About Lip Augmentation

If you have always had thin lips or you experienced volume loss because of age, lip augmentation can help you attain a fuller, more shapely mouth. To increase the volume of your lips, we use innovative fat transfer techniques. Lip augmentation with fat grafting can provide natural-looking results that last for years. If you want to learn more about lip augmentation, please contact New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana to schedule an appointment with Dr. Michelle Eagan. She can discuss all of your choices and create your personalized treatment plan.

Is Lip Augmentation Right For You?

Offering long-lasting results, lip augmentation with fat grafting can help you achieve fuller lips and a shapelier mouth. Ideal candidates for lower and/or upper lip augmentation at New Orleans Plastic Surgery:

  • Have always had thin lips
  • Experience age-related volume loss in the lips
  • Have uneven or asymmetrical lips
  • Want to improve the overall appearance of their facial features
  • Maintain good, overall health

Lip Augmentation Technique

At the beginning of a fat transfer treatment, we will start by using liposuction to extract unwanted fat from the stomach, hips, thighs, or buttocks. Next, the fat is placed in a centrifuge and purified. After the centrifuge stops, we place the fat into thin needles and inject it into your lips. We repeat this step until reaching the desired fullness. Because some of the fat may reabsorb, Dr. Eagan overfills the lips to account for this eventual loss. Over time, we can perform multiple fat transfer treatments, but your results will last for several years before you need a follow-up appointment.

What to Expect

After your treatment, Dr. Eagan will provide detailed aftercare instructions and discuss when to schedule your next follow-up appointment. For the next few days, your mouth will likely feel tender or sore. Additionally, the area where we extracted the fat will feel sensitive. To address any inflammation and discomfort, we recommend ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers. Generally, your results should last about 6 – 12 months. Lip augmentation with fat transfer should give you lasting outcomes; however, aging may impact your results over time.

How much does lip augmentation cost?

During your initial consultation with Dr. Eagan, she will create your tailored treatment plan and then discuss your costs. Our group at New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana takes a variety of payment methods. We can help you find low-interest financing to make your treatment easier to afford.
