Many claim that the eyes are at the center of your face, but some could contest that their lips are the most prominent features. Whatever your opinion is, you know that your lips get at least some attention. You spend time making sure they look smooth, and you always have on the perfect lip gloss. However, you are tired of your pucker looking sub-par.
Filling in the Lines
You may feel as though your lips are not at all defined, and filling in the lines with fat injections can help with that. Instead of having a thinly defined area where your lips begin, these injections can help to make the shape of your pout clear. When you fill in your lips with fat injections, they will appear even more amazing the next time that you go to put on lip liner and lipstick. You’ll actually see where your lips begin, and so will the rest of the world.
Plumping up Your Lips
Not only do you have the option to clearly define your lips, but you can also make them larger. The exact size that you want is a factor that you should discuss with Dr. Sumida during your consultation. You want to make sure that your lips give you the right pout but that they are still proportionate to your face and don’t look overdone.
How Does Fat Injection Work?
During a fat injection procedure, fat is removed from a part of the body where it is more abundant and then injected into the facial lines and wrinkles and lips. Most common places to take the fat from are the abdomen, hips and buttock area. Doctor Sumida can recommend different areas to ensure patient safety and comfort.
Fat injections are extremely safe and performed right in our Folsom, CA office. Because your natural body fat is used during the injection, there is less risk for complication. When fillers are used to plump the lips, there is a slight risk that the body can reject the chemical or gel and cause complications. There is also no risk for allergic reaction.
Fat injections for the lips can be performed on its own or in conjunction with other procedures. In addition to filling in the lips, fat injections can be used to fill in frown and smile lines, and add volume to the cheeks, undereye areas, breasts and buttocks. Doctor Sumida can discuss all of your options with you during your consultation. Contact Nuance Cosmetic Surgery today to find out how you can benefit from fat injection procedures.
