For those who desire full lips, lip enhancement/augmentation can be a good option to achieve a fuller, rejuvenated look. This procedure can also improve the wrinkles around both the upper and lower lips. You can improve the look of your lips to achieve a subtle change or lips that look more pouty and dramatic.
This procedure is done through injecting fillers. It is very important that the material is placed properly, which is why Dr. Haque does the injections. The result may be permanent or temporary depending on the type of material.
In most cases, you can get back to your normal routine of life just after one day once your procedure is completed. You may experience minor swelling or bruising but that subsides quite quickly. Those of you who wish to undergo lip enhancement can explore a number of techniques.
Dr Haque can help you pick the most suitable material that best meets your requirements. Some information about the different fillers follows.
Radiesse® comprises smooth calcium hydroxy apatite (CaHA) micro spheres that are suspended in a water-based gel in order to stimulate the body’s production of collagen. It is essential to inject Radiesse with care in order to prevent clumping or abnormal deposits. The results of this treatment generally last for a year.
AlloDerm® is comprised of a cellular human cadaveric dermis and is placed through 2 small incisions to achieve fuller lips. The treatment is carried out on an outpatient basis and the recovery time spans over five to seven days. The procedure is costly as the cost of the product is higher and the outcome can be permanent.
Fat grafting is an excellent method used for soft-tissue defects as well as facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting lip enhancement is carried out by harvesting fat with utmost care from your abdomen or hips. In the next step, the fat is processed to isolate your own body’s fat cells. Then, the fat cells are injected into the plane of the lips to achieve a fuller look. Some over correction is needed since not all of the fat will remain and a second round of injections is needed for a more lasting effect.
