About Lip Augmentation
JUVÉDERM and Restylane are made from hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a natural complex sugar found in all living cells. HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density. Therefore, it is a great option for plumping wrinkles and augmenting lips.
Fat transfer is another quick and efficient way to plump up lips and give them a full and beautiful result. The potential to use your own fat is a nice option for those who want to lose some fat in the tummy or hip area and “transplant” the fat to the lips. The potential beauty of this option is fat can be permanent or last a few years in some patients. It may take 2 to 3 sessions because not all fat transferred actually survives. We may go back and layer the fat in the lips usually 6 to 12 months later.
Lip augmentation is performed in the office and can be combined with other medical spa treatments. A dental block or local anesthesia can be given so there is no downtime.
Some patients find that as they age, the length of the skin above the upper lip lengthens and covers up the bottom edge of the front teeth. With a lip lift in Reno or Tahoe/Truckee, Dr. Virden removes the strip of excess skin from underneath the nose to rejuvenate the area around the mouth and lips.
