Plump, full, voluptuous lips are a symbol of youth, beauty, and femininity. Whether you had thin lips to begin with or your full lips have become thinner with age, enhancing the lips to create a fuller, more luscious appearance can help balance your features and give your lips a more youthful, sensual appeal.
Dr. Jeffrey Hoefflin in Beverly Hills is a double board-certified surgeon who has traveled extensively to teach other plastic surgeons about the latest innovations in lip enhancement products and techniques. He performs lip enhancements with customized injectables, using a range of lip augmentation products in treatments, tailored to meet each individual patient’s needs.
Lip enhancement procedures are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. Many women understand that the shape, fullness, definition, and smoothness of the lips can make a dramatic difference in enhancing facial appearance.
Women may feel that their lips are the wrong shape, too small, or too thin. In some cases, enhancing the fullness of the lips can bring balance to overall facial features. Patients may want to add roundness and curves to flatter lips, change the shape of the lips, or augment thinner lips to achieve a more youthful pout.
Plump full lips can make a woman feel younger and raise her self-esteem. One of the most common reasons women seek lip enhancement is to combat the signs of aging. Lips begin to thin and develop perioral lines (lines around the mouth) as we grow older. With cutting-edge lip enhancement products and techniques, Dr. Hoefflin can smooth and add fullness to the lips and refine their shape for a more youthful and natural-looking appearance, and address lip lines.
Lip enhancement can be achieved with high-quality injectables in a simple procedure with no downtime. Numbing cream, along with the lidocaine contained in some dermal fillers, make the treatment relatively painless. The procedure is typically performed in a half an hour or less. Improving the shape, fullness, and smoothness of the lips is a cost-effective way to achieve a more youthful appearance in an easy “lunch hour” treatment.
Today, injectable dermal fillers are the most common method of enhancing the lips. A number of the newer fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body that attracts moisture to the skin. Hyaluronic fillers such a Juvéderm and Restylane can be injected to add shape, structure, definition, and volume to the lips.

Hyaluronic acid fillers have many advantages for enhancing the lips, including:
