Looking for Lovelier Lips?

Because the lips are the most sensual part of the face, it’s no surprise that fuller, rounder lips are frequently requested by our patients. Many simply want to improve their smile, while others want to correct changes that have occurred over time as a result of aging or smoking. Whatever the reason may be, lip enhancement results are more refined and elegant today than ever before.

The Three Goals of Lip Enhancement

  • To add volume to thin or age-depleted lips
  • To improve definition in the lip borders 
  • To correct the vertical lines that can develop with time

How is Lip Enhancement Done?

A variety of cutting-edge procedures, techniques, and materials are available for lip augmentation and enhancement. These newer options help to assure patients they can get the naturally alluring look they seek using the approach that’s best suited for their unique anatomy, comfort levels, and lifestyle. Lip augmentation can be performed using hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers or it can be accomplished through the use of transferred fat or surgically administered lip implants.

Dr. Shuster and his staff are the most amazing people you’ll ever meet! Professional, caring, loving, and they make you feel right at home. I could not have had a better experience, and he makes me feel and look phenomenal!

Fillers for Lip Augmentation

Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® work very well for adding both volume and definition to the lips. This injectable treatment requires only a very short visit. While there will be some swelling and perhaps mild bruising, there is no downtime. Results from lip fillers can last six months or longer. Dr. Shuster will administer the injections in a subtle and elegant way, never making you appear “overfilled”; only natural.

Fat and Tissue Transfer for Lip Augmentation

Dr. Shuster will often use a patient’s very own tissue to add volume or improve the definition of the lips. This tissue to be grafted is usually either fat or fascia (connective tissue made of collagen). Both are readily available and can be acquired in a very inconspicuous manner so as not to leave a visible mark. 

When lip enhancement is done using a patient’s own fat, it is injected just like a dermal filler. However, before this can happen, the fat must be removed from another part of the body (such as the stomach, buttocks, or thighs) using liposuction

Once the fat is removed, it will be purified and then placed into a syringe for the injections. 

When fascia is used, it will first be removed from an area of the body using a small incision. Once harvested, it will then be placed inside the lips through tiny incisions around the corners of and within the mouth.

Results with using tissue or fat for lip augmentation are very long-lasting and sometimes even permanent.

Which Lip Augmentation Procedure is Right for You?

With all the options for lip augmentation and enhancement, you may be wondering which procedure would best meet your aesthetic goals. 

This will depend on Dr. Shuster’s professional opinion, as well as your personal preferences (such as if you want permanent results or not) and your medical history (such as allergies). During your consultation, Dr. Shuster will discuss each technique and fully educate you on all your options so that together, you can make the right choice for your lip augmentation procedure.
