If you take a second to research which cosmetic procedures are the hottest and trendiest right now, we are absolutely certain that your search will end with lip augmentation being the most popular. The duck pout seems so ubiquitous on social media that many people around the world are deciding that they don’t have to settle with what they have naturally to pull off that pose. Instead are exploring their options for the various fillers and solutions that can help to give them the large, voluptuous lips that they dream of having! After all, why settle for less when the best is so readily available? With this in mind, here is some information about the most common types of lip augmentation in Los Angeles.
Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid injections that are designed to plump up your lips, using a material that is naturally produced by your body in the first place. This makes hyaluronic acid a safe solution to be injected into the lips, and it is very well tolerated by the body which massively reduces the risk of any adverse reactions or rejections. Dermal fillers are commonly injected in the office and only take a few minutes. The treatment does not require any downtime, but you may feel tenderness at the injection site for a few days.
This is another method of lip plumping that is considered to be ‘natural’. The fat used in the injection process has actually been harvested from another area of your own body. The results from fat injection actually last a lot longer than the results from dermal fillers (up to several years longer for some), and again it is a treatment that is well tolerated by the body due to the fact that the solution being injected has come from your own body in the first place. No incisions are needed in order to be able complete all the steps in a fat injection procedure.
Lip implants are a semi-permanent option that will last for a number of years. They are made from a series of biodegradable ingredients along with soft silicone rubber. The implants are inserted into the lips via two small incisions that are made by the surgeon, but due to the clever positioning of the cuts, no visible scars are left on the lip area. Lip implant procedures tend to take an average of 30 minutes, and you will require between 1 and 3 days of recovery downtime depending on how well your body responds and how quickly you start to feel better. Never more than a week.
