The effects of aging can be especially harsh on the lips. Over time, the lips can lose their luscious volume, and surrounding lines and wrinkles can form around the mouth. For many patients, the desired Cupid’s Bow of the upper lip also diminishes as the lips lose their defined borders and contour. If you have lips that are flat or turning downward due to age, consider a natural and highly sustainable lip enhancement treatment using fat grafting at Hillcrest Plastic Surgery.
Fat grafting for the lips is often a win-win solution for patients, as it involves taking unwanted fat from other areas of the body (abdomen, hips or thighs) and carefully transferring it to the lips to add desired fullness and sensuality. Dr. Spence is an elite facial plastic surgeon in Orlando who has helped countless patients regain the lips of their youth using fat grafting.
Fat Grafting for Fuller Lips
If you want the most natural and long-lasting lip filler in cosmetic surgery, fat grafting is the answer. Not only does Dr. Spence use your own fatty tissues to restore volume to the lips, but this method offers more sustainable results than synthetic fillers. Many patients retain their natural lip fullness after fat grafting for several years.
During your fat grafting procedure at Hillcrest Plastic Surgery, Dr. Spence will use liposuction to harvest extra fat from your stomach, thighs or hips. These fatty deposits undergo a special purification process before they are injected into the lips. Dr. Spence understands the precision and artistry that it takes to accurately perform lip fat grafting and produce the most natural results. Patients can not only regain ideal lip volume, but they can benefit from soft lips that feel natural too.
Dermal fat grafting is an excellent choice for adding fullness to aging lips, and it is also effective for recreating a defined and natural lip border. This natural lip filler treatment is an outpatient procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia in most cases. Since a patient’s own fat deposits are used, the body readily accepts it and risks are very minimal. Depending on the severity of your concerns, multiple fat grafting sessions may be needed to achieve your goals.
