Lip Augmentation

in Baltimore, MD

Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown perform lip augmentation for patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland. If you want to achieve fuller lips without the need for surgery and implants, we offer patients nonsurgical solutions with an injectable filler. A lip augmentation with filler can add a subtle enhancement to the size, shape, and overall appearance of the lips.

What is Lip Augmentation?

A lip augmentation is simply a procedure designed to increase fullness in one or both of the lips. It can include injecting dermal fillers or even your own fat cells into the Several different fillers can be injected into the lips to make them appear fuller, such as the following:


A product that mimics the body’s own natural supply of hyaluronic acid


A product that mimics the body’s own natural supply of hyaluronic acid

Patients can also choose laser lip rejuvenation to help them smooth the wrinkles in the perioral area. This procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis and will take around 30 minutes to complete.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation

Patients can benefit from a lip augmentation for a subtle, natural-looking enhancement.

With a lip augmentation the following concerns can be improved:

  •         Naturally thin lips
  •         Lip thinning with age
  •         Asymmetrical lips

By opting for nonsurgical lip augmentation, patients can also enjoy no incisions, fewer side effects, and no required downtime. There is also no permanent commitment with lip injections, as the filler will safely and naturally be broken down by the body over the course of 6-12 months.

Who is a Good Candidate for Lip Augmentation?

Candidates for lip augmentation are those who are unhappy with genetically thin lips or lips that have lost volume with age. A lip augmentation that utilizes injectable filler is a great alternative for those who do not want to undergo surgical lip augmentation with an implant. The procedure allows for no scarring or downtime.

How is Lip Augmentation Performed?

After numbing the area with a strong topical anesthetic, injectable fillers can be administered in only a few minutes right here in our office. The formula will be placed under the skin with a thin needle. A small amount will be evenly distributed in the lips until the desired plumpness is reached.

Recovery After Lip Augmentation

It is normal to have swelling for the first several days after lip augmentation, so it is a good idea to plan the procedure around your schedule accordingly. Once the swelling has diminished, patients can enjoy fuller lips that last for many months before a touch-up is required.
