Choosing the Right Lip Augmentation Procedure

Lip Fillers New York NY

If you have pictured your lips as fuller or with a different shape, then you may benefit from a lip augmentation procedure. However, there are several options, and choosing the best for you may be the hardest part. After you learn a little more about each one below, you should speak with an experienced facial plastic surgeon.

Lip Lift

A permanent lip augmentation solution is a lip lift. With the correct technique, a lip lift can help create a more sensuous look, improve your smile, eliminate wrinkles around the mouth and more. At a consultation with your surgeon, you can discuss the changes you’d like or what you are unhappy with, so they can help create a new augmented lip look for you.

Dermal Fillers

Both Restylane® Silk and Juvederm® are injectable fillers that can add volume to your lips. The results are nearly instant, with a much faster healing process than some other lip augmentation options. This option can be used to smooth wrinkles around the lips as well. Dermal fillers are a temporary solution, but can be repeated as needed.

Lip Fat Injections

Fat grafting has a similar process as fillers. However, instead of using injectable solutions, fat harvested from another area of your body is used. The results of this process are still temporary but often last several years, while some dermal fillers could only last six months to a year. Fat grafting is one of the most effective, non-surgical lip augmentation techniques.

SMAS Lip Grafting

If you are already undergoing a SMAS facelift and would like fuller lips, SMAS lip grafting could be the right option. The additional procedure is performed simultaneously, allowing you to heal from both at the same time and see the results of both a facelift and lip augmentation.

Lip Reduction

Some patients may want to reduce the size of their lips instead of making them fuller. Large lips could make you self-conscious or skew the proportions of the face. In some cases, it can affect speech. The lip reduction process usually requires surgery, but is typically a simple procedure.

If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your lips, call to schedule your consultation with Dr. Maurice Khosh at his NYC offices.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
