That voluptuous look of full lips has become an exceedingly desired facial trait among women.
Unfortunately, we are not all lucky enough to be naturally blessed with such full lips. For those who aspire to have fuller looking lips, there are two popular options available: lip augmentation with fillers or fat, or lip implants. In addition, as we grow older, the corners of the mouth begin to droop over time, and that V-shaped area of the upper lip (sometimes called “cupid’s bow”) gradually loses its youthful fullness and its shape becomes less defined. Dr. Lee offers lip-enhancing treatments to those who are looking to achieve full, plump, luscious lips that look natural and compliment the contours of one’s face.
A quick way to achieve a fuller lip is with the use of fillers. With her years of extensive training and practice, Dr. Lee prefers to use dermal fillers (like Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane) or fat grafting. Fillers or fat grafting are great ways to enhance and plump your lips in a way that looks natural and fits your face. These options can also be used to enhance the natural silhouette of your upper lip. If you have any wrinkles or fine lines along the outer borders of the lips, these can be addressed in conjunction with your lip augmentation.
A fat transfer plumps up your lips by utilizing your own fat, which is harvested from another area of your body, such as your belly or flanks. Choosing the route of a fat transfer is a safe procedure, that doesn’t involve the insertion of foreign substances into your body.
Dermal fillers are not only used for lip augmentation but can also be used to correct lips that are asymmetrical. It is not uncommon to have one side of the lips be a little fuller than the other side. Dr. Lee is able to correct this unbalance by filling the flatter area to match, thus creating symmetry for your lips through the use of dermal fillers, all without looking “done.” The natural silhouette of your upper lip and “cupid’s bow” can be subtly highlighted, along with minimizing any visible wrinkles surrounding the lips, during a lip asymmetry correction.

For a more permanent solution, lip implants may be used to augment the lips. This is a great option for those who want a consistent and natural appearance without having their lips filled with temporary fillers on a regular basis. In order to deliver among the best lip implants Beverly Hills has available, Dr. Lee will discuss your needs and goals to determine which route will best achieve your desired look. Lip implant surgery can be done as an in-office procedure.

Following lip augmentation with injectable fillers or fat grafting, you may experience some swelling for the first few hours. Any discomfort tends to be fairly minimal. Most patients resume their normal activities that same day. Dr. Lee is conservative in her use of fillers to avoid unnatural appearing results.
