Lip enhancement is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for men and women in their 20s. That's partly because there are so many ways to plump up your lips, ranging from surgical to non-surgical options. Lip filler, for instance, is a sought-after injectable because it's easy, quick, and risk-free. However, there are other techniques that can boost your pout and give you lush lips. The issue is, should you do it? It's up to you to decide.


Let's start with a discussion of the various methods available to give your lips some juicy, kissable allure. By far, injectable techniques are the most popular. They are likely to cost a bit less than surgical options and you can usually have the treatment done quickly. Visit the office, have the treatment, and then go on about your day.

In the world of lip fillers, you have different options too, although the technique used is mostly the same. Your cosmetic surgeon or aesthetician will inject a filler after studying your lips, their shape and current fullness, and the planes and symmetry of your face. A qualified, skilled doctor will make sure that the fillers will add to your beauty and work with your facial form.

As for the filler used, that will hinge on the surgeon. Fillers such as Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane, and Voluma are the most typical options. You can discuss the pros and cons of each with your plastic surgeon.

You can opt for surgical lip augmentation, as well. Lip implants offer a more permanent solution than lip fillers, which need to be redone every six to eight months. Implants also allow you to choose more volume and fullness. Your lips are initially sterilized, then anesthetized. This is usually a treatment that occurs in the office, so it's fairly swift, too. Recovery time shouldn't last long at all.

Fat grafting is yet another option. As the name implies, the process involves taking fat tissue from another spot on your body and infusing it into your lips. The cosmetic surgeon will harvest fat from around your belly button, purify it, and then inject it to your lips. This procedure is good for five years or more and doesn't tend to take much longer than half an hour.


Once you know your alternatives, we should talk about why you might want to look into lip augmentation in your 20s. Lips are big right now. Look at all the cosmetic lip kits available. They're fantastic, but you may get tired of over-drawing your lip liner to make your lips look fuller. Lush lips are gorgeous, but filling them in with makeup takes a great deal of time, and not everyone has that skill. Lip fillers and other types of augmentation can save time and even money, at least in the long run.

When carried out by a reputable cosmetic surgeon, lip augmentation also looks natural. That can't always be said for over-lined lips. You must consult with your doctor beforehand, though. He or she will help you decide on the most flattering size and shape.

The main reason to consider plumping your pout in your 20s is that it can stave off the signs of aging. As you age, your body simply produces less collagen. That not only causes fine lines and wrinkles to embed themselves more deeply in your skin, but it can also cause your lips to thin out and droop.
