The Ultimate Guide to Lip Augmentation

Orlando, FL

If you were born with thin lips or if your lips are becoming thinner as part of the natural aging process, you may wonder what you can do to make them bigger. 

Lip augmentation through dermal fillers is an excellent option for people who want to enhance the size of their lips. Many of our patients who undergo lip filler treatments remark on how natural their results are and how much they love the enhanced youthfulness of their appearance.

What Is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to provide fuller and plumper lips. Dermal fillers such as Restylane Kysse are commonly used for lip augmentation procedures. Made from a hyaluronic acid gel, Restylane Kysse is the first FDA-approved lip filler specifically designed for lip augmentation. 

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced in the body. It contributes to a more hydrated, plumper appearance on the skin and lips. 

Over time, the body begins to reduce the production of this beneficial substance. Dermal fillers help support areas of the skin where lines and hollowness have started to appear, resulting in a more youthful look.

Lip augmentation procedures can help restore lost volume and enhance the shape of the lips. They can also smooth wrinkles that appear on the top of the lips or along the sides of the mouth. Restylane Kysse offers long-lasting results for patients who undergo lip augmentation as one of the top dermal fillers recommended for the procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation isn’t for everyone. However, those who undergo the procedure often experience fantastic benefits. A few include:

Enhanced Appearance

Lip fillers can enhance your already beautiful appearance. They allow patients to feel more youthful and can correct misshapen lips. In addition, they can provide additional volume to lips that are beginning to thin due to the natural aging process.

Natural Fullness

The hyaluronic acid used in lip fillers is a natural substance produced in the body. Once injected, dermal fillers are absorbed by the body. In the past, people who wished to enhance the size of their lips often used lip implants. While lip implants last longer than dermal fillers, lip fillers offer a more natural-looking solution.

Gradual Enhancement

Once lip fillers are injected, lips gradually increase in size. Individuals who have thin lips but want to control the volume they obtain through dermal fillers can use them over time to manage their results. Once they know the amount of filler they prefer, future appointments can ensure that the proper volume is maintained.

Limited Downtime

A lip augmentation procedure can be performed quickly — often in under an hour. Those with other responsibilities appreciate the short appointment time. Recovery from lip augmentation is fast. Patients are usually able to return to their normal activities immediately following their appointment.

Long-Lasting

When lip augmentation is performed with Restylane Kysse, results last up to a year. The unique formula of Restylane Kysse is designed especially for lips. You can experience the benefits of your lip fillers for a long time before maintenance sessions are required.

What Can I Expect During a Lip Augmentation Procedure?

Before undergoing lip augmentation, you’ll meet with a physician for a full consultation. Our skilled medical team is known for our desire to truly understand an individual’s goals before recommending a facial rejuvenation treatment. You can feel very comfortable in our hands when you’re seeking a lip augmentation procedure. 

Our team will ensure that you fully understand the lip augmentation procedure before scheduling your appointment for treatment. We will inquire about your medical history and any medications you are currently taking to determine whether you are a good candidate for lip fillers.

On the day of your lip augmentation procedure, you’ll be given a local numbing agent to ease any discomfort. Our medical provider will carefully mark the site of the injections to be performed. Very thin needles will be used to inject Restylane Kysse in the intended areas. You’ll be given ice after the injections to minimize any potential swelling. 

We’ll give you a list of instructions to follow after your lip augmentation procedure. Results will be immediate, but you’ll see optimal effects within a week of your treatment. Of course, if you have questions about caring for your lips following dermal filler treatment, you can contact us anytime.

Can I Combine Lip Augmentation with Other Procedures?

Yes! Lip augmentation is commonly performed alongside other treatments, such as Botox or dermal filler treatments for the face. 

Botox is a neuromodulator that can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles that commonly appear on the forehead and in the corners of the eyes. These lines typically form as a result of facial expressions that people make over time. In some cases, they may be genetic.

Dermal fillers designed for the face can be used to fill in hollow areas of the cheeks or wrinkles such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. These lines appear between the nose and mouth. Filler treatments can also be used in the neck to reduce the appearance of horizontal lines that often occur with age. 

If you have concerns that you’d like to address in addition to achieving fuller lips, mention them to us during your consultation. We can help you determine which options are best for you.
