Many women may find that they are unhappy with the shape and size of their lips. Perhaps their lips are thin and lacking the voluminous appearance they desire. While some imperfections of the lips can be masked with cosmetics such as lipstick, some can only be improved with plastic surgery. At Berardi Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, Dr. Joseph Berardi is pleased to offer lip augmentation services. In fact, he offers three methods that are available in reshaping and volumizing the lips. This includes:
- Dermal fillers – first and foremost are dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable gels that are administered into the lips to add volume. These fillers are often formulated with hyaluronic acid, which attracts water molecules. Dermal fillers will last several months before they are naturally and safely absorbed by the body. Most patients who want to maintain their lip augmentation without surgery will find that regular injections is a great way to achieve results without being invasive or expensive.
- Fat transfers – for patients who want a longer-lasting results, injections such as fat transfers may be used. The doctor will remove fat from elsewhere on the patient’s body, purify it, and then reinject it into the lips to add volume right where it is needed. Fat transfers eliminate the risk of any allergic reaction, and lasts much longer than dermal fillers. This may be a great way to achieve results that provide improvement for many years!
- Lip implants – for a more permanent solution to volume issues, lip implants might be recommended by our team. Lip implants are very small implants surgically placed where needed to boost the volume and size of the lips. These are most often used for patients who have thin lower lips and are seeking enhancement that will remain permanent.
