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.

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

Techniques

Chiseled is pleased to offer the following lip augmentation techniques:

  • Lip Implants
    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.
  • Fat Transfer
    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.
  • Dermal Fillers
    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.
