What Is Lip Augmentation?

Full, sensual lips are a staple in both beauty and fashion, making it ideal for both men and women. Lip augmentation with implants or dermal fillers plumbs the lip to enhance your existing facial features. Lip injections use natural or synthetic fillers to plump your lips for months at a time. Lip implants and other surgical procedures provide a more permanent solution. Every year, thousands of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida residents undergo successful lip augmentation and are pleased with their results.

Should I Consider Lip Augmentation?

If you feel self-conscious about your lips, you may want to consider lip augmentation to boost your confidence. A consultation with Dr. Rubinstein helps guide your decision, but generally, lip augmentation can be considered when your lips are:

  • Disappear when you smile
  • Naturally thin and poorly defined
  • Making you feel self-conscious
  • Creating an imbalance between other facial features

How Is Lip Augmentation Performed?

Lip augmentation is performed several ways, depending on your desired outcome. The most common method is injectable dermal filler. Other options include fat transfers and lip implants.

Fillers are the least invasive option. Fillers are routinely injected into your lip to add volume, shape, and structure for several months at a time. The most common fillers are made of synthetic material similar to substances your body naturally creates, resulting in a natural-looking increased volume.

Fat transfers are slightly more invasive and involve extracting fat cells from one area of your body through liposuction and injecting those cells into your lips. Results appear faster and longer lasting than fillers; typically lasting up to three years.

Surgical options also exist and provide the most permanent solution with lip augmentation. Lip implants involve inserting an implant through small incisions on the corner of your lips.

How Do I know Which Option Is Best for Me?

If you are considering lip augmentation to enhance your natural beauty, build confidence, or round out your face, you may find it difficult to decide which option is right for you. Dr. Rubinstein can help determine which lip augmentation is right for you based on your specific concerns and goals.
