Lip Augmentation

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size, shape, and fullness of the lips that is commonly performed by Dr. Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery. Utilizing various techniques such as injectable fillers, fat transfer, or surgical implants, patients can achieve their desired lip enhancements. Injectable fillers, particularly hyaluronic acid-based products, are frequently used to add volume and definition to the lips, resulting in plumper lips and improved contours. This procedure not only helps individuals achieve a more youthful and balanced facial appearance but also addresses concerns such as thin or asymmetrical lips, enhancing lip symmetry. As an outpatient procedure with minimal downtime, lip augmentation offers a popular option for those seeking natural-looking results and a rejuvenated facial aesthetic. Under Dr. Day’s expertise, patients receive personalized care to achieve their desired lip enhancements with confidence.
