ABOUT LIP AUGMENTATION
At Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach and Dublin, CA, we offer lip lift surgery, implants, injectable fillers, and fat transfers to achieve the fuller lips you desire. Whether you have thin lips that are due to genetics or advanced age, the placement of implants or use of fillers can provide you with gorgeous, natural-looking results. Both men and women often seek the expertise of Harvard trained, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Juris Bunkis to achieve that allure of plump lips. Multiple treatments can be combined to obtain that ideal look and shape you desire. With both surgical and nonsurgical options available, we are convinced you won't have trouble discovering a route that works for you. Say goodbye to thin lips.
Implants in the lips can provide an increase in the lip size with a synthetic material, but the augmentation also can change the softness of the lip. Most surgeons use a silicone implant like PermaLip® that make the lips feel more natural but with added volume, or Advanta Lip that is firmer to the touch.
AlloDerm integrates with the natural tissues and fibers within the lips as tissues harvested from cadavers are injected into small incisions in the lips to create a full, natural appearance and feeling to the lips.
After a patient has had fat removed through liposuction from one part of the body (such as the abdomen, back, or thigh), the plastic surgeon can purify that fat and transfer it to the lips.
Injectable fillers can provide patients with a temporary filling of the lips with collagen, hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, etc. This is a nonsurgical option and if the patient does not like the look of the enhancement, the fullness will fade after several months.
