Frequently asked questions about lip enhancement
Here are a number of frequently asked questions about lip enhancement in Charlotte NC, along with the answers.
I’d like my lips to be just a little bit fuller, but I’m not ready to commit to a big change in my appearance. Is there any way I can have a small, temporary improvement made?
As a matter of fact, there is. A filler injection can make a small but noticeable change in the contour of your lips. Common fillers include hyaluronic acid products like Restylane, or plain old human body fat. There will be some swelling, but it will wear off in a few days.
I want my lips to be fuller and stay fuller — I don’t want to have to keep going back for more surgery. Is there a way to get a permanent augmentation?
Absolutely. A dermal allograft involves the transplanting of dermal collagen from a donor’s skin into your own lips. Donors are carefully screened for health, and the actual skin cells and their DNA are removed beforehand, so there’s no danger of rejection — one person’s collagen is just like another’s.
My lower lip is already nice and full, but my upper lip is too narrow. Does the surgeon work on just one lip?
It sounds like what you really need is a lip lift. This is a surgical procedure performed on the upper lip that brings it out a little more, making it look fuller without adding anything to it.
