Patients across the U.S. are in a frenzy to have full, kissable lips, and those in Virginia Beach are of no exception! Lip augmentation has skyrocketed in popularity, with celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Angelina Jolie as inspiration. In fact, last year lip augmentation was the second-fastest growing procedure in the U.S. since 2000, with 9.2 million lip procedures done!
Lip augmentation also seems to be a popular procedure since the fillers used to achieve plumper lips are often reversible, and are usually not permanent. This allows patients to achieve a different look, with no strings attached. With most injectable fillers not lasting over a year, patients have flexibility when it comes to how long they want to have these fuller lips.
Lip Augmentations are not only great for adding plumpness to young lips, they can also define aging lips that have lost their volume.
At Associates in Plastic Surgery, we offer two options for lip augmentation: injectable fillers and perioral fat grafts. Injectable fillers include Juvederm and Restylane, and can augment the shape and fullness of both the upper and lower lips. Fillers can be injected under local anesthesia, with little to no downtime. Fillers are temporary, lasting between six months to one year. Perioral fat grafts can also add volume to the lips, with small amounts of the patient’s own fat being injected into the lips. Patients may have results that can last much longer than injectable fillers.
