Lip Augmentation in Atlanta, GA

Many women fantasize about having sumptuous, full lips. In fact, lips that are too thin automatically make you look and feel less sexually appealing and may make you more self-conscious about your appearance. Adding volume, fullness, contour and definition to your lips is easily achievable via lip augmentation procedures. The Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, led by Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., offers lip augmentation for men and women who live in and around Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs.

As we age, our skin naturally slows down collagen production, diminishing skin elasticity. The skin on our lips is highly affected by this process and loss of volume, fullness and definition of our lips are among the first signs of the aging process. Smokers and people who are exposed to a lot of sun damage often have severe environmental damage around the area of the lips. At the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Work can restore fullness, volume and definition to your lips via lip augmentation, improving and rejuvenating your overall appearance.

What Is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that adds fullness, volume and definition to the lips. Lip augmentation procedures may be performed on the lower lip, upper lip or both at the same time. The procedure works by enhancing specific characteristics of your lips, including their shape, fullness, and volume. Lip augmentation may be achieved via different methods, including implants and dermal fillers.

Lip Enhancement

At the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Work and his staff can use injectable dermal fillers to enhance your lips and make them fuller and plumper. Injectable dermal filler treatments offer a quick and non-surgical treatment that can provide a plumper pout and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. Injectable dermal fillers are a fast and simple treatment, but they are very effective at increasing the fullness, contour, and youthfulness of your lips. This procedure uses no anesthesia, incisions or sedation, although you may request a topical anesthetic to prevent any potential discomfort. The injections only take a few minutes to administer and there is no recovery period or downtime following the procedure. The results of injectable dermal fillers typically last for six to nine months.

Details of Lip Enhancement

You may choose from among a variety of dermal fillers for your lip augmentation procedure, and companies are still developing new products. Restylane®, Restylane® Silk and Juvederm® are among the most popular products and produce excellent results with lip augmentation. These products deliver hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin and stimulates collagen production. When injected into the lips, the substance imparts hydration and volume to contour smooth, full, natural-looking lips.

During your cosmetic consultation at the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Work will assess your concerns and goals and help you determine which filler is most suited to deliver the results that you desire. Dr. Work is committed to making sure that you are satisfied with your procedure.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation

Many patients choose lip augmentation over other procedures for many reasons. The procedure provides instant rejuvenation by beautifying the lips and smile, and offers several benefits including:

  • An enhanced, more youthful appearance.
  • A convenient, quick and effective procedure.
  • No required downtime.
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
  • Produces sexy, voluminous, full, contoured lips.

Is Lip Augmentation Right for Me?

Most adults are good candidates for lip augmentation provided they are healthy and have no medical conditions affecting the lips of the mouth. Lip augmentation appeals to patients who want to have a quick and relatively inexpensive procedure that will rapidly rejuvenate the entire face.

How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost in Atlanta?

The cost of lip augmentation depends on whether you choose injections or implants. Because this is generally performed as a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by medical insurance. The Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery is proud to provide CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending as financing options to help our patients manage the cost of their makeover. Our office also accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards.

Work, Jr. at the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery.
