Angelina Jolie, Marylin Monroe, Eva Mendez, and Jennifer Garner all have one thing in common – they are most famous for their perfect lips. In so
me cases, it’s their iconic pouts that made it possible for them to achieve the fame, fortune, and success that they have had. While we’re not all blessed with luscious lips, modern medical advances have made it possible to get a whole lot closer to the perfect, youthful, and plump pucker that you have been seeking out.
Lip augmentation can be done in a variety of different ways, including collagen injections, surgical alterations, and solid lip implants. Thanks to the wide variety of different options, women, and men who want a better pair of lips have a number of different ways to improve their visage. Some procedures are minimally invasive and semi-permanent. Others are permanent, and done under general anesthesia. Since there is such a wide variety of different treatments, it’s often best for patients to know what they want before they go through with their lip augmentation plans.
Each option has its own perks and pitfalls, which means that the best kind of lip augmentation will vary from person to person. For example, a woman who decries her thin lips might find that a series of lip injections will give her lips a fuller, more “bee stung” look. On the other hand, a woman who is tired of getting stared at for a lip that is uneven may find that corrective surgery is the best option.
When making the decision to choose a lip augmentation procedure, it’s best to figure out what you do and do not want in your lip augmentation plans. The following concerns should be discussed with your plastic surgeon.
- Do you feel comfortable with an invasive surgery?
- What do you want to correct on your lips? (Shape, fullness…)
- Are you okay with going to the doctor’s office every couple of months for touch-ups?
- What is your budget going to be like?
- Is permanence your number one concern?
- Are you allergic to any medications or latex?
The more you are willing to share with your doctor, the better equipped he will be to tell you what procedure would be best, and how to make the most of your lip augmentation.
While the most popular form of lip augmentation continues to be lip injections, an increasingly popular way of getting bee stung lips is through permanent lip augmentation. In this new procedure, a small implant is placed inside the lips. The implant gives your lips a firmer texture while also improving the volume. Unlike injections, lip implants do not require multiple visits to the doctor for upkeep.
Regardless of which procedure you choose to do, you will need to book your surgery sooner rather than later if you want to have those perfect lips you’ve always dreamed of by mid-Spring. Don’t wait until it’s too late – call Dr. Vitolo for a consultation today.
