What is Lip Augmentation?

All of us will experience lip thinning as we age, while some of us are born with naturally thinner lips. This can cause dissatisfaction over time and make you feel unhappy with your appearance when you glance in the mirror.

Lip augmentation is one way you can address this by giving you plumper, fuller lips. Augmentation means to make part of your body bigger – in this case, your lips. There are two options to augment the lips once they’ve thinned out: injectable dermal fillers and surgery. Lip augmentation via injection is the most common type. A dermal filler can be injected directly into your lips and around your mouth. If you would like longer-lasting or permanent results, you can consider procedures such as fat transfer or surgery for tissue removal.

Types of Lip Augmentation

During an initial consultation for lip augmentation, patients can discuss their treatment goals, learn about the range of solutions we offer, and get answers to any questions they may have.

Lip augmentation patients will generally start by discussing their care with our medical spa. If a surgical solution is a better fit, we will refer them to one of our experienced plastic surgeons.

There are several different options for you to consider. The lip augmentation treatment we recommend will depend on the areas you want to improve. A description of some of these options follows.

Botox for Lines and Wrinkles

Botox is one of the world’s most popular injectable treatments for signs of aging. It temporarily weakens the muscles that activate facial wrinkles, softening their appearance. Botox can be a great option if you are interested in reducing lines around your lips. Patients can expect gentle and expert care with Botox and with any injectable treatment. Our medical spa has been recognized by Allergan, the product’s manufacturer, as being in the top 1% of U.S. practices based on volume and experience.

Dermal Fillers

Renuance’s medical spa uses both the Júvederm and Restylane families of dermal fillers for lip augmentation. With these injectable products, we can plump up thin lips and fill in facial lines. The treatments encourage collagen development and offer noticeable aesthetic benefits. Dermal fillers can be an excellent option if you are interested in fast-acting improvement that will last for a year or two. Many of our Temecula patients opt to get treatment before a big event or in advance of family gatherings.

Natural Fat Injection

Natural fat offers many of the same advantages as dermal fillers. Unlike with dermal fillers, however, the aesthetic benefits of injecting fat should be permanent. In this surgical approach to lip augmentation, your doctor will harvest unwanted fat from an area of your body. The surgeon will then inject the fat to add fullness to your lips or to fill in facial lines and wrinkles.

Tissue Excision

As you age, you may see the distance between the bottom of your nose and the top of your upper lip increasing. A tissue excision surgery will remove some of the excess skin, bringing the lip up to its younger position.

Recovery from Lip Augmentation

Temecula patients can go home immediately after their visit. Icing the area will reduce swelling and bruising, which should subside after a day or two.

If you are having surgery with Renuance, your consultation and procedure will be on different days. Our surgeons typically conduct lip augmentation procedures with patients under IV sedation or general anesthesia. After recovery of about two weeks, swelling should subside, and you should be able to enjoy the results of your procedure: a fuller pout, smoother skin, and a more youthful appearance.

The Lip Augmentation Procedure

Whether you receive treatment from Renuance’s medical spa or have a procedure with one of our surgeons, the care we provide will prioritize your comfort, your safety, and natural-looking, attractive results. In a typical injectable treatment with our medical spa, the products we will use will include numbing medication. This will desensitize the area after each injection.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation

As you get older, the features of your lips can change in a way that ages your appearance. You may also just have been born with thin lips and have always wanted a fuller smile. Lip augmentation addresses thinning lips, lines around the mouth, and the widening distance between the bottom of the nose and the upper lip.

Renuance Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa offers non-invasive lip fillers through our luxury medical spa. In most cases, Temecula lip filler patients can have a consultation and get treatment on the same day, and our procedures are performed by registered nurses with more than 15 years of experience. As a comprehensive care provider, Renuance also offers surgical lip augmentation. This option is best for patients who want a permanent solution or who have needs beyond the medical spa’s services. Our board-certified surgeons will coordinate with you and your nurse to determine the best approach for your treatment. In either case, you can expect a fuller, more youthful, and natural-looking appearance.

Lip Augmentation Frequently Asked Questions

When should you get lip augmentation?

If you have naturally thin lips or notice that your lips are thinning with age, then an FDA-approved lip filler may provide a solution. The dermal injectables available are designed to plump your lips and provide younger, natural contours, helping you find satisfaction with your appearance.

How much does lip augmentation cost?

The price for lip augmentation depends on how much fuller you want your lips, which can mean extra injections. This will affect the overall cost of your procedure. To get a precise estimate, you will need to come in for a consultation with one of the doctors here at the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa, who can recommend a plan of treatment that is unique to you and your specific needs.

Since lip augmentation is usually an elective procedure, your insurance provider will not cover the price. If you need assistance paying the full cost of treatment upfront, we partner with CareCredit, Alphaeon, and Point Loma Credit Union. These three financing companies can help make your payment more affordable.

Is lip augmentation painful?

The injections come with lidocaine in them, which is a numbing agent. This helps ease discomfort from the injections. However, because you are putting a substance into your lips, there may be some tenderness and aching as your lips stretch and adjust. If necessary, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers to alleviate any symptoms.

Should I go to a plastic surgeon for lip augmentation?

Yes. The board-certified plastic surgeons at the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa are specifically trained to both customize and plan for your unique needs and perform delicate procedures. Our expert plastic surgeons can also make sure you’re the right kind of candidate for lip augmentation, as well as discuss other alternative treatments.

Will I get scarring from lip augmentation?

It is possible that you may develop unevenness or bumps in your lips from the injection, but your surgeon can smooth these out. It is also possible to develop scar tissue from the injection (as can happen with any injection), but the surgeon can also treat this.

Is lip augmentation safe?

Yes. Although there may initially be some side effects, such as bruising, redness, and swelling, these are common and will quickly fade.

How long do the results from lip augmentation last?

Lip augmentation is a temporary procedure that can last anywhere from six months to a year. This can vary slightly from person to person and depending on which filler you choose. Injectables, including Juvéderm or Voluma, are non-surgical cosmetic options that can plump up your lips for up to 6 months per session. For permanent results, Temecula patients may have a very small amount of their fat removed through liposuction, then have that fat processed and injected into their lips.

Am I a candidate for lip augmentation in Temecula?

If you are interested in lip augmentation in Temecula and the surrounding areas, you will need to schedule a consultation at the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa to establish your eligibility prior to scheduling any procedures. Ideal candidates for lip augmentation do not have plump lips and are not suffering from certain medical conditions such as diabetes, which can hinder the healing process. You must also be at least 21 years old.
