Plump, luscious lips are a nearly universally attractive attribute. But as you age, your once beautiful lips may lose their some of their natural fullness. This can leave you looking and feeling much older than you actually are.
At Cosmetic and Surgical Arts Center Seattle/Bellevue WA, we want to help you look and feel your absolute best. That’s why we offer a range of lip enhancement treatments that cater to a variety of cosmetic goals.
One of the most popular methods of lip augmentation, the results of injectable fillers are instantaneous. We offer some of the most trusted brands of injectable fillers, including Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm.
Injectable fillers and administered through ultrafine needles, and typically take 30 minutes or less. The only downside to injectable filler use is that its results are not permanent; they typically last somewhere between 6 and 12 months. Treatments will need to be received periodically to maintain results.
Alloderm is a method of lip augmentation that uses natural body tissue. Alloderm Grafting is a surgical procedure that can be performed under a local anesthetic. If performed correctly, the results of an Alloderm Grafting treatment can last for decades.
A lip implant procedure is much simpler than you might expect: it can be done in under an hour! Another surgical procedure, the results of lip implants are either permanent or semi-permanent and immediate.
Which Method is Best for You?
The right lip augmentation method for you will meet your cosmetic goals, as well be compatible with your desired price range and overall health. Dr. Dan Wortham will take all of these factors into account to help you select the best treatment method for you.
As a general rule, injectable fillers are best for patients who have never received any lip augmentation, or only want to temporarily augment their lips. This way, they can get an idea of what the results of a more permanent surgery would look like, and decide if a permanent lip augmentation procedure is right for them. Patients who have already received injectable filler treatments and are looking to achieve longer-lasting results would do better to undergo either an Alloderm Graft or lip implant.
