What Is A Lip Augmentation?

Full, plump lips are often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, there are many ways to enhance them. Lip injections using natural or synthetic fillers can keep your lips plump for months at a time. Lip implants and other surgical procedures can also be performed for a more long-term solution. Other options include lip lifts, and vermillion (lip) advancement.

Am I A Good Candidate For A Lip Augmentation?

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider lip enhancement:

  • Good candidates for lip enhancement want to plump up thin lips or create a fuller look. If you smile and your top lip or both lips disappear, you may benefit from lip augmentation.
  • Some techniques can improve uneven lips, the shape of your mouth and how much of your gum shows when you smile.

How Is A Lip Enhancement Augmentation Performed?

There are many different options to enlarge or enhance the size and shape of your lips: fat injections, filler injections, dermal grafting, vermillion advancement, lip implants and lip lifting. Injections, grafting, and implants can physically change the plumpness and volume of your lips, while lip lifts and vermillion advancement can change the shape and increase the amount of colored area of your lips.

How Long Will The Results Last?

How long the results last from your lip enhancement procedure depends on the treatment chosen and your reaction to the treatment. Fat injections may require multiple injections but could lead to long-term lip enhancement. Filler injections results depend on the type of filler used. Some fillers last from three to six months, while others last almost a year. Dermal grafting, lip implants, lip lifting, and vermillion advancement provide essentially long-lasting results.
