Lip Augmentation Austin
Lip augmentation has become very popular over the past few years. When lip augmentations are done correctly they can add a very youthful, attractive appearance to the face. One of the common complaints of lip injections is that they tend to go away faster then patients would like.
Fat is a great alternative to fillers as it is going to last much longer. The benefit of the fat is that it is going to last for years to come rather than the six to nine months that the majority of fillers last. I would not say that they will replace fillers as fillers and fat all have their place. Fillers are a great start for patients so that they can get feel for the rejuvenation that they can expect from adding volume. Also fillers are a great quick fix as they can be done in the office in as little as ten minutes.
