Lip Augmentation


Do you want youthful, sexy voluminous lips that look absolutely natural? Michael Schwartz, M.D., a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery offers premium lip augmentation surgical solutions for those patients who live in and around Los Angeles, Pasadena and the surrounding communities of California who want to look their very best.

What is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips. The lips are one of the defining features of the face, and full lips are not only more desirable, but can be sensual as well. When we age, our lips tend to lose volume. Fortunately, a natural lip enhancement can help to return the lips to a more youthful state without looking fake or unnatural. Dr. Schwartz is an expert on lip augmentation, utilizing injectable dermal fillers as an effective method of lip augmentation. Only hyaluronic acid fillers can be placed in the lips in addition to one’s own fat. Dr. Schwartz utilizes different hyaluronic acid fillers and also performs fat transfer to the lips in many cases, creating natural full lips.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation

The truth about lips is that youthful and attractive lips are most often defined by a graceful shape, characterized by fullness and a slight but natural ‘rolling out’ or ‘pout’. There are philtral columns, two parallel thickenings of skin extending from the lip up to the base of the nose, and as we age, depending upon our genetic makeup, sun exposure, cigarette smoking and lifestyle factors, a number of changes can occur to them. First the lips relax, then they begin to thin out and elongate and the natural youthful plumpness plummets. As the lip volume diminishes, vertical lines may begin to be noticeable, and for many individuals experiencing these conditions, the benefits of lip augmentation with Dr. Schwartz are substantial.

What is the Lip Augmentation Procedure?

There is an art to lip enhancement, which makes the selection of a facial plastic surgeon absolutely critical in terms of achieving your ideal results. Dr. Schwartz understands the complex anatomy of the lips and these artistic and technical demands explain why so many patients turn to Dr. Schwartz for natural looking results. Dr. Schwartz is an expert on the face who fully understands the art of lip enhancement and as a surgeon, the complex anatomy as well. For those patients who seek a very subtle change to their lips, Dr. Schwartz often injects a small amount of filler to help define the lips, which can help to erase smoker’s lines around the mouth. For those patients who desire or would benefit from some increase in volume to their lips, filler can also be used for augmentation. With all of his lip enhancement patients, Dr. Schwartz’s goal is always to create a naturally augmented lip. During your consultation, Dr. Schwartz will discuss the procedure and what expectations for your recovery from lip augmentation you should have.
