We did the research for you to find the three main benefits of lip augmentation so go ahead and check them out.

Why Patients Choose Lip Augmentation

  1. Customizable

    Edward Farrior, MD, F.A.C.S.Do you want a major transformation or a minor adjustment? Either way lip augmentation is a great option. You can choose how the procedure impacts the aesthetic of your lips.

    “When subtle augmentation is desired with the fastest recovery and fewest possible complications I recommend lip advancement," Board Certified, Tampa, FL Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr Edward Farrior said. "This procedure takes advantage of the adjacent tissue of the lip to enhance the visible pink portion. Multiple incisions are made inside the lip and mucosa is advanced outward. In patients with a broad smile, this procedure can lead to a degree of augmentation approaching twice the size of the pre-existing lip. The amount of pain is minimal and the sutures that are used to repair the incision dissolve so their removal is not necessary.”

  2. Quick Recovery

    Many cosmetic procedures require a good deal of recovery, but with lip augmentation this is not the case. The normal texture of your lips will return within just 6 to 12 weeks of the procedure. As long as you don’t interact and talk with a lot of people at your work, you can return to work the same day as the procedure. With a dissolving suture in the lip, you won’t even need to worry about going back to the doctor’s office to get the stitch removed!

  3. Self-Confidence

    It is hard to put the value of establishing your confidence through enhancing your appearance. We all know what it is like to have that part of the body that distracts us from feeling our best. When patients finally get the lip augmentation surgery they’ve been dreaming of for so long, it makes it a lot easier to feel confident. Who can put a price on that?

  • Khloe Kardashian made headlines recently after the paparazzi caught her with the infamous “trout pout” – the result of too many injectable fillers in the lips. Kim Kardashian’s younger sister appeared to have some very swollen and lumpy lips after leaving a Beverly Hills salon last week and many are suspecting that that star had cosmetic surgery. Celebrity plastic surgery doctor Dr. Anthony Youn did not treat Khloe Kardashian but believes that the star did have some type of injectable filler. He tells, “Khloe has a trout pout! The excessively plump appearance of her lips could be due to injections of a filler like Juvederm. Her upper lip is larger than her lower lip, causing her mouth to resemble a trout’s. Most injectable fillers last about 6 months in the lips, so given enough time we may see her lips shrink to a smaller and more typical size.” Another plastic surgery doctor, Dr. Michael Fiorellio who is based in New York City, made a similar conclusion. He suspects that Khloe had some type of filler treatment because, “Her lips look swollen and bruised. The product looks lumpy as well”. Dr. Fiorellio is suggesting that this Kardashian sister had either Juvederm or Restylane injections to make her lips appear larger and fuller. Injectable fillers are among the most popular types of non-invasive cosmetic enhancements around the country, and are an attractive option for women who want to add volume to their lips, fill out hollows in their cheeks, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They’re also more affordable than having surgery and can be a convenient option for those who don’t want to deal with the long downtime and recovery process associate with a surgical procedure like lip implants or a facelift.

  • While thousands of women flock to the plastic surgeon’s office or medical spa for their Botox fix every month, statistics show that men are also adopting the Botox habit. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the number of men seeking cosmetic procedures continues to rise steadily year after year. Whether it’s to attract a mate, get through a mid-life crisis, or just feel more confident when applying for a job, men are relying on quick-fix procedures like Botox, facial fillers, and other minimally-invasive treatments to improve their looks. Experts have dubbed the recent increase in demand for Botox by men as “Brotox”, and it’s being embraced readily by more men across all age groups.

  • If you’ve been thinking about plastic or cosmetic surgery to get rid of wrinkles and lines, you may be able to defy aging without having to go under the knife.
