Many people find that they just don’t have the fullness that they would like to see on their lips. There are a few things you can do at home to give your lips more volume, but these methods are largely ineffective and short-lived. You can try to create an illusion of the lips you would like to see with cosmetics, but it’s not the same as having the real thing. If you would like to effectively increase the volume of your lips, lip injections using a fat transfer may be the right course of action for you.
How Can a Fat Transfer Transform Your Lips?
A fat transfer involves taking fat from one part of your body and injecting it somewhere else. Many patients are tapping into the potential of their excess fat to enhance their breasts or their buttocks. The same method used to enhance these areas can also be used to enhance your lips. Dr. Bull will pinpoint an area on your body where fat can be spared. Common sources for fat transfer include the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The fat taken from these areas must be removed through liposuction and purified. After these steps are completed, the purified fat will be injected into your lips to give you the amount of fullness you would like to see.
Why Go with a Fat Transfer for Lip Enhancement?
Among the many options available for lip enhancement, lip injections via a fat transfer remain a popular choice. You can go with implants that are inserted into your lips, but this requires surgery. You can also choose from a variety of dermal fillers, but these carry the risk of reacting adversely with your body. If you would prefer enhancing your lips with a method that requires neither surgery nor the injection of foreign substances, a fat transfer could be ideal for you. Your lips will feel and look natural when the procedure is done. Because you are using a substance from your own body, you are much less likely to have an allergic reaction. If you are seriously considering a fat transfer to augment your lips, you will need to have enough excess fat for the procedure.
