Beautiful, full lips are not always on the genetic marker for some people. Others find that as they get older, their full lips become thin and less sensual. Whether you want to enhance your lips beyond what nature gave you, or you want a more youthful pout, lip augmentation can give you the sensual lips you desire.

Residents in San Raphael and Petaluma that want to achieve fuller, plumper lips can rely on the facial plastic surgery experts at our Mill Valley clinic. Dr. Evan Ransom, our double board-certified plastic facial surgeon, is an exceptionally skilled surgeon that can perform both surgical and non-surgical lip augmentation procedures. You can have fuller lips in as little as one visit to our office, giving your mouth and smile the makeover you desire.

Surgical and Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement

In most cases, Dr. Ransom advises our patients seeking lip enhancement to try temporary, non-surgical options before turning to plastic surgery. He makes this suggestion for two reasons. For one, many people are happy with the results of dermal fillers for lip augmentation. The results last for many months and the procedure requires no downtime. Secondly, even if a permanent surgical solution is desired, it is beneficial to see the difference using injections first to determine the best surgical option.

If you decide you do want to pursue a permanent lip enhancement, Dr. Ransom can discuss the various options available. For some, fat grafting or lip implants are the best options. For others, a V to Y lip augmentation is required to get the results they desire. As with all our cosmetic procedures, Dr. Ransom will take the time to personalize your treatment to match your expectations, achieving beautiful, natural-appearing results.

Our Mill Valley clinic is close by both San Raphael and Petaluma for your convenience. If you are ready to learn more about enhancing the fullness of your lips, contact us today to schedule your consultation.
