Not Too Big, Not Too Small: We’ll Help You Create Lips that Are Just Right

When it comes to the ideal lip size, there is certainly a window of perfection. Lips that are too small fade away and go unnoticed. Lips that are too large can steal the show, overpowering the other facial features or looking fake or overdone. Dr. Singleton strives to achieve an ideal balance with each lip augmentation he performs. He crafts lips that are beautifully shaped, perfectly sized, and a pleasing complement to the other facial features. Surely, you’ve seen overfilled “duck lips”, the result of an overly enthusiastic filler treatment.  Don’t worry, our lip augmentation results are very natural looking.

Lip Augmentation Using Dermal Fillers

Injectable fillers are one of the most popular options for lip augmentation. The treatment is quick and non-surgical, making it an ideal choice for patients who don’t want to miss work. Results are smooth with a natural look and feel.

The largest downside to using dermal fillers for lip augmentation is that the results are temporary. Patients will need to come in every 4-6 months to receive another set of injections. We do our best to make this as easy as possible. The touchup process is quick and Dr. Singleton always strives to ensure patients are seen promptly.

At Capital Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Singleton performs all injectable treatments himself. You’ll meet with him before the procedure to discuss your aesthetic goals. He is a skilled injector with specialized training in the products we use. We use Juvéderm® and Restylane® fillers, both containing hyaluronic acid, for our lip injections.

Common Questions About Using Fillers for Lip Augmentation

We love answering patient questions. If you have questions about fillers and lip augmentation, come in for a consultation or give us a call. We won’t pressure you into choosing treatment if it isn’t the right fit for you. We provide information about the procedures we offer, but the final decision is yours to make.

Many patients worry about receiving multiple injections into the delicate skin on lips. Most patients wouldn’t describe the treatment as comfortable, but find it very tolerable. The fillers we use often contain lidocaine for a more comfortable injection experience. The whole treatment takes just about 10 minutes.

 Patients will see their results immediately after treatment. Some swelling is common at first but should resolve in a few days.

Dermal fillers are long lasting. Our lip enhancement patients usually enjoy their results for 4-6 months per treatment.

Surgical Lip Augmentation

A more permanent option for lip augmentation can involve a surgical procedure to lift the lip into a higher, more full position. Using an incision that is hidden under the nose, a sub-nasal lip lift can enhance lip fullness and projection. This procedure can usually be done in the office with local anesthesia only, and be performed with minimal downtime afterwards.

Post-procedure patients will likely have swelling in the surgical area and upper lip for approximately 1-2 weeks.
