Lip enhancement, or lip augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure designed to increase the volume of the lips. It can be achieved through surgery or injectable fillers. Each type of lip enhancement procedure comes with its own benefits, and the best procedure for you will depend on your personal situation and your cosmetic goals.
What’s involved in a lip enhancement procedure?
Dr. Pryor offers many different types of lip enhancement treatments. Some of these procedures include fat transfer injections, fillers and permanent lip implants, such as the convenient and adjustable Permalip®. We will help you decide which of these procedures would be best for you during your consultation.
A fat transfer involves taking excess fat from a donor area on the body, purifying it, and transferring it to the lips. This has become an increasingly popular option for lip enhancement, as this method virtually eliminates the risk of allergic reaction.
Injectable fillers offer another popular option among those who would like to add volume to their lips. This temporary lip enhancement treatment can be performed with a variety of different substances, all of which are designed to add fullness and volume to your lips. This is a temporary treatment that can last anywhere from a few months to a year depending on the type of material used. Injectable fillers are easily customizable, require no downtime and typically take very little time to complete. They can also be safely repeated as often as needed.
Implant procedures of any type are permanent. Patients will not need more than one procedure to achieve permanently fuller lips. Lip augmentation surgery can be performed in a variety of ways, and Dr. Pryor will help you decide which specific method would benefit you the most. Patients can also opt for a lip lift, a procedure designed to enhance the look and shape of the lips. When it comes to effective lip enhancement, Dr. Pryor offers a wide variety of options.
