It’s no secret that full, shapely lips are a hallmark quality of beauty. For women who feel their lips are too thin or misshapen, lip augmentation at Cosmoplastic Surgery can add volume and improve definition and shape. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh delivers two distinct forms of lip augmentation—one non-surgical, and one minimally invasive. Based upon your anatomy and cosmetic goals, you and Dr. Alizadeh will thoroughly determine the best method of lip augmentation for you.

Injectable Dermal Fillers

As a non-surgical procedure, dermal fillers are a great way to get luscious lips with zero downtime. At Cosmoplastic Surgery, we typically use a proprietary technique in which we use microdroplet injections of Juvederm or Restylane with anesthetics to add shape and volume to the lips. We can also fine-tune the area around the lips by reducing the appearance of vertical lip lines or nasolabial folds. This procedure can be performed with Pro-nox to make sure you have a comfortable experience.

Our dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Hyaluronic acid retains moisture, further contributing to the plumping, filling effects of the dermal filler. Following lip augmentation with dermal fillers, the results are visible immediately and will last up to one year. Our office will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure the filler settles in the perfect shape.

Before & After

Fat Transfer Lip Augmentation

Fat transfer has the distinct advantage of Firstly, utilizing your body’s own excess fat deposits Secondly, to provide a smooth enhancement of the lip volume. In Doctor Alizadeh’s hands, your own fat is processed and replaced in a like manner in the lip in order to provide support and volume where it is needed.

To begin, Dr. Alizadeh will perform precise “liposuction”— a procedure in which he carefully selects fat cells, purifies it and prepares it for reinjection. Using a micro-cannula, he may also add PRF, or plasma rich fibrin that bring growth factors and regenerative cells to the purified fat. During fat transfer lip augmentation, Dr. Alizadeh always uses a conservative approach, never overfilling or producing an unnatural result.

Unlike dermal fillers, fat transfer lip augmentation is associated with some swelling and possible bruising; therefore be sure to discuss any history of bruising with the Cosmoplastic team prior to the procedure. downtime. Any discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Once healed, you will be able to enjoy the full, luscious lips you’ve been seeking.
