Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that alters the appearance of the lips to achieve a more attractive shape and volume. It is an ideal solution for those with naturally thin lips, but it can also help you if age has affected your lip appearance.

Various methods can be used in lip augmentation, including both non-surgical and surgical procedures. To determine which of these is best suited to your needs, Dr. Sedgh will go over your wishes and goals for your surgery with you. With almost a decade of surgical experience, and a reputation for his ability to create authentic, beautiful results, your lip augmentation will be performed with exceptional skill and attention to detail.
Who is a candidate for lip augmentation?
You can undergo lip enhancement not only to improve the fullness and smoothness of your lips or to make the lips symmetrical, bringing balance to your entire face. You may also undergo the procedure to rejuvenate the lips and address the adverse effects of aging. Lip augmentation is commonly performed to enlarge or reshape the lips, but it can also correct the following:
- Undefined Cupid’s bow
- Asymmetrical lip shape
- Disproportionate upper to lower lip ratio
- Age-related creasing
- Lip corners that turn downwards
What are the benefits?
Lip augmentation is a simple procedure that requires subtlety to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results. Dr. Jacob Sedgh believes in the importance of achieving symmetry and maintaining a natural look, which is why he employs finesse and artistry to avoid unnatural or overfilled results that can negatively affect the overall harmony and natural beauty of the face.
Dr. Sedgh is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon whose exceptional surgical skills are backed by nearly two decades of medical study and practice. Under his care, you can expect the following benefits:
- Fuller, more voluptuous lips
- Improved lip definition
- Softer, smoother skin on and around the lip area
- Facial harmony and allure
What to expect before your lip augmentation procedure?
Dr. Sedgh’s medical expertise and empathy are the pillars of his successful practice. During your initial consultation, he will listen to your goals and desired outcome. He will then discuss what he suggests as treatment. This meeting is an excellent opportunity to communicate your expectations and other concerns, so make sure to ask any questions you may have.
Your consultation will consist of:
- An interview to determine medical history and relevant lifestyle habits
- A thorough physical examination
- Discussion of options that best suit your needs
- A complete explanation of the procedure
If you are unable to personally visit Dr. Sedgh’s West Hollywood clinic in the prestigious Sunset Towers, bordering West Hollywood and Beverly Hills for a consultation, he can conduct the meeting through Skype for your convenience. For those who need to travel to undergo the procedure, the doctor’s concierge team can also assist you with travel arrangements.
Lasting lip enhancement
For results that last a lifetime results, lip implants and fat transfers are both popular options. With fat transfer, a small portion of body fat is taken out of a donor site and injected into the target areas to create soft, smooth, and plump lips. With lip implants, the doctor will use either natural or synthetic implants, which are inserted through small incisions inside the corners of the mouth. He will then thread the implant through the lip, cut it into the correct length, and close the incisions with stitches.
Invasive surgical options for permanent lip augmentation, such as mucosal advancement and lip lifting, can also be performed. However, these methods are only appropriate for a select group of patients and not commonly used in the modern era of facial rejuvenation due to the success and ease of less invasive options.
Downtime is typically very minimal following a lip augmentation procedure. After undergoing filler injections, you may experience some swelling and bruises in the immediate area, but these side effects will usually subside after a few days. You may also experience mild to moderate discomfort. The length of recovery varies among individuals, but you can expect to return to your usual activities within a week. Dr. Sedgh will provide you with detailed instructions for post-procedure care, which must be strictly followed to ensure proper healing. He will personally monitor your post-surgery progress through regularly scheduled follow-up appointments.
