About Lip Augmentation For men
If you have naturally thin lips or are noticing decreased volume in your lips as you get older, surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation may help create a full, well-shaped pout. Lip augmentation can be accomplished with dermal fillers, a fat transfer, silicone implants, or a lip lift (vermilion advancement) to create the shape you desire. If you're interested in surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation, contact Chiseled in Spring, TX to schedule a consult with seasoned plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho to discuss your options and create a custom treatment plan. We are excited to offer the following:
- Dermal Fillers
Injectables, including JUVÉDERM or Restylane, can temporarily add volume to lips and reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines.
- Fat Transfer
By removing fat from one area of the body with minimally invasive liposuction and then putting the purified fat into your lips, you can get natural-looking improvements.
- Lip Implants
For the most lasting results, silicone implants may be placed in the lower and/or upper lips to improve the volume and shape of your mouth.
- Lip Lift/Vermilion Advancement
This procedure removes a small amount of skin and uses a tightening technique to enhance the contours of the upper lips.

Lip Augmentation Reviews
"Liplift - I came to see dr. Cho based on recommendation from my friend. She loved her experience and results so much that I booked my consultation with him. I was able to have my lip lift under local anesthesia. I loved my experience so much I’m sending my sister to have a lip lift too,"- A. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2019
"54 Yr Old Did the Profound RF, Kybella, Botox and Silk for Tired Face with Fat Pocket Under Chin - Spring, TX - I am in my mid 50s and had a sunken tired look with a fat deposit under my chin. Had the Profound RF treatment on my face, neck and upper chest and Kybella under the chin. Dr Chiang administered the Profound treatment and Dr. Cho, the Kybella. Really like the results! I have also had Botox around the eyes and Silk on the lips in subsequent trips."- P. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2017
"Cheek Filler and Lips Done - Dr. Chiang has a wonderful, soft bedside manner. She is gentle and truly cares about her patient's comfort level. I came here for my tear troughs initially but had other areas addressed as well. Appointments are easy and the staff is great, very caring and attentive. I'd recommend Dr. Chiang and her office for anyone interested in a more youthful appearance. I'm very happy with the results I have gotten so far."- H. / RealSelf / Apr 09, 2019

"Lip Lift/corner Lift/lip Reduction - Hello, I have been roaming these reviews and thought it was time to share my experience. On 09/09, I had a lip lift with corner lift and lip reduction. I know it’s an odd combination, but I had a fairly short philtrum to begin with, and my goal was to have more teeth show. I will be three weeks post and here are my thoughts/highlights so far:Day 1-5 : Oh my god, the swelling. After surgery, my face just looked...distorted. The swelling was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced before (remember, I had a reduction too). The pain wasn’t too bad post surgery, with the pain peaking maybe 6 hours post. I took one pill for pain and that was all I needed.Day 5: On day 5, I had my stitches removed. Day 7: By day 7, my swelling was reduced and not really as offensive. I felt almost presentable. Current status: I am definitely still tight at the nose, corners, and at the wet/dry border. I cannot smile fully which is frustrating. Most of my swelling appears to be gone but my lip is pretty hard and lumpy at the reduction incision. My scars are still there but definitely hard to see if you’re not looking. I’m about to see a friend I’ve know for years; the real test will be to see if he’ll notice. Highlights:1. You will swell. I took pictures almost daily at the start but I’m not sure that’s a good idea. At the very least, I would not obsess over how it looks initially as it will surely change and evolve over time. 2. The scars will have good days and bad days. Per my doctor’s recommendation, I started to use a silicone ointment as soon as my stitches were removed. I think it’s very important to intervene early on and to remember your scar will evolve over a year plus. Right after my stitch removal, my scar looked perfect. Currently however, it’s gotten bumpy. This is completely normal for it to change. So I guess my advice is, even if your scar looks great initially, be sure to manage your scar for an extended period of time as your scar will continue to remodel for 12 months+. Smiling: Not being able to laugh or smile is the real bummer for me. When my hilarious friend tells me a joke, I want to laugh untrammeled. I am not trying to equate what I feel at all close to depression, but it almost seems like the inability to express has muted my emotions. If you are a smiley, laughy person, expect to feel a bit “unsettled.” Laughing and smiling constitutes a huge part of my personality, and right now, I can’t be fully me. I’m voting “not sure” as it’s still early. However my doctor is FANTASTIC. I think he did everything right for me to have a fantastic experience, now let’s see how my body responds."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 29, 2020
Candidates for lip augmentation
Surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation can help significantly improve the overall shape, size, and projection of your lips. During your initial consultation, Dr. Cho will take his time to listen to your specific concerns and goals to understand the look you want to achieve. From there, he can provide his recommendation of which option may be best for you and create a custom treatment plan that suits your needs. Ideal candidates for upper or lower lip augmentation at Chiseled:
- Men having naturally thin lips or have lost lip volume with age
- Have uneven or asymmetrical lips
- Want to enhance their entire face
- Are in good general health
Chiseled is pleased to offer the following lip augmentation techniques:
A thin incision in the corner of the mouth allows the lip implant(s) to be guided into place. It can take 1 – 3 weeks for the implant(s) to settle into their final position and for any swelling to subside, but lip implants often provide stunning results that last for years.
