Lip Augmentation

If you would like to improve the appearance of your lips for that fuller, sexier look, an experienced San Diego plastic surgeon can help you.

Surgical lip augmentation and lip injections have become increasingly common procedures for men and women of all ages to get the lips that they desire.

Some common lip augmentation techniques include:

Alloderm is one of the more popular materials for surgical lip augmentation. It is a natural human material with a 2% risk of infection. Because Alloderm is all natural, the body will eventually absorb the material into its tissues and the cosmetic effects will only be temporary. This procedure is perfect for a patient that may only want temporary effects, or to experiment with a new look before a permanent procedure.

Fat grafting is also fairly common. This procedure involves injecting fat into the lips that is harvested from another part of the body, typically the abdomen area.

Synthetic implants are permanently lasting. Implants are inserted through a small incision in the lip, causing minimal to no scarring. If the body rejects an implant, the implant can be removed.
