Lip enhancement surgery in Charlotte highly successful

Lip enhancement surgery in Charlotte is a popular and generally successful procedure. According to, 92% of those who get lip augmentation and 85% of those who get lift lips say the operations are worth it. The key is an experienced facial plastic surgeon who knows exactly what procedure you need.

If the kind of lip enhancement in Charlotte you need involves making your lips slightly fuller, this can be done simply by injecting them with a filler, like body fat or hyaluronic acid products. For more improvement, the surgeon may use a dermal allograft, in which dermal collagen from a donor is transplanted into your lips. It takes longer to recover from this, but the good news is that a dermal allograft is permanent — the collagen easily becomes a part of your own tissue. It can even come from your own skin if you are getting a face lift at the same time.

A lip lift, unlike augmentation, adds no volume to the lips. It balances the upper and lower lips in cases where the upper lip is a little too narrow. To do this, the surgeon adjusts the shape of the upper lip to tighten it and bring it out a little more. This can usually be done in the office of the surgeon, with only a little swelling and bruising visible. The sutures should be taken out in five or six days, and it will then be safe to put on lipstick again.
