Lip Dermal Fat Grafting
Soft, full lips enhance your smile and create an attractive balance to your facial features. When the lips are too thin due to genetics or aging, it can detract from the beauty of your mouth. Lip augmentation can be performed with dermal filler injections, but this only temporarily gives your lips the fullness you desire. A long-lasting, natural option is lip dermal fat grafting which is available at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan.
Fuller lips are a common request Dr. Lesley Rabach, renowned expert facial surgeon, hears from our patients. Individuals of all ages desire a lip augmentation to add volume to their lips. Some people are born with thinner, flatter lips and want to add more fullness to their lips for a more sensuous appearance. Older patients often want to restore the youthful volume that is lost as fat dissipates under skin with age. Dermal fat grafting can add natural fat harvested from another area of the body to the lips, creating the desired shape and plumpness.
Lip Plumping and Augmentation
Fat grafting for lip augmentations has benefits over filler injections. While facial fillers using hyaluronic acid can offer quick, effective results, the fullness does not last. With lip dermal fat grafting, your own fat is added to your lips. It feels and looks natural, and we can harvest the fat from various areas on your body, sterilize the fat and add it under the skin of the lips. Fat grafting lip augmentation results in long-lasting, full lips that do not shrink in size or need additional treatments a few months down the road.
