Need Some Lip Plumping? Try Fat Grafting!
With all the talk about fat transfer these days, be it the stem cell facelift, natural breast augmentation or the Brazilian butt lift, it seemed only a matter of time before lip augmentation with fat became popular as well.
In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), lip augmentation rose significantly (49%) in 2011, and fat injections to the lips were up 19%.
During a lip augmentation fat transfer procedure, fat is removed with a mini-liposuction procedure from an area of excess, such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks or thighs. This fat is then purified, with the stem cells and fat isolated, and then injected into the lips.
Why Choose Fat for Your Lip Augmentation Procedure?
If you’re considering lip augmentation, you may be wondering why you would choose fat transfer to the face as opposed to other options like injectable lip fillers or silicone lip implants?
In fact, there are many, many options to choose from when it comes to enhancing the lips, but there are certain benefits to fat transfer lip augmentation.
Whether you’re looking to plump thin lips or restore lost volume due to the aging process, fat transfer is an excellent, permanent alternative to temporary synthetic fillers which require repeat injections in order to maintain their effect.
Studies have shown that about 70-80% of the injected fat will remain beyond the three month point. Furthermore, fat produces a very soft, natural feel compared to other options, namely implants.
Patients also benefit from body contouring in the donor area, whether from the abdomen, buttocks, hips or thighs.
