Full, sumptuous lips are often regarded as the hallmark of sensuality. Even for those who are not concerned with sex appeal, youthful lips can express greater confidence, while thinning lips are one of those annoying marks of our inevitable aging process. Lip augmentation is a non-surgical procedure that renews thin, flat lips by increasing volume and enhancing lip shape with injectable fillers composed of hyaluronic acid.

Dr. Kaye Riolo, who is board certified in plastic surgery, offers lip augmentation using the latest injectable fillers. She performs the injection herself in her Fresno office.

When to Consider Lip Augmentation

Men and women who are self-conscious about the loss of fullness in their lips may benefit from lip augmentation. Lips tend to thin with age and lip augmentation can turn back the clock, subtly, without making you look over-treated. Some people have thin lips to begin with, or an imbalance in the relative volume of either the upper or the lower lip. The treatment not only improves volume, but can help smooth out:

  • Smoker’s lines
  • Laugh lines
  • Lipstick lines
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
