You might be inspired to get a subtle enhancement to your lips, or maybe you’re looking for a fuller pout. Whether you want a dramatic change or a simple improvement, lip fillers can help you meet your goals. Lip fillers are an appealing option for many reasons. For starters, a filler can give you a plumper, more luscious pout to last for months. As they are temporary, the results can be reversed if you’re not happy with the look. Finally, there are a number of options to choose from, and a skilled professional can help you select the best one.
What are Lip Fillers?
Like other dermal fillers, lip fillers come in several categories. They range in longevity from temporary fillers, which last for a number of months, to semi-permanent fillers that can last up to two years. Some of the most popular and natural-looking fillers are those made of hyaluronic acid. Juvederm® and Restylane® are two of the most commonly used fillers derived from hyaluronic acid. They are notable for producing predictable, natural-looking results. Since they are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance produced in the human body, they’re also considered to be quite safe for cosmetic use.
How Do Fillers Help?
Fillers are designed to contour, define, and add volume to the lips. They are injected into the lip and the surrounding area to give your lips volume, structure, and shape. The advantage of using hyaluronic acid fillers is that they are soft and malleable. This lets a qualified professional have full control over the end outcome of your lip shape. After the results of a single treatment fade, additional injections may be necessary to help maintain the volume and shape of your lips.
Are There Other Lip Augmentation Options?
In addition to fillers, there are several other choices available for people who want fuller, more luscious lips. Fat grafting is an alternative to fillers we offer at The Plastic Surgery Center. Fat grafting is similar in the sense that it involves injecting a substance in your body. But in this case, the substance that’s injected into your lips is your own body fat. In this procedure, fat is harvested from a donor site – usually the buttocks or thighs – and injected into your lips.
With their ease of application, versatility, and ability to give you instant results, lip fillers are one of the most popular options for people looking for fuller, thicker, more luscious lips.
