How Is Lip Augmentation Performed?

Lip augmentation is often performed non-surgically, using an injectable dermal filler. The filler is injected into the lips to enhance the shape, add volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, etc. Lip augmentation can bring the lips into balance with your other facial features. It can also increase your natural lip size or restore lost volume or thinning due to aging. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your lips, come see us to learn about your options.

Typically, Dr. Coan recommends using a hyaluronic acid filler, like Juvederm, for lip enhancement. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the skin. It is highly biocompatible and can be used without pre-treatment testing. Lip enhancement with a hyaluronic acid filler typically lasts for 6-9 months. Results can be maintained with regular retreatment.

I Don’t Want Duck Lips- Help!

Natural-looking lip augmentation results are possible, but only if you choose your injector carefully. It is very easy to overuse filler in the lips, resulting in overfilled “duck lips.” Dr. Coan is careful to balance the lips with your other features and not overpower them. He has found that restraint is the key to results that are both natural-looking and full. He’ll use the right amount of filler to provide the results you’re looking for.

Fat Grafting for Lip Augmentation

If you want a longer-lasting solution for lip augmentation, consider a fat transfer. This procedure provides similar results to hyaluronic acid injectables but with longer-lasting results. Fat is extracted from an area on the body, cleaned and processed, and injected into the lips. This transferred fat can establish a blood supply and become a permanent part of the lips. Fat grafting can provide results without the need for touch-up treatments. A few initial treatments may be needed to achieve your best results.

For kissable lips that look and feel natural, come see Dr. Coan. Lip enhancement can give you the fuller voluptuous lips you’re dreaming of.
