What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is designed for patients that have always had thin lips and patients whose lips have thinned due to the natural aging process. The lips may be asymmetrical or uneven. Lip augmentation adds plumpness and definition for a fuller smile. Treatment may improve the shape of the mouth.
Augmenting the lips can also help minimize an excessively “gummy” smile (meaning too much of the gums show); with fuller lips, the gums display less prominently. Either subtle or dramatic results can be achieved, depending on the specific patient’s goals. Lip augmentation can also reduce the appearance of fine lip lines.
What Is Lip Lift?
A lip lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the amount of pink tissue visible and therefore makes the lips look fuller and more pronounced. This is achieved by shortening the distance between the nose and the top of the lip.

How Can I Augment My Lips with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers like Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Voluma® are a minimally invasive way to temporarily augment the lips. Fillers composed of biocompatible materials are injected into the lips to add volume and shape. The injections are quick, convenient and not painful. The results last several months. Treatment may be repeated periodically to maintain the results.
How Can I Augment My Lips with Fat Grafting?
Another minimally invasive lip augmentation surgery is through a technique called “dermal fat graft.” Excess fat and skin is extracted from an area of the body and grafted into the lips to enhance their shape and fullness. Since the patient’s own fat is used, there is very little chance of an adverse reaction.
One drawback is that the body can naturally absorb some of the fat. In anticipation of this, the lips may be slightly over-corrected during the initial procedure, or a secondary procedure may need to be performed several months later to achieve the desired correction. The results are generally long-lasting.
