What is lip augmentation? Los Angeles area specialist discusses lip injections – before, after, and in-between

Have you always craved fuller, well-defined lips? Maybe your lips have thinned? Whatever the case may be, Dr. Dass has the skills and proven products to safely, quickly, and effectively improve your lips (and the area around them). With lip injections, the before and after transformation our Los Angeles area patients have enjoyed is undeniable. Read on to find out how lip augmentation boosts your pout, overall appearance, and confidence.

Before Lip Injections

Over time, skin loses naturally-occurring building blocks such as collagen and hyaluronic acid, which provide structure. Just as these changes cause wrinkles and volume loss in other parts of the face, they can also result in noticeable vertical lines around the mouth and thinner lips. Sun exposure and habits like smoking accelerate age-related changes. Lip augmentation is also popular among younger patients who desire fuller, beautifully-shaped pouts that look great in selfies.

About Lip Injections

A Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Dass gets the results you desire after first assessing your lip symmetry, shape, and overall facial balance. He’ll determine which areas on and around your lips need plumping. These sites may be injected with:
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC
  • Juvéderm Volbella XC,
Both Juvéderm products are formulated with lidocaine, but fillers are generally well-tolerated. The Ultra formulation is designed to add fullness and plumpness to aging or naturally thin lips, while Volbella is tailored to subtly boost lips and soften vertical lines that make you look older and more tired than your years.

After Lip Injections

You’ll see immediate enhancement in the shape, volume, and appearance of the lips and lip area. By restoring lost hyaluronic acid, fillers also restore lost volume and reduce depressions and wrinkles. As beautiful as the results are, they don’t last forever.
