What is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation with injectable fillers can add volume for fuller, more defined lips. Additionally, it can be performed to address asymmetry, hydration, and fullness or restore lost volume to help the patient achieve their cosmetic goals. This procedure is a nonsurgical, quick treatment that can have you in and out of our office in mere minutes. Results typically last 6 - 12 months, depending on the type of filler that is used. If the patient has excess fat on another area of their body, a fat transfer usually provides the most natural results with the added benefit of minor liposuction to trim the body. At the patient's consultation, all the lip augmentation options will be presented, and together, the patient and medical provider will create a treatment plan.

What are the Types of Lip Augmentation?
Fat Filler: Also known as fat transfer, fat deposits are harvested from the patient’s own body by means of liposuction. These collected fats are purified and reinstated with tiny syringes into the lips. The doctor will take the extra measure of reinstating the fat tissues, slowly layering the filler to reshape the lips to meet the patient’s aesthetic desires.
Injectable Filler: This is a popular way to enhance the lips in a nonsurgical manner. Fillers are made from substances that are found naturally within the body, such the hyaluronic acid, which is a molecule that attracts water for plumping and hydration. The result looks and feels completely natural. Fillers produce beautiful results that can last up to 1 year.
Lip Augmentation Reviews
"Went for a consultation with my friend who is getting a lift and implant with dr. Nuveen and her lips done with Jessica. Jessica was so friendly and informative that I booked my appointment THAT day to have my lips done the next week! She showed us pics, showed us on our own face what the injections would do for my lips! And I am 3 days out from my procedure and I absolutely love them!!! I had NO lips before Jessica got ahold of me, and now I can wear lipstick and make the duck face without hesitation!! The procedure was quick and for the most part painless. She was clean and made sure I knew what she was doing the entire time. I will definitely be back as soon as possible to continue filling out my lips with her!!! 5 stars for the entire building and staff!!!"- K.N. / Google / Feb 01, 2016
"Absolutely love this place! Dr Nuveen and Kaylee & staff were amazing and went above and beyond to make it all a great experience! They were very helpful and friendly.

"I was super nervous about getting lip injections because I see so many that have been "overdone", but Doctor Caplin did an excellent job of making my lips look natural and subtle. "everyone will notice, but no one will know""- J.K. / Facebook / Mar 29, 2019
"I had the best experience with Jamie. I was apprehensive to let anyone put filler in my cheeks as I’d never had it done before. She is so light handed and gentle, was confident in her ability to reach my desired outcome & did just that. I’ve found my new aesthetics go to & have already gone back for lips and Botox! Thank you Jamie!!!!"- B.L. / Google / May 08, 2021
How is Lip Augmentation Performed?
First, you will have a topical numbing cream applied to the area. An ice pack may also be applied. This will make the procedure very comfortable. The substance will be injected using a small, fine needle directly into the lips by an experienced medical provider. You may need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results.
What Results Can I Expect from Lip Augmentation?
Injectable fillers require no anesthesia. However, a local numbing medication is used. After the procedure, the lips will be swollen, and there may be bruising present. This will go away after a few days, and the patient will instantly see the results of the treatment. It may take a few more weeks for the best results to show. We recommend applying ice to the area for the first few days to reduce swelling. Always use a soft garment, such as a towel, between your skin and the ice.
