Fat transfer is an excellent way to permanently and naturally add volume to the lips.
Those who already possess ideally shaped lips but desire a bit more plumpness may only need added lip volume. Our practice offers both temporary (injectable filler) and permanent (fat transfer) augmentation.
Filler - Lip Voluming
Dr. Haworth personally performs all of his own filler injections, however The Beverly Hills Skin Lab, Pawnta Abrahimi is an expert aesthetic practitioner in her own right, and is able to cater to the needs of most patients at an affordable price.
A youthful face is accentuated by convexities that reflect light while an aging one is marked by concavities that create dark shadows. I often liken rejuvenating a face to shadow chasing.
There are basically two types of fillers: permanent and temporary. Injectable fillers can be utilized to augment cheek and jawbones, smooth out wrinkles, fill out hollows, plump up lips, enhance noses, rejuvenate hands and smooth out irregularities, et cetera.
The soft tissue of the face consisting of skin, subcutaneous fat, muscle, fascia, etc. can be likened to a multilevel sandwich of bread, lettuce, tomato, meat, cheese, etc. Fillers are semi liquid/gel substances that can be strategically injected into the various layers of the facial soft tissue in order to diminish aging folds, wrinkles and sagging as well as to augment cheekbones, jawbones, brows and nose, among other areas.
As with any filler injection, swelling, bruising, puffiness and bleeding may occur. The side effects are completely normal and typically go away within a few days.
One should consider filler injection similar to a surgical procedure in that bruising can be a side effect which can't be minimized by eschewing aspirin, aspirin containing products and any other substances that may promote bleeding.
We have a comprehensive list of such substances which we can provide to our patients prior to the scheduled injection procedure.
