Lip Augmentation

What it is:

Lip augmentation allows patients to increase the fullness of small, thin lips, improve lip definition and reduce smoker's lines or lipstick lines that surround the mouth. Using injectable fillers made of hyaluronic acid, lip augmentation creates plump, soft lips and a kissable pucker. For further wrinkle reduction surrounding the lips, lip enhancement may include not only augmentation with fillers but also laser skin resurfacing with Active FX, Deep FX or Total FX.


Who it's for:

Whether you're born without much pout or your lips have grown taut and thin with age, lip augmentation restores volume and shape to lips in both men and women. Lip injections can also be extended to include filling in mouth wrinkles, or smoker's lines, that can contribute to lip deformity and loss of shape. Temporary lip enhancement with injectable fillers is safe for almost any healthy adult.


How it works:

For patients seeking temporarily lip augmentation with an injectable filler, Juvederm injections are recommended. During the procedure, Juvederm is injected along the border of one or both lips (known as the vermillion border) and other strategic locations on the lips. Juvederm contains a local anesthetic called lidocaine, so other than icing, no other anesthesia is typically necessary. If you have lip lines, a small amount of Juvederm may be injected around your mouth as well. Within 1-2 weeks all temporary swelling, bruising and lumpiness will resolve, and you'll have soft, full lips for six months to a year.
