One of the parts of the body that people want to enhance the most is the lips. A nice pair of full lips conveys desirability and sensuality–it can make you look sexy or debonair or just plain prettier and more handsome. That said, however, many people are not always sure what lip enhancement will entail. With that in mind, our Brooklyn plastic surgeon and our staff want to discuss a few different options that are out there for lip augmentation and lip enhancement.

One of the first options for lip augmentation we should discuss is the use of lip implants. These are safe, synthetic tubes that are discreetly placed into your lips. These are long-lasting unlike other lip augmentation solutions that are out there.

One of the most popular treatments for lip augmentation is injectable fillers. One of the most well known fillers for the lips is collagen. Collagen is a type of naturally occurring protein that is found in the body. It comes in many different varieties. Collagen can be injected into the lips to achieve a fullness that was not previously there.

Another injectable filler that can be used to enhance the lips and take care of wrinkling around the mouth is Brooklyn Restylane®. Restylane® injections, like collagen injections, are derived from a naturally occurring substance in the body. Restylane® is designed for filling out all sorts of sunken in area around the face.

So which option for lip augmentation will be best for you and your needs? Since injectable fillers only last for a few weeks at a time, they are only a temporary solution to your needs for lip enhancement. Lip implants are permanent, but they may not be what you’re looking for based on your situation.

The best way to determine the best option for your lip augmentation needs is to visit our cosmetic surgery offices for a consultation.
