Many facial cosmetic surgery patients do not like the look of their lips. Many people, men and women alike, believe their lips are too thin and want to have a fuller, plumper look. There are as many techniques to lip augmentation surgery as there are unique patients. The methods of lip augmentation are specifically designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the lips while plumping the look around the mouth.

Expectations

Realistic expectations are important, for the outcomes, depending on a variety of factors, will be different for everyone. Even though injectable fillers or even semi-solid implants can enhance and improve a patient’s natural look, augmentation surgery will not completely transform a person.

Lip augmentation is generally performed using artificial injectable fillers or through a technique known as fat grafting. While synthetic fillers are most commonly used, fat augmentation through grafting provides an option for individuals seeking a more permanent result. Fat augmentation, a popular take on lip augmentation in the Orange County area, provides a soft and natural feel to the lips while maintaining longer-lasting results.
