Lip Enhancement

What Is Lip Enhancement?

Lip enhancement involves a number of procedures to restore lip volume and to smooth the lip lines around the lips and mouth. While many surgical procedures like lip implants can help in lip augmentation, many board certified plastic surgeons associated with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons prefer using minimally invasive treatments like lip enhancement for achieving natural-looking results.

Why consider lip enhancement?

If you are unhappy with your facial features and want to enhance thin or asymmetrical lips without opting for plastic surgery, cosmetic treatments like lip enhancement can help you feel more confident with your looks.

A skilled cosmetic surgeon can help bring about these changes through a lip enhancement procedure that can:

  • Restore lip volume
  • Even out the lip lines
  • Improve upper and lower lip symmetry
  • Redefine the shape of the lips

How are Juvederm fillers used for lip enhancement?.

Juvederm fillers represent the industry gold standard in terms of efficacy, patient safety, and quality. Each of their fillers contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. HA helps to add volume to treated areas in the face. In addition, it smooths fine lip lines and wrinkles.

There are two Juvederm formulas available to address loss of lip volume and thinning lips.

  • Juvederm Volbella XC – Juvederm Volbella XC is ideal for those who want fuller, plump lips along with correction of facial lines and wrinkles around the mouth. These lines, often known as perioral lines or lip lines, are among one of the most common cosmetic complaints among aging women. Juvederm Volbella XC is an all-in-one treatment option to address these concerns with a simple treatment process. Juvederm is an injectable treatment that uses a very tiny needle. Furthermore, it’s formulated with lidocaine to make the lip injection as painless as possible.
  • Juvederm Ultra XC – Juvederm Ultra XC is ideal for patients who want lip enhancement, but do not necessarily need treatment for facial wrinkles. This may be the case if you have naturally thin lips even before the aging process sets in. Juvederm Ultra XC is available to patients over 21 years of age.

When it comes to dermal fillers, people often think about correcting fine lines and wrinkles on the face. However, dermal fillers can have beneficial effects for another common sign of aging: thinning lips. Just like other areas of the face, there is a loss of lip volume over time due to collagen degradation and loss of moisture in the skin. Therefore, you might crave a fuller, bigger pout as you get older. Fortunately, you can see amazing results with Juvederm fillers for lip enhancement with WildBerryMD in Tucson.

What are the benefits of using dermal fillers for lip enhancement?

Some of the key benefits of dermal lip fillers are:

  • The procedure takes less than 30 minutes
  • The results can be customized for each patient. It is easy to adjust the amount of filler to achieve precise results
  • Little to no downtime post treatment
  • The changes are noticeable immediately post treatment
  • Final results can be achieved within 2 weeks
  • The side effects are mild or minor. Serious complications are rarely experienced after a lip enhancement procedure
  • It is administered under local anesthesia. There is no need for general anesthesia or hospitalization

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does lip enhancement last?

Both Juvederm Volbella XC and Juvederm Ultra XC are not permanent solutions. The results of these procedures last up to 1 year. Each treatment can also be repeated annually to preserve the achieved results.

Do results look natural?

Juvederm fillers have a thick, gel-like consistency. This reduces how far these formulations may travel when they are injected into the skin. Therefore, results are predictable and natural looking. However, it also helps to visit a qualified physician with lots of experience administering dermal fillers. This will ensure you have the most natural looking results available.

Almost anyone over 21 is a candidate for Juvederm fillers for lip enhancement. If you want fuller lips and are in relatively good health, you can see beautiful results with Juvederm fillers.

How are lip implants used for lip enhancement?

You can achieve semi-permanent lip enhancement with lip implants. They are a more lasting solution and require minimal maintenance. The lip implants are made from a soft, flexible silicone rubber or biodegradable substance and are used to increase lip volume.

What is fat grafting?

Autologous fat injections, also called fat grafting, use fat from another part of your body as a lip filler. Fat grafting typically involves liposuction surgery on a different area of the body, and the procedure can be done without incisions on the face or lips. Fat injections should only be performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon with specialized training in fat transfer procedures. With such a provider, fat injections can achieve a beautiful augmented lip contour that looks and feels very natural and last for years.
