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.
Lip Augmentation Reviews
"I’ve been looking for the perfect plastic surgeon since moving to New Orleans, and thankfully the search is finally over some five years later. While other doctors treated me like I was just another patient in an assembly line, Dr. Eagan was extremely personable and friendly while also remaining totally professional and knowledgeable. I was nervous about trying fillers for the first time after seeing/hearing some of the horror stories but I trusted Dr. Eagan’s judgement, leaving my lips completely in her hands and could not be happier with the natural-looking results. I will definitely be returning for more. Thank you!"- S.B. / Google / Nov 05, 2019

"Dr. Eagan was absolutely amazing. She took her time discussing the look I wanted to achieve and my options. I got one syringe of juvederm XC injected in my lips and I am absolutely in love! I had very minor swelling the first day post injection and absolutely no bruising or pain. My lips look exactly the way I wanted them to. Dr Eagan is the best!"- J.C. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2018
"Dr. Eagan is magical!! She did my lips, Botox and cheeks. Her work looks very natural. People said I looked refreshed but had no idea I had any work done. Dr. Eagan is meticulous and she is a true artist. I highly recommend her!"- M.B. / Yelp / Aug 16, 2019

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.
