Whether you have noticed gradual thinning of your lips or have always desired to have fuller lips, lip augmentation is a great way to enhance your appearance and restore youthfulness.

Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Samuel Hahn of the Maryland Center for Facial Plastic Surgery performs lip augmentations for patients throughout the Baltimore, Towson, Columbia, and surrounding communities.
What is Lip Augmentation?
There are numerous methods of lip augmentation designed to increase volume and improve texture of the lips. The most popular method is injection augmentation with dermal fillers such as Juvaderm® or Restalyne®. These fillers provide a quick, minimally invasive method to adding fullness to the lips while maintaining softness and flexibility important for natural appearance. Those seeking a more permanent solution may consider fat transfers or implants.
The aging process results in loss of collagen and elasticity affecting the texture of the skin around the lips. Treatments that tighten the collagen and elastic tissue, such as laser or microneedling, can reduce the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines around the mouth. Additionally, dermal fillers may be used to soften fine vertical lines around your lips that can be a result from sun damage or smoking. Restoring youthfulness to your lips by enhancing volume and definition through lip augmentation, can help rejuvenate your entire appearance.
What is a Lip Lift?
A lip lift is a minor surgical procedure that you want to consider for comprehensive rejuvenation of the lips. The upper lip skin elongates over time resulting in thinning of the mucosal or “red” upper lip. These changes are related to gravity, changes in skin elasticity, and loss of bony support. The lip lift procedure involves a lifting technique that causes the red lip to gently roll out and increase visibility of the natural “red” lip, restoring the youthful fullness of the lip. This technique will also result in a brighter, more natural smile.
