Autologous Fat Injections
Autologous fat injections involve harvesting fat from another area of the patient’s body and injecting it into the lips. This method provides a natural and long-lasting result. Autologous fat injections are generally considered safe, as there is a lower risk of complications such as infection or allergic reactions.
Collagen stimulators, such as Radiesse, work by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen, resulting in a gradual increase in lip volume over time. This type of filler offers a longer-lasting result compared to HA fillers.
Frequently Asked Questions About Lip Augmentation
The longevity of lip enhancement using fillers is determined by both the specific filler used for the treatment and each patient’s unique metabolism. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, typically last up to one year, while collagen stimulators like Radiesse may last up to eighteen months.
The most common fillers used for lip augmentation are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane. These fillers provide a smooth, natural-looking enhancement to the lips and can be easily reversed if desired.
Lip augmentation with fillers is generally well-tolerated by most patients. Dr. Panossian will use a topical numbing cream or local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Some mild discomfort may be experienced during the injection process, but this is typically short-lived.
