Lip Dermal Fat Grafting

The lips are an essential element to creating a youthful, stunning smile, pout and even smirk. The shape and plumpness of the lips are created by the fat under the skin, vital to their appearance. Lost fat in the face is common with aging, including the fat in the lips. They can become thinner and flatter with age, losing their youthful appearance. Dr. Rousso is a premier facial plastic surgeon in NYC that offers exceptional cosmetic enhancements for the lips, including the use of lip dermal fat grafting to restore volume and shape.

While there are dermal fillers that can add volume to the lips, these treatments are temporary. With dermal fat grafting, your own fat can be used to restore the plumpness for permanent enhancement to the lips. This procedure requires harvesting a strip of dermis and fat layer from another area on the body to graft under the skin of the lips. This can create the volume of much younger lips that will last and look natural, improving the overall beauty of the lips and mouth.

Permanent Lip Volume Enhancement

Using dermal fat grafting techniques is a delicate and specialized procedure that can offer exceptional results when performed by a surgical artist. Dr. Rousso has spent many years building a reputation as one of the leading facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in New York City. He has intricate knowledge of utilizing the most advanced techniques and technology in plastic surgery. This knowledge is advantageous to those desiring lip enhancements that look natural and balanced, including fat grafting for permanent results.

If you have noticed lost volume in your lips over the years and want to rejuvenate their fullness for a more youthful appearance, dermal fat grafting may be the right option.
