Lip Augmentation

In the quest for a youthful and vibrant appearance, lip enhancement has emerged as a popular choice among individuals looking to rejuvenate their lips. The allure of fuller, well-defined lips has led to a significant increase in the number of Americans opting for lip augmentation procedures. With advancements in cosmetic surgery, options like the PermaLip™️ implant and various injectables such as soft tissue fillers, Dysport, and Botox, have revolutionized the way we approach lip enhancement, offering solutions tailored to individual desires and needs.


What Is Lip Augmentation?

Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure aimed at enhancing the size, shape, and fullness of the lips. Whether due to natural thinness, aging, or simply a desire for a more voluptuous appearance, this procedure can offer significant improvements. Options range from the permanent solution provided by PermaLip™️ implants to temporary yet impactful results achieved with injectable fillers like soft tissue fillers, Dysport, and Botox.

Choosing Between PermaLip™️ Implants and Injectables

PermaLip™️ implants offer a permanent increase in lip volume, with a soft, solid silicone cylinder designed for a natural look and feel. For those seeking a less permanent solution or wishing to experiment with volume before committing to implants, injectables provide a versatile and temporary alternative. These fillers, including soft tissue fillers, Dysport, and Botox, can be tailored to achieve desired results, from subtle enhancements to more dramatic changes in lip volume and shape.

How Is Lip Augmentation Performed?

What to Expect from Your Lip Augmentation

Recovery times and outcomes vary depending on the procedure. PermaLip™️ implants offer immediate and permanent results with a short recovery period, while injectables offer immediate results with virtually no downtime. Dr. Daube and our team will guide you through the recovery process, ensuring that you achieve the best possible outcome for your lip augmentation.


How long does lip filler last?

Juvederm and Restylane are popular lip fillers used at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics. These fillers typically last between 6 to 12 months, depending on individual factors like metabolism, lifestyle, and the type of product used. Regular touch-ups can help maintain the desired volume and shape.

Does lip filler hurt?

The process of injecting lip fillers can cause some discomfort, but it’s generally well-tolerated. At Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, we use fillers that contain a local anesthetic to minimize pain. Additionally, a topical numbing cream can be applied beforehand to reduce discomfort during the procedure.

How to get bigger lips permanently?

For those seeking a permanent solution to achieve fuller lips, Gulf Coast Facial Plastics offers PermaLip™️ implants as an effective option. PermaLip™️ is a lip implant crafted from a very soft, solid cylinder of silicone, designed to enhance lip size permanently. These biocompatible implants ensure a long-lasting increase in lip volume, providing a natural and full appearance. The procedure is surgical, offering permanent results that stand in contrast to the temporary outcomes achieved with lip fillers.

What is in lip filler?

The lip fillers used at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics, such as Juvederm and Restylane, primarily contain hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps add volume and hydration to the lips, providing a natural and smooth appearance.

How often can you get lip fillers?

Generally, you can get lip fillers every 6 to 12 months. The exact frequency depends on how your body metabolizes the filler and your desired aesthetic goals. It’s important to consult with our specialists to determine an appropriate schedule for touch-ups.

Can I put lip balm on after lip fillers?

Yes, you can apply lip balm after getting lip fillers, but it’s recommended to wait a few hours post-procedure to allow the treatment area to settle. It’s also important to use a gentle, non-irritating lip balm to avoid any discomfort or disturbance to the treated area.

Do lip implants look natural?

Yes, lip implants provided at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics are designed to look natural. They are customized to suit your facial structure and aesthetic goals, ensuring a balanced and harmonious enhancement of your lips.

How do lip implants feel?

After the initial healing period, lip implants typically feel like a natural part of your lips. They are designed to mimic the natural feel of lip tissue, ensuring comfort and a natural expression in the long term. Initially, there may be a period of adjustment as you get used to the sensation of the implants.
