Lip augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of your lips. We perform non-surgical lip augmentation using personalized dermal fillers that enhance the contours, color, and fullness of your lips, making them look soft, supple, and voluminous.
Achieve supple, voluminous, and rosy lips
Lip augmentation is a popular cosmetic treatment to achieve fuller, more voluminous lips. Lip fillers in Katy are injected into the lips to add volume and shape. They can also improve the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. Our medical providers deliver a few strategic injections in and around the lips. The injections deposit hyaluronic acid molecules underneath your tissues, thus allowing us to modify the shape and size of your lips.
Lip augmentation can do the following:
- Improve the shape and size of your lips
- Make your lips look fuller
- Make your lips look bright and rosy
- Reduce fine lines and perioral lines around the mouth
- Reverse age-related loss of volume from the lips
We offer hyaluronic acid fillers to enhance your lips
We perform lip augmentation using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm Volbella XC, Restylane Kysse, and Restylane Silk. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring gel that binds up to 1,000x its weight in water to make your lips look hydrated and plump. The gradual loss of hyaluronic acid because of aging leads to thin and dry-looking lips. We deliver personalized doses of hyaluronic acid to your lips to enhance their shape and size.
Each lip filler has a unique consistency and formula suitable for different treatment areas and levels of correction. Injecting a random filler into the lips can cause unwanted side effects or results, such as overfilled or pillowy lips. Our doctor carefully assesses your lips and discusses your goals, following which she chooses a lip filler in Katy that’s truly appropriate for you. We personalize the treatment to ensure natural-looking results.

What to expect from your lip augmentation session
During your lip augmentation procedure, your doctor will inject the dermal fillers into your lips. You may feel a slight sting or prick when the needle first enters your skin, but the injectable fillers contain numbing agents that minimize discomfort. Most lip augmentation procedures take less than 30 minutes to complete.
Side effects and recovery after lip augmentation
After your procedure, you may experience some side effects, such as swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These side effects are usually temporary and will resolve within a few days. You should avoid strenuous activity and exposure to sunlight for the first 24 hours after your procedure. But you can resume most other daily activities.
What you can expect from lip augmentation results
The results of your lip augmentation will vary depending on the type of lip filler in Katy used and the amount injected. You will likely see some immediate results after your procedure, but the full effects of the dermal fillers will be evident after a few days. Most dermal fillers last for six months to a year, following which you need maintenance treatments.
