Full, natural-looking lips can enhance even the most beautiful face. Unfortunately, not many women are born with naturally plump lips, so they have to resort to lip augmentation. Located in Lone Tree, Emmett Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Jennifer Emmett, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, has helped Denver and Centennial area women get full, luscious lips through lip augmentation.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a procedure that improves the shape, size and firmness of your lips. Over time, your lips can lose their plumpness, making them appear too thin. Many younger patients opt for lip enhancement to obtain fuller, sexier lips. Older patients select lip augmentation to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth while restoring volume to their lips.
Implants vs. Injectable Fillers
Lip augmentation is achieved with implants or injectable dermal fillers. Lip implants require small incisions to be made in the corners of your mouth or along the upper line of your lip where small tube-shaped implants filled with synthetic material can be placed to add fullness to your lips. This method of lip augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, and the results are permanent.
Injectable dermal fillers are less invasive and take mere minutes to administer. Dermal fillers are temporary, lasting six to nine months, so you have time to see how you look and feel before electing for a more invasive option. There are several dermal fillers that can be used to enhance your lips.
Benefits of Lip Augmentation
Thinning lips, along with lines and wrinkles around your mouth, can draw attention away from you natural beauty. They can also cause you to look older. Lip augmentation can enhance your appearance by filling out your lips and erasing signs of aging, including wrinkles. Lip enhancement can improve your facial balance, so your full, pouty lips will match the smooth, defined contours of the rest of your face.
Is Lip Augmentation Right for Me?
If you think your lips are too thin or you aren’t satisfied with their appearance, lip enhancement may be right for you. If you want to look younger by restoring volume and definition to overly thin lips and erasing lines and wrinkles around your mouth, lip augmentation could be the solution.
