Beverly Hills Lip Augmentation

The lips are one of the most noticeable features of the face, but hereditary factors and the aging process leave some people unsatisfied with the appearance of theirs. Many patients desire cosmetic treatment known as lip augmentation or lip enhancement to restore shape and volume to the lips. With this procedure, our Beverly Hills practice has helped countless people improve the attractiveness of their lips.

Achieved With Lip Augmentation Surgery

While the lips are smooth and full when we are young, they tend to develop wrinkles and thin out over time.

Lip augmentation eliminates wrinkles and adds fullness to the lips, so patients look noticeably younger.

Many people are born with naturally thin lips that can make them feel self-conscious.

After lip augmentation, patients can enjoy full, plump lips, and they often develop a renewed sense of confidence.

Aging in the lips often causes loose and sagging skin around the mouth as well.

A lip augmentation smoothes out the skin on and around the lips.

Lip Augmentation Options

Fat transfer

  • Fat tissue is removed from an area of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, and is transferred to the lips
  • Can potentially provide permanent results


  • FDA-approved hyaluronic acid fillers are strategically injected into the lips
  • Results are visible immediately and last approximately 6 months

Lip Lift

  • The lips are elevated and recontoured through tiny incisions inside the lips or under the nose
  • Provides enduring results

Lip Implants

  • Silicone implants are inserted into the lips through incisions inside the corners of the mouth
  • Provides permanent results
