What is Lip Augmentation?

Two of the currently most popular and effective options for lip augmentation include lip fillers and fat transfer. There are many different benefits to each option, including minimal downtime, a natural look and feel, and customizable results. Both options enhance the lips by adding volume and creating a fuller appearance in order to balance the lips with the rest of the face. Performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, lip fillers and fat transfer are two of the most effective ways to boost your confidence and enjoy fuller lips.

What are My Options for Lip Augmentation?

Dr. Angelchik can recommend the best lip augmentation treatment for you depending on the size, shape, and projection you would like – and whether you want to undergo fat transfer or opt for injections instead. When selecting your option, it’s important to consider your existing anatomy so that your results don’t look fake or ‘ballooned’.  It may be possible that you benefit from augmentation on only one lip in order to bring them into better harmony, and Dr. Angelchik can recommend the best fit for you.

How is Lip Augmentation Performed?

Lip augmentation with fillers is a very quick and easy process. Dr. Angelchik will help you determine which filler product fits your goals (such as Restylane or Juvéderm) and then will administer the product into your lips using a very fine needle and numbing cream. He will carefully create your results and ensure he captures your ideal look. Once complete, you can return home.

Lip augmentation with fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure. To begin, Dr. Angelchik will perform liposuction on an area of your body with enough tissue. Then, the fat will be processed and injected into the lips in order to enhance their projection and volume. This option takes longer than fillers but can be a more attractive option for some patients.

Lip Augmentation Recovery and Results

Most patients are able to resume regular activity the day after fat transfer lip augmentation, but you should expect to be swollen and slightly tender post-operatively. Depending on the patient, there may be some bruising around the lips as well. Dr. Angelchik can provide instructions to follow before the procedure in order to reduce the chance of bruising, although it may not be a guarantee. Discomfort is usually present for a few days, which can be alleviated by pain medication prescribed by Dr. Angelchik if needed. 

Lip fillers do not require any recovery, but Dr. Angelchik will provide some aftercare steps to ensure you get the best results. This might include avoiding certain medications or touching the area after treatment. Depending on your lip filler, you will return for a touch-up treatment every 6-12 months or so in order to maintain your results.
