What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that enhances the appearance of your lips with Dermal Fillers and Botox®, restoring a plumper, more youthful look. As the lips play a significant role in balancing facial appearance, lip augmentation aims to redefine lip shape and restore lost volume, creating a refreshed, natural look.

With no downtime, lip augmentation rejuvenates your appearance by reducing the impact of lines and wrinkles near the lips, including those fine lines around the mouth that typically occur due to lifestyle choices, like excess sun exposure or smoking.

Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), which helps restore the fullness of the lips and promotes collagen production, improving the overall appearance of the lips over time. Typically, lip fillers provide immediate and gradual results that last for up to 12 to 18 months.

The Botox Lip Flip is a popular non-surgical lip enhancement that uses Botox to enhance the appearance of lips by preventing repetitive muscular movements. The Lip Flip doesn’t add volume. It treats the upper lip and corners of the mouth to relax muscles, allowing the lips to curl outward. This creates a plumper appearance and a more defined shape for 3 to 6 months.

What Are the Benefits of Lip Augmentation?

Aging can negatively impact our appearance, including deflated lips and an unbalanced facial appearance. Lip augmentation can help restore plump lips and bring a youthful balance to your face, improving overall feelings of wellness.

Lip augmentation with Dr. Tanita uses subtle, precisely placed injections to significantly enhance the appearance of your lips without looking overdone. Lip augmentation can: 

  • Restore shape
  • Reduce signs of aging
  • Provide fuller, plumper lips 
  • Tighten skin around the lips

What Can I Expect During a Lip Augmentation Procedure?

Dr. Tanita customizes each lip augmentation to address each patient’s individual needs. However, to give you an idea of what to expect, here are some general steps your treatment will follow.

To reduce bruising risks, avoid alcohol and blood thinning medications such as aspirin, Advil, Motrin, and vitamin E for 1 to 2 days before treatment.

Come to your appointment with a clean face and no makeup on.

After our team greets you for check-in, Dr. Tanita will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last questions, and evaluate the treatment area. As many dermal fillers contain lidocaine, you will not receive any anesthetics prior to your lip augmentation procedure.

Typically, lip fillers are quick and relatively painless. Most patients report minimal discomfort, like a slight pinching sensation. The procedure will last approximately 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of injections.

Patients can resume most normal activities immediately following treatment. Expect some redness or swelling at the treatment site that resolves within 24 hours. Bruising may take up to a week to resolve. 

You will need to avoid strenuous activities, like exercising, for approximately 24 hours following your lip augmentation treatment.

How Soon Will I See My Lip Augmentation Results?

Following a lip augmentation, most patients notice significant enhancements immediately. Individual patient results will vary based on patient response and filler placement. With optimal placement, results may last from 12 to 18 months, and you may require follow-up treatments to maintain results.

After a Botox lip flip, most patients notice that muscles begin to relax within 24 to 48 hours, enhancing the appearance of their lips. Patients should see visible results within 1 week. Typically, Botox results last between 3 to 6 months.
