About Lip Augmentation
Whether you were born with slim lips or you are noticing less fullness in your lips as you get older, nonsurgical lip augmentation may help create a full, well-shaped pout. Board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas offer several injectable fillers that can temporarily volumize the mouth for a fuller look. If you are interested in learning more about nonsurgical augmentation, contact Allegro MedSpa of Novato in Novato, CA to schedule an initial consultation. Our aesthetic team will discuss your options and create your personal treatment plan for lip augmentation.
- Dermal Fillers
Injectable fillers, such as Restylane or Juvéderm, can add temporary volume to the mouth and decrease the visibility of fine lip lines.

Nonsurgical lip enhancement can give you more voluminous lips and a shapelier mouth. Based on your concerns and goals, we may make a recommendation on which filler may be the best option for you. Ideal candidates for lower and/or upper lip enhancement at Allegro MedSpa of Novato:
- Have thin lips naturally or have age-related volume loss in the lips
- Have asymmetrical or uneven lips
- Want to improve the entire face
- Have good health
Minimally invasive lip enhancement may be achieved with dermal fillers, such as Restylane or Juvéderm. Injections can be done in one of our treatment rooms as an outpatient procedure. Based on the brand of the dermal filler selected, a local anesthetic may be part of the formula or else a numbing cream may be applied on the treated area. Once your lips are cleaned, multiple injections will be administered in the selected areas, and then the filler will be massaged to give better results. You will be allowed to leave immediately after your treatment to continue your regular routine.
What to Expect
It is important to pay attention to the recovery instructions given by our office to have faster healing and the best results. After a lip enhancement, your mouth will most likely feel tender or sore for several days. Cold packs and nonprescription pain relievers are suggested to address any swelling and discomfort. The improvements from nonsurgical lip augmentation may be visible for about 3 – 12 months based on the brand selected for your procedure. Talk to our aesthetic team about maintenance sessions to freshen up your lips.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does lip augmentation cost?
Your cost for augmentation will vary based on the type of dermal filler used. In your consultation, we will develop your treatment plan before discussing your costs. Allegro MedSpa of Novato takes several payment methods, and we can help you locate low-interest financing to make your procedure easier to afford.
Can I get the lips of a specific celebrity?
You might come in and request the specific lips of an actor or actress. Having pictures of lips you want will help us understand your goals; however, it can be unrealistic to create the lips of someone else. In your first appointment, we will listen to your wants before talking about your choices (implants, dermal fillers, or a fat transfer) to augment your lips. After that, we will create your personal treatment plan.
Is lip augmentation reversible?
Since dermal fillers are temporary, you can elect to maintain your results prior to lip augmentation by discontinuing treatments. For dermal fillers, the formula will eventually absorb into your body so your lips will return to their normal appearance.
