One of the first things you notice about someone when you glance at them is their lips, particularly when they look plump, perky and irresistible. Full lips are appealing because they signify youth, health, vitality and beauty.
However, not all of us are lucky to be born with voluptuous mouths. And even those that are born with it begin to lose that volume as they age. The passing of years affects the lips by causing them to thin and droop at the outer corners.
Fortunately, lip augmentation procedures like Dermal Fat Grafting offered at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC can enhance skinny lips and reverse the signs of aging, giving anyone the irresistible pout they crave.
Fat Grafting Versus Lip Fillers
Most people choose fat grafting because it is permanent, while lip fillers are temporary. A typical filler treatment lasts about four to six months, at which point retreatment is necessary to maintain results.
Fat grafting is also more natural. For example, our advanced Lip Dermal Fat Grafting procedure is a minor surgery that uses a patient’s own fatty tissue removed from a strip of skin from the buttock crease or abdomen. Lip fillers, on the other hand, are synthetic substances, so there is a risk of rejection or reaction.
Also, a fat transfer treatment is slightly more invasive than lip filler.
Dermal Fat Grafting Plus Other Cosmetic Procedures
If you choose fat grafting over lip fillers for your lip augmentation, you can combine the procedure with a slimming procedure like liposuction. We can sculpt one area of the body and use the fat to plump the lips. In addition, Kalos offers various cosmetic surgery techniques. So, you can also include lip enhancement with any other facial plastic surgery procedure.
