Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation enhances your lips by giving them a fuller, plumper appearance. It can also minimize wrinkles around your mouth. Dr. Stella offers several methods of lip augmentation, including lip implants and injections with fillers, which give our Seattle patients beautiful, natural-looking results. If you want youthful, plump lips with fewer fine lines around your mouth, you may want to consider the benefits of fillers.

Who is a good candidate for lip augmentation?

People who want to fill out naturally thin lips or achieve better balance in the size of their upper and lower lips may benefit from lip augmentation. Older patients who want to reverse the appearance of thinning lips due to aging also can benefit from lip augmentation.

What is involved in lip injections?

Lip injections generally take less than an hour in Dr. Stella's Seattle office, with a local anesthetic used to make the procedure more comfortable. Dr. Stella uses dermal fillers such JUVÉDERM® to achieve subtle improvements in her patients' lip shape during the augmentation. The procedure also frequently helps to minimize bleeding lipstick lines.

How do lip implants work?

During the lip implant procedure, Dr. Stella makes small incisions at the corners of the lips and then inserts a soft silicone rubber implant. This is a good option for those who prefer a longer-lasting approach. Swelling, tenderness, and bruising of the lips may occur temporarily.

What is the best treatment for lip lines?

Lip injections with dermal fillers can instantly smooth away vertical lines around the lips with no downtime. Surface treatments like microneedling and ResurFX™ laser resurfacing can address these lines as well.

How long do lip fillers last?

The life of lip filler results depends on the filler used. Lip injections with JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® last up to 1 year, while other fillers last about 4 to 6 months.
