What Is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation entails the enlargement and reshaping of otherwise normal lips, to improve its dimensional relation with the other features such as the nose, teeth, eyes, and surrounding facial structures. It is a simple non-surgical procedure that defines your lips by giving them shape, structure, and volume. In simple words, it is a cosmetic procedure that will provide you with fuller and plumper lips that are more defined.

Surgical intervention to enhance the appearance of the lips was very popular in the 90s. Lip augmentation was done using substances such as autologin, collagen, radiance, and gore-tex implants that were used to add volume to the lips. As innovation was introduced into the industry, fat transfer and fillers came into the picture. Fillers that once used collagen have limited use now and are replaced by hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Lip augmentation has come a long way in offering pleasing aesthetics to everyone using non-surgical methods.

What Are The Types Of Lip Augmentation?

Both men and women undergo several cosmetic surgeries and procedures in an attempt to achieve their ideal appearance. Lip augmentation is just one such procedure that can change how you look. At Vilate Med Spa, we use a non-surgical approach to define your lips and create the look and feel that best complements your face. There are several options to choose from when it comes to getting the most professional lip augmentation Salt Lake City and Bountiful have to offer its residents.

Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are a series of injections such as JUVÉDERM® that shape and plump up your lips and make them look fuller. They are a semi-permanent or temporary solution for lip augmentation and the effects last for seven to eight months. Fillers are usually made from hyaluronic acid and are injected into both the upper and lower lips, using a microneedle. At Vilate Med Spa, your doctor will first assess your facial balance to define the shape and symmetry of your lips. A treatment plan is then made to determine which areas of your lips need fillers. Lip filler augmentation is an in-house procedure and a short process that does not take more than fifteen minutes. You can also go back to your day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Lip Augmentation?

You are a lip filler candidate if you want fuller, more shapely lips. Some patients are just looking for subtle enhancements while others want to transform their thin lips into a much fuller pout. Whichever one is right for you, it’s important you are committed to adding volume to your lips.

When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Jason Johnson will determine the best product for your lips. JUVÉDERM and Restylane® are both hyaluronic acid fillers that create soft and subtle volumes in the spots you need it most.

Lip Augmentation FAQ

How much does lip augmentation cost?
Costs for augmentation will vary based on the type of filler chosen and the number of injections needed to reach your goals. In your consultation with Dr. Johnson, he will create your treatment plan and discuss your costs. Vilate Med Spa takes a variety of payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing to make your procedure affordable.

Can I get the lips of a specific celebrity?
You might come in asking for the full, sexy lips of a celebrity. Bringing in photos of lips you want will help us understand your goals, but it may be difficult to create the exact shape and appearance of someone else. At your first appointment, we will listen to your wants before discussing your options for lip augmentation. From there, we will work with you to craft your custom treatment plan.

Is lip augmentation with fillers better than implants? 
Lip augmentation with implants can provide long-lasting dramatic results. However, so can lip augmentation with dermal fillers. If you are unsure about what you want or nervous about an invasive procedure, dermal fillers might be a better choice. When you get more comfortable with the process and determine how much volume you would like, you can consider a more invasive procedure like lip implants or a fat transfer. During your initial consultation, Dr. Johnson will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of all your options, so you may choose which is best for you.

How long will the results last?
The longevity of your results will depend on the type of filler used. For some people, results may last for a year or longer, while others might want a repeat treatment after a few months. Touch-up injections are available at our practice in order to sustain your results.
