There are so many movie stars right now who are famous for their pout. Unfortunately, the majority of us are not blessed with naturally full lips. Instead, they are thin and sometimes uneven. Thankfully, we do not have to feel stuck with the lips that nature gave us. Lip augmentation allows us to increase the size and adjust the shape of our lips into something that we can be happy with.
Lip augmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that is done to add volume to your lips. When your lips have volume and are well-defined, you look younger. Lip augmentation procedures can come in the form of surgical implants, fat transfers and hyaluronic acid fillers.
Lip augmentation will change your facial features. This is because your lips are such a prominent part of your face. Even though your lips are the only thing being treated, you will notice an enhancement to your entire face.
Hyaluronic acid fillers and fat transfers allow our specialist to have complete control over the outcome. Even though dermal fillers using hyaluronic acid are only temporary, more people opt for these procedures than surgery because of how much control they know that they will have over the results. Most people don’t choose surgical procedures until they have more experience with less permanent options.
To be a candidate for lip augmentation, you need to be in overall good health. This is true whether you are receiving a fat transfer, an implant or a dermal filler injection. If you are ever unsure about your candidacy for treatment or which option may be right for you, we can help you decide during your initial consultation.
In addition to being physically healthy, you need to be emotionally ready. Patients are happiest with their results when they undergo lip augmentation for no one other than themselves. That’s why it’s so important to review why you want to change the look and feel of your lips.
Each form of lip augmentation comes with its own benefits, and we can help you decide which technique is right for you at Smith Facial Plastics. Contact our office in Gahanna to schedule your consultation and find out which treatment is best for you.
