What is Lip Augmentation?
A lip augmentation procedure at Saltz Plastic Surgery in Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah, makes the lips appear fuller and plumper, and can also reduce the fine wrinkles found around the mouth. There are a variety of fillers that can be injected into your lips — collagen, your own fat, or various dermal fillers.
Disadvantages of Collagen & Fat Injection for Lip Injections
- Collagen formerly was the most popular lip augmentation filler but is used less today because its effects aren’t as long-lasting.
- Fat injection, using the fat that is taken through liposuction from another part of the patient’s body, purified and then re-injected into the lips is also decreasing in popularity because its results are inconsistent.
