As people age, lip volume can decrease. This procedure restores the size of the lips to their natural size, and patients feel like themselves again. Lip augmentation is also considered in patients who are unhappy with the natural appearance of their lips, and would like a change.

Lip augmentation is done using injectable fillers or autologous fat taken from an area of the patient’s body where they have excess fat deposits. All of our fillers are FDA approved and include Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm. The facial fillers produce fuller lips and help patients achieve their ideal look while lasting several months.

Patients considering lip augmentation are often pleased to learn that this procedure is done with minimal downtown and little to no side effects, so they can return to daily life quickly. Lip augmentation is an outpatient procedure and only requires a local anesthetic. Sometimes, incisions are needed, and these are made in the mouth to minimize any marks or scarring on the lips. Patients can expect to experience some swelling and mild discomfort for a few days following the procedure. Intravenous sedation is usually offered in cases where liposuction is used to harvest a patient’s own fat.

Ideal patients are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations of the outcome of the procedure.
