Lip Augmentation

If you think that your lips are too thin, too big, or you want them to be better proportioned, you are not alone.

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your lips and want to change their size, shape, or fullness, there are numerous procedures available that can help you get the appearance you want. Dr. Quatela, Dr. Koenig, Dr. Lee, Dr. Amalfi, and Dr. Montague use dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm® injections to help enhance the lips and make them more attractive. Dr. Quatela, Dr. Lee, and Dr. Montague also perform lip augmentation using dermal fat grafts.

Lip reduction and augmentation procedures can be done with the goal of giving you a more youthful appearance and eliminating that “tired” look, all while keeping your unique facial features looking natural. By taking a look at some of our before and after photos, you can get a better understanding of what can be accomplished. If you are concerned about the corners of your mouth, a mid-face lift or facelift will make the “laugh lines” rise from their current position. This will give you a better contour around the jowls.

When you request an initial consultation for lip enhancement, your surgeon will make an evaluation of your soft and bony tissues, as well as look at your neck and head. By doing this assessment, he or she can get a clearer picture of what can be accomplished by doing lip enhancement surgery.

With any type of plastic surgery, a complete assessment of your health will be made and your expectations will be discussed with your surgeon. You will be given important details about what the procedure entails and what results can be expected.

Lip Augmentation FAQ’s

What is the best way to plump up lips?

There are several options available for lip augmentation, all which are effective, including injectable fillers such as Restylane®, fat transfer, or lip implants. Different options have different benefits and limitations which will be discussed with your facial plastic surgeon during your consultation.

Which is better for me, fat transfer to lips or injectables?

There are benefits and limitations to both fat transfer and injectables. Injectables give an immediate result with no downtime but are temporary while a fat transfer will last longer and uses your own tissue.

How long do lip augmentation results last?

Depending on the type of lip augmentation performed, the results can be temporary, semi-permanent, or long-lasting. Temporary options are injectable fillers, fat transfer is semi-permanent because sometimes the fat is re-absorbed into the body, and a long-lasting option would be with the use of lip implants.

How long does swelling last after lip injections?

The amount of swelling depends on the type of procedure used to enhance the lips, but in general, swelling can last from one to two days after the use of injectable filler to a week to 10 days after surgical lip augmentation.
