Is a lip augmentation right for you?

A lip augmentation is not just about making your lips bigger. When considering a lip augmentation many different factors must betaken into consideration.In order to ensure that the surgery is donecorrectly and to your needs, consult a board certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. JamesMarotta of Marotta Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Marotta is trained in both the aesthetic and technical aspects of lip augmentations. Both are extremely important in relation to the outcome of the procedure.

Over 8,000 lip enhancement surgeries were performed in 2013, according tothe American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), making it an increasingly popular cosmetic option for patients. Marotta Facial Plastic Surgery offers a range of lip enhancement treatments including:

Non-surgical temporary enlargement (Restylane):As the first FDA-approved product for lip enhancement, Restylane can give your lips the definition and fullness you have always wanted. This type of augmentation can leave your lips looking and feeling as natural as before.

Permanent solutions (fat injections): A fat injectionis derivedfrom your own body. It is a soft tissue that can survive long periods of time as living tissue. Fat is taken from the abdomen and injected into the lips.

Permanent solutions (V-Y advancement): In this process, lips are enhanced from the inside out. The lining of the inside of the lip, the mucosa, is pushed forward to make the lips appear fuller.

Lip augmentations are on the rise, with many people are seeking a fuller, more distinct top lip, as opposed to both the top and the bottom.
