Perfecting your pout: Lip augmentation with fat implants and fillers in Plano
Dr. Patrick Obasi transforms smiles using a special technique – lip augmentation with fat implants and fillers. Plano area patients trust Noble Cosmetic Surgery for the highest level of patient care and beautiful outcomes.
Fuller lips with fat implants
Fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that supplements lips with fat. It is taken from areas with excess, such as abdomen or thighs, with a liposuction technique. Cells are processes to thin the substance and remove impurities, then injected into precise points to shape lips and add fullness.
Most of the fat cells will graft – remain living tissue – so the change is long-lasting. Because the fat is natural and autologous (comes from your own body), the procedure is safe, with virtually no risk of allergic reaction.
Fillers for dramatic distinction
Dr. Obasi also utilizes injectable dermal fillers to augment lips. It can be performed alone or in combination with fat implants.
Fillers are formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA) in a gel base. HA is found naturally in the human body. It attracts many times its own weight in water, so fillers add immediate volume, and continue to improve for several months.
Other benefits of lip augmentation with fillers include:
- Volume – Dr. Obasi skillfully manipulates the amount of filler injected, for predictable results.
- Gradual change – Injections can be scheduled over a period of time until you reach the desired level of augmentation.
- Low risk of side effects – In skilled hands, injectables are safe and have minimal side effects. You may have mild bruising or swelling at injection sites, but it resolves quickly.
- Comfort – Fillers are infused with lidocaine.
Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, and the feature they are most likely to remember. Full, well-defined lips make a great first impression. Call (214) 974-4411 to schedule a consultation.
