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.
