What is Lip Enhancement?

Board Certified Female Plastic Surgeon Dr. Beverly Friedlander

Dr. Friedlander believes in creating a natural result that frames your mouth and is proportional to your features. Lip enhancement is a non-surgical treatment that uses HA fillers to plump the look of your lips. HAs (Hyaluronic Acids) are naturally found in your body and hydrate and plump your skin. When injected into the lips, they draw water in, adding fullness and smoothing the fine lines.

Am I a Candidate for Lip Enhancement?

You may be a good candidate for lip enhancement if you are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding your results. Dr. Friedlander will discuss your options and help you figure out the best treatment. Lip enhancement is a good option for anyone who is looking to treat:

  • Thin, small lips
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Asymmetrical lips
  • Lips that lack definition

Types of Lip Enhancements

A lip enhancement can result in sexy and voluptuous-looking lips that you will be ecstatic about. Dr. Friedlander uses a variety of fillers, including JUVÉDERM®. Restylane® and RHA®. Each product contains HA (Hyaluronic Acid), a sugar naturally produced by your body that hydrates the lips. In addition, they vary in density and composition, so they are well-suited to combating various concerns around the lips.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra can restore fullness to your lips. It is a soft filler, naturally adding volume to your lips. It has withstood the test of time.


Restylane® treatment can reduce moderate to severe wrinkles around your mouth and can also be used to add volume to your lips. When used along the border of the lip, it adds definition to the lip and reduces lipstick “bleed.”

Restylane® Refyne

Restylane® Refyne differs in formulation from its cousin Restylane®. It uses an innovative cross-linking called XpresHAn Technology to maintain the natural appearance of your features. It integrates beautifully into the skin, making it virtually invisible while providing the enhancement you desire.

Restylane® Defyne

Restylane® Defyne is a denser filler. It may be used to provide even greater enhancement if your lips are full. It too uses XpresHAn Technology to maintain the natural appearance of your features.

Restylane® Kysse

Restylane® Kysse is similar to Restylane® Refyne in that it uses XpresHAn Technology. It can enhance lip volume and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, creating a soft natural look. It also fills out the wrinkles on the lip, improving the texture Restylane® Kysse is clinically proven to last six to nine months.


RHA 2 injections treats the dynamic wrinkles around the lips and mouth relax for a more rejuvenated appearance. RHA 2 is a soft filler that integrates well into the lips to improve contour without overly affecting volume. It is ideal for subtle improvements without looking “overdone.”


RHA 3 is similar to RHA 2, except that it adds more fullness to the lips while still looking natural. Moderate to severe wrinkles around the face, nose, and mouth are treated with the third level of RHA injections. Dr. Friedlander uses these techniques to sculpt the precise look you want. That way, people see you… not your lip fillers.

Lip Enhancement Options

If you are looking for a natural, longer-lasting result, fat transfers, grafts, and surgical flap procedures may offer you promise. Fillers in the lips can last from a few months to up to one year. A fat transfer is a minor surgical procedure that will harness your own body fat to increase the plumpness of your lips.

Other alternatives include the use of grafts and surgical “flap” procedures. Flaps are particularly well-suited for women with a very long upper lip. This procedure exposes more vermillion tissue while reducing the distance between the nose and the lips, creating improved proportion and fullness. This procedure can be performed in the office but is more commonly performed alongside other rejuvenation procedures. All of these treatments, when properly applied, can naturally enhance your lips, creating the lip shape and appearance you desire.

Lip Enhancement Recovery

Lip enhancement offers a non-surgical approach and is performed on an outpatient basis. There is little to no downtime following your treatment, meaning that you can return to all activities.

Topical numbing is applied before the procedure, and the filler contains a numbing agent, so your lips will feel numb for a little while. Swelling is variable and usually mild. Other side effects include bruising and firmness, which should improve spontaneously. Icing your lips afterward and sleeping with your head elevated will help to reduce the swelling.

Lip Enhancement Results

The result of lip fillers is variable, lasting between a few months and about a year. You will notice an improvement in the appearance of your lips immediately following the treatment, boosting your self-confidence. It may take a day or two for the filler to settle and for you to get used to your new look. Treatments need to be repeated to maintain your improvement.

Are There any Risks or Side Effects involved?

There are risks with any procedure.

What Does Lip Enhancements Cost?

Your treatment plan is uniquely customized—meaning each procedure will vary in price for each patient. In addition, the cost of your treatment depends on how complex the area is to correct and any additional therapies simultaneously used.
