Let’s face it: while plump lips have never really been out of style, they’re certainly making a resurgence on the red carpet, Instagram, and everywhere else you turn. Thanks to celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Angelina Jolie, more women are curious as to how they can achieve a plumper, more luscious pout.
The answer, of course, is lip augmentation!
What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is any type of procedure that’s designed to increase lip volume. Lip augmentation can take many shapes and forms, but it’s usually accomplished via dermal filler injections or with silicone implants. At Lakemont Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we prefer to use dermal fillers, as they achieve a more natural appearance.
Some lip augmentation procedures also have the added benefit of minimizing the appearance of smoker’s lines and vertical wrinkles around the mouth. This is because once the lips increase size, the wrinkles become fainter and more smoothed out. Lip augmentation is an excellent solution for clients looking to minimize the appearance of smoker’s lines.
What Are the Benefits of Lip Augmentation?
The benefits of lip augmentation can be profound, especially for clients who are unhappy with their thinning or aging lips. For example:
- For younger patients, the biggest benefit is seeing plumper, more defined lips.
- For older patients, the biggest benefits involve smoothness, slight improvement in lip volume, and the minimization of the most common signs of aging.
Lip augmentation results via dermal fillers typically last anywhere from six to nine months. This is different from other dermal fillers (which usually last longer) because the filler formula is more viscous so as to preserve natural mouth movements.
