Women across the globe envy the look of luscious lips. We see these perfectly looking pouts flashed at us on television, in magazines, and even around where we live. Full lips are thought to be beautiful, sexy, and a symbol of youth.
Patients come into our boutique plastic surgery office in Upper East Manhattan seeking luscious lips. Whether you desire fuller lips, a lip lift, or a complete lip augmentation, Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, New York City’s renowned certified-plastic surgeon, can provide you with stunning results.
Let us take a look at the path to luscious lips.
A fat transfer utilizes existing body fat from elsewhere on your body, transferring the fat to your lips for a lip augmentation. Typically, fat is harvested from either the abdomen or thigh area. The tissue is thoroughly processed to purify and extract the fat tissue. The fat cells are then carefully and precisely injected into the lips to achieve a fuller look.
The procedure itself may take up to an hour, and you can expect to see results within several months. Although a fat transfer is long-lasting, fat resorption may occur, meaning you could end up needing repeat treatments later on.
Fillers have become a popular choice for lip enhancement. Patients often side with dermal fillers to achieve luscious lips because results are immediate. The fillers are strategically injected into areas of the lip and around the mouth to achieve a fuller look, symmetry, and decrease fine lines and wrinkles. Results typically last an average of six months and will require touch-up treatments to maintain your new luscious lips.
You may have heard of a lip lift or even lip implants. While these procedures will provide more long-term results, they require more downtime since both are surgical procedures. In most cases, Dr. Preminger can help you achieve the luscious lips that you desire by simply using a fat transfer or dermal fillers. If, however, you would like to explore other options, please discuss this with Dr. Preminger during your consultation. Always consult a board-certified plastic surgeon before receiving any type of cosmetic treatments, even dermal fillers.
Deciding which cosmetic treatment that is right for you can be difficult. You may already have your mind set on a certain procedure, but the best approach is to seek a consultation with NYC board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Preminger, for a personalized consultation. She will listen to your needs, assess your health, and your goals for improving your looks. Together, you can both decide which procedure will be best for you. Be sure to weigh the pros and cons of each choice before making your decision.
