What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances lip size, shape, and overall appearance. Lip enhancements can be achieved through various techniques, including non-surgical methods like autologous fat transfer, lip fillers, and surgical intervention, such as lip implants or lip lifts. Each treatment offers unique benefits and is custom-tailored to the individual. 

Why Patients Choose Lip Augmentation

Every year, thousands of Americans turn to lip augmentation. Here are some of the top reasons we’ve heard from patients looking to achieve the feeling of personal beauty inside and out:

Fuller Lips

Many individuals desire plumper lips for a more youthful and attractive appearance. Lip augmentation can add volume to thin lips, enhancing their shape and giving them a fuller, more luscious look.

Correct Asymmetry

If your lips are naturally uneven or asymmetrical, lip augmentation can help balance their appearance. By adding volume to one side or adjusting the shape, lip augmentation can create a more harmonious look.

Reduce Fine Lines

As we age, fine lines and wrinkles can develop around the lips, commonly known as “lipstick lines” or “smoker’s lines.” Lip augmentation can smooth these lines.

Create Proportionality

Well-proportioned lips can contribute to overall facial harmony and balance. Increasing lip volume creates a more attractive balance among your facial features.

Boost Confidence

For many, lip augmentation enhances physical appearance and self-confidence. Fuller, shapelier lips can make you feel more attractive and confident.

Luscious Lips: No Surgery Required

Antony Institute offers state-of-the-art, non-surgical solutions for individuals looking to enhance their image through lip augmentation. Non-surgical services we provide include:

  • Lipo-filling: Lipofilling, or autologous fat injections, involves harvesting fat from another area of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs, purifying the fat cells, and injecting it into the lips to add volume. This method offers soft, long-lasting results and the added benefit of removing unwanted fat from another body area.
  • Lip Fillers: Lip fillers, also known as dermal fillers, involve injecting a medical-grade, hyaluronic acid-based filler into the lips or surrounding areas to enhance volume, define borders, and improve symmetry. 

Long-Lasting Lip Enhancements

The results of lip augmentation vary depending on the technique used. Results from lipo-filling (natural fat transfer) can last several years or longer as the transferred fat integrates into the natural lip structure. The results of lip fillers typically last 6-12 months, with touch-up treatments recommended to maintain optimal results.

What Is the Recovery Time?

Before the procedure, Dr. Anu Antony will meet with you to establish your personal aesthetic goals for your lips and recommend the best approach. Once ready to start the treatment, you will receive gentle topical anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the injections. The injections are performed with precision, using a very fine needle. The recovery time for lip augmentation varies depending on the technique used:

  • After lipofilling, patients may experience mild swelling and bruising at the fat donor site and lips, which typically resolves within a week. They can return home the same day and engage in moderate physical activity without issue. 
  • Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after receiving lip fillers. Some initial redness, swelling, or bruising may occur after the procedure, but this subsides in a few days to a week.
