Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation is becoming a very popular treatment nowadays for both men and women, although it is more popular in women. Lip augmentation means adding volume to the lips and it can be of two types: surgical and non-surgical. However, non-surgical lip augmentation is more popular than the surgical one and usually done by a trained dermatologist using dermal fillers. Most common fillers today are products that contain substance hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body and it helps to increase the volume in the lips. Lip augmentation can be done for a variety of reasons, including to plump lips that have thinned with age, to add volume to naturally thin lips, and to reshape the lips into a more pleasing appearance.


Advantages of Lip Augmentation by Dermal Filler

  1. Non-surgical lip augmentation by fillers is not permanent. If one does not like the results after the procedure, they can be dissolved and the lips returned to their normal state.
  2. Dermal filler lip augmentation procedures require no downtime and involve little to no side effects. One may experience mild swelling or bruise around the injection site after the procedure, but this is temporary and often goes away in 2 to 3 days.
  3. The injection process of dermal filler is itself is a short and almost painless procedure. Non-surgical lip augmentation often takes around half an hour and requires only topical numbing cream before the procedure. Skilled injectors such as Dr. Satish Titoria use extremely thin needles/cannulas to minimize the number of injections needed, thus making the dermal filler procedure as painless and comfortable as possible

Various types of FDA approved dermal fillers can be used for non-surgical lip augmentation. Which filler will be the best for an individual is decided during the consultation with Dr. Satish Titoria, where he will match a filler according to specific requirements in order to achieve the best results for a person.
