Lip Augmentation Boston
There are a number of different options for lip implants (natural, synthetic, solid or injected) that can be added to provide additional fullness to the lips. The most common implant Dr. Spiegel uses is called a dermal fat graft. This is a mixture of fat, skin and soft tissue. This is a small piece of living tissue that is placed into the lips. Since the implant is made from your own tissue there are fewer allergies, infections, or other reactions to worry about. The results are long lasting and the lips feel completely natural! Many other options are also available ranging from fat grafting, to injectable fillers, to permanent implants.
Lips are typically extremely puffy following these procedures—especially if an implant is placed. However, the majority of swelling is gone quickly.
There are other great non-surgical options including Restylane®, Juvederm® or Versa which are dermal fillers to give you luscious full lips.

I recently had a bullhorn lip lift with a simultaneous dermal fat graft lip augmentation with Dr Spiegel. From start-to-finish the entire experience was excellent. I had been wanting this procedure for a long time as my upper lip was extremely long and I thought it negatively impacted my appearance by dragging down the entire length of my lower face. In meeting with Dr Spiegel I felt very comfortable and confident with him being my surgeon. He is very nice and congenial. I met with a different surgeon last year and his personality was such a turnoff that I wouldn’t let him near me with a scalpel, this was not the case with Dr Spiegel. I had the surgery in his office. On the day of the surgery I was as at ease as possible, everything went smoothly and was pain free. When I returned 7 days later to have my stitches removed, one of his assistants took them out. For follow up, I have the option of coming in as I’m somewhat local or sending photos. I have about 1 more week to go before following up and I’m sure Dr Spiegel will answer any questions or concerns I have without issue. The office staff is excellent, attentive, and friendly. They kept my sister-in-law entertained while she waited for me during my surgery. I would definitely return to Dr Spiegel for a future procedure.
