Full juicy lips with red lipstick. Lip enhancement options both invasive and noninvasive via Gardner Plastic Surgery

Your Suite Of Lip Enhancement Options

The lips may be one of the smaller body parts that people seek to enhance through plastic surgery, but there are numerous lip augmentation procedure options to choose from to tailor the results sought. Whether through injectable fillers or by more long-lasting surgical procedures, Dr. Paul M. Gardner or Dr. Leo M. Baccaro can use their cosmetic surgery artistry to help you enhance your lips to give them the shape, fullness, smoothness, softness, youthful look, and sex appeal you want. Read on to learn which lip procedure might meet your aesthetic needs.

Reasons for Seeking Lip Enhancement

Most women seek out lip augmentation options because they feel that their lips are too thin, whether through genetics or due to natural lip thinning as we age. Age-related lip thinning typically comes with wrinkles, which often adds to a woman’s unhappiness with the look of their lips. Some women are also dissatisfied by the shape of their lips, or otherwise want to better balance out the face with fuller lips or achieve a certain look. Whatever the reason, Gardner Plastic Surgery has numerous options that can help women get plump, fuller lips that will make them feel more youthful.

Minimally Invasive Lip Augmentation at Gardner Plastic Surgery

Lip augmentation options at Gardner Plastic Surgery consist of non-invasive injectable fillers or surgical implants, lifts, grafts, and re-contouring. Injectable fillers for the lips have grown immensely popular in recent years and represent the easiest option for quickly enhancing the look of your lips. The in-office procedure takes just minutes and there is no significant downtime needed for recovery. The one drawback is that injectable fillers typically only last from six to nine months and need to be refreshed to maintain results.

Gardner Plastic Surgery, and its sister Naples-based medical spa, Tru Glō Medspa, rely on Juvéderm Ultra XC, Juverderm Volbella, and Restylane Silk as their primary injectable fillers for lip enhancement. These dermal fillers utilize hyaluronic acid, a natural occurring compound produced by the body that helps stimulate hydration and enhances results. Juvéderm Ultra XC serves as a thicker filler solution, which allows it to replenish more volume to deep wrinkles than most other dermal fillers. Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk, which was developed specifically for lip augmentation and smoothing, relies on a thinner filler solution for more detailed and finer plumping and wrinkle smoothing.

Surgical Lip Augmentation Options

Surgical lip augmentation options rely on different methods for a more permanent enhancement of lip fullness and smoothing. Given the surgery, these procedures typically take much more time than injectable fillers and require the need for recovery downtime. Surgical lip augmentation options at Gardner Plastic Surgery include:

  • Fat Transfer—uses surgery to extract fat from elsewhere in your body, which is then injected into the lips to achieve the desired fullness.
  • Dermal Graft—a dermal fat graft is surgically implanted under the lip lining to add volume and plumpness.
  • Vermillion Advancement—relies on removing skin bordering the lips and pulling the lip area into that space to increase lip area.
  • Implants (synthetic or natural)—inserted through incisions in the lips where needed for plumping and firming
  • Lip Lift—used to increase the lift on the upper lip by shortening the skin between the lips and nose.
