Lip Augmentation

Designed for natural results, this procedure uses autologous graft to add long-lasting volume, shape and structure to the lips with natural tissue. As an alternative to dermal fillers, the graft is first harvested from your body under local anaesthetic before being purified to safely insert into the lips.

About

Lip augmentation with autologous graft, also known as fat transfer to the lips or lip augmentation with autologous fat grafting, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using the patient's own fat to enhance the size and shape of the lips.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The first step in a lip augmentation with autologous graft procedure is to select a suitable donor site from which to harvest the fat. Common donor sites include the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The patient and surgeon will discuss and determine the best donor site based on the patient's anatomy, desired outcome, and availability of sufficient fat.

The surgeon will then perform liposuction to harvest the fat from the selected donor site. Liposuction involves making small incisions and using a cannula, a thin tube-like instrument, to remove the excess fat through gentle suction. The harvested fat is typically processed to purify and prepare it for transfer to the lips.

Once the fat has been harvested and processed, the surgeon will carefully inject the purified fat into the lips using small, strategically placed injections. The fat is injected in small amounts to achieve the desired shape and volume of the lips. The surgeon will carefully sculpt and shape the injected fat to create a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing result.
