Lip augmentation increases the size of the lip for patients whose lips have lost volume with age, or who are unhappy with the natural appearance of their lips. Through injectable fillers, autologous fat grafts or re-positioning of the lip (v-y lift, lip lift) patients can achieve larger, fuller lips. Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm Ultra can be injected to lips in the office with minimal recovery. Fat grafts and surgical lip lifts may require twilight sedation. The recovery period does vary from case to case, and you will experience swelling and possible bruising that can last two to three weeks, but some people feel they can get back to their routines after one week. With realistic expectations and good overall health, most patients are satisfied with the results of this procedure.
