For fat transfer enhancement, you will have liposuction done at a donor site, like your abdomen or thighs, which will be processed and then injected into your lips. There will be a small incision made at the donor site, and the fat will be extracted through a cannula. You may need several different injections to achieve the results you want.Synthetic fillers are injected directly in the lip to give it volume. One treatment is enough, but it will be temporary and require repeated injections.
Another option is a dermal graft, where a fat graft is taken from deep layers of your skin and then placed under the lining of your lip. All incisions are done inside the mouth.
If you’re having a vermillion advancement, an incision is made on the border of the colored portion of your lip, then raising the border to increase the area of the lip.
Lip implants are usually done through tiny incisions inside the corner of your mouth, with different natural or synthetic implant options available. You can discuss the options with Dr. Jimerson at your consultation.
A lip lift involves an incision made under the nose, where the skin is shortened in order to pull up the lips. If you have a mouth that turns downward, small incisions are made on the side of the mouth and excess skin is removed. The incision is closed using very small sutures.
