What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a set of popular cosmetic enhancement procedures that can make your lips appear fuller, while also working to reduce the types of fine lines and wrinkles that become visible during the aging process.

Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS is a board-certified plastic surgeon, specializing in lip augmentation in Newport Beach. If you think lip augmentation might be the perfect procedure for you, reach out and set up your consultation to learn more about this incredible treatment option.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Augmentation?

During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Wirth, he’ll go over your cosmetic goals and work closely with you to determine whether lip augmentation is an ideal choice for you. You should come prepared to discuss your medical history, drug allergies, current medications, and social habits.

You’re likely a great candidate for lip augmentation if you:

  • Possess good overall physical and emotional health
  • Are bothered by the shape or fullness of your lips due to age or heredity
  • Have fine lines or creases around your lips

How Does Lip Augmentation Work?

Lip augmentation varies, depending on your specific goals. During your consultation, Dr. Wirth will work with you to determine which method is best for you.

Lip augmentation in Newport Beach is typically performed using some type of dermal filler, with some of the most common options being hyaluronic acids like JUVÉDERM®, as well as collagen or fat injections.

Prior to your procedure, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed and a dental block or topical anesthetic will be used to numb your lips. Dr. Wirth will then use a very fine syringe or cannula, specific to your procedure, to inject filler or fat into the treatment area(s). Dr. Wirth may need to briefly massage the treatment area to ensure proper contour, with the entire procedure typically taking less than 30 minutes to complete.

What Happens After Lip Augmentation?

Recovery from lip augmentation is relatively fast. It’s fairly common for patients to experience some swelling and soreness in the treatment area for a few days, and your lips might also feel fuller than expected immediately following your treatment. This feeling will subside as the anesthetic wears off and as swelling reduces and you mentally adjust to the results of your lip augmentation.

Love the Way Your Lips Look

The results of your lip augmentation will not be permanent. Most lip augmentation procedures can last for up to six months or longer with the new injectables or be permanent with fat injections, and the duration of your results will vary depending upon the method you have chosen.

If an injectable filler was used, your body will gradually reabsorb the material, a process that is expedited in facial regions that experience a lot of movement. Regular maintenance treatments can be scheduled with Dr. Wirth to prolong the results of your lip augmentation in Newport Beach.
