Lip augmentations have become all the rage! You don't even have to be following pop-culture to know and see popular celebrities showing off their full sexy lips. But are those naturally gifted? In most cases, the answer is no! The reason is simple: inevitably lips lose volume and shape with age.
Wrinkles and thinning lips may be fine for some but many people want a solution to fix this dilemma.
Lip augmentation is designed to provide smoother, fuller and radiant lips. There are a number of ways to address aging and loss of volume in the lips. The Plastic Surgery Institute offers multiple treatments options which all have unique abilities to improve your lips and get the best lip augmentation Rancho Mirage has available to you.
Dermal fillers have become very popular in the past few decades with a constant demand for the products. Some of the most popular dermal fillers can offer more than just facial wrinkles. Restylane and Juvederm along with the new Captique are fillers that we offer here at Ordon-Chopra because it provides tremendous effects when applied to the lips.
Restylane is a non-animal filler made of stabilized hyaluronic acid that can provide fuller lips and reduce the appearance of wrinkles for up to six months.
Juvederm is another hyaluronic acid filler that provides the highest available concentration of the substance for the smoothest enhancement of the lips, also for up to six months.
Captique is the newest hyaluronic product, a soft tissue filler that enhances the lips and has been described as having a more natural appearance. Captique is also non-animal stabilized and has already become a new favorite among patients for its youthful and long lasting results.
Collagen is the chemical naturally produced below the skin that provides volume to the skin and staves off wrinkles.
A collagen treatment involves a series of microinjections that introduce collagen to your lips for a fuller effect. Collagen lip injections last as long as three months and many patients argue that collagen is the second safest and most natural means of lip augmentation after fat transfer.
A fat transfer for injection in the lips requires very little fat and can be taken from a wide range of fatty deposits across your body.
The fat is treated to separate oils and dead cells to create a pure concentration of fat cells that provides the maximum uptake in a patient’s body. The fat transfer is commonly believed to be the most long-term lip augmentation but you may experience lumpiness and more pronounced swelling and bruising until your body accepts the fat.
