What happens under the Mistletoe stays under the Mistletoe

With holiday parties and family events to attend, this is the time of year to dress up and be seen. That’s why many women look into refreshing their appearance with lip augmentation. Atlanta residents can enhance their lips with this small procedure that can make you look years younger.

Lips are full of collagen and after age 40 our bodies produce less collagen and our lips get thinner. Full, luscious lips are youthful, sexy, and desirable. For these reasons, women are seeking lip augmentation to revitalize their appearance.

There are several ways of achieving the beautiful fullness, including injections with fillers, fat injections, or a lip implant. All of these methods have advantages and disadvantages, and some may better than others depending on a patient’s needs.

Restylane® or Juvederm® for temporary lip enhancement, gives a good result and lasts about 6-9 months. Fat injections are more permanent and can give fullness with a longer lasting result. Lip implants, on the other hand, are permanent and more expensive initially, but do not require the maintenance of injections.

If you have thin lips or lips that have thinned over time and have been considering a lip procedure, you should learn as much as possible about the options available to you. You should prepare for your consultation with your plastic surgeon by researching the procedure.
