People who are interested in having long lasting results to improve facial grooves and deep creases, or want to have fuller lips can now use their own skin and fat as permanent filler and enhancements.
A small amount of skin and fat (attached to it) can easily be harvested from the lower abdomen through a small incision in the bikini line. After removal of the top layer, (de-epithelialization) rolls of skin-fat strips can be tailored to the form of recipient areas, such as lips and grooves between cheeks and upper lip.
This minimally invasive procedure is performed as outpatient, without the need for administration of general anesthesia. The recovery is quick and relatively painless. Since incisions are very small and are placed inside the lips, they are not conspicuous and after weeks, cannot be detectable.
Dr. Mahjouri recommends this innovative procedure to patients that desire moderate or significant lip enhancement.
