Lips Augmentation Surgery: All You Need to Know

Lip augmentation surgery

Full lips are associated with a more beautiful and youthful appearance in today’s society. Lip plastic surgery is one such cosmetic procedure that can boost lip volume, enhance lip shape, and smooth vertical lip lines. After undergoing cosmetic surgery for lips, most of the patients happily return home feeling more confident with their new looks. Though men also undergo lip reshaping surgeries, it is most popular in middle-aged women. In this blog, we have discussed various lip-enhancing procedures and their benefits.


What are some Lip augmentation procedures?




Dermal Filler Lip Injections

Dermal filler lip injections are filled with hyaluronic acid, a naturally present substance in the body, and can help increase the volume of your lips. The popular hyaluronic acid fillers are Restylane, Voluma, and Juvederm products. The effect of dermal fillers is temporary, and they last around six to twelve months.

Fat grafting

Fat grafting is an autologous lip augmentation in which fat is harvested from the abdominal region via liposuction. After that, it is purified and then injected into the lips. It does not require any incision on the lips. Its results are permanent and look beautiful as well as very natural. 




Major types of lip surgery include:

Lip Implants 

Lip implants are made from soft silicone rubber or biodegradable substance and are planted through small incisions hidden in the corners of the mouth. It is a safe procedure that produces beautiful results when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon. Their effect lasts many years with minimal maintenance. 

Vermilion advancement

It is a technique that involves creating a more defined lip border. In this process, a strip of skin is removed just above the upper lip, then pulling the pink part (vermilion) of the skin to increase the area of the lips.
