Lip augmentation is a procedure that is done to enhance the appearance of the lips, as it makes them fuller and better defined. At Bandak Plastic Surgery, we understand what it takes to create lips that look full and natural, and our goal is always to achieve a successful outcome.
In order to get the most natural looking results, lip augmentation should be done by an experienced injector, with an intimate knowledge of the anatomy of the lips. Dr. Abdalla Bandak is a board certified plastic surgeon with the experience and training to expertly perform lip augmentation, and give you the results you desire.
Lip augmentation has traditionally been done using soft tissue fillers. Belotero and Juvederm, which are both hyaluronic fillers, are commonly used for lip enhancement. The soft tissue fillers are injected into the lips using a tiny needle.
Fat transfer is another technique that is now used to create fuller lips. Treatment involves using fat from another part of the body, and then injecting it into the lips, after it has been purified.
Patients can expect some swelling after treatment, but this usually clears within 2 days. There is no downtime, so you can restart normal activities immediately after the procedure, but exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. The results of lip enhancement typically last about 6 to 12 months.
Who is a good candidate?
People with thin lips who would like a subtle change to make them fuller, or individuals with vertical lines around the lips, are good candidates for lip augmentation.
