Lip augmentation via injectable fillers is a popular cosmetic enhancement to reverse the effects of aging on thinning lips. The treatment restores definition and contour, and upper and lower lips may be treated separately or together.
To create fuller, more defined lips, physicians may use synthetic material or tissue from the mouth or other areas of the body. Hyaluranic acid dermal fillers (such as Juvederm®) and fat are the most widely used substances.
Like most injectables, dermal fillers are slowly absorbed by the body over a period of months. To maintain optimum results, treatment can be repeated periodically.
If you are considering lip augmentation, talk with an expert to find out the risks and limitations of each available product, along with the details of the procedure.
