Transform Your Look with Lip Augmentation: A Look Into Lip Fillers

Lip augmentation is a form of often non-surgical cosmetic enhancements for your lips. It’s often referred to as lip fillers because the primary procedure is the shaping of the lips. Lip shaping produces a more plump, feminine, symmetrical, and refined look.

Different Fillers Used

Fillers used in lip augmentation can totally change your procedure’s look, feel, and longevity. Let’s take a look at the most common and what our team recommends.


Juvederm is a well-known and secure option for lip augmentation without the need for surgery. The doctor can precisely apply the filler to fulfill various cosmetic objectives, such as improving the lip’s border and boosting its overall fullness. This is our team’s recommendation for the best results.

Fat Injections

Fat injections involve taking fat cells from one part of the body, treating them, and then injecting them into the lips. However, you should note that our team does not offer this procedure due to the frequent occurrence of uneven and bumpy outcomes.

Lip Implants

If you want a long-lasting solution to increase the volume of your lips, you may consider getting lip implants. However, the process involves making a tiny cut and inserting either GORE-TEX, SoftForm, or AlloDerm implants, which our team does not suggest due to the higher chances of infection and changes in sensation.

How Long Does it Last?

Because our staff recommends Juvederm, that is the time frame we will be referencing, as certain fillers perform differently than others. Juvederm consists of hyaluronic acid and a soft gel base. The rate at which the body absorbs this substance may vary from person to person. The results of lip augmentation usually last for six to 12 months. However, the dermal filler breaks down gradually, allowing you to monitor the process and schedule touch-ups as needed. This can give you peace of mind that no drastic change or “deflation” will happen to your lips.
