Whether you’re smiling or pouting, nothing says young like full and rounded lips. Because the lips flatten and thin as we age, resulting in a more frown-like appearance, some people’s lips aren’t what they’d like them to be. Others find that their top and bottom lips are uneven. Lip augmentation plumps the lips for a fuller, rounder and more balanced appearance.
Patients are able to select among a variety of safe and effective techniques that suit their lifestyles and aesthetic goals. Dr. Villano and his team will be able to advise you on the most appropriate technique relative to your needs.
Lip Augmentation Methods
- Restylane or Juvederm injections are non-permanent, non-surgical lip augmentation methods that generally last four and up to twelve months.
- The fat injection method is a semi-permanent, non-surgical method that uses fat harvested from the patient’s body.
- The dermal fat graft method is a semi-permanent surgical lip augmentation method that uses fat attached to deep layers of skin, which is harvested from the patient’s body.
- The V-Y lip advancement method is a permanent surgical lip augmentation method. As the incision heals, the lips expand to create fullness.
