What Are My Options for Lip Augmentation in Washington, DC?
Surgical Placement of Tissue/ Implant
These procedures are not done that often because of the ease of performing fat injection and the short recovery period of other injectable fillers. You can use part of your own skin and shape it using multiple small incisions placed in the lips. Synthetic materials such as AlloDerm® have also been used for this purpose. Synthetic implants can be used, but they may not give as natural a feel to the lips.
Surgical removal of the tissue from upper and/or lower lips can be performed to give a smaller appearance to large lips. An incision is made inside the mouth in the lips, and enough tissue is removed to create a more balanced look. The incisions are then closed using absorbable sutures.
Fat injection is used to plump the lips and the furrows on either side of the upper lip. Fat injections will usually last up to 6 months. Additional injections may allow you to achieve a result that lasts for several years. The fat is removed from one area of the body such as the buttocks and then used for the lip injection.
This procedure involves injecting the lip with a “filler,” either Restylane®, Juvederm®, Perlane®, or less commonly, Radiesse®. Most of these materials consist of a stabilized hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already present in your body. All of these fillers are eventually absorbed by the body; therefore, the procedure has to be repeated at least every six to nine months. These can also be used on the corners of the mouth.
