A great way to bring out your facial features and achieve a more dramatic profile is through lip augmentation. This procedure is steadily becoming more popular among patients who are seeking both cosmetic enhancement and anti-aging solutions to help them look and feel younger.

Lip augmentation can also help to achieve a more refined facial contour. There are different methods that can be used to achieve fuller lips, a rounder pout, and a more defined cupid’s bow. Most commonly, the procedure involves implants or injections to deliver the results. If you have naturally thin lips, are experiencing a loss of volume due to aging or weight changes, or want to enhance the overall size or shape of your lips, we can help you achieve natural-looking results!

Why Consider a Lip Augmentation?

The lips, in particular, are a popular area where patients seek enhancement. Full, luscious lips are often a coveted trait, which can often enhance your facial profile. For women, it can help to feminize the face and soften the features, while still delivering a sexy pout. For men, lip augmentation can help to broaden the features and make the jaw area wider. Some patients opt to pair them with jaw implants to help deliver a more complete result.

You might want to consider a lip augmentation if you are hoping to correct thin lips or enhance the size or contour of your current pout. Since the lips are one of the focal parts of the face and often draw people’s attention, enhancing their appearance can help to improve your overall look. Additionally, it can help to reverse signs of aging, such as loss of volume and collagen that develops over time. In Darien, we offer flexible options ranging from implants to various non-surgical choices, like injections.

Cosmetic Lip Enhancement vs. Non-Surgical Options

Choosing the best form of lip augmentation Connecticut can offer you is important, as there are various types of procedures that may deliver different results. Typically, when people think of lip enhancement, they are picturing injectables treatments. This is a non-surgical option that delivers temporary, but long-lasting results using high-end ingredients like hyaluronic acid.

Our treatment options include:

  • Juvederm Ultra XC: This hyaluronic dermal filler is ideal for patients who want significant volume. It lasts for approximately six months.
  • Collagen Injections: Collagen was the first filler approved by the FDA in 1981. It produces smooth, natural results that last for around two to three months.
  • Silicone Implants: This is a surgical solution that helps to deliver a permanent result using silicone implants strategically placed in the lips.
  • Restylane Silk: Another hyaluronic acid formula that helps to reshape lips. Results also last around six months.
  • Fat Injections: Fat grafting is a new technique that uses your own fat to help achieve results. It tends to reabsorb faster, however.

Who Can Benefit from a Lip Augmentation?

Ideal candidates for lip augmentation are adults over the age of 21 in good general health, who have a realistic expectation of their results, and are lacking the volume, size, shape, or definition. Patients can opt for a more subtle look or schedule multiple treatments to work on increasing the size or shape more dramatically over time. Patients that may benefit from the procedure include those with:

  • Naturally thin lips
  • Asymmetrical lips
  • An under-defined cupid’s bow
  • A gummy smile
  • Volume loss due to aging or weight changes

The Lip Augmentation Procedure

Depending on what you choose, whether it is surgically placed or injected into a specific area in or around the lips, the approach, technique, and overall procedure will vary.

For injectables, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, your appointment will be performed in-office and you will likely be in and out in under an hour. Filler treatments are very popular due to their fast, easy, and virtually painless application. During your initial consultation with our plastic surgeons, you’ll be able to discuss all of your aesthetic goals and overall concerns to help determine the best treatment plan for you.
