For your lip augmentation at our office, you will have several options, including fat transfer injections and injections of fillers like Restylane Silk and Juvederm. These injections work to plump the lips through the addition of volume to the skin. Which technique is right for you?

Fat transfer involves the harvesting of fat cells from an area of the patient’s body that has excess fatty tissue. Once these cells are carefully removed, they can be purified and then grafted through injection into key areas of the lips. This option will last longer than synthetic injectable fillers.

Synthetic hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane Silk and Juvederm provide results that last about one to two years, and they have the benefit of being reversible. If a patient is unhappy with their results, they can have them modified as needed.

Contact us to set up a consultation regarding lip augmentation and your options. Dr. Yoash Enzer, a board-certified surgeon and Rhode Island’s top cosmetic and laser specialist, will explain the techniques in greater detail and offer a recommendation.
