with naturally thin lips.
Lip augmentation is
appropriate for patients
who wish to enhance the lips they are
born with and for patients

to restore the lips aging takes away.

Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with
beauty and youth.
It has been suggested that this is because the lips
occupy both sides of the face and,
with the smile, constitute a major
focal point of overall facial beauty.

You might not a good candidate for lip augmentation if you have oral herpes, scarring,
or certain diseases such as diabetes, lupus, connective tissues disorders, or

center and you will be sent home the same day. Your surgeon may use local
anesthesia to make you more comfortable during the injection of the filler. The local
anesthetic (pain killer) may be topical (applied to the skin) or injected prior to the

Lip Injections or Lip implants can enhance and improve your natural
look, but they're not designed to create a radical change in your appearance.
Although non-surgical procedures give excellent temporary solutions to
cosmetic enhancements, they do not provide permanent results.

Artecoll/Artecoll Lip Augmentation

Artecoll is composed mainly of tiny synthetic beads (polymethyl methacrylate)
that stay in the lips, and raise them. This technique lasts longer than
fat or collagen injections.

Autologen/ Autologen Lip Augmentation

Bovine Collagen/Collagen Lip Augmentation

Dermalogen/Dermalogen Lip Augmentation

and processed to avoid the spread of disease. The effects are temporary, and are
similar to the effects of collagen injections.

Permanent lip augmentation

Implants and Surgeries/Lip Augmentation Surgery

Permanent lip augmentation results in beautifully sculpted and lifted lips with materials that resist
absorption into the body, unlike temporary injectables. This procedure is generally performed
under local anesthetic, and in some cases, light sedation.

You will most likely receive local anesthesia. A procedure can take up to two hours at your doctor's
office or outpatient center, depending on the complexity, and you will be sent home the same day.

Surgery is not just for the aging face, but also for those that desire to change what mother nature
failed to give us: fuller lips (as well as smoother complexions, higher cheekbones and sculpted

Alloderm/Alloderm Lip Augmentation

Alloderm is the most popular material for lip augmentation. It is a natural collagen sheet harvested
from cadavers and is screened and highly processed. The standards by which it is processed
are very strict. The risk of infection is approximately 2%.

Under a local anesthesia, the material is inserted through tiny incisions made in the inside corners
of the mouth. Stitches are used to close the incisions. AlloDerm eventually becomes integrated
with the natural tissues of the body. The material can be absorbed, so the results are only temporary,
lasting from 6 months to a year.

Fascia/Fascia Lip Augmentation

Fascia (white connective tissue) extracted from a cadaver can be injected or surgically implanted.

Fat Injection/Fat Injection Lip Augmentation

Fat can also be injected into the lip. The fat is harvested from another area of the body (often the
abdomen or thighs) and is purified before it is injected into the lips. An advantage to this procedure
is that there is no possibility of an allergic reaction. As with collagen, results are temporary but
usually lasts longer than collagen injections.

Fat injections can cause lumping or scarring.

Fat grafting/Fat Transfer/Lip Augmentation Fat Transfer

Surgeons harvest through liposuction or excision the patient’s fat from places on the body where
it can be spared and either injected or surgically placed into the lips. Surgical applications usually
require general anesthesia.

Gore-Tex, SoftForm and soft ePTFE /Gortex Lip Augmentation

Gore-Tex, SoftForm and soft ePTFE are other synthetic options with permanent results. They do
not shrink and are never absorbed into the body. They also remain in place because scar tissue
forms on either end.

To insert the implant, a small incision is made in the inside of the lip. The material is then made
into the shape of a small tube and it is inserted with a small needle.

Synthetic implants are foreign substances and may become infected or be rejected by the body.
If this occurs, the implants can be removed.

Recovery Time

It's important that you know yourself. Discuss how much time you think you'll need for recovery with
your doctor. It may be necessary to take some time off work. You also may not be able to exercise
for a few days to a few weeks depending on the type of procedure.

Your recovery will depend on your lifestyle and which procedure you undergo.

Return to normal activities: usually within a day.Bruising and swelling may last as long as a week.
Graft recipients require 1 to 2 weeks.They may experience some problems with drooling.

Grafting also may leave the lips feeling unnaturally stiff for 2 to 3 months after the procedure.
Any non-dissolving stitches may be removed about 7-10 days after the procedure.

As with any procedure it is recommended that you stop aspirin or any type of blood thinner two
weeks prior to treatment to help minimize bruising and swelling.

Risks and side effects

Most patients are satisfied with their lip augmentation procedure and would undergo the treatment
again.As with any surgery, there are risks and complications. You can experience bleeding that
might require going back to surgery to stop the bleeding. There is also a risk of infection that may
require antibiotics or implant removal.

Overaggressive injections can lead to lumpiness while too little can result in ridges.Common reactions
can range from redness, swelling or itching at the injection site(s). Other possible complications
include bleeding, uneven lips, movement of the implants or extrusion, when an implant breaks
through the outermost surface of the skin. The usual, expected swelling and bruising can last from
several days to a week.

Graft procedures may also leave some lips feeling unnaturally stiff for 2 to 3 months.

Patients with facial nerve disorders, severe hypertension or recurrent herpes simplex lesions
should also eschew lip augmentation. As in all surgeries, smokers complicate completion of
their procedure as well as the speed of healing.

Gore-tex, despite its impressive rates of success in lip augmentation and other procedures,
is nonetheless a foreign body which bears a slight risk of becoming infected or rejected.

Fat transfer can last longer than other injected materials but can have lumping or scarring effects.

up to $4,500. The cost depends on a variety of factors, including the type of doctor who will be
