Plump, lovely lips are a beautiful feature. If you wish you had fuller, beautifully defined lips, lip augmentation may be the ideal procedure for you. Dr. Balinger performs lip augmentation with dermal filler injections and with lip implants for a long-lasting enhancement.
Your lip shape and volume may have changed over time. It is natural for the body tissues to lose volume over time, and if you have seen your lips become thinner with time, you can restore the fresh, plump look of youthful lips. Dermal filler injections are performed with precision to restore lost volume or enhance the look of naturally thinner lips. For those who want a long-term solution, placing soft, pliable lip implants that feel like natural tissue lasts a lifetime. Natural fat transfer adds volume to your lips with your own fat cells – soft and long-lasting.

Lip augmentation procedures – what’s right for you?
Dr. Balinger performs several lip augmentation procedures, including:
Lip augmentation with implants allows you to enjoy your enhanced lips for a lifetime. Some patients who have relied on dermal fillers and love the look may choose to undergo lip augmentation with a custom implant to create plumper, fuller lips for the long term, with no need for regular injections.
Natural fat transfer
Natural fat grafting, or fat transfer, is the process of harvesting fat cells from an area of your body with excess, purifying the cells, and then gently and precisely injecting the cells into your lips to add natural volume. This treatment has a side benefit – love handles, abdomen, or thighs are slimmed during the fat harvest procedure, performed with gentle liposuction.
The most common lip augmentation involves injecting dermal fillers to add volume. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as Juvéderm Volbella and Juvéderm Ultra XC, have a soft, natural feeling, with the added benefit of keeping your lips hydrated and refreshed. With dermal fillers, your lips can become fuller, plumper, and redefined in a procedure that takes little time – but the procedure must be performed with superior injection skills to ensure the result is not overfilled but looks plump, fresh, and natural.
Dr. Christopher Balinger is a master of all three lip augmentation treatments and will work closely with you to ensure you are delighted with the beautiful changes in your lips.
