Some people have naturally thin lips. Others see their lips thin as they get older. But there are methods to correct thin lips, including injections that use fillers to plump lips, lip implants and other surgical treatments.
You may want to undergo lip augmentation if:
- You have thin lips that disappear if you are smiling.
- Your lips have thinned as you have gotten older.
- You are unhappy with or self-conscious about your lips’ appearance.
- Lip augmentation will give you fuller lips and helps balance facial features.
- Every procedure carries pros and cons. Here are some for lip augmentation.
On the positive side, injection treatments are temporary and we can customize treatment to help you achieve your goals. Lip augmentation via surgery offers permanent enhancement. And recovery time is quick, usually one day for injection treatment and about a week for surgery.
It’s important to remember that treatment with fillers requires repeated injections over time, as results will eventually fade, and surgery is permanent. But removing surgical lip implants can be difficult.
The vast majority of lip augmentation patients at Transformations Plastic Surgery are happy with their results and gain self-confidence and a better self-image.

Some lip augmentation options include:

- Fillers: This is an injection treatment that uses natural or synthetic material to achieve fuller lips. Results are temporary and follow-up treatments are recommended.
- Surgery: This is permanent lip augmentation. There are a number of surgical options available and Dr. Pryor will help you decide which procedure is best for you.
Lip implants are another option. Lip lifts can also be performed. There are a wide variety of options to enhance and improve the look and shape of your lips.
