Lip augmentations are done to provide a patient with lips that have better shape, structure, and volume. If you are considering having a lip augmentation done, there are a few things you should know.
The most common method for performing a lip augmentation nowadays is by injecting a dermal filler into the lips and the surrounding areas. Many of these dermal fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in the body. Since hyaluronic acid naturally occurs, it is less likely to cause an allergic reason than previous methods of lip augmentation, such as using collagen. Fat injections and implants can also be used to achieve fuller lips, but many doctors prefer using dermal fillers, as there is less risk of experiencing any unwanted side effects. Many doctors also feel that dermal fillers give them more control over lip volume. It is important to keep in mind that the results experienced typically only last around six months. At that point, more injections are needed to maintain the new volume of your lips.
