For patients who desire full, plump lips, Dr. Stephen Hardy provides lip augmentation at his Missoula, MT, practice using an advanced fat transfer technique. Fat tissue is taken from another part of the body, purified, and then injected into the lips to increase volume. If you wish to remove fat from one area of your body, but also desire shapelier lips, you may be a candidate.
Lip augmentation candidates are in good overall health and have realistic expectations. If you feel unhappy with the look of your lips, either because they are too thin, or because they seem to disappear when you smile, lip augmentation can help.
Meanwhile, it is important that the patient has excess fat tissue that can be transferred to the lips. If you have unwanted fat tissue in the abdomen or another area, but also desire fuller lips, this procedure can help you achieve two goals at once. During your consultation with Dr. Hardy, he will listen as you explain your goals, and help determine the appropriate extent of treatment.
