Lip Augmentation with Fat Grafting​

Lip Augmentation Overview

1. Expect full and shapely lips

2. Thin lips are an aging sign

About Lip Augmentation with Fat Grafting

A Lip Augmentation restores full and shapely lips for a look of health and youthfulness. Extremely thin lips, especially ones with lip lines or wrinkling, may cause a person to appear stern, severe, or even old.


The lack of lip fullness is usually an inherited trait. However, trauma, tumors, and congenital defects can also cause localized lip deficiencies. Age can also play a role in lip atrophy, lip lines, and wrinkles.

What’s the difference between Fillers and Fat Grafting?

Injectable fillers are convenient, but they are not permanent and may be more expensive over a long period of time. Though less convenient, surgically harvested tissue from the patient themselves will provide a better, and longer-lasting result.


There are a number of soft tissue augmentation procedures designed to provide people with the plumper lip they want. The best and most lasting results are achieved by using the patient’s own tissues.

Candidates for Lip Augmentation

The Lip Augmentation Procedure

In the past, local flaps from the inside of the lips were advanced to give the lips a fuller appearance. More recently, a wide variety of products have been promoted, including cadaveric, or non-living tissue, synthetic implants, and injectable fillers. These various lip plumpers vary in longevity.


The lips are largely composed of voluntary muscles. The grafting of a patient’s own fat or muscle within various tissue planes of the lips has proven to be quite successful. This allows for not only an aesthetically pleasing result, but also a functional one, and the fact that it is living tissue provides for a lasting result.

What to Expect

Dr. Grant A. Fairbanks’s top goal is to create a pleasing, natural look for his patients. He doesn’t want patients to look like they’ve had surgery, and take every measure to ensure our results exceed our patient’s expectations.
