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.

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

Techniques

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.
