Lip Augmentation

Our Clinical Practice in Lip Augmentation

In our practice, lip augmentation is done under local anesthesia in our clinic, no hospital stay. However in some cases, it is done under general anesthesia at our affiliated hospital in Phuket when it is performed simultaneously with other major cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentation, liposuction or lipoplasty.

Fuller, plumper lips can be achieved by a variety of lip augmentation techniques. We will help you to select the lip augmentation method that is best for you as the technique chosen will depend on individual patient factors, your goals for the procedure as well as the surgeon’s recommendation

Temporary Lip Enhancement: In lip augmentation, lips may be injected with collagen or with fat transferred from another site in your body. Both liquid collagen and fat are absorbed and repeat treatments are necessary to maintain results.

Permanent Lip Enhancements: There are also surgical methods of lip augmentation. One technique uses dermal fat grafts, with the fat still attached to the deeper layers of skin that are harvested from your own body and transplanted to your lips.

In addition, there are a variety of materials derived from other sources that can be implanted, requiring only tiny incisions for placement in which some of these materials eventually become integrated with your natural tissues.

The Technique: The simplest technique for lip augmentation is injection with fat or collagen. For fat injection, a tiny amount of fat is taken from another area of your body, using a small needle attached to a syringe. There are other natural and synthetic materials that can be injected into the lips to create volume. These substances come from a variety of sources which has its own particular benefits and disadvantages. We can review the current options with you during consultation.
