Lip Augmentation

With increased age, our lips can deflate and lose volume. One way to address this problem is with a plastic surgery procedure called lip augmentation. Lip augmentation is often performed nonsurgically for a temporary improvement in volume that can last for 4-18 months. When performed nonsurgically, the lips are augmented with a filler to improve the shape and volume.

Alternatively, lip augmentation sometimes involves a surgical approach for a more durable, long-lasting result. Surgical lip augmentation involves liposuction and harvest of your own fatty tissue and injection of this fat deep in your lips. Lip injection can be done safely in both the clinic and the operating room.

What is recovery like after lip augmentation?

Recovery from plastic surgery on the lips is quite straightforward. Typically, there is some expected swelling that subsides over time. If fat injections are used, you might need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks following lip injection. Most patients are back to their normal routine in 1 week.
