If long-lasting lip augmentation in Melbourne, Florida is what you are looking for then you should consider AlloDerm or Fat Grafting procedures. When you are interested in a longer lasting lip enhancement, then the AlloDerm graft is a great option. This graft is a piece of skin that has been stripped of its living cells and all that is left is a soft, collagen structure. The collagen is then inserted into the lip where it allows the patient’s own cells to attach and grow, which is what will provide the enhancement. Don’t worry about any incision marks because the graft is placed easily through small, inconspicuous incisions in the corners of your mouth. This way you will achieve a natural look and have the long-term enhancement that you have been wanting.
The fat grafting procedure produces long lasting result in almost all the patients who have tried it. However, it is possible that the body may reabsorb the fat. One of the great benefits of this procedure is that you are using fat from your own body to enhance your lips. It is completely safe because it comes from your own body! In order to complete this procedure, your fat is harvested from another area of the body, most often the abdomen. Then we take the harvested fat, prepare it, and insert it into a needle and then we inject it into your lip.
These are just two of the ways we can help you have the lips that you have always wanted. If you are interested in lip augmentation or any cosmetic surgery in Central Florida, call our office at 321.727.3223 to schedule an appointment. We would love to meet with you and discuss the best treatment options available to you.
