Women with plump lips

Lip Augmentation

The fuller lips you desire may be achieved with lip enhancement. For patients with thin lips, a fuller appearance may be accomplished. Lip enhancement also is designed to create a defined lip edge and overall younger looking lips. 

These procedures can be done with either local anesthesia or local and intravenous sedation. During consultation, the doctors will discuss the option best for you.


Perma Lip Augmentation

Perma Lip Augmentation can achieve a naturally contoured lip that can withstand the sands of time, unlike dermal filler procedures that need to be enhanced every few months to maintain optimum results.  The FDA approved implant is a soft, solid silicone product designed to prevent rupture and deflation. A variety of sizes are available to provide our patients with an opportunity to achieve the naturally contoured result patients are looking for. The procedure is done in the office under a local anesthetic. Patients can resume their normal activities the following day. 

Dermal Fillers

Made from hyaluronic acid naturally found in our bodies, dermal fillers can be used to rejuvenate and reshape the face. Since hyaluronic acid is found in our skin, these fillers tend to have a longer lasting effect. Several brands of dermal fillers are currently available in the United States.

Additional Treatment Options


Autologous Fat

This procedure harvests fat through mini-liposuction and re-injects it into the lips. In addition to the implementation of some fat cells, new collagen and fibroblasts are stimulated.


Alloderm is donor tissue with all of the viable cells removed. Using local anesthesia, it can be placed into the body of the lip to create volume and/or into the vermilion to add definition. An alloderm implant is soft and long lasting. Studies have shown that your cells will attach and grow into the implant. After several years, part of the product may be absorbed.


Softform is an updated form of Gortex. A hollow tube of Gortex is inserted into the lips using local anesthesia. Insertion will enhance vermilion border, but does not provide large volume correction. As long as the implant is in place, Softform results are long lasting.
