Lip collagen

Cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity and one of the leading treatments is lip augmentation.  This procedure is performed to increase the size of one’s lips. You have the option to choose longer lasting or even permanent lip implants or short term lip collagen or fat injections.  Lip collagen will usually last between 3 and 6 months.

Lip collagen injections replace the collagen that you have lost naturally over time as you get older.  With these injections, lip tissue is puffed up which makes the lines and wrinkles on your lips disappear. Your lips will appear fuller and more lush than before the injections.  Again, this look can last up to 6 months and is not permanent.

One of the worst side effects of lip collagen can be an allergic reaction.  Before going ahead with the procedure, make sure that you consult your doctor first.  Speak to the plastic surgeon about any current allergies you have to ensure you are a safe candidate for this procedure.  Use a qualified plastic surgeon for best results.
