What is Lip Augmentation?
Whether you have always had thin lips or you've lost volume in your lips over time, lip augmentation can help create a more shapely, fuller pout. Surgical lip enhancement can be accomplished with silicone implants, a fat transfer, or a lip lift (Vermilion Advancement) to give you the look you desire with long-lasting results. If you prefer nonsurgical lip enhancement, there are several injectable fillers that can temporarily add volume to your mouth for a fuller look. If you're interested in surgical or nonsurgical augmentation, contact Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Duluth, GA to schedule an appointment for a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang. With his help, you can develop a unique treatment plan for lip augmentation.

What are the benefits of lip augmentation?
Thin or aging lips can make you feel self-conscious about your facial features. Lip augmentation restores fullness to your lips, giving you an attractive and more youthful appearance. Patients at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery have seen success with this procedure and report the following benefits:
- Safe: When performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, lip augmentation is a safe procedure with minimal risks.
- Effective: Lip augmentation can effectively add volume to your lips, giving you the fuller pout you desire.
- Natural-looking results: Dr. Mang uses the latest techniques to achieve natural results that blend in with the rest of your face.
Can I Get a Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation, both surgical and nonsurgical, can help give you fuller lips and a better shape to your mouth. Based on your concerns and goals, you can select lip augmentation surgery for lasting results or injectable dermal fillers that have little to no recovery time. Dr. Mang can help you make the decision about what is best for your specific desires. If you're still unsure, it may be helpful to begin with dermal fillers to understand how different amounts of volume look and then get lip augmentation surgery. If you are in good health, you may be an ideal candidate for upper and/or lower lip augmentation at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery if you:
- Have naturally thin lips
- Have age-related volume loss in the lips
- Have asymmetrical or uneven lips
- Want to balance the overall appearance of your face
What Are My Lip Augmentation Options?
The approach taken during the procedure will vary, depending on your goals and the treatment plan you created with Dr. Mang.
- Lip Implants
A small incision is created at the corner of your mouth, then the lip implant(s) will be inserted. It can take a few weeks for the implant(s) to settle into their final position and any swelling to subside, but lip implants will create results that last for years.
- Fat Transfer
First, fat will be extracted from your thighs or other areas of your body that have excess fat using liposuction. This fat will then be purified and injected into your upper and/or lower lips until we've reached your desired fullness. Lip enhancement with a fat transfer can be repeated to sustain or enhance your lips, but generally, your results will last for many years.
- Lip Lift/Vermilion Advancement
During a lip lift, a very small incision is made on the lower and/or upper border of your lip. An area of skin outside the lips will be removed, then your lips will be adjusted to replace the excised skin and stitched into their new position. This lip advancement surgery creates long-lasting improvements to the shape and size of the lips.
- Dermal Fillers
Minimally invasive lip enhancement can be achieved with dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM or Restylane. Injections can be performed in one of our private treatment rooms as an outpatient procedure. Based on the dermal filler chosen, a local anesthetic may be part of the formula or numbing cream may be applied on the treated area. Once your lips are cleaned, several injections will be made and the filler will be massaged to give better results. You will be allowed to leave after your procedure to continue your regular routine.
What Can I Expect After My Lip Augmentation?
Dr. Mang will send you home with at-home care instructions. It's vital to follow these instructions in order to have optimal healing and the best results. Whether you had nonsurgical or surgical lip augmentation, your mouth will most likely feel sore or tender for several days. With a fat transfer, you can expect the area where the fat was extracted to also be sore. Cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medications can help with swelling and discomfort. The results of a dermal filler can last for around 3 – 12 months, depending on the injectable selected for your procedure. Natural aging can impact both surgical and nonsurgical results in time so talk to Dr. Mang about maintenance sessions that can refresh your results.
Lip Augmentation FAQ
How much does lip augmentation cost?
The cost of augmentation will vary based on a number of factors, including whether you are getting implants, a fat transfer, or dermal fillers. During your consultation with Dr. Mang, he will develop your treatment plan before discussing your estimated cost. Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery takes a variety of payment options, and we can help you find low-interest medical financing to make your treatment easier to afford.
Can I get the lips of a specific celebrity?
You might come in and request the full, sexy lips of an actor or actress. Having photos of what you want will help Dr. Mang understand your goals; however, it may be unrealistic to get the exact shape and appearance of another person. At your consultation, Dr. Mang will listen to your goals before talking about your choices (dermal fillers, a fat transfer, or implants) to augment your lips. After that, he will develop your custom treatment plan.
Should I get implants, a fat transfer, or fillers?
Depending on your specific needs and goals, Dr. Mang will help you decide between dermal fillers, implants, and a fat transfer for your augmentation. If you are unsure about what you want or nervous about an invasive procedure, injectable fillers may be a better choice. Once you become comfortable with the process and determine the amount of volume you want before proceeding to a more invasive but longer-lasting procedure. At your initial consultation, Dr. Mang will explain the benefits and drawbacks of each of your options so you can choose which is best for you.
Do lip implants look fake?
Lip implants are made with a flexible material that is designed to look and feel natural. With his years of experience and training, Dr. Mang performs lip augmentation so your outcomes will look natural but beautiful. During your initial consultation, he will go over the size and shape of lower and/or upper lip implants to match your needs and goals. After 2 – 3 months, your implants will get into their final position, and the swelling will be gone — so you may enjoy your results.
Is lip augmentation reversible?
Typically, most patients are very pleased with their lip augmentation. However, if you're not happy with your outcomes, you may opt to have your implants taken out. If you are uncertain about implants, Dr. Mang may suggest injectable fillers since they are less invasive. With injectable fillers, the formula will eventually absorb into the body over time, so your lips will naturally return to their normal appearance.
