Sensual lips and an attractive pout are something that most women dream about. You can enhance your youthful facial appearance with fuller lips. Patients can use lip enhancement cosmetic surgery for achieving their cosmetic goals in a sustainable fashion. There are many noninvasive options available if you don’t want to get a surgical procedure done.
The plastic surgeon may suggest a lip enhancement treatment based on dermal fillers. You can achieve plumper and more defined lips with this. You should know that dermal fillers offer results for a brief period of time. On the other hand, lip augmentation surgery provides permanent results.

Suitable Candidacy for Lip Augmentation
Lip enhancement surgery can be performed on adults of any age. However, patients with naturally thin lips are ideal candidates for the procedure. Your surgeon may recommend the procedure if you have suffered volume loss due to aging or any other factor.
Candidates need to be in good health before getting lip augmentation plastic surgery. This will result in quicker recovery. Patients should keep reasonable expectations to begin with.
Lip Enhancement Using Implants
You can achieve permanent lip enhancement with implants. There are several different types of lip implants available today. Your plastic surgeon will recommend one that is most appropriate for you based on your individual goals and anatomy. Lip implants help in making the lips shapelier and fuller.
It doesn’t take more than an hour to complete lip implant procedure. Following anesthesia, the surgeon will make a tiny incision to begin the plastic surgery. This is usually at the mouth corners to keep the scars discreet. Your cosmetic surgeon will move to carve out a thin tunnel for accommodating the implant.
The tunnel needs to be made accurately for ensuring correct placement of implant. This also helps in achieving natural and even looking results.
Lip Enhancement with Fat Transfer
The plastic surgeon may recommend lip augmentation through fat transfer if you are not a suitable candidate for lip implants. The procedure will entail removing surplus fat from a donor site on your body and then injecting it into the lips. This procedure can provide natural looking and soft lips in a less invasive manner.
Allergic reactions are rare in this procedure since the fat is removed from your own body. The surgeon will make tiny pricks on the lips using a syringe and blunt needle. These are generally 0.2 centimeters in diameter and not visible easily.
Lip augmentation plastic surgery is a relatively minor procedure whether done through fat transfer or implants.
Lip Enhancement Recovery
It usually takes 1 to 3 days to recover from lip implantation. However, your surgeon will ask you to refrain from pulling on the lips or putting too much pressure for 7 to 14 days. This includes yawning too wide or compressing the lips. Female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan receives patients from Dallas, Plano, Texas, and nearby areas for lip enhancement surgery.
