Face & Neck / Lip Augmentation

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, lifted and/or plumper lips for the ultimate pout! It can also improve fine lines, wrinkles and a droopy mouth. There are multiple methods to enhance lips, from fillers to surgery.

Am I a candidate for lip augmentation/enhancement by injection or Implant?

You may be considered a good candidate if your answer is yes to any of the following questions:

  • Do you feel like your lips don’t match – one is bigger than the other?
  • Are your lips flat/dull or thin?
  • Is there something you don’t like about your smile that involves your lips?
  • Does your lip “sag” due to aging and collagen loss?
  • Are you losing your lip line as you get older? (Cosmetic Tattooing is also
    available for lost lip liner or dull lips)
  • Do you just want to have sexy fuller lips?

What are the results?

The results will vary depending on what your goals are and what procedure you choose. Hyaluronic fillers are the most popular choices to enhance lips. Fillers are the best start to make sure you like the effect before any permanent choices are made. Fillers are also used to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. All results will definitely be more youthful!

What can I expect?

The first few days after any procedure will involve swelling and possible bruising. The swelling will distort the lips and not be your final result. However, within a few days, when swelling decreases, a beautiful mouth emerges like a swan!

What are my options?

Three effective methods to enhance or augment lips are available: injectables, implants, or a surgical lift. Beginning with filler, Dr.Collini uses all types of hyaluronic acid injectables. This plethora includes, Juvederm, Perlane/Restylane, Revance’ RHA Collection, Belotero and more. Lip fillers are used to correct symmetry issues and bring fullness to the lips. They improve the loss of volume that comes with aging. The results are natural-looking and reduce the effects of aging and fine lines from smoking. The effects last for about 6-months and prices start at $500/syringe. The type of filler discussion occurs at the time of consultation.

Lip implants are the best solution for permanent fuller lips. Patients usually decide on lip implants once they have experienced fillers. During the consultation, the size of the implant is decided. Most patients request size “large”. Slight swelling and soreness are common, as well as some bruising. This procedure results in natural-looking, permanent full lips.

The surgical lip lift is an excellent choice for those whose smile doesn’t show much of their teeth or are experiencing the appearance of sagging in the lips. This procedure is performed by making an incision under the nose and lifting the lip via skin excision. The procedure shortens the distance between the nose and the lip, rolling out the outer edge of the upper lip, and exposing more “surface area” of the lip.

A grin lip lift procedure is a good option for patients whose lips have turned “downward” and are seeking to lift the corners of their upper lift

“In every picture taken of myself, I was unhappy with my top lip. It was always flat compared to my bottom lip. I loved my bottom lip, but I just needed more fullness on my top lip to make them match. I told Dr. Collini, “just a little bit!” And he complied. He only did two small injections on both sides of my upper lip and it was the PERFECT match!! I couldn’t be more thrilled. It’s been 6 months now and I can still see a difference. I love what he did, and when it wears off, I will be back!” – Rachel, a happy client!

“I never really cared about my lips until Kylie Jenner became so famous with hers. I started noticing in photos that my upper lip was super flat. I went back and forth with the idea of filler in just my upper lip for so long. Finally, I went to Dr. Collini and he and his staff made me feel like I WOULD STILL BE ME even with filer. This was super important to me as I did not want to look fake. He just did 4 little needle marks on my top lip and instantly I could see a difference! It was so amazing. And in photos I just look so much more symmetrical. I did swell later on, but that did not last long and the results were worth it! I will definitely be back and would recommend Dr. Collini any time!” – Carrie, One Happy Client!
