Lip enhancement, also known as lip augmentation, enhances the natural volume of the lips, usually by injecting a specially formulated fat substitute into the lips. It can help restore fullness that may have been lost due to aging, creating a more youthful appearance for the patient, and it’s also a great option for individuals who have never had much lip volume. Bayshore Plastic Surgery of Tampa offers lip augmentation from Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald, who has been performing cosmetic surgery procedures for patients from St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Naples, and elsewhere in Florida for more than 16 years. Dr. Greenwald will use his skills and experience in lip enhancement to give you fuller lips that look and feel natural. He and the staff at Bayshore will inform you about the different techniques available for lip augmentation, and help you make the best choice for your needs.

Lip enhancement is typically achieved by injecting of one of the following fillers:

  • Prevelle – contains a low concentration of hyaluronic acid, so swelling is minimum and typically disappears within 24 hours
  • Restylane – a clear gel formulated to replicate a naturally occurring acid in the body
