Lip Enlargement & Augmentation | Scottsdale, AZ
Lip Enhancement Options
The techniques used during a facelift vary depending on the patient’s facial features, goals, conditions, and expectations. The level of invasiveness, placement of incisions, what layers of tissues will be corrected, and what risks may be associated with the surgery are something Dr. Mata will discuss with you before moving forward with the surgery to determine what technique is best for you. These are the different facelift surgical techniques:
Lip enhancement using implants places an implant according to the preferred size and shape that will increase volume in the lips. The result will look and feel natural, especially after several months when the implant is settled in its position. This is a permanent enhancement that may also be removed if the patient desires. Two implant types can be used: Advanta Lip, which uses a synthetic Gore-Tex material that offers a fuller result with a firmer feel; and PermaLip™, which is a solid silicone material that offers a soft, natural result. The incisions will be made on the outer corner of the mouth and the implant is inserted through a tunnel. The scars are concealed as the incisions are made along the natural lip line, and the sutures are so fine that once dissolved, they are unnoticeable. The procedure is performed in our Scottsdale, AZ surgical office under deep sedation.
FAT TRANSFER INJECTIONS
The fat deposits are harvested from the patient’s own body by means of liposuction. These collected fats are purified and reinstated with tiny syringes into the lips. Dr. Scottsdale® will take the extra measure of reinstating the fat tissues, slowly layering the filler to reshape the lips to meet the patient’s aesthetic desires. Learn more
This is a popular way to enhance the lips in a non-surgical manner. Fillers are made from substances that are found naturally within the body such as hyaluronic acid. The result is realistic and looks and feels natural. Fillers produce beautiful results, however, they are considered short-term, and reinjection is advised every 6 to 12 months. Incisions are not necessary. The fillers are injected through a small, fine needle directly into the lips. No anesthesia is required, but our staff uses a dental block to numb the lips to prevent any discomfort or pain.
