Types of lip augmentation procedures
There are several procedures for the enhancement of lips. Three of the most common are:
Fat injections – This is a popular method. Liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat deposits from other parts of your body and injected into the lips. The procedure takes from less than an hour to several hours. This type of enhancement typically lasts for several months to several years.
Restylane Injections - Restylane is manufactured as non-animal, stabilized, FDA approved, hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring material in the body that functions to carry water. It does not have animal protein and, therefore, does not necessitate a skin test before use. The effect is immediate and can last from six to twelve months.
Perma Facial Implants – This is a permanent, customized solution that is FDA approved. It effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles while increasing lip fullness. The implant is inserted using very small incisions and requires a local anesthetic. It takes about thirty minutes to complete the procedure. The results are permanent.

Possible side effects of lip augmentation recovery
Since lip augmentation in Memorial Plastic Surgery is a surgical procedure, there is a potential for risks as there is with any surgery. Some possible side effects of Restylane injections include swelling, redness and tenderness. Fat injections can sometimes cause lumpiness and injection-related reactions. Perma Facial does not cause a reaction.
A lip augmentation procedure is a cosmetic surgery with a high satisfaction rate. Most women that have the procedure would have it again if they needed further enhancement. Besides full, sensual lips, an additional benefit from lip augmentation is that it will diminish wrinkles and fine lines above the lips, for a youthful, pleasant smile.
