A lot of people want to have fuller and plumper lips just like Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie. Here at K Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kayastha performs lip augmentation in Albany to give patients the lips they have always wanted. There are surgical and non-surgical ways to augment the lips and we have outlined your options to give you a better idea of how you can have fuller lips.
Use of Injectable Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to improve the shape, structure, and volume of the lips. Restylane and Perlane are examples of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that can be used to plump the lips. The results last for about six months. Follow-up injections are needed to maintain results.
With injectable fillers the amount injected is controllable, giving the doctor better control when it comes to creating the patient’s desired lip volume. Treatments can also be gradual until results are achieved. Furthermore, lumps and bumps easily dissolve.
Fuller lips can also be achieved by using lip implants. Implants are more invasive than injectable fillers. Then again, they also offer long-lasting results.
Your own fat can be used to add fullness to the lips. Fat is extracted from spots where excess fat is found like your abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. The extracted fat is re-injected into a different area that needs filling. The procedure also offers long-lasting results.
Keep in mind that these three methods of lip augmentation come with risks.
