What Is Lip Augmentation?

While many patients are satisfied with the fuller lips that they receive from a fat transfer or an injectable filler, others want a longer-lasting solution. For these patients, they can opt for lip augmentation with implants. Plano, TX board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, along with his highly trained staff, perform this surgery to provide patients with fuller lips, an improved lip shape, and natural-looking results. Patients will have their choice of size, shape, and material to use, which Dr. Ho will use his expertise to help patients choose the look best suited for their needs and goals.

How Does Lip Augmentation Work?

Depending on the augmentation option the patient chooses, surgery may or may not be needed, but all of the options can be performed as an outpatient procedure. With the insertion of implants or the use of Alloderm, incisions at the outer corners of the mouth are required for implantation. The incision opening will be closed after with dissolvable sutures. Injections of fat or medical-grade dermal fillers do not need incisions and will be implemented with a syringe. It may take several injections to get the desired fullness. Patients can expect the lips to be tender and sore for several days after the surgery. Scarring is very minimal with a lip augmentation surgery because the incision is placed on the outside of the mouth in the natural crease of the lips. Once healed, the incision is barely noticeable at all. Aftercare instructions will be given to properly care for the lips.

What can I expect After Lip Augmentation?

Lip implants are made with flexible, synthetic materials that are made to look and feel natural under the skin. With time, the lips will not look swollen and the implant will integrate with the natural tissues and fibers of the lip. Patients who do not like their lip implants or change their mind in time can have them removed. Fat grafting and dermal filler injections will slowly absorb into the body and thus the lips will naturally become smaller. Repeated treatments will be needed to maintain results.

Lip Augmentation FAQ

How much does lip augmentation cost?
Your cost for augmentation will be based on several factors, including whether you choose implants, fillers, or a fat transfer. In your consultation with Dr. Ho, he will create your treatment plan before calculating your costs. Beyond Beautiful accepts many payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing to make your treatment easy to afford.

Can I get the lips of a specific celebrity?
Many patients come in and request the full, sexy lips of a celebrity. Bringing in pictures of lips you like will help Dr. Ho understand your goals, but it can be unrealistic to create the lips of another person. At your first appointment, Dr. Ho will listen to your goals before discussing your choices (implants, dermal fillers, or a fat transfer) to augment your lips. After that, he will create your custom treatment plan.

Should I get implants, a fat transfer, or fillers?
Based on your specific needs and goals, Dr. Ho can help you decide between implants, dermal fillers, and a fat transfer for your lip augmentation. If you are uncertain about what you want or don't want surgery, dermal fillers may be your best choice. You can become comfortable with Dr. Ho and decide how much volume you want before moving on to a more invasive but longer-lasting procedure. At your initial consultation, Dr. Ho can discuss the pros and cons of all your choices, so you can decide which one you want.

Do lip implants look fake?
Implants are made with a silicone material that feels and looks natural. With his years of training, Dr. Ho performs lip augmentation — so your results will appear natural but still impressive. During your consultation, he will discuss the size and shape of upper and/or lower implants to achieve your needs and goals. In 2 – 3 months, your implants will get into their final position, and the inflammation will subside — so you may see your results.

Is lip augmentation reversible?
Usually, most patients are very pleased with their results. Although, if you're unhappy with your results, you may opt to have your lip implants removed. If you're uncertain about implants, Dr. Ho may suggest fillers since they are less invasive. For dermal fillers, the gel solution will slowly absorb into your body over time, which means that your lips will naturally become smaller.
