Lip Enhancement Basics


Do you desire fuller, more radiantly luscious lips? Want more defined lips? Lip augmentation, typically performed with either implants or tiny needle injections directly into the target area, may be the key to achieving your cosmetic facial goals.


For more than two decades, Dr. Paul M. Parker and his team have delivered quality cosmetic enhancements. Utilizing both state-of-the-art surgical procedures, as well as non-invasive methods, Dr. Parker has performed countless aesthetic upgrades that not only improve the way people look, but how they feel.

In lieu of collagen filler, doctors have gravitated more toward Hyaluronic acid fillers, a substance formed naturally in your body. These fillers are generally considered safer and longer lasting, with effects lasting as long as six months. Clients often return for follow up visits to maintain their desired look. Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and contours the lip’s tissue.


Other lip augmentation procedures can be performed with fat injections or implants to plump up the lips.
Both procedures are more intensive than the typical injection methods. A fat injection requires the extraction of fatty cells from your own body and reinsertion into your lips. Fat injection results typically last one year or more.  An implant is a permanent lip augmentation procedure performed under local anesthesia.

Many lip enhancement procedures are paired with face lifts and/or chin implant insertions. Call Dr. Parker today to schedule a consultation or to find out more information about lip augmentation. Why wait? Get the lips you’ve always wanted.
