About Lip Augmentation
If you’re bothered by the appearance of your naturally thin lips or your lips have lost volume or developed vertical wrinkles as you’ve aged, you may be a candidate for lip injections. This cosmetic solution can also be used to balance uneven lips, improve the shape and structure of your lips and reduce the amount of gum that shows when you smile. Shapelier lips can complement your other facial features, better frame your smile, boost your confidence and help you look and feel more youthful.
During your initial consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will talk with you about your desired look and which lip augmentation procedure may be right for you. Each lip enhancement option offers the same end result but the process and duration varies. If this is your first lip augmentation, you may want to try a product with temporary results to see how you like the change. Your next lip injection can be modified to better suit your preferences depending on your feedback.
We offer injectable lip injection options, including collagen, JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Zyderm®, Zyplast®, COSMODERM®, Hylaform® and silicone oil. Each of these lip fillers can be used to replenish and enhance your lips.
We also offer fat transfer lip augmentation using your own natural fat collected from a donor site on your body. Fat transfer is a procedure that can offer very natural-looking lip enhancement results because it uses natural tissue. Your cosmetic surgeon can talk in detail with you about which lip augmentation option can help you achieve your ideal results.
For more comprehensive lip enhancement, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend combining your lip augmentation with laser treatments to stimulate the production of collagen to tighten your skin and lessen the appearance of fine lines along the edges of your lips.
Your Lip Augmentation Procedure
Lip augmentation is generally a quick procedure that can be performed in our office. If you opt for fat transfer lip injections, the procedure may run a bit longer as your cosmetic surgeon uses liposuction to collect the fat from another area, then purifies the fat before injecting it into your lips.
Before beginning the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon may apply a topical or local numbing agent to enhance your comfort. Then, following the marked injection sites, your cosmetic surgeon will use a very fine needle to inject either lip fillers or fat into your lips, carefully controlling the volume to ensure optimal results. Additional treatments may be needed to touch up or complete your look.
Your Recovery & Results
Your lips should be plumper immediately and you will likely experience little to no down time as you recover. Once your lip augmentation procedure is finished, you should be able to resume your normal activities the same day. Your lips may be a bit swollen for a few hours. Gently holding ice packs against your lips can help control the swelling. Your cosmetic surgeon may recommend that you avoid wearing lipstick or other lip products for the first few hours.
Your recovery period may be slightly longer if you combine your lip enhancement with laser treatments. For the best results, keep the treated area moist for the first week or two, as this is when most of the healing takes place.
