Lip Augmentation in Detroit, MI
Nothing says “sexy” like sumptuous, voluminous lips. In fact, thin, flat lips and vertical “smoker’s lines” often make people look and feel older and less sexually attractive. Lip augmentation procedures may add volume, fullness, contour and definition to your lips, rejuvenating your entire facial appearance. Birmingham Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., offers lip augmentation for men and women who live in and around Detroit, Farmington Hills and the surrounding communities of Michigan.
Our skin naturally slows down collagen production as a result of the aging process, reducing skin elasticity and volume, and affecting the volume and plumpness of our lips. Loss of volume, fullness and definition in the lip region often makes people appear older than they actually feel. Smokers and people with a lot of sun damage may exhibit severe loss of volume, shape and fullness in the lips. At Birmingham Plastic Surgery, Dr. Karaca can restore fullness, volume and definition to your lips using lip augmentation, a procedure that rejuvenates your overall facial appearance.
What Is Lip Augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that increases fullness, volume, and definition in the lips. It also diminishes vertical lines and wrinkles around the lips and rejuvenates the lip area. Lip augmentation procedures may be performed on the lower lip, upper lip or both at the same time. The procedure may enhance specific characteristics, such as shape, fullness and volume, adding definition and contour. Lip augmentation may be achieved using either implants or dermal fillers.
At Birmingham Plastic Surgery, Dr. Karaca and his staff use injectable dermal fillers to enhance lips and add fullness, volume, and definition. Injectable dermal fillers offer a quick and non-surgical procedure that can add plumpness and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. Injectable dermal fillers are a fast and simple treatment that effectively imparts fullness, contour, and youthfulness to the lips. This procedure requires no anesthesia, incisions or sedation, although some patients request a topical anesthetic to prevent potential discomfort. The injections take only a few minutes to administer, and there is no recovery period or downtime following the treatment. The results typically last six to nine months.
Details of Lip Injections
There are a variety of dermal fillers available for use in lip augmentation, and new products are constantly being developed. AlloDerm®, Restylane® Silk and Belotero® are popular products that produce excellent results by delivering hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin and stimulates collagen production. When injected into the lips, hyaluronic acid increases hydration and volume, adding contour and smoothness to full, natural-looking lips.
During your initial consultation at Birmingham Plastic Surgery, Dr. Karaca will evaluate your condition and goals to help you determine which filler is best for you. Dr. Karaca is committed to making sure that you are satisfied with your procedure and will answer any questions you may have during the initial consultation.

How Much Does Lip Augmentation Cost in Detroit?
The cost of lip augmentation varies, depending on whether you choose injections or implants, and whether you do both lips. Since it is generally performed as a cosmetic procedure, lip augmentation is not covered by most health insurance carriers. Dr. Karaca provides flexible financing options to help his patients manage the cost of their makeover. We also accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
