Full and voluminous lips are a vital mark of facial beauty and youth. Lip augmentation procedure is designed to enhance the fullness of the lips, if they are naturally thin or have lost volume over the years. If the patient wants to avoid plastic surgery, they still have a number of lip augmentation options available.
Patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive lip augmentation at MBody, a practice led by board certified plastic surgeons.
Lips are a defining characteristic of an individual’s overall facial appearance. The plastic surgery experts as well as trained staff members at MBody employ cutting edge lip enhancing techniques to create safe and desirable results in a minimally invasive way. Lip augmentation is a highly personal decision, and Mbody makes the decision easier by helping to customize the procedure according to the patient’s unique needs.
Adding volume to thinning lips can create improved facial harmony and help to balance the overall facial structure. If the patient is dissatisfied with the shape of their lips, or if the lips have lost volume or become wrinkled due to aging, lip augmentation can be performed as a swift and effective procedure involving no downtime.
Fine lines, which are also called smoker’s lines, can form on the top of the lip as a person ages. If volume is added to the upper lip, these lines will be smoothed away, and a well-defined border will be created on the edge of the lips. Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for lip augmentation.
Some of the safe, effective and proven injectable treatment options for lip augmentation at MBody include:
Juvederm is an FDA approved dermal filler injectable gel that can help to volumize the lips with just a single injection. Juvederm is considered ideal for adding shape and volume to the lips and mouth area. The treatment can be planned for either subtle corrections or a more voluptuous appearance, depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals.
Just like Juvederm, another popular dermal filler injectable treatment is Restylane. The key component in Restylane is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body to help the skin tissue to retain moisture and stay hydrated. Restylane injections can help to maintain lip fullness, which can last for up to six months. Restylane is a gentle treatment that may be more suitable for patients who are trying lip augmentation for the first time.
Autologous Fat Transfer
This is a minimally invasive procedure that makes use of the fatty tissue harvested from the patient’s own body. Purified fat is collected from surplus fat areas and re-injected into lip area for enhanced definition and fullness. Results are longer lasting and more natural looking because the injected tissue belongs to the patient’s own body.
