Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery. It can also be a non surgical procedure. Here, the appearance of the lips is improved by increasing its fullness.

Some people are born with congenital defects, like a cleft lip. Lips also loose their shape and volume as people age and facial contours change. They become dull and wrinkled. In such cases, to restore their lips or to increase its attractiveness, lip augmentation is performed. There are many way of augmenting the lips. In some cases, surgeons will excise fat from an area on the body where it can be spared and inject it or place it surgically into the lips. Elsewhere, filler gels are injected into the lips to restore their shape. Examples for filler gels are Restylane, Juvederm, etc. Filler gels may last for up to six months and longer.
