Are Fillers The Only Lip Augmentation Option?

By | Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers, Fat Transfer, Restylane® SILK | No Comments
Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most popular way to plump the lips. The filler has few risks or side effects and often looks and feels natural. Lip fillers also have an easy reversal option and patients can choose to not refresh their filler. This makes it one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.    Are fillers the only lip augmentation option? The short answer is no. There are other surgical and non-surgical options that can enhance the appearance of your lips. Starting with the non-surgical lip enhancements other than fillers, BOTOX injections can be used to bring out more of the upper lip to treat the appearance of thinness. This treatment–known as a BOTOX lip flip–does not usually affect the bottom lip.    Many regular filler patients tire of routine injections and want to find a more permanent lip augmentation option. For these patients, silicone lip implants can sometimes provide lower maintenance lip augmentation. Lip implants require a larger amount of commitment because the removal process is not as seamless as fillers. For some patients who regularly have fillers or who require larger scale corrections, lip implants may be an option that saves money in the long run. Fat transfer to the lips is another surgical option that can last longer than dermal fillers.    To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.

The Wide Variety Of Fat Transfer Procedures

By | Liposuction, Fat Transfer, Brazilian Butt Lift | No Comments

Fat transfer procedures have revolutionized the cosmetic surgery industry in recent years. While cosmetic surgeons have used fat transfer for over a hundred years to correct major scars and disfigurements, usually from wartime injuries, fat grafting has continued to see advancements as fat harvesting saw improvements. Today, fat grafting, liposuction, and subsequent transfer have become among the most popular body contouring procedures. 

Firstly, like the original uses of the procedure, facial fat transfer can fill in facial hollows, correct acne scarring, and address other facial scarring. Normally, the fat is injected through a small cannula. This can rejuvenate the face for a younger appearance and for reconstructive purposes.

As liposuction saw advancements, fat transfer procedures did also. Fat transfer to the breasts and Brazilian butt lifts are among two of the most popular procedures. During these procedures, Dr. Jonov  harvests fat from one site of the body, often the abdomen or thighs. Then, he transfers it via injection into the butt or breasts. 

Fat can also be used as a filler, adding volume to targeted areas. Sometimes fat harvesting can happen on a smaller scale to fill in the tear troughs, augment the lips, or as cheek filler. There are many options for your fat transfer in Bellevue.
