Lip fillers are a form of cosmetic surgery done by licensed doctors that aims to enhance lip fullness by filling in lip areas that have been enlarged by fat, collagen, or saline fat. Lip fillers also known as fat transfers, are commonly performed on the upper lip, behind the ear or inner lips. Lip augmentation can also be used to enhance lower lip fold, Cupid’s bow, beard, and neck lip enhancement. Cosmetic surgery is also known as liposuction and lipoplasties. Lip filling is the most common plastic surgery procedure performed and one of the most popular among women. In fact, it is the second most popular surgical procedure for women after breast augmentation.
Liposuction, as stated before, involves the injection of diluted anesthesia, local anesthesia, or nitrous oxide into target areas using a tube or a small needle. After injecting the diluted anesthesia or a local anesthetic into the targeted area, a thin lumen is created around the site that is being treated. This lumen is designed to help reduce swelling and to facilitate the healing process of the treated skin and the fat being injected. After the injection, the treated area is wrapped in a dressing and allowed to recover. The dressing will normally be changed every two weeks to prevent infection and assist with the healing process.
Women who choose to undergo liposuction to enhance their facial features are doing so because they feel that their facial features are not symmetrical or balanced. Often times women notice that they have a certain “fishy” or “unattractive” looking lip look that may be caused by excess fat deposits in the facial features. Liposuction can also be used to plump out lumps and bumps on the chin and cheeks. It is also frequently used to plump up the eyebrows and to plump up lips that may be too thin.
Facelift and rhinoplasty procedures are quite similar to liposuction in that both procedures are used to restore a youthful appearance and increase facial volume. However, the goals for these two treatments are very different. While liposuction focuses mainly on a superficial appearance of one’s lips, facelifts focus on reshaping the entire face to create a more youthful and appealing look. Other plastic surgery treatments such as botox and dermal fillers are used to accomplish similar results.

The procedure involves injecting the filler into the crease of your lips, creating a long lasting lift that mimics the shape of an underlying tissue.
