Do you have thin lips? Are you unhappy with your pout? Men and women who are interested in making their lips more noticeable with lip augmentation can ask Dr. Kenrick A. Spence and the team at Hillcrest Plastic Surgery about the benefits of procedures such as fat grafting.
How does fat grafting work?
Fat grafting has been successfully used over the years to remove unwanted fat from one area of the body and add it to another. It is commonly used in procedures such as the Brazilian butt lift, where the buttocks is made more round and full with the use of fat harvested from somewhere else on the patient’s body. Fat grafting can also be used for the lips to add volume and address otherwise thin lip appearance.
Who is a candidate for lip augmentation with fat grafting?
Most patients are viable candidates for this procedure, primarily because the fat used in the lips is derived from the patient, which means there are no allergic reactions or rejection risks. During an evaluation appointment, Dr. Kenrick A. Spence can make sure patients are proper candidates for this treatment and have realistic expectations of what can be achieved. Our doctor also makes sure that the results of this treatment look natural and is in balance and harmony with the rest of the patient’s facial features.
What other options are available?
In some situations, patients who want a more dramatic change to the lips may be suitable for lip implants, which are placed during a surgical procedure. Others may want to ask about the use of dermal fillers that can add volume directly where it is needed. These do not provide as permanent of results as fat grafting or lip implants, but can offer pleasing improvements for several months before the dermal fillers are naturally absorbed by the body. Continued injections are needed to maintain the results from lip augmentation with dermal fillers.
