Lip Augmentation

Injectables & Fillers Procedures

Thin lips are a common concern for many and may be the result of either genetics or age. Having fuller lips often translates into feeling more attractive, a more youthful look,  higher self-esteem, and of course–more smiles. At the Laser and Skin Surgery Center, Dr. Renuka Diwan offers patients a non-surgical approach to lip enhancement, helping her patients achieve the fuller, more youthful smiles they desire.

How is a non-surgical lip augmentation performed?

The lips become thinner with age and restoring fullness is an important part of facial rejuvenation. Greater fullness and definition of the upper or lower lips can be achieved with a painless, surgery-free lip enhancement. Dr. Diwan is able to increase the fullness of the lips using dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane Silk  or Juvéderm Ultra®. These fillers are safely injected into the lips to enhance their definition and size while maintaining a natural appearance and proportion. These filler injections can be repeated periodically to maintain the desired fullness of your lips. A very small amount of Botox, carefully injected in the lips, can also increase the visible height of the lip, and help to prevent too much fullness from fillers.

How long is lip augmentation recovery?

There is little to no downtime following a non-surgical lip enhancement with Dr. Diwan. You may experience some minor swelling or discomfort, but this should fade over the next couple days. Dr. Diwan will provide you with detailed care instructions.  Most patients are able to return to their daily routines. 2016-11-17-10_28_10-lips-and-mouth-before-after-gallery These photos are from a specific patient.

When will I notice my lip enhancement results?

You will notice an immediate change in the look of your lips following your treatment. At first, they may appear a little swollen, but over the next few days, any swelling will dissipate, and your lips will appear naturally fuller.

How long will the results of my lip augmentation last?

Because the fillers used will not provide permanent results, we recommend returning for a little more filler to maintain lip enhancement every 6 months or when you notice that your lips are losing  their fullness (*).
