LIP ENHANCEMENT (AUGMENTATION)
Plumper, fuller lips can create a desirable look for women. However, not everyone is born with naturally large lips. Women who desire a more prominent lip may choose a lip augmentation procedure with Dr Samer Bassilios Habre, to create a natural appearing upper and lower lip that looks and feels plumper and fuller. There are numerous nonsurgical options including injectable fillers, as well as fat transfer procedures that inject fat taken from the patient’s body and inserting it into the lips. Dr. Bassilios can discuss all of these options during the consultation.
LIP ENHANCEMENT OPTIONS
Countless women come to our plastic surgery clinic for routine injections into the lips. Injectable fillers are a great option to create fuller, plumper lips because they are temporary, less expensive and pose less risk than surgery. There are a variety of filler products available including those made of hyaluronic acid. Our clinic carries numerous brands and depending on the condition of the lips and the desired results, an appropriate filer will be used. Another nonsurgical option is a fat transfer. This process involves removing fat from one part of the body using liposuction, and then refining it and injecting it into the lips using a fine syringe.
Lip augmentation using an injectable filer takes place right inside our clinic. The patient’s lips are numbed with a numbing agent, and then the chosen filler is injected through a syringe until the desired fullness has been achieved. This process typically needs to be repeated every 6-8 months depending on how fast the patient’s body absorbs the injected material.
