Lip augmentation, also known as lip enhancement, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to increase the size, shape, and fullness of the lips. This can be achieved through a variety of methods, including the use of injectable fillers such as hyaluronic acid or fat transfer, which are injected into the lips to create a plumper appearance.
The procedure can be performed on both the upper and lower lips, and can also be used to correct asymmetry or restore lost volume due to aging. The results of lip augmentation are typically temporary, lasting anywhere from a few months to a year or more, depending on the type of filler used.
While lip augmentation is generally considered safe, there are risks associated with the procedure, including bruising, swelling, and infection. It’s important to discuss these risks with your doctor before undergoing the procedure. Additionally, it’s important to choose a qualified and experienced provider who can help you achieve your desired results while minimizing the risks and potential complications.
