Three Common Lip Augmentation Questions Answered

Lip augmentation may sound simple but it is one of the most challenging and delicate procedures. Potential patients have many questions during their personal consultations. Here are the three most common questions answered.

1. What are my options in lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation is possible through fillers, fat transfer, implants, or laser treatment.

2. Who can have lip augmentation?

Lip enhancement is appropriate for women of any age as long as they’re in excellent health. Generally, younger women seek lip augmentation to enhance their naturally thin lips, while older women consider lip enhancement treatments to restore volume in aging lips.

3. Are lip injections painful?

The lips are very sensitive, but numbing cream is applied 30 minutes before the injections to make the procedure less painful.
