Fillers have been on the market for years, and surgeons have refined their techniques, so there’s no reason to overdo lip augmentation. The purpose of most cosmetic procedures is to restore self-confidence and a youthful, revitalized appearance. The best cosmetic surgery is invisible, meaning your friends and family never notice you had work done. They just think you look relaxed, healthy, and at the top of your game. But being at the top of your game doesn’t mean having over-inflated lips. An experienced plastic surgeon can help you get more voluptuous lips or accent your upper lip’s “cupid’s bow” without giving you duck lips.

What Is Lip Augmentation?

Some people are unhappy with the way their lips appear and wish to have a fuller smile or alter the shape. Lip augmentation is an excellent way to achieve this. There are two options for lip augmentation: permanent lip implants or lip injections. Lip injections work by injecting a filler like Juvederm, Belotero, or Restylane to make the lips look fuller.


Like other filler treatments, these will deflate over time, so you’ll need to repeat the treatment every six months or at least once a year. This option is terrific for those concerned about plastic surgery prices or aren’t sure they’ll like the final look. The other option, lip implants, is a permanent solution for those who wish to avoid frequent trips to the doctor. These solid silicone implants require a short surgery, but they last much longer than the injections.
