Lip injections and augmentation increases the size of the lip for patients whose lips have lost volume with age, or who are unhappy with the natural appearance of their lips. Through injectable fillers, autologous grafts, or synthetic implants, our Miami patients can achieve larger, fuller lips with minimal downtime and little-to-no side effects. With realistic expectations and good overall health, most patients are satisfied with the results of this procedure.
Lip injections in Miami. At our Miami office, lip injections and augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis and requires only a local anesthetic. If incisions are needed, they are often made in the mouth to conceal any scarring. Injectable fillers produce fuller lips that last for several months, while implants can provide long-term enhancement.*
Patients will likely experience mild swelling and discomfort after lip augmentation, but these symptoms usually go away on their own within a few days, at which point patients can enjoy fuller lips and an overall enhanced appearance. When it comes to reducing down time after lip injections, Miami expert Dr. Mariano Busso is trusted among patients to minimize discomfort and swelling.

“Please Doctor—No Duck Lips”
“One of the biggest fears in cosmetic augmentation is lip augmentation. Everyone is concerned, ‘Doctor, please, I don’t want to have those duck lips.’ The truth is, when we improve lips, there are many things we can do to create a softer lip without actually changing volume, shape, or make it look unnatural.” – Dr. Mariano Busso
Lip Lines. The appearance of the lips can be improved simply by targeting lip lines. Lip line treatments create a softer and sometimes fuller look. This type of lip augmentation also improves the appearance of lips while wearing lipstick.
Mouth Corners. Another lip augmentation technique is to open the corners of the mouth. This allows for more lip to be shown, without the use of lip injections. As a result, lips appear to be fuller.
Defining Lips. Lip augmentation can also involve enhancing the appearance of the lips in a way that accentuates the transition between red lip and white lip. This makes the lips appear to be fuller and more defined.
Lifting Cupid’s Bow. Lips can also be augmented by lifting the cupid’s bow area of the upper lip. Cupid’s bow is located along the top edge at the center of the upper lip. By lifting this area, lips appear fuller and more defined without the use of lip injections.
