Fat Transfer to the Lips

Instead of using fillers, Dr. Chaboki can perform fat transfer for natural augmentation of the lips. Men and women with thin lips or a long upper lip or those seeking fuller lips are usually good candidates. Be aware that fat transfer involves swelling, bruising, stiffness, and chapped lips for a few weeks, while filler injections involve a few days of swelling. Because Dr. Chaboki is a facial plastic surgeon, many people combine rhinoplasty or other cosmetic procedures with their lip enhancement.

Lip Implants vs. Injections

Lip implants and filler injections each have pros and cons when it comes to lip enhancement. Both add volume to the lips and provide natural-looking results when performed by an experienced facial plastic surgeon. Other advantages of each option include:

  • Filler injections are better suited to reshaping the lips, can smooth away lip lines (smoker’s lines), involve minimal downtime, and can be reversed with hyaluronidase.
  • Lip implants last indefinitely and may save you money over having repeated filler injections.

Upper Lip Lift Surgery

The lips, especially the upper lip, develop excess skin and lengthen with age. An upper lip lift is a minor surgical procedure performed to remove this excess skin, which will help to restore a youthful lip. Upper lip lift surgery can be performed alone, or combined with other facial procedures, such as facelift or eyelid surgery.
