Lip Enhancement

Surgical enhancement of the lips can be performed in order to give a fuller and more sensual appearance to the upper and/or lower lips. Injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are most commonly used to improve the esthetic outline of the lips. These fillers composed of hyaluronic acid are injected using a fine sterile needle at several points along the lip/skin line. Slight overfilling is performed to allow for tissue absorption following treatment.

Most patients are able to resume their normal activities following a brief healing period. Some temporary puffiness of the surrounding skin is considered normal and will resolve within a few days. The results of hyaluronic acid augmentation of the lips will vary among individuals, and results may last from nine months to a year or longer.

A new product is now available called Volbella XC for enhancement of the lips and correction of “smokers lines”.
