What Are the Potential Benefits of Lip Enhancement?

While various strategies for lip augmentation exist, patients who pursue these treatments can generally expect benefits such as:

  • Plumper, more youthful-looking lips*
  • A more defined and flattering mouth shape
  • Enhanced symmetry
  • Reduction of lines or wrinkles surrounding the mouth
  • Long-lasting effects, depending on the type of treatment

When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon or injector, both surgical and non-surgical lip augmentation can provide beautiful results that can last for many months and sometimes years.

Which Lip Enhancement Options Are Available?

If you express interest in achieving any of the goals mentioned above, our team at Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta may recommend the following options:

  • Injectable fillers. High quality injectable fillers – such as those in the JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® families – can replenish collagen or volume in the lips. Especially when administered by an expert injector (such as our very own Jenny Azar, MS, NP-C), dermal fillers can create smooth, beautiful effects.
  • Lip flip. A “lip flip” uses neurotoxin injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic to plump the upper lip. To perform this innovative treatment, Jenny or Dr. Hart will inject the neurotoxin into the edge of your lips to encourage the muscles to relax and the lip to flip upward.
  • Fat grafting. Also known as “autologous fat transfer,” fat grafting is a popular technique that involves the removal of fat with liposuction. After the fat is removed, it can be purified and re-injected into the lips to enhance their shape.*
  • Lip lift. A lip lift is a specialized surgical procedure that differs from lip augmentation techniques in the way it is performed. Specifically, a lip lift aims to shorten the distance between the nose and upper lip.

How Much Does Lip Enhancement Cost? 

The cost of lip augmentation at Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta tends to vary widely, as we can use many different strategies. Factors such as the treatment and number of sessions performed and the type of injectable(s) utilized are liable to impact the final amount.

With this in mind, we welcome you to come to our friendly staff with any questions you may have about financing your care. Please also note that we offer eligible patients the opportunity to pay for their treatment through CareCredit®, United Medical Credit, and ALPHAEON® CREDIT, three reputable third-party financiers.
