Surgical Lip Augmentation

Surgical Lip Augmentation

The aging process, sun exposure and smoking all reduce the natural beauty of your lips. The corners of the mouth begin to sag or droop, and the V-shaped area of the upper lip, known as the “Cupid’s bow,” flattens and loses natural volume.

Surgical lip augmentation is a permanent solution for those patients who seek to restore symmetry, volume and definition to their lips. We use state-of-the-art techniques to create or re-establish full youthful lips. As the lips are one of the most mobile and expressive regions of the face, only select materials should be used to enhance lip fullness without risking an unnatural appearance, infection, extrusion or permanent deformities.

Who is a candidate for surgical lip augmentation?

Healthy men and women who desire a permanent solution for plump, luscious volume to their lips may be perfect candidates for surgical lip augmentation.

What is recovery like from surgical lip augmentation?

Surgical lip augmentation is performed in an outpatient setting, with most patients returning home after only a few hours. A very soft and natural appearing implant is used. This implant produces a very natural appearance of the lips and is both safe and permanent.

Prescription pain medication may be required for the first few days. Mild discomfort, swelling and bruising are common the first week or so after surgery. Most patients feel confident returning to their public and social lives in seven to 10 days. Our experienced surgeons reduce bruising and recovery time with the application of state-of-the-art techniques and the use of homeopathic or herbal options. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.
