Center. We can educate you on the pros and cons of each option and help you make a choice that meets your expectations, budget, and desires.
Are cosmetic injectables safe to use for lip augmentation?
Yes, cosmetic injectables are safe to use for lip augmentation when administered by a trained professional. The injectables available at the Skin and Beauty Center, such as dermal fillers, are all approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Fat injections and grafting, when performed by an experienced clinician, are also safe and have no risk of allergic reaction as the fat is harvested from the patient receiving the injections.
