What You Should Know About SMAS Lip Grafting

perfect lips

If you’re looking to enhance your facial features, there are a variety of cosmetic procedures that you can consider. One of the most popular procedures today is SMAS Lip Grafting, which is a type of lip augmentation surgery that can help you achieve fuller, more youthful-looking lips.

SMAS Lip Grafting is a surgical procedure that involves harvesting a small portion of the underlying tissue from the SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) layer of the face. This tissue is then used to enhance the volume and shape of the lips, resulting in a more natural-looking and long-lasting result.

Here’s what you should know about SMAS lip grafting.

The Procedure is Safe and Effective

SMAS Lip Grafting is a safe and effective procedure that Dr. Benjamin Stong performs at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, in Atlanta. The procedure involves the use of fibrofatty tissue removed from a facelift and placed into the upper or lower lips through microscopic incisions inside the mouth. The tissue grafts add shape and volume to your lips.

The Results are Long-Lasting

Unlike temporary lip fillers, SMAS Lip Grafting provides long-lasting results that can last for several years. As the tissue is taken from your own body, there is no chance of rejection or allergic reaction, and the results are natural-looking and permanent.

Recovery Time is Minimal

The recovery time for SMAS lip grafting is minimal, with most patients able to return to their normal activities within a few days. However, it’s important to avoid strenuous exercise and other activities that could cause swelling or bruising in the first few days after the procedure.

SMAS Lip Grafting Can Be Combined with Other Procedures

SMAS Lip Grafting can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as brow lifts and eyelid surgery, to achieve a more comprehensive and natural-looking result. In fact, SMAS Lip Grafts typically use the SMAS fat harvested during a facelift procedure. Dr. Stong always discusses your concerns and goals to determine what procedures would give you the best results and then makes recommendations for combination treatments. You will have a completely personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs and goals.

The Procedure is Customizable

SMAS Lip Grafting is a highly customizable procedure that can be tailored to meet your specific needs and goals. Dr. Stong adjusts the amount of tissue harvested and grafted to achieve the desired shape and volume, and can also use different techniques to achieve a more natural-looking result.
