Preparing for Lip Enhancement
Dr. Larsen performs lip enhancement both as a non-surgical procedure with fillers and by using fat transfer for a natural lip augmentation. Other plastic surgeons use silicone implants, which can result in an unnatural appearance of the lips.
During your consultation, Dr. Larsen will listen to your goals and expectations to help determine the best lip enhancement method for you. The two of you will also discuss the size you want for your lips as well as how to maintain a more natural appearance.
With the fat transfer method, Dr. Larsen will perform your procedure under either local or general anesthesia. The necessary fat cells will be grafted from another area of the body using minimal liposuction. The harvested fat cells are then prepared for injection and then used to enhance your lips to your goal size. With the filler method, Dr. Larsen will use non-surgical dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, to provide you with your desired outcome.
Both methods Dr. Larsen uses for lip enhancement have provided many patients with beautiful, natural-looking results.

There is very little to no recovery time required following your lip enhancement. If your lip enhancement was performed using fillers, you should be able to return to your daily routine fairly quickly. Fat transfer lip enhancement may require a few days of rest depending on where the fat cells were grafted from.
Your lips may feel a bit tight or sore immediately following your treatment and it is normal that at first they look slightly larger than you expected. As your body absorbs some of the injected fat or filler, your final results will begin to show.
Patients who have undergone a lip enhancement procedure at Buckhead Plastic Surgery are often thrilled with their results. By achieving a natural-looking fullness of the lips, you will likely feel more confident about your overall appearance and smile more often.

Am I a good candidate for lip enhancement?Naveed2019-09-16T15:03:01-04:00
There are many options for lip enhancement procedures. Non-Surgical Options include dermal fillers like Juvéderm. Where the surgical option would include a fat injection. Both options produce natural-looking results with minimal recovery time.
How does the dermal injection method work?Naveed2019-09-16T15:06:08-04:00
One of the master injections on our Lux Med Spa team will inject your lips with a filler like Juvéderm which offers a temporary lip enhancement at an affordable cost. Dermal fillers are known to produce extremely natural looking results. They can boost lip volume, enhance the shape and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The actual injections only takes 15-20 minutes.
There is little to no downtime after the procedure, and most patients can return to work the same day. Final results are visible within 2 weeks of the initial injection, and results can last between 4 and 12 months depending on your specific body chemistry and the amount of product used.
Side effects are rare and mild and include things like temporary bruising at the injection site. The biggest consideration for patients considering this procedure is ongoing maintenance. Because the results are temporary, additional treatments will need to be scheduled to maintain the results.
How does fat transfer lip augmentation work?Naveed2019-09-16T15:07:20-04:00
The fat transfer lip augmentation is done under general or local anesthesia. Dr. Larsen will remove a small amount of fat from another part of your body with minimally invasive liposuction treatment. Then those fat cells are then injected into the tissue of your lips until the desired fullness is achieved.
There are many benefits to this procedure, and the results can last for years. Most patients agree that their lips look and feel natural. The chance of an allergic reaction is almost non-existent. No incisions are needed in the lips. However this procedure does require a surgical component and although minimal, all surgeries have associated risks. Most patients experience little to no difficulty in the recovery from this procedure and can expect to return to work within a few days. Results will be visible right away but will be more accurate after a few weeks.
What is lip enhancement recovery like?Naveed2019-09-16T15:08:11-04:00
Depending on which method you used, there is little to no recovery time with lip enhancement procedures. With a dermal injection, most patients can return to their normal activities within the same day. However, if you receive a fat transfer enhancement, you might require a few days of rest before returning to normal activities. This is because of the surgical component, and recovery is largely dependent on where the fat cells are grafted from.
Immediately following your procedure you’re lips will look slightly plumper then the actual result will be. Within a few days, your body will absorb a bit of the fat or filler injected and your actual results will be visible. It’s normal to feel tender in the area where you received the injection. Most patients report a feeling of tightness across their lips.
Are the results permanent?Naveed2019-09-16T15:08:55-04:00
The results will be dependent on both your specific body chemistry and the procedure you elected to have. If you chose a dermal injection, results can be expected to last 4-12 months and the procedure will need to be repeated to maintain optimal results. If you chose the fat transfer method the results can last for years. However, no cosmetic procedure can fully stop the aging process. The best way to slow the aging process is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, avoid too much sun exposure, don’t smoke, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
