Our Albuquerque practice also offers exceptional lip augmentation treatment that can create a younger-looking appearance. Lip augmentation is a simple and quick treatment option that allows a patient with thin or small lips to enjoy a voluptuous and more sensual pout. Dr. Gallegos can perform lip augmentation through fat transfer or the injection of dermal fillers such as Restylane® or Perlane®. These methods are relatively safe, with a very small risk of causing side effects, and result in plumper lips that look and feel natural.
Lip Augmentation Procedure
During the lip augmentation procedure, Dr. Gallegos uses a small needle to inject into the lips either a dermal filler or fat cells gathered from another area on the body through liposuction. The injections create noticeably fuller lips that last for up to six months with dermal fillers or one year with fat transfer.
Results from Lip Augmentation
Patients in the Albuquerque area who receive lip augmentation treatment are generally pleased with the sensual and natural-looking results. Lip augmentation can help make short, thin, disproportionate, and aging lips look younger and more appealing. Lip augmentation requires very little downtime for recovery, and most patients can return to their normal routines the same day.
