Lip Augmentation Options By on September 05, 2011

When it comes to distinct faces, one of the facial features that really define a person’s looks is the lips. There’s a lot to be said about lips that are full. There’s a certain sensuality and seductiveness about full lips, especially when complementing your other features. Many patients want to achieve such an enhanced appearance, which is why they come to the practice of Little Rock plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Yee.

Lip Augmentation Options

For achieving those pouting, beautiful lips, Dr. Yee considers many different options. There are surgical methods for lip enhancement that have proven quite safe and effective. There are also non-surgical options for lip enhancement that many patients have considered and undergone. We’d like to look at both of them so you understand just how these options can enhance you’re your lip as well as your overall appearance.

Facial Implants and Lip Augmentation

When it comes to surgical methods for lip enhancement, one option is getting implants placed. Undergoing lip augmentation with facial implants means a great appearance with a surgery that has proven safe and effective for years. Facial implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate the needs of a patient. In addition to the lips, facial implants are also available for the chin and the cheekbones.

During lip implant surgery, incision will be made around the lip area. Sometimes the incisions are made to the side of the lips, but many other options for the surgical procedure are available as well. It’s through this incision that the lip implant is inserted. Generally the surgery lasts only an hour.

Cosmetic Injections and Lip Augmentation

Some patients would rather not undergo surgery. For these patients, there is a non-surgical solution for effective lip enhancement. This solution involves the use of cosmetic injections and dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable solutions that are safe and effective ways of adding volume to different parts of the face.

There are many popular dermal fillers for achieving lip augmentation. These include Restylane®, collagen, Sculptra®, and Perlane®. When these dermal fillers are used for lip enhancement, the injections will be placed into the lip area as needed. The results will last for a few months and repeat injections can be performed as needed.

Other Facial Rejuvenation Options to Consider

Many people get their lips enhanced as part of a larger facial rejuvenation treatment. This sort of makeover can have a tremendous affect on a person’s overall appearance. Some patients like to combine their lip enhancement surgery with Little Rock rhinoplasty, a facelift, or even various body contouring options. If you’re interested in such a makeover, Dr. Yee can discuss these matters with you greater detail. Whatever you’re considering, a treatment plan will be designed just for you.
