Lip augmentation is a cosmetic enhancement that has become more popular in recent years. It reverses the effects of aging on thinning lips while restoring lip definition and contour. This procedure uses injectable fillers to create plumper, more attractive lips by enlarging and reshaping the upper and lower lips.
The enhancement fillers that are used can be either natural or synthetic materials with the most common being hyaluronic acid (Restylane®) and fat. These are both natural materials which the body will slowly absorb over a period of months. In order to maintain optimal results, these injections will need to be repeated periodically. Different longer-lasting options using some synthetics are available and include implantable materials like AlloDerm™, Gore-Tex™ and SoftForm™.
With so many different types of treatments available, it is important to talk with an expert to discuss the risks and limitations of each product, along with the details of the procedure. Dr. Compton can provide the information you need to make an informed decision regarding cosmetic enhancements and help you discover which option will be best for you.
