What is Lip Augmentation?

Whether you have naturally thin lips or you are noticing less fullness in your lips as you get older, surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation may help create a more shapely and full mouth. Surgical lip augmentation may be accomplished with a fat transfer, silicone implants, or a vermilion advancement (lip lift) to obtain the shape you want. Surgical lip augmentation can provide amazing results that are long-lasting. For nonsurgical lip augmentation, there are many injectable fillers that can temporarily plump the lips for a fuller look. If you are interested in learning more about surgical or nonsurgical augmentation, contact VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV to schedule an initial consultation. Plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi and his skilled team will discuss all your choices and develop your personal lip augmentation treatment plan.

  • Lip implants
    For the most lasting results, silicone implants may be added to the upper and/or lower lips to enhance the volume and shape of your mouth.
  • Fat transfer
    By transferring fat from your body with liposuction and adding the processed fat back into the lips, you can get natural-looking improvements.
  • Lip lift/vermilion advancement
    This is a surgical technique that adjusts the borders of the upper and/or lower lips to expand the area and shape of the mouth.
  • Dermal fillers
    Injectables, including JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®, can add temporary volume to the lips and reduce the visibility of lip lines.

Who is a candidate for lip augmentation?

Nonsurgical or surgical lip enhancement can help give you more voluminous lips and a better mouth shape. Depending on your goals, you may decide on lip augmentation surgery for longer-lasting results or injectable fillers to avoid recovery time. It can be helpful to start with nonsurgical fillers to understand how different amounts of volume appear and then get lip augmentation surgery. Ideal candidates for lower and/or upper lip enhancement at VIP Plastic Surgery:

  • Have thin lips naturally or have lost lip volume with age
  • Have uneven or asymmetrical lips
  • Want to balance the overall appearance of their face
  • Have general good health

I just recently decided that I will get my lips "done" and I turned to the highly recommended Dr. Khorsandi at VIP Plastic Surgery. I was always hesitant to do anything to my face. I was afraid of "what if I don't like it"? Dr. Khorsandi put me at ease and reassured me that he will only do what I want to do. His staff was very accommodating and friendly, which made me feel very welcomed. He used Juvederm as a filler for my lips and the outcome was fabulous!! The first two days my lips were a bit bigger but once the swelling went down, my lips settled and I absolutely LOVE them!!

Dr K is a genius. He’s an absolute artist, down to earth, with the best staff. I never have to wait long and always get all of my questions answered. Dr Khorsandi made my lips so beautiful. They look stunning 3 months after Juvaderm. Mel does my facials and she’s incredible. My pores are smaller and my skin is radiant. I love that she was straightforward with my and told me what I needed rather than what I google searched. I HUGHLY recommend VIP!!!

Dr. Khorsandi is absolutely amazing! I was bit by a dog when I was 1 year old which left a scar on the right side of my upper lip, I had very little tissue on that side of my lip and no vermillion border. The scar left my lips unsymmetrical. I have been waiting 23 years to get my lip repaired but I have been hesitant because of the delicate area my scar is in. I have also done a lot of research looking for the right cosmetic surgeon for my issue, well I can finally say I found the right one! Although my scar may have not been visible to a stranger or may seem so subtle to some, I noticed it every single day of my life and it really lowered my self confidence. I can now say I am in tears of joy looking at my newly repaired lip. The juvederm in which Dr. Khorsandi injected was subtle but it made a dramatic difference in the appearance of my lips. It made the right side of my lip just as plump as my left, and he almost sculpted a vermillion border on my right upper lip. I am 1 day post injections and have very little to no swelling and no bruising! I would recommend Dr. Khorsandi to anyone. Did I mention his bedside manor and sense of humor are the best? He made me laugh, and feel comfortable. The girls in the office are just as amazing! Thank you VIP plastic surgery

The staff was incredibly friendly from start to finish.    Dr. Khorsandi was very professional. This was my first time getting lip fillers so I was extremely nervous but everyone was very comforting and understanding. Love the final product will definitely be going back.

How Does Lip Augmentation Work?

The approach taken during the procedure will vary, depending on the chosen course of treatment:

  • Lip implants
    A thin incision is created at the corner of the lips so the implant(s) can be inserted below the skin. It may take 1 – 3 weeks for the implant(s) to settle into the final position and any swelling to subside; however, implants in the lips will give you improvements that are long-lasting.
  • Fat transfer
    With a fat transfer, liposuction will extract fat from your thighs or other areas of your body that have excess fat. The fat will be cleaned and re-injected into your lips until the desired fullness is reached. Since some fat may be reabsorbed after the surgery, your lips may be filled a little more to compensate for this loss. Lip augmentation with a fat transfer may be repeated over time to enhance or sustain your lips, but generally, your results will last for several years.
  • Lip lift/vermilion advancement
    For this surgical lip enhancement, a very small incision is made on the upper and/or lower line of the lip. A small area of skin outside the mouth will be removed so the lips can be stretched to replace the excised skin and stitched in place. This lip advancement surgery gives long-lasting results that improve the size and shape of the lips.
  • Dermal fillers
    Minimally invasive lip augmentation can be done with injectable dermal fillers, such as Restylane or JUVÉDERM. Injections can be performed in one of our treatment rooms as an outpatient procedure. Based on the brand of dermal filler used, a local anesthetic may be in the formula or a numbing cream can be applied on the lips before the treatment. Once your lips are cleaned, several injections will be administered in the selected areas of the lips and then the filler will be massaged to create even results. You should be allowed to leave immediately after your treatment to resume your normal activities.

What Can I Expect After Lip Augmentation?

It's important to pay attention to all aftercare instructions given by our team to achieve optimal healing and the best results. After either a surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation, your mouth will most likely feel sore or tender for a few days. With a fat transfer, you should expect the area where the fat was extracted to be tender also. Cold compresses and nonprescription pain medications are suggested to alleviate any inflammation and discomfort. The results of nonsurgical lip augmentation may be visible anywhere from 3 – 12 months based on the brand selected for the treatment. Surgical lip augmentation will provide lasting improvements, but the natural aging process will continue and can alter your results over time. Talk to Dr. Khorsandi and his team about maintenance treatments that can refresh your lips.
