When you look in the mirror, there is one feature that you are not happy to see. It’s your mouth. Your lips are simply lacking in volume. As you get older, you may have noticed how they are thinning out more and more. Or maybe you were just born with naturally thin lips. There is nothing that you personally can do to change the shape and fullness of your lips. If you want to pucker up and have that pretty pout that makes movie stars famous, think about lip augmentation via fat injections.
Why Choose Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation allows you to restore the volume you have lost or plump up lips that have always been lacking when it comes to volume. Aging takes a toll on your skin as collagen production drops down. Your lips are one of the first victims of the passage of time. You can give your lips a boost in a variety of ways. Lip implants could be inserted into your lips. However, if you are not happy with them, you will have to undergo a more involved procedure to have them removed. Dermal fillers could give you positive results, but they are only temporary. Fat injections use the process of fat transfer to give you lasting, natural results as you access the potential of your own fat and put it to good use.
How are Fat Injections Used During Lip Augmentation?
Like other procedures that use fat injections to increase volume, such as a Brazilian butt lift, the first step is to harvest excess fat from your body. Our surgeon will identify an area on your body where you have fat to spare. The fat is then removed from this area and purified. The fat is finally injected into the part of your body you want to enhance. Fat injections can give you full, luscious lips without the possible complications that can come with dermal fillers or implants. You are unlikely to have a negative reaction when you use a substance that comes from your own body. Your lips will look and feel natural when you are done.

When the fat and fullness has disappeared from your lips, fat injections can put it back.
