Lip Injections in Los Angeles, CA

When your lips begin to look thinner and pressed, you look old and very unhappy. At Rejuva Medical Aesthetics, Kian Karimi MD, FACS, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, performs lip augmentation on people living in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Brentwood and the surrounding communities in California, to plump their lips giving them a softer, younger looking smile and appearance.


What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a specialized procedure in which volume is added to thin lips to soften and reshape them and enhance the face using lip implants or dermal fillers injected into the lips. This procedure is also performed to reduce the size of larger lips so that they are balanced on the face. The goal with lip augmentation is to look subtly natural and come more in line with the other parts of the face.

Lip augmentation is performed using various methods:

  • Dermal fillers
  • Fat transfer
  • Lip implants


Benefits of Lip Augmentation

Lip augmentation plumps the lips to create a softer smile and offers the following benefits:

  • Lessens the appearance of fine lines around the mouth
  • Minimal downtime
  • Long-lasting results
  • Improved self-image


Who is the Best Candidate for Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is ideal for anyone with naturally thin lips or lips that have begun to thin with age. Lip augmentation adds volume and softens the lips to create a brighter smile.

What Do I Do to Prepare for My Lip Augmentation?

With lip augmentation, it is very important to stop smoking as that affects the outcome of this treatment.

What Should I Expect on the Day of My Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is performed using several methods including dermal fillers, fat transfers, and lip implants. When using dermal fillers, a gel is injected into the areas of the lip to add volume. The lips may then be shaped to give them more definition.

Fat transfer combines two cosmetic treatments by using fat harvested from another area of the body as a filler in the lips. This method is slightly more invasive than using dermal fillers and creates a softer feel than other dermal fillers.

Lip augmentation is accomplished using lip implants. With this method, the lips are numbed with a local anesthetic and implants are placed in the lips through small incisions made in the corners of the lips. Once the implants are in place, the incisions are closed.

How Long Does It Take to Perform Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation takes up to an hour depending on the type of lip augmentation that is performed.

What to Expect After Lip Augmentation

The recovery with lip augmentation depends on the method used to complete the procedure. Injectable fillers are the least invasive and require no downtime. There may be some slight swelling or redness immediately following the injections, but that resolves itself within a day. Dermal fillers last several months.

Fat transfers are slightly more involved and do require some recovery. This pertains more to recovering from the liposuction for the fat transfer. There is often a little redness and swelling after the treatments that diminishes within a few days. With this method, the results last for up to three years.

With lip implants, there is more downtime since the procedure is more invasive and requires stitches. The recovery may take up to two weeks. After a week to 10 days, the external stitches are removed while the stitches inside the mouth dissolve. Lips may feel numb during the healing process and a little stiff for a few months. Lip implants are a permanent solution to maintaining fuller lips.

Will I Have Scars from Lip Augmentation?

With fillers and fat transfer, there are no scars. Lip implants may leave tiny scars as the incisions heal, but they are not very noticeable and greatly diminish or go away. If they are at all visible, they can easily be covered with makeup.

When Will I See the Results?

The results from lip augmentation are immediately visible. Any swelling, bruising or redness diminishes within a few days. With lip implants, the results take more time as the incisions must heal before swelling and bruising subside.

How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost in Los Angeles?

The cost of lip augmentation depends on the method used to complete this procedure as well as whether other treatments are performed at the same time. During your consultation with Dr. Karimi will review your costs along with our payment options including financing through CareCredit®.
