Plump, luscious lips are an icon of sensuality and youth. To date, lip augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic treatments. Lip enhancement can be achieved through a range of cosmetic options, depending on each patient’s aesthetic goals.

Surgical lip enhancement/reduction may include:

  • Fat grafting/ nano fat grafting.
  • Permanent implants for lip augmentation - rarely performed  today
  • Gullwing subnasal lip lifts. Often needed in women in more advanced age for vertical shortening of the elongated lip
  • Vermilion advancement.
  • Lift of the corner of the mouth.
  • Treatment of lip lines and wrinkles usually requires combined use of injectable fillers or Nano Fat, Botulin toxin treatments and Laser Resurfacing. Recently micro needling and use of growth factors have shown promising results.
  • Correction of postsurgical and traumatic lip deformities.
  • Lip reduction- rare.

Lip enhancement with injectable fillers:

  • Performed using hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane® – the only filler that is FDA-approved for lip augmentation.
  • Restylane Lyft – Used for significant volume enhancement.
  • Belotero – Use for the minor addition of volume and fine lines.
  • Juvéderm® -Used in our practice only by patients request. Gives a “Wet look” of the lip frequently considered “Cheap“ and unattractive.
