Lip Augmentation with Restylane & Juvederm
Fillers for Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation with Restylane or Juvederm is a great way to enhance the appearance of the lower face. The technique works equally well in patients with naturally thin lips or patients who have experienced volume loss in their lips as a result of aging. Unlike the collagen injections of the past, Restylane & Juvederm are extremely safe with a very low risk of allergic reactions.

Lip injections can be performed with minimal patient discomfort. Dr. Kapadia likes using Juvederm Ultra XC and Restylane Silk for lip injections. Both formulations contain lidocaine which makes the injections much more comfortable. Nerve blocks performed from inside the mouth can be used to enhance anesthesia if needed.

These photos show a woman in her early twenties who wanted additional volume and shape. The lower lip was made more “pouty” by using filler to invert the lip. The border of the upper lip was accentuated as well. An older patient who started with much smaller lips wouldn’t be able to achieve this much volume.

These photos show a woman before and after treatment. Before treatment the upper lip is too small relative to the lower lip. Treatment consistent of adding more volume and accentuating the border of the upper lip. A smaller amount of volume was added to the lower lip for balance and to enhance the overall shape.
