Voluminous and sensual lips are coveted by many, because they're a universal sign of beauty that can enhance one's entire facial appearance. As such, Dr. Sajan offers a variety of highly effective treatments that are designed to create a more attractive mouth.
Benefits of Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation offers patients a number of benefits. In addition to transforming naturally thin lips, the procedure can also restore youthful volume to a mouth that has become affected by the natural aging process. When performed by a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon, the procedure can deliver:
- Enhanced facial appearance
- Improved self-confidence
- A safe and effective way to achieve smooth and plump lips
Your Lip Augmentation Options
As a top plastic surgeon in Seattle, Dr. Sajan offers a number of lip augmentation options to improve this important facial feature. During your initial consultation, he will carefully review all of these approaches with you to help you determine which one is in your best interest:
Permalip implants are soft, silicone implants that deliver long-lasting results. If you choose this option, you can expect a simple procedure that takes about an hour to complete. To begin, Dr. Sajan will make a small incision in the area, before creating a tunnel for the implant. He will then insert a Permalip implant and close the incisions with care to minimize any scarring.
Lip augmentation with fillers
For patients who don't want to have surgery to enhance their lips, dermal fillers offer a terrific alternative. After one 30-minute treatment, you can walk out of Dr. Sajan's Seattle office with fuller and more voluminous lips, no downtime required. The only downside is that the results are not permanent. The filler will eventually break down and be reabsorbed into the body, at which point you'll require a touch-up appointment. However, the results are beautiful and extremely natural-looking while they last.
A fat transfer is an all-natural alternative to dermal fillers. It involves first performing liposuction to remove fat from another area of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen. From there, Dr. Sajan will process the extracted fat and re-inject it into the lips. This is a preferred option for many of our Seattle patients, because it's a low-risk procedure that produces natural and supple results.
If you enhanced your lips with dermal fillers or a fat transfer, you can look forward to a relatively easy recovery period. Though all of our patients in Seattle and surrounding areas will have a unique experience, most are able to return to work within one day. You may experience some swelling and bruising for about a week, depending on the procedure, but these effects shouldn't prevent you from performing your normal daily routine.
Conversely, if you received lip implants, you may face a longer recovery period of about one to two weeks. During this time, bruising and swelling is to be expected, and your lips may feel stiff for several months while the implant adjusts.
