Full lips but not “duck lips.” Natural, attractive lips that give no indication of any work having been performed. Those are the objectives and results of the advanced lip augmentation procedures we perform at our Miami aesthetic dermatology offices. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your lips, we invite you to schedule a consultation with us to discuss how we can help you.
Why Do People Choose Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation refers to the minimally invasive outpatient procedures we use to enhance lip volume and appearance. Our patients request these treatments because they effectively resolve many of the imperfections on and around our lips, including:
- Targeting Lip Lines. We can improve the appearance of your lips by targeting lip lines to give your lips a softer and sometimes fuller look. This type of lip augmentation also enhances the appearance of lips while wearing lipstick.
- Opening Mouth Corners. By opening the corners of your mouth, we allow for more lip to be shown without using lip injections. This results in lips appearing fuller.
- Defining Lips. We enhance the appearance of the lips by accentuating the transition between red lip and white lip. This makes the lips appear to be fuller and better defined.
- Lifting Cupid’s Bow. We can also raise the cupid’s bow area of the upper lip. By lifting this area, which is located along the top edge at the center of the upper lip, lips appear fuller and more defined without the use of lip injections.
What makes lip augmentation an appealing and popular option for so many people is the fact that these outpatient procedures require minimal downtime, have little or no side effects, and only require a local anesthetic to reduce any discomfort. In some procedures, minor incisions may need to be made. In such cases, we often make the incisions inside of the mouth which conceals and visible scarring.
There are three main types of lip augmentation we offer, each of which produces noticeable and long-lasting results and create larger, fuller, and more youthful appearing lips:
We can augment lips using several different lip fillers, including Restylane Silk, which was the first FDA-approved treatment specifically designed to treat lips and the lines around them. Restylane Silk is designed for precise lip shaping and for smoothing lines around the mouth to create a natural look. Similarly, Juvéderm Volbella is a filler designed specifically to enhance the volume of the lip, and Dr. Busso was among the first cosmetic physicians to introduce this fantastic product to patients in the U.S.
Autologous fat injections, also called fat grafting, use fat from another part of your body as a lip filler. Fat grafting typically involves liposuction surgery on a different part of the body, and we can perform the procedure without the need for incisions on the face or lips.
We use synthetic lip implants made of soft and pliable silicone or other substance to achieve a semi-permanent solution that requires minimal maintenance. Implants are best suited for patients desiring a noticeable increase in lip volume. We typically insert implants through tiny incisions hidden in the corners of the mouth.
