Lip Augmentation Options for Fuller Lips

Full, pillowy lips are a sign of youth, beauty, and femininity. Studies of facial attraction have shown that a woman’s lips are one of the first things that both men and women notice when deciding whether a face is attractive or not. Unfortunately, not all women are lucky enough to have full lips. This is why we are happy to offer many options for lip fillers in NYC at JUVA Skin & Laser Center. Lip augmentation improves the size of lips that are too thin or flat.

What is non-surgical lip augmentation?

Non-surgical lip augmentation is the most common lip augmentation technique. This method involves the use of injectable dermal fillers to increase the volume of lips. We recommend hyaluronic acid fillers for lip fillers including Restylane®, Juvéderm®, or Belotero®.

Why lip fillers are so popular?

Hyaluronic acid fillers give smooth, natural-looking results for lip augmentation, but it’s important for patients to be aware that the duration of results is shorter in the lips than when used elsewhere in the face, generally lasting less than three months. There are also surgical lip augmentation options, but because non-surgical lip augmentation works so well and achieves such impressive results, many patients prefer lip fillers.

What are the benefits of lip augmentation?

A nicely done lip augmentation has several benefits and advantages for the patient including the following:

  • Improved lip structure
  • Improved appearance of the lips
  • Better lip definition and contours
  • Reduces the appearance of aging
  • Nonsurgical and minimally invasive
  • Rapid recovery and little if any downtime
  • Little to no side effects or adverse reactions
  • Lips that are naturally more full and voluptuous
  • Tailored to meet a patient’s own goals and ideals

Am I a candidate for lip fillers?

Many of the fillers used for non-surgical lip augmentation are composed of naturally occurring ingredients like hyaluronic acid, or one’s own healthy fat harvested from elsewhere in the body. This makes fillers a great fit for most patients. The best candidates for non-surgical lip augmentation with lip fillers in NYC with our team tend to be patients who are interested in improving the size, shape, and proportions of their lips without having to undergo surgery.

Before & After Lip Fillers

Lips and attractiveness

Why are women’s lips so important? We’re not entirely sure, but because the lips are such a recognized factor of gender, we assume that selection pressure caused women to develop noticeably fuller lips at some point in the prehistoric past. Likely to prehistoric cultures, full lips signaled youth and health — key factors in fertility, and therefore more desirable. Since the earliest recorded history, full lips have been recorded as an attractive feature for women, and lip makeup is listed among the Egyptians’ cosmetic palette. Cosmetic lip enhancement is common to most cultures around the world.

Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation FAQ 

How do I prepare for non-surgical lip augmentation?

We recommend that patients cease smoking as well as taking any anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin for up to two weeks before the procedure.

How much do lip fillers cost?

Dermal fillers are priced per unit of product and varying amounts of filler are required to reach each patient’s own unique goals for the treatment. On average, patients should expect to pay a few to several hundred dollars.

How often should I get lip fillers?

One treatment session is usually all that is required to see stunning results from lip fillers. But since lip fillers are eventually metabolized by the body, you might choose to have maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 months to maintain that perfect pout. And that’s another benefit of nonsurgical lip augmentation—if you want to adjust your results slightly, or perhaps re-accentuate that cupid’s bow, all it takes is another treatment visit.

Are there potential risks or side effects associated with lip fillers?

While rare, some temporary side effects of lip fillers may include mild swelling or bruising. It's crucial to choose a skilled practitioner to minimize any potential risks.

Can lip fillers be reversed or adjusted if needed?

Yes, lip fillers can often be reversed or adjusted using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. This provides flexibility to refine or correct the results if necessary.

Can I get lip fillers if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

It is generally advised to avoid getting lip fillers while pregnant or breastfeeding due to potential risks to the baby. Consult with your healthcare provider for personalized guidance.

Is lip augmentation painful?

Lip augmentation injections may cause mild discomfort or a slight pinch during the procedure, but many providers use numbing agents to minimize any pain. Overall, most patients tolerate the injections well.
