Lip Augmentation Q & A

What is lip augmentation?

Lip augmentation is an entirely personalized service designed to help you achieve plumper, more volumized lips. Whether you’ve lost volume over the years, or always had thin lips, lip augmentation may be right for you. Passion Aesthetics NYC offers two types of lip augmentation.

Surgical lip augmentation

Through a surgical lip augmentation at Passion Aesthetics NYC - performed under local anesthesia - your practitioner places a soft silicone-based implant into one or both of your lips using an injection molding process. Because the surface of the lip implant is smooth and nonporous, it won’t deflate, and it leaves you with the permanent full lip appearance you want.

Lip augmentation with fillers

As an alternative to lip implants or to enhance your lip implant service, your practitioner may recommend dermal fillers. Belotero Balance®, Juvéderm®, and Restylane® injectables can add instant volume and plumpness to your lips that can last for up to nine months or more.

You can even opt for a fat transfer, where fat is harvested from another area of your body and then injected into specific areas of your lips for a long-lasting and all-natural plumping effect.  

How long is the recovery after a lip augmentation?

It depends on your specific procedure. If you’re having a lip implant put in place, it can take up to a week or two to fully heal. With dermal filler injections or a fat transfer, you may have some initial swelling or inflammation that can last for a few days, but these minor side effects tend to resolve rather quickly.

Is a lip augmentation painful?

The compassionate team at Passion Aesthetics NYC want you to get the beautiful fuller lips you desire, without worrying about pain. With lip implants, they entirely numb your lips with local anesthesia, so you won’t feel any discomfort.

If you’re getting dermal filler lip injections, your practitioner can apply a topical numbing cream to lessen the stinging sensation from the needle. Some lines of dermal fillers also contain lidocaine, so they numb the area during the injection.

With a fat transfer lip augmentation, the harvesting site — like on your hip — is generally numbed with local anesthesia. Depending on your specific treatment, your practitioner at Passion Aesthetics NYC may also numb your lips with a topical or local solution to ensure you’re entirely comfortable.
