Schedule a Consultation

As we age, our lips age, too.

They deflate and sag as a result of many years of constant movement and folding caused by the contraction of the underlying muscles of the lower face and lips, in particular the orbicularis oris muscle. This inevitable process occurs during pouting, smiling, laughing, yawning, or simply talking. All of these movements happen thousands of times per day. In addition, forces of gravity, sun exposure, smoking and the decline of collagen and elastin production after age 30 result in the loss of youthful appearance in one of our most attractive facial features, our kissing lips.

Lip Injections, Lip Fillers

What are the best options for lip augmentation?

There are two types of procedures that can help you achieve the lips you desire:

  • Lip Fillers (hyaluronic acid gels), strategically injected in and around the lips to fill in wrinkles and create volume. (non-surgical, non-permanent)
    • Length of Procedure: 15-20 minutes
    • Cost: $500-$900 per treatment
    • Downtime: None
  • Permalip, a gummy-worm-shaped, silicon, soft lip implant (surgicalpermanent)

Most popular: Injectable lip fillers

Most patients are extremely satisfied with the use of non-surgical facial fillers for augmenting their lips. In fact, facial fillers are the world’s 2nd most popular procedure (right behind the #1 most popular procedure, BOTOX).

Available facial fillers by brand:

  • Volbella Juvederm with lidocaine: developed by Allergan and first introduced in Paris. Its unique Vycross technology ensures a natural, long-lasting result. It is smooth and is the only lip augmentation gel that lasts up to one year, outlasting all other lip fillers by a significant margin. It is related to Voluma in many ways. (Presently, Volbella is approved everywhere in the world except the United States, where it is awaiting FDA approval.)
  • Juvederm Ultra with lidocaine and Juvederm Ultra Plus with lidocaine: manufactured by Allergan.
  • Restylane with lidocaine: manufactured by Q-Med of Sweden
  • Perlane with lidocaine: manufactured by Q-Med. Is slightly thicker than Restylane, and thus longer lasting.
  • Belotero Balance: manufactured by Merz of Germany

All FDA approved dermal lip fillers are made of synthetic, laboratory-made hyaluronic acid, the differences lie in the manufacturing process which differs slightly between producers. Since all dermal lip fillers are synthetic, they are not derived from humans or animals.

Warning about silicone liquid gel injections

You may have heard of silicone liquid gel injections. We DO NOT recommend liquid silicone gel injections anywhere in your face or body. It is highly illegal and unnatural. The long term outcome can be especially devastating to lips.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of product is used for lip enhancement in Chicago?

A soft, smooth gel filler is injected into the lips to enhance the volume and shape of the lips. The product is comprised of two main ingredients: cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel (primary ingredient), and lidocaine (a mild anesthetic to make the injection virtually pain-free).

Hyaluronic Acid (Ha) is a complex polysaccharide (sugar) naturally found in many tissues of the body, such as in skin and cartilage. Hyaluronic acid molecules bind to water to create more volume and elasticity in the skin to correct the appearance of wrinkles and facial folds.

Primarily, those who desire younger, plump lips, or those who have vertical “smokers lines.” Fillers are also used to improve the texture of the lips and may be combined with BOTOX.

Results are seen immediately.

Rarely, but yes, especially when they need to correct the deep, vertical, smoker lines of the upper lips, and the sagging corners of the mouth.

Volbella and Juvederm injections usually last up to one year, but individual results vary.

Usually, the lip enhancement procedure should be repeated at 3-6 month intervals to avoid returning to pre-procedure appearance.

No, there is no downtime after this procedure. You may return to your normal day immediately upon leaving our office.

The short answer is: whatever it takes to make you happy. Since this procedure is technique dependent, our Chicago lip augmentation experts at The Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute achieve pleasant, natural and lasting lip rejuvenation with ultimate results. We do not recommend overly aggressive injections or using too much filler as it may lead to undesirable effects.
