Lip Augmentation – Why Dermal Fillers Are Best.

In today’s society, we all want fuller, plumper lips, which are made possible by getting a lip augmentation.

Lip augmentation has received a great deal of attention over the last few years, seeing a 35% increase since the millennium. Even though this procedure has increased in popularity, most of the feedback has been negative. This is largely due to the publicized cases where the lips are overfilled or a misunderstanding of what makes an attractive lip. Collagen and fat transfer were the most common procedures for lip augmentation for many years; however, the evolution of dermal fillers has created newer, safer and longer lasting solutions.


Dermal fillers have become the most commonly used method for lip augmentation and there are many types of fillers that are used around the mouth and for lips. However, aesthetic experts have found that hyaluronic acid fillers are the better option for lip enhancement of all dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance that is found in the body and dermal fillers made of HA have several benefits.

Volume Control
The doctor can control the amount of substance injected to create optimal results.

Treatment Pace
It is possible to create the desired results gradually, making separate appointments to achieve the best results.

Bumps Dissolve Away
With the movement of lips, it is possible for lumps and bumps to form. HA fillers dissolve very easily.

Minimal Bruising
HA fillers are known to cause less bruising and swelling when injected into lips.

Lasting Results
The results of using HA dermal fillers last much longer than collagen and other dermal fillers.

Lower Risk of Allergic Reactions
Since HA is a naturally occurring substance our bodies are less likely to produce an allergic reaction to the filler solution.

HA filler treatments have one major benefit that no other injectable does, which is that using a solution called hyaluronidase, the treatment is reversible.

Results Last
HA filler results last around 6 to 8 months

HA dermal fillers are the most popular soft tissue filler of all the facial rejuvenation options available. Fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most common injectable used for lip augmentations because they have become the most popular solutions for increasing volume. Juvederm is known for its smooth-gel solution that fills lips to create soft, but also voluptuous, fuller lips. Restylane is a great option for lip augmentation because it can also be used to reverse the sad mouth corner, this makes your upper lip more balanced.

There are a few different reasons why dermal fillers are better than the other options, such as, collagen and fat transfer. Collagen is a dermal filler, however, there are a few negative aspects of using collagen for lips:

  • It only lasts for 3 to 4 months
  • There is a chance that your skin will have an allergic reaction to collagen
The other option that is most common for lip augmentation is fat transfer, even though the results of fat transfer for lip augmentation is permanent, there are some cons:
  • This treatment costs more than 3 times collagen and dermal fillers
  • The results vary and there are greater risks due to the fat extraction process
It is a great idea to understand procedures; however, most facial plastic surgeons will recommend that you discuss your treatment options for a lip augmentation procedure with your doctor or an experienced facial plastic surgeon near you.
