Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that adds volume and fullness to the lips. The most common method of lip augmentation is an injectable filler.
Lips are one of the most prominent features of the face. When we are young lips are smooth and full but due to hereditary factors and the aging process, our lips tend to develop wrinkles and over time thin out. Lip augmentation or lip enhancement restores shape and volume by eliminating wrinkles and adding fullness to the lips
When To Consider Lip Augmentation
- Lips have become thinner and less full through the aging process
- Feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your lips
- Lips have always been thin and disappear when smiling
- Fuller lips will provide a more symmetrical face
What to Expect
Lip augmentation is achieved in a variety of ways, including fillers, fat transfers, and surgical lip implants. So depending on which avenue you choose, your procedure will be different. Human-based collagen, bovine-based collagen or hyaluronic acid-based fillers can be injected into your lips to restore volume. Fat transfer uses the same concept, although it uses fat from another part of your body and injects that into your lips. Over time, the injectable materials may be absorbed by the body.
Those who are looking for a more permanent solution, however, can elect to have surgical implants inserted around the corners of the mouth. No matter which lip augmentation procedure you choose, you are sure to have the beautiful, natural-looking results you desire.

The cost of lip augmentation depends on which procedure of enhancement is performed.
