OVERVIEW

Lip Enhancement or Augmentation in Houston, TX

Lip augmentation improves and rejuvenates the condition of the lips and imparts a younger-looking appearance to the lower face simply and quickly. At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, a full-service cosmetic treatment center, residents of Houston and nearby communities in Texas can enjoy top-quality medical treatments such as lip augmentation, performed by inventive plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo.

Lip Augmentation Rejuvenates Your Entire Face

The lips are often among the first areas in the face to exhibit early evidence of aging and sun damage.  Thin, flat lips marked by vertical lines, commonly called “smoker’s lines,” give you a prematurely aged appearance even when the rest of your face still looks young.  Lip augmentation replenishes fullness and volume, restores symmetry, and adds definition to the lips, while reducing the appearance of those pesky vertical creases around the edges of the lips. A lip enhancement treatment can quickly revitalize your entire facial appearance without much expense or fuss.

OPTIONS FOR LIPS

Options for Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation, or lip enhancement, may be accomplished using surgically positioned lip implants, dermal injectables, or natural fat transfers using fat extracted from problem areas in your own body.

Lip augmentation is an uncomplicated procedure that takes less than an hour to administer. If you are getting lip implants inserted, the procedure requires tiny incisions that will allow Dr. Bachilo to insert the implants.

In the case of dermal fillers, the most suitable injections will be used to create added plumpness and definition in the lips. You may choose from an array of dermal filler options and Dr. Bachilo will recommend the filler most suitable to your specific aesthetic needs. Options may include Juvederm or Juvederm Volbella, one of the newest fillers specifically indicated for lip and perioral area injections.

If you choose the fat transfer option, fat will be harvested from key fatty areas in your own body, such as the hips or thighs, in order to produce the natural fat injections that will be used to add volume to your lips.  In some cases, your body may reabsorb fat from natural fat transfer injections, and the process may need to be repeated.

In any case, the lip augmentation procedure is safe and simple, and has gained widespread popularity, producing satisfying, natural-looking results.

RECOVERY

Lip Augmentation Recovery

There’s no need to worry about any downtime after lip augmentation when performed using fat transfer or dermal filler injections.  In the case of surgical implants, the lips may feel tender and sore for a few days.  All discomfort such as soreness, tenderness, and mild bruising will naturally diminish within a few days. Most patients may safely go on with their normal activities immediately upon leaving the treatment session, but for the first 24 hours after treatment, it is important that you not touch or irritate your lips, or kiss anyone, until all swelling and soreness has subsided.

RESULTS

Results and Follow-up Treatments

Surgical lip augmentation may be considered a semi-permanent, reversible procedure, because while no follow-up treatments are usually required, and results may last for years, you can always change your mind and exchange your lip implants for new ones.  Lip augmentation with dermal fillers or natural fat transfer typically produces results that last for several months.
