Fat transfer to the lips
Fat transfer is not nearly as precise or forgiving as the use of fillers.
If you've never used lip fillers I suggest you start with that.
The amount of fat needed for fat transfer is minuscule in relationship to having liposuction.
That amount of fat can easily be harvested in 15 minutes in office setting.
If the fat transfer is not done well then you can be faced with a lifetime of unnatural results that are almost impossible to correct.

Fat transfer from liposuction
By all means -- you can get fat transferred during your liposuction procedure. Your own fat is the best material for lip augmentation even if a portion of the fat that is injected will be reabsorbed, but with slight over correction, a lasting volume enhancement will be seen. There is a wide variety of dermal fillers and lip implants available for lip augmentation, but a fat transfer using the fat from your liposuction would be an excellent idea. There is generally a low risk of complications associated with lip fillers, which is what this fat transfer would be. The more mild side effects linked to lip fillers include redness, bruising, swelling, minor discomfort, tenderness, and infection. With gentle care, these symptoms can be minimized, and should fade within a few days. I hope that you enjoy the plump, sensuous look from having fuller lips.
