Lip Lipofilling with Fat Grafting - Lip Augmentation With Your Own Fat - Cosmetic Surgery in Montreal
Lips lipofilling (injections of your own fat) is a surgical procedure to correct sagging, wrinkles, lack of volume or unequal lips due to aging or other factors.
You can decide for a lip lipofilling for different reasons in order to obtain:
- luscious lips
- more sensual lips
- lasting results
- the loss of volume correction
- injections of you own fat, no implants
Two interventions in cosmetic surgery, liposuction and fat injection, are strategically applied for lip lipofilling.
The liposuction is performed from specific parts of the body where fat deposits are localised, using a hollow metal surgical instrument called a cannula. The fat can be obtained from different parts of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, back and other places through small incisions.
Once the unwanted fat is extracted, it is concentrated. The adipose tissue (fat) is separated from other body tissues and then purified. The processed fat is then re-injected to the lips by multiple micro-injections to obtain the best results.
The best candidates for a lip lipofilling (augmentation using fat grafting) are people:
- in good health
- having realistic expectations about what this surgery can accomplish
- emotionally well-balanced
- having excess weight or a sufficient amount of localized fat
- who choose lip augmentation using their own fat
One option would be not to use a lipofilling lips.
There are other options such as lip augmentation with autogenous graft (organic tissues) or silicone implants.
An additional volume to the lips can be obtained with a non-surgical procedure as fillers injections (hyaluronic acid).
