What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation/enhancement is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which a filler is injected into the lips in order to achieve fuller and plumper lips. Different types of filling methods may be used, such as:
- Tissue grafting, which uses a thin strip of fat and collagen tissue from the patients own body to apply to the lips
- Soft tissue fillers, which use products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the body that naturally increases volume
- Fat transfers, which removes a small amount preexisting fat found on the body, usually in the abdomen or buttocks, and places it into the lips.
