Whether you have noticed the fullness in your lips beginning to fade over time, or you weren’t born with full, plump lips, a lip augmentation procedure can help. Adding fullness to lips also has a positive effect on surrounding facial tissue. Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth are often minimized, and the overall facial appearance is enhanced.

Results may vary.
Dr. Manuel Peña helps women achieve plump, kissable lips at his Naples, Florida practice. There are multiple options available to enhance the lips. Some are temporary options (assorted dermal filler injections) with results that typically last around a year, fat grafting (fat transfer) to the lips lasts around 5 years, and surgical lip implants which should not need to be repeated as the results are lasting.*
Lip Augmentation with Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers or collagen injections can create a temporary natural look for your lips. With lip injections, re-treatment will be needed to maintain optimal results. Dr. Peña can explain which filler would best treat your needs in order to best meet your aesthetic goals.
Here are the lip injection treatments offered at Peña Plastic Surgery:
The FDA-approved TEOSYAL® product, RHA® 2 adds volume to the lips and enhances the contour of your lips with long-lasting results. The Swiss-manufactured Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA®) fillers provide natural-looking results.
Restylane® Kysse™ is designed to augment lips, smooth the upper lip lines and enhance lip color. Designed with XpresHAn Technology™, Kysse™ allows a more natural, flexible movement.
Juvéderm® Ultra XC is an injectable gel that temporarily plumps thin lips. It is also approved to treat smile lines around the nose and mouth.
Lip Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Dr. Peña also performs fat transfer (fat grafting) lip augmentation, a treatment that uses a patient’s own fat cells to enhance and volumize the top and bottom lips.
Fat is typically harvested from the abdomen, purified, and transferred into the lips. Lips augmented with fat stay plump for around five years and sometimes even longer.* Because of the possibility of asymmetric take the possibility of this procedure requiring a revision is slightly higher!
Lip Augmentation with Implant
Lip implant surgery is another option. Dr. Peña will discuss this option if he feels it would be suitable to meet your goals. Fort Myers Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Manuel Peña can use a special, safe saline or silicone implant, a lasting solution to thin lips. The silicone implant option is great for patients who desire a long-term option and are seeking a lip augmentation that lasts many years.* This requires a surgical implantation procedure and thus carries a list of possible complications similar to breast implants. These include infection, malposition, palpability, and capsular contracture. Because the solid silicone implants are not really customizable certain shapes and contours may be more easily attained with injectable fillers.
Lip Augmentation Results
Proper placement of the implant or filler material is important in getting good results. Lip injections, fat transfer, and lip implants will all provide significantly more pouty lips and you will be able to see results right away. Dr. Peña has nearly 20 years of experience with facial rejuvenation procedures, including lip augmentation, and he understands how to apply his skills to get you highly personalized results.
