Lip Implants, Lip Enhancement and Enlargement - Indianapolis, IN

Fat TransferIncrease in lip size may be achieved with placement of dermal fillers such as Hyaluronic Acid (Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm).  However, many people are seeking a more permanent means for lip enchancement and augementation.  Lip implant materials have undergone an evolution over the last several decades.  Acellular dermal matrix grafts (Alloderm), Gortex, and Autologous Fat Injections have met some success in acheiving long term enlargement of the upper and lower lips.  In recent years, Silicone Lip Implants have become available and offer a permanant, safe, and effective means of acheiving increase in lip volume and improvement of lip appearance that is long lasting, predictable, and effective.  The major advantage of Lip implants is the reduction or elimination of need for lip volume enhancement with dermal fillers.   This procedure may be done under local anesthesia with a sedative taken by mouth, or with sedation medication given via an IV.  Thus, it can be an office procedure when done by itself, or it can be combined with other facial cosmetic procedures such as Blepharoplasty, Facelift, Browlift, and Autologous Facial Fat Injections.
