What Permanent Lip Augmentation Options Are Available?

The human body is indeed beautiful in form and function. That being said, many people believe rightly that there is much that can be done to improve on nature. To this end, many people opt for cosmetic surgery to do just that .

One of the hottest procedures in recent times is lip augmentation. This is a reasonably simple procedure that can quickly and easily improve the look, feel, and even the texture of just about anyone’s lips. Unfortunately, many contemporary lip augmentation procedures are temporary in nature, and the benefits disappear over time .

The good news is permanent lip augmentation procedures do exist.


Modern day Western cultures put a premium on beauty and physical appearance. The lips are often a focal point for just this kind of scrutiny, and for this reason many women are making it a priority to do whatever they can to upgrade the appearance of their lips.

Lip augmentations are simple plastic surgery procedures that have the goal of firming, plumping, lifting, and removing signs of aging from the lips and around the mouth.


There are many temporary lip augmentation options available on the market, and some of these include injections with products such as Juvederm.

While such treatments have proven to be somewhat popular, in many cases the effects last for only months, after which new treatments must be undertaken. Because of this, temporary lip augmentation treatments have begun to fall out of favor.


As was mentioned earlier, permanent lip augmentation is all the rage in recent times. Permanent lip augmentation options include the following:

Permanent lip implants.

The first kind of implant that will be discussed are silicone implants. These kinds of implants are capable of being left in the lips permanently, but also offer people the option of having them removed if the results are not what was initially desired.

One of the main benefits of this kind of lip augmentation is the fact that the silicone implants are not absorbed the way that fat transfers are, and this offers much more consistent results.

*Fat transfers

Even though fat transfers are sometimes considered to be temporary solutions, they do last long enough that they can be considered a decent middle-of-the-road option. Fat transfers simply involve taking fat from one area of the body such as the abdomen or thighs, and then injecting it into the lips.

Fat transfer lip augmentation of this kind has been known to last many years. This procedure is a great option for people who don’t like the idea of injecting foreign substances into their lips.

If you are one of the perfectionists that insist on looking their best all the time you may be a good candidate for a permanent lip augmentation procedure. People living in New York City or Scarsdale are encouraged to give Dr. Robert M. Schwartz a call.

Dr. Schwartz and his skilled colleagues have years of experience performing procedures of this kind.
