Med Spa: Which Lip Augmentation passes the Kiss test?

Soft, full, natural looking and feeling lips is possible with lip augmentation. Regardless of lip enhancement method, it must pass the Kiss test. Your partner should not notice an unnatural texture to your lips after augmentation.

Both Juvederm and Restylane are clear gels that are given in the office with local anesthesia and last several months. These injectable fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, a natural material found in the dermis.

Both Juvederm and Restylane are soft to touch and pass the Kiss test. You should not look like a porn star, unless you have large volumes injected into the lips. Most plastic surgeons and dermatologist will only inject the appropriate amount.

Your own fat injected into the lips is another alternative. Fat transfer, a natural alternative to other injectables, lasts for several months. Some patients may experience a little lumpiness with this method, although most cosmetic patients are very happy.

Speak to your cosmetic specialist to find which lip augmentation is appropriate for you.
