With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic
Full, sensuous lips should enhance a face and not overpower other aesthetic features. Lip augmentation should feel soft and supple given the important function of one’s lips in daily activities such as eating, kissing, talking, and expressing emotions (smiling and pouting). You can achieve this look of bigger, fuller lips, the “Angelina Jolie”-style lips easily at CARE. Our Nurse Injectors use a conservative aesthetic eye that focuses on the shape, style, balance, and harmony between both the upper and lower lips and how the lips fit a particular face. They pay special attention to facial expressions and how the lips complement those expressions. Considerations for lip augmentation are age, facial shape, ethnicity, gender, and of course your personal aesthetic desires and wishes.
The first step to treating your lips is knowing what aesthetic goals you wish to accomplish! Depending on the shape, size, and feel you would like to have, can help you determine which filler option is the best for you. At CARE, we use Juvéderm fillers by Allergan. These options range from Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, Volbella, Vollure, Voluma, and Volux. Some fillers are catered to specific regions of the face, while others can be used in combination with one another to create a harmonized look.

Those who do not have any prior conditions or concerns are candidates for lip filler. You may want to avoid lip fillers if you have an active cold sore or current bruising, but this is something that can be discussed during your consultation. An injectable consultation with one of our Nurse Injectors can help to determine the best treatment plan catered to your desired aesthetic goals!
Lip Augmentation can be performed as an injection of filler in the office or with fat grafting in the operating room. The type of lip filler for injection varies but has the advantage of an immediate result with no downtime. Like all fillers, the result only lasts a few months and must be repeated. Fat grafting is a more permanent solution to lip augmentation but requires a trip to the OR, has considerable swelling for a week or two and some of the transferred fat may disappear, requiring further fat grafting. Many patients try fillers first and if they like the look, consider fat grafting for a more long-lasting result. Lip augmentation with fat grafting is often incorporated with other facial cosmetic procedures like eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, facelift, or other facial fat grafting procedures.
At CARE, we have amazing Nurse Injectors that are specially trained to provide the highest level of service. One of our nurse injectors is a Nurse Practitioner and one is a Registered Nurse who is a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, or CANS, certified, so you are in great hands. CARE has been awarded numerous surgeries over the years, but in 2023 alone, we have received the Cary Maggy Award (2023) for Best Medspa and Plastic Surgeon, Top 10 North Carolina Allergan Location, Top 500 Status for Allergan Aesthetics, and a Top Member of the ZO Circle Club.
Lip filler provides several benefits, making it one of the most popular forms of dermal filler. It adds volume, definition, and shape to the lips. This makes your facial features more proportional and balanced, creating a more youthful appearance. It provides fullness, which can treat lip lines and wrinkles. It is very customizable, gives immediate results, and has little to no side effects. This non-surgical procedure is a great way to boost your confidence and create a beautiful natural appearance!
