What is Lip Augmentation?
If your lips have lost volume or are naturally thinner than you'd like them to be, surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation may help give you the plumper pout you've always wanted. Surgical lip enhancement can help you achieve natural-looking results by using a fat transfer, silicone implants, or a lip lift. With surgical lip augmentation, the results can last for many years. It's also possible to enhance the lips nonsurgically using injectable dermal fillers, which temporarily plump the mouth for a youthful look. If you would like to learn more about surgical or nonsurgical lip augmentation, please call Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, CA to schedule a consultation. Dr. Husam Elias would love to meet with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
What is the lip augmentation procedure?
There are a few different approaches that might be taken for lip augmentation:
- Lip Implants
A small incision will be made in the corner of the lips so the implant(s) can be inserted below the skin. It may take 1 – 3 weeks for the implant(s) to settle into their final position and any swelling to subside, but implants in the lips will create results that last a long time.
- Fat Transfer
With a fat transfer, liposuction will extract fat from an area of your body with unwanted fat. The extracted fat will be purified and re-injected into your upper and/or lower lips until your goal is achieved. Since a portion of fat can be reabsorbed in time, the lips may be filled a little more to account for this eventual loss. Lip enhancement with a fat transfer can be repeated over time to sustain or enhance your lips, but normally your results will last for many years.
- Lip Lift/Vermilion Advancement
During a lip lift, a very small incision is made on the lower and/or upper lip line. A small area of skin outside the mouth will be removed, so the lips can be stretched to replace the excised skin and sutured in position. This lip advancement surgery creates lasting improvements to the size and shape of the lips.
- Dermal Fillers
Nonsurgical lip enhancement can be achieved with dermal fillers, like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®. Dermal fillers can be performed as an outpatient procedure in one of our treatment rooms. Depending on the dermal filler chosen, a local anesthetic may be included in the formula or a numbing cream may be applied to the lips before the treatment. Once your lips are cleaned, multiple injections will be administered in the needed areas of the lips and then massaged for better results. You should not have any downtime after this procedure.
After your lip augmentation procedure, it's vital to follow post-operative instructions to ensure optimal outcomes and recovery. Your mouth may be sore for several days, but ice packs or over-the-counter pain medications may be advised to help with any discomfort.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.
I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
