Enlarging Lips

Hi Melair

It is helpful to have photo's to look at, however here are some options for you.

Lip fillers provide an effective temporary solution to help volumize your lips. Dermal filler injections add volume to the lips and typically last around 4-6 months. In some cases duration of the effects can be a bit shorter or longer. It would be best to start with these, to get a feel for how big you want to go. Then you may want to go on to a more permanent solution. Permalip™ are revolutionary lip implants that are designed to look and feel natural, yet enhance your lip volume to your desired size. It does not deflate, degrade or rupture over time. Although it’s permanent, it is designed for the ease of placement if a patient wishes to achieve a larger or smaller enhancement or even return to the lips original appearance. It does not limit lip movement and provides a natural look.

Have a think, do your research and find a qualified and experienced surgeon.

Lip filler for augmentation and symmetry

I typically recommend Juvederm or Restylane to my patients seeking a natural augmentation with improved symmetry. A sculptural approach with filler allows for more precise results over other treatments and lasts an average of six months. Many patients retain volume from initial treatments and need less product over time.

You should start out with 1cc of filler and go from there. You do not want to overdo too much filler in the lips. It also depends on the look you are going for too. You can always add more filler to the lips if needed. Just remember if you are going to do your lips and you do not want to bruise you should not take any aspirins or anything that will thin the blood since brusing can occur.

Filler is great to enlarge and even out lips

HA fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane Silk are fillers which are used to enhance lips.They last from 4-6 months. Small asymmetries can be corrected with these fillers. I prefer HA fillers over fat because there is much more precision with the fillers.

Can anything be done to even out lips and enlarge them?

Thank you for your excellent question. In many cases of subtle lip asymmetry dermal fillers can be used to make corrections for volume and contour. Depending on your desires, minimally invasive procedures such as botox and fillers can be used to improve lip appearance.  Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation, they can help you make the best decision.

Lip Augmentation

Thanks for your question. This is a question that we get asked often by our patients. In my professional experience, it is possible to consistently gain better symmetry and overall shape of lips with injection of hyaluronic acid lip fillers as it allows you to completely reverse the results if you do not like them.  While these are temporary (lasting about 6 months) they are quick, simple and have minimal pain or down time. For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with dermal filler and hyaluronic acid cosmetic injections.
