About Lip Augmentation
If you naturally have thin lips or you notice less fullness because of age, surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation can help create a more shapely, fuller pout. We can improve the volume or shape of your lips with a variety of lip augmentation options, including fat transfer, silicone implants, or a lip lift. Lip augmentation creates beautiful results that last for years. If you prefer nonsurgical lip augmentation, we offer several dermal fillers that can temporarily add volume to the lips for a fuller look. Please contact Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL to schedule a consultation and learn more about lip augmentation. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang will discuss all of your choices and create a custom treatment plan.
- Lip Implants
Providing the longest-lasting results, we can add lip implants to the lower and/or upper lips, which enhance the volume and shape of your mouth.
- Fat Transfer
By removing stubborn fat from an area of the body with liposuction and injecting the purified fat into the lips, you can achieve natural-looking volume.
- Lip Lift/Vermilion Advancement
This surgical technique subtly changes the outer lines of the lower and/or upper lips to enhance the shape and area of the mouth.
- Dermal Fillers
Injectable dermal fillers can temporarily add volume to the mouth and reduce the appearance of fine lip lines.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

Is Lip Augmentation Right For You?
Nonsurgical or surgical lip augmentation can help you achieve fuller lips or a shapelier mouth. Depending on your cosmetic goals, you can decide on a surgical lip augmentation for long-lasting results or injectable fillers to avoid recovery time. At first, it may be a good option to try dermal fillers. This will give you a better idea about your preferred lip volume before undergoing surgery. Ideal candidates for upper and/or lower lip enhancement:
- Have naturally thin lips or have lost lip volume with age
- Have uneven or asymmetrical lips
- Want to enhance the entire face
- Maintain good health
During your consultation, Dr. Mang will help you select the best treatment type for you. The technique is different for each type of treatment:
- Lip Implants
Dr. Mang creates a thin incision in the corner of the lips so he can easily insert the implant(s). It can take weeks for swelling to subside and the implant(s) to settle into position, but this treatment provides improvements that last for years.
- Fat Transfer
Dr. Mang uses liposuction to extract fat from areas of your body that have unwanted fat. The extracted fat is purified and injected into your lips. We repeat the injections until we have achieved your desired goal. Since some fat may reabsorb during the recovery, we may overfill the lips. To maintain your results, we can repeat this treatment, but your results should last for many years.
- Lip Lift/Vermilion Advancement
A thin incision is made on the lower and/or upper border of the lip. After making the incision, a small area of skin outside the lips is removed. Next, the lips are gently pulled to cover the excised skin and stitched into their new position. This lip treatment creates lasting results that improve the shape and size of the lips.
- Dermal Fillers
Dr. Mang can perform nonsurgical lip augmentation with dermal fillers. Based on the type of dermal filler, it may contain a local anesthetic, or we will apply a numbing cream to the lips. Once you are numb, Dr. Mang administers injections into the lips and then massages them for better results. Right after your procedure, you can resume your daily routine.
What to Expect
We will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and to reduce discomfort. At first, your mouth will feel sore or tender. To address any uncomfortable symptoms, Dr. Mang recommends using cold compresses and nonprescription pain medications. If you received a fat transfer, please keep in mind that you will need to care for the liposuctioned area and your lips. For patients who received dermal filler injections, these treatments can last about 3 – 12 months. The longevity of your injectable depends on the formula. Lip implants provide long-lasting results, but over time, aging can impact results. During your consultation and depending on your treatment type, Dr. Mang will discuss the details about maintaining your results and scheduling your next appointment.
