Lip Augmentation in Houston, League City, Pearland Texas
Lip augmentation or lip enhancement is a group of various plastic surgery procedures to enhance the shape or size of the lips. A lip augmentation in Houston is beneficial to someone who either has thin lips, or would just enjoy an increase in the size of the lips or the definition of the lip borders.
The first thing to decide is exactly what you would like changed with the lips. Is the pink portion of the lips (the vermillion) too thin? Would you want a more defined border of the lips? How long-lasting would you like the results to be and do you want a surgical procedure or an injection? The answers to these questions will determine the best cosmetic surgery procedure for your lip augmentation. Dr. Wiener performs lip augmentation to patients all over Houston and the surrounding areas of Pearland and League City, Texas. Lip augmentation patients choose Dr. Wiener for his extensive knowledge and cutting edge surgical techniques.
Types of Lip Augmentation in Houston
The major methods for lip augmentation in Houston are Juvederm injection, fat injection, and dermal fat graft. Dr. Wiener does not perform fat injection into the lips because of lumpiness and inconsistent long-lasting results. He also does not place foreign material such as Gore-tex because of risk of infection or ability to feel the implant. His main method therefore is Juvederm injection. The results of both of these are different in what they enhance and how long they last.
Juvederm injections are a fairly easy process in which Dr. Wiener injects hyaluronic acid as a filler material. The results last on average 6-12 months. The advantage of Juvederm is that it can be very precisely placed and can be used to enhance the border of the lips. It can also increase the “show” of the pink portion of the lips.
These procedures can improve the aesthetic appearance of the lips and give a fuller, more youthful appearance.
