lip augmentation

Lips play an important role in defining the aesthetics of our face. Every lip type has its own beauty. Even though, the type of our lips is based on genetics, we still can enhance its features with the right care and professional approach. To an extend, we also can get the desired shape of our lips surgically, to make them look more attractive.

As we grow older, the lips that were once full and voluptuous become thin and develop vertical wrinkles, making the face look aged. Cosmetic lip augmentaion or lip enhancement is a procedure that enhances the appearance, shape, and size of the lips of an individual. It involves the enlargement and reshaping of otherwise normal lips to improve their dimensional relation with the patient’s nose, teeth, and surrounding facial structures. The appearance of the lips is determined by the spatial relation of the lip structures with the teeth in a 3-dimensional space and by their function during animation and speech. The most attractive lip measurements considered in women is a lip surface area making up 9. 6% of the lower third of the face and an upper/lower lip ratio of 1:2.



Cosmetic lip augmentation is the procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips.

Lip augmentation can be done in two ways:
  • Lip Injections or non-surgical lip augmentation: In this procedure, lip augmentation is done using dermal filler injections, where no incisions are required. There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected into your lips and around the mouth. The most commonly used filler to increase the volume in your lips is Hyaluronic acid, which also is a natural substance found in the body. Collagen and Fat injections are other options to plump lips, but they aren’t used as much today because the results vary and they last lesser period of time.
  • Lip implants: It provides results that are more permanent than dermal fillers but also require two small incisions through which the implants are inserted and positioned in the lips. The procedure is performed in about an hour and requires numbing the area. In some cases, implants and dermal fillers may be combined for a more comprehensive treatment.

What to Expect During the Procedure?


Injectable lip augmentation techniques can be performed quickly in FMS SKIN CLINICS with little to no downtime. Fat injection is the exception, since the procedure requires a small area of liposuction to remove the fat from another part of your body before the injection is done.

Dermal fillers are injected using an ultra-thin needle into points along the outline of the lips. Before the injections, a topical or local numbing agent may be applied to ease discomfort. Sometimes, nerve block injections can be given before the treatment to completely numb the lips. After carefully marking the areas to be injected, very fine needles are used to inject the substance into your lips. You should be able to notice the difference immediately.

Following injection, ice may be given to ease discomfort and control swelling. Post injection, no firm pressure should be put on the treatment area. Lipstick or other lip products are best avoided immediately after the procedure.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers for lip augmentation

Hyaluronic acid fillers attracts and binds with water, further increasing the lip volume through natural hydration. Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips. They can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:
  • Shape
  • Structure
  • Volume

The effects typically last around six months to year and half. After that more injections may be needed to keep the volume of your lips. There are several hyaluronic acid fillers available at FMS SKIN CLINICS and some contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

  • Control over lip volume. The amount of substance injected can be controlled, so the doctor has better control over how much lip volume is created.
  • Gradual pace of treatment. The injections can be given gradually during different appointments until the desired results are achieved.
  • Bumps dissolve easily. Any lumps and bumps created by movement of the lips can be dissolved easily.
  • Less bruising. There may be less bruising and swelling compared to other dermal fillers.
  • Reasonably lasting results. The results are reasonably long-lasting, but not permanent.
  • Allergic reactions are unlikely, because hyaluronic acid fillers are made from substances similar to those found in the body.
