Dr. Camacho-Melo offers effective cosmetic treatment for patients who desire fuller, more sensual lips. Lip enlargement can be performed with implants or with injectable fillers such as Restylane®. Another method involves using liposuction to remove fat from another area on the body and injecting it into the lips.
All of our lip augmentation methods are effective. However, results provided by injectable fillers are not as long lasting as results with implants or fat transfer. The length of the recovery period will also vary depending upon the method chosen. Lip augmentation with Restylane® and other injectable fillers requires little to no downtime at all, while implants require a longer healing period of one to two weeks.
