Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation is becoming more popular every year as patients seek fuller, plumper, and more sensuous lips. While some individuals may want to enhance naturally thin lips, others wish to restore some volume that may have been lost with age. Whatever the reason for the treatment, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sepideh Saber offers a variety of lip augmentation services. She is widely known for her sensitivity, aesthetic sense, and ability to create outcomes that are natural-looking and flattering to the patient’s overall facial appearance.

What Types of Lip Augmentation are Available?

Three lip augmentation options help to enhance or restore the appearance of thin or flat-looking lips:

The most common form of lip augmentation employs one of several hyaluronic acid fillers that may go by several brand names. The treatment is quick, non-invasive, and can provide up to 12 months of more voluminous lips.

Also known as fat grafting, this form of augmentation takes fat from another part of the patient’s body and injects it back into the lips. While this option requires liposuction surgery to obtain the fat, the results are permanent and typically do not require further touch-ups.

While an upper lip lift is not actually an augmentation procedure, it nevertheless creates the appearance of a fuller, more youthful upper lip. It can be performed through the use of Botox, in which case it is sometimes referred to as the lip-flip procedure. Alternatively, it can be performed surgically for a lasting effect.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation

The duration of the benefits of each procedure range from short term to semi-permanent to indefinite. Generally speaking, all three augmentation options offer the following benefits:

  • Restored or increased volume and plumpness
  • Enhanced shape
  • Smoothed lip lines
  • Increased satisfaction with lip appearance