First, fat will be extracted (via liposuction) from an area with excess fat. This fat will then be purified and injected into your upper or lower lips until your goal fullness is reached. Since some fat may be reabsorbed by the body over time, your lips may be filled a little more to account for this loss. Lip enhancement using a fat transfer can be done multiple times to sustain or enhance your lips, but results generally last for several years.
Lip Lift/Vermilion Advancement
For this procedure, a bullhorn-shaped incision will be made at the base of the nose to remove a small strip of skin. The remaining tissue will be pulled tight and sutured in place to enhance the Cupid's bow and provide a fuller-looking appearance. This lip advancement provides long-lasting results that help improve the shape and size of the lips.
Nonsurgical lip augmentation can be done with injectable dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM or Restylane. Based on the brand of dermal filler chosen, a local anesthetic may be included in the formula or a numbing cream can be applied to the lips before treatment. Once your lips are cleaned, several injections will be administered in the selected areas and then massaged to distribute the filler evenly. Once your treatment is complete, you'll be able to resume your routine without any downtime.
After your procedure
It is important to pay attention to all post-treatment instructions given by Dr. Cho to achieve faster healing and the best possible results. After either a surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation, your mouth will most likely feel sore or tender for a few days. If you had a fat transfer, you should expect the liposuctioned area to be tender as well. We recommend ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers to address any swelling or discomfort. The improvements from a dermal filler may last for around 12 – 18 months, depending on the specific injectable used in treatment. Lip augmentation surgery will provide longer-lasting results; however, the natural aging process will continue and can affect all results over time. Talk to Dr. Cho about when you should return for a follow-up treatment to refresh your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get the lips of a specific celebrity?
You might come in and request the specific lips of an actor. Bringing in pictures of lips you like will help Dr. Cho understand your goals; however, it may be difficult to create the exact lips of someone else. In your consultation, Dr. Cho will listen to your goals before discussing the options (implants, lip lift, dermal fillers, or a fat transfer) to augment your lips. From there, he will craft your personal treatment plan.
Should I get implants, a lift, a fat transfer, or fillers?
Depending on your specific goals, Dr. Cho can help you choose between dermal fillers, a fat transfer, implants, or a surgical lift for your augmentation. If you're unsure about which option you want and wish to avoid an invasive procedure, injectable fillers might be an ideal choice. At your consultation, Dr. Cho will explain the benefits and drawbacks of every option so that you can decide which is best for you.
Do lip implants look fake?
Implants are made of a flexible material that is designed to feel and look natural. In your initial consultation, Dr. Cho will go over the different shapes and sizes of upper and lower lip implants to match your needs and goals. Although optimal results may take some time, lip implants usually last for many years.
Is lip augmentation reversible?
Lip augmentation with fillers or a fat transfer offer short-term results, and implants can be removed. Therefore, if you're unhappy with your new look, these options are low risk. However, a surgical lip lift can't be reversed. This is why it's so important to have the right expectations and to discuss all of your concerns with Dr. Cho during your initial consultation.
