As we age, lips become thin, flat, and shapeless, resulting in a loss of the sensuous fullness that makes lips sexy and kissable. You can rejuvenate the appearance of your lips by adding volume, and definition via lip augmentation. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers lip augmentation for men and women who live in North Florida.

As we age our production of collagen diminishes, affecting the plumpness and fullness of our skin. The skin on our lips is greatly affected by this loss of collagen, altering the appearance, fullness, and shape of our lips. Smokers typically suffer more negative effects in the lip area, as do people who are exposed to excessive amounts of sunlight. Dr. Phillip Garcia’s expert skill can restore youthfulness to your lips, enhancing volume and definition through lip augmentation, which may actually rejuvenate your entire appearance.

What Is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation allows the person receiving the lip enhancement to have fuller lips and helps remove or reduce the wrinkles that develop around the mouth. Reconstruction of the lips can be achieved through the use of many different treatments, including injections, implants, and laser rejuvenation. Some patients who develop an allergic reaction to the substance used in the lip augmentation may opt for the laser treatment. The laser treatment tightens the collagen and elastic tissue in the area around the mouth, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines around the mouth. Get the rich, full lips that are just right for you.

Lip Augmentation Patient Testimonial

“I was very pleased with the whole experience, and I’ve recommended him to many people. The staff and nurses treated me very well; like I was a good friend. That’s what makes me consider having any more procedures done by Dr. Garcia.”— C.M.

Lip Injections

At Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Garcia uses injectable dermal fillers to add fullness and definition to your lips, imparting a more sensuous and youthful appearance. Injectable fillers add plumpness to your pout and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. The amount of filler that is used will depend on how much augmentation or enhancement you desire.

Injectable dermal fillers provide a safe and quick treatment that is effective in increasing fullness, smoothness, and definition in the lips. This procedure requires no anesthesia, incisions or sedation, but you may request a topical anesthetic to reduce the possibility of any minor discomfort. The injections take only minutes to administer, and there is relatively no recovery time following the procedure. You may experience slight bruising and swelling for a few days, but your results are visible immediately and typically last for six to nine months.

Details of Lip Injections

There are several injectables that are suitable for lip augmentation, and new products are still being developed. Juvederm®, Restylane® and Radiesse® are among the most popular and generally produce the best results for lip augmentation. These products are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that binds with water to increase moisture retention in skin tissue. When injected into the lips, the hyaluronic acid adds volume that results in full, defined, sensuous lips.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Garcia, he will go over your options and help you decide which filler will best fit your needs and deliver the results that you desire. Our team is committed to making sure that you are satisfied with your treatment.

Benefits of Lip Augmentation

  • An enhanced and rejuvenated appearance
  • Quick and safe procedure
  • Little to no downtime
  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles around the lips

Is Lip Augmentation Right for Me?

  • Thin, flat lips
  • Poorly defined lip line
  • Lips that appear dehydrated
  • Downturned lips that make you look as though you are frowning
  • Fine vertical lines along the upper lip

How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost in Jacksonville?

The cost of your lip augmentation will vary based on the final results you desire and how much product is required to achieve those results. Dr. Garcia will review costs and payment options during your consultation. Our office accepts checks, cash, and most major credit cards, as well as flexible financing terms to make the procedure more affordable.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

Dr. Garcia will help you determine the procedure that is most suitable for your concerns. He provides many types of surgical and nonsurgical augmentation procedures, and will recommend the one most suited for achieving the facial harmony that you seek. Dr. Garcia will evaluate your facial anatomy and medical history to determine if you are a good candidate. Other factors that may impact the surgical results include your age, ethnicity and skin type, all of which he will assess. Once he has a full evaluation of your condition, Dr. Garcia will devise an appropriate treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
