What Is Lip Augmentation Surgery?

Lip augmentation in Houston, TX is a procedure that surgically enhances the volume, shape, and appearance of one or both lips. This can be achieved with either a dermal filler, a fat transfer, implant, or a combination. The former is typically a non-surgical option. However, fat transfers and implants require a small incision. The result is a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance that many people desire for their lips.

As people age, their lips often become thinner. Additionally, many people have wished for plumper lips their whole lives. This is your chance to get the look you have been wanting.

What Can A Lip Augmentation Do For You?

Boost Volume & Fullness in the Lips to Give Yourself A More Youthful Appearance!

Throughout history, full lips have commonly been associated with youth and beauty. However, as we age and spend time in the sun, our bodies produce less collagen, which tends to leave lips looking thinner than before. So how can you preserve the fullness of your lips? There is a simple solution – Lip augmentation in Houston.

· Give your face a younger, more energized appearance.

· Achieve greater balance with the rest of the face.

· Get a shapelier smile.

· Increase your confidence with a more balanced and harmonious face.

Lip Augmentation Before And After

As you’re already aware, the lips are an important feature of the face – and when the lips begin to start looking thinner, lip augmentation can enhance the fullness and volume in the lips, in order to create a harmonious, more youthful appearance while:

  • Minimizing wrinkles and fine lines around the lips
  • Giving a more plump, voluminous appearance to the lips

Ideal Candidate for Lip Augmentation

Anyone who is in good overall health and wants to get fuller and plumper lips can benefit from lip augmentation. This is often people who have lost volume in their lips with age. However, even young people may want fuller lips. This is a safe and relatively simple procedure.

Lip Augmentation Consultation and Examination

The process begins with a consultation and examination. During this time, Dr. Michael J. Streitmann will consult with you to discuss your expectations and desired outcome and any potential risks or concerns to ensure the success of the surgery. Our goal is to ensure your complete comfort and satisfaction with the procedure.

Additionally, we will take a medical history and perform an examination. This will be used to ensure that you are a candidate for the procedure. If you are not, Dr. Streitmann may recommend some alternative options.

Lip Enhancement Procedure – Augmentation & Fillers

During lip augmentation surgery, implants or dermal fillers can be used to create your desired appearance. Alternatively, a transfer of natural fat from other parts of the body can enhance the lips. Dr. Streitmann will select the appropriate technique based on your unique goals, lifestyle, health, and current lip condition. Dermal fillers can typically be used as non-invasive lip augmentations.

Dermal fillers are the most popular technique. The most commonly recommended lip augmentation products include Juvederm Ultra, Juvéderm Volbella, and Restylane Refyne. The Juvederm family dermal fillers are made by the same trusted company as Botox Cosmetic and are highly sought after.
This is non-permanent and created from a biocompatible material. They are injected into the lips and provide immediate results with very little recovery time.

Lip Augmentation Recovery & Results

For dermal fillers, once the lip augmentation is performed, recovery time will be minimal – making lip augmentation surgery a quick and effective way to increase fullness and volume in the lips. This is one of the easiest and most reliable ways to enhance the look of the lower face. Light bruising, minor swelling, and tenderness are common. However, this usually only lasts up to 48 hours. There is typically no need for restrictions on activities following dermal fillers.

Lip augmentation surgery, including implants and fat transfers, are more permanent procedures. They have a little more recovery time. However, this is still relatively little. The incision will be made discreetly, often inside the mouth. It may take a few days to get back to regular activity, and exercise should be avoided for a few weeks. However, there is minimal pain which can be managed with medication.

There are small risks of complications such as infection, scarring, and nerve damage. Only choose board-certified surgeons such as Dr. Streitmann to ensure minimal risk.

Nearly all patients are pleased with their lip augmentation results. Those who choose dermal fillers often return for repeat treatments. Conversely, those who opt for surgical procedures frequently report high satisfaction following the recovery period.

Lip Augmentation FAQ

Should I Get Lip Fillers or Fat Graft?

Dermal fillers are the most popular form of lip augmentation. They offer instantaneous results with minimal need for recovery afterward. However, they are a temporary solution. For more permanent results, consider a fat graft or lip implant

What is a Facial Fat Transfer?

A facial fat transfer is a type of cosmetic surgery that involves harvesting fat from an area of the face with excess fat and grafting it to a “hollow” area. This is an effective way to achieve long-term results from lip augmentation surgery.

Can I Fill Other Areas, Too?

Yes, cosmetic fillers, fat transfers, and sometimes implants can fill out other areas of the face and body. For example, the cheeks, hands, and eyes can all be smoother through similar filling techniques. This can help achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated look, reversing volume loss due to age.
