Our NYC Lip augmentation or lip reduction are procedures designed to proportionally balance the lips with the rest of the features of the face and enhance your appearance.
Lips that are out of sync with the rest of a person’s facial features can cause the individual to lose confidence in their appearance, have lower self-esteem, or even become the subject of unwanted attention. The fact is, the lips play a significant role in balancing the features of the face. Enter one of the top providers of lip augmentation NYC has to offer, Dr. Matthew White. Understanding the intricacies and details of lip procedures, Dr. White knows that aging can cause lips to thin and lose volume.
Additionally, genetics can cause a person’s lips to be overly large and even inhibit activities such as talking and eating. Lip augmentation and lip reduction are two procedures Dr. Matthew White can use to restore balance to the face and create a more youthful appearance.

Lip augmentation and lip reduction help create harmony among all the patient’s facial features. The benefits of lip augmentation and lip reduction include:
Any patient who is unsatisfied with the way his or her lips look in proportion with the rest of the face is a potential candidate for lip augmentation or reduction. Ideal candidates for the procedure will be in good health and have realistic expectations in regard to the results each procedure can achieve. Many lip augmentation patients seek to restore a more youthful appearance, or simply to enhance the contour of their lips for a fuller result. Some patients elect to have the procedure performed in combination with a mini-facelift or a neck lift to achieve even more comprehensive results.
Lip reduction candidates can be broken down into four main categories:
Our experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Matthew White, will meet with you for an initial consultation to discuss your needs and goals. He will answer all your questions and help you determine the treatment options that are able to meet your expectations. It is Dr. White’s ultimate goal to provide his patients with the absolute best lip augmentation NYC has to offer.
If you’d like to enhance the appearance of your mouth with a lip augmentation procedure, your first step will be to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. White. During that meeting, he will ask you to describe exactly how you’d like your lips to look once the treatment is complete. If possible, it’s a good idea to bring photos of your ideal outcome to your appointment, to ensure that you and Dr. White are on the same page regarding your cosmetic goals.
Once he understands what you hope to accomplish with your procedure, Dr. White will assess your lips to identify what a lip augmentation can do for you. He will then talk to you about your medical history to determine if you’re an ideal candidate. For example, he’ll ask about previous surgeries, allergies, medical conditions, medications you’re currently taking, and your history with both surgical and non-invasive cosmetic procedures.
It’s important to be up front with Dr. White about your allergies and medical history, because there’s a possibility that you may experience an adverse reaction to the materials used for your procedure. However, if Dr. White knows about all of your allergies in advance, he can approach your treatment in a way that ensures your safety.
After your initial consultation, Dr. White will compose a custom treatment plan based on your cosmetic goals and the current appearance of your lips. This plan will include his approach for the procedure, the results you can look forward to, your anticipated financial investment, and any risks and complications you should be aware of. In addition, he will outline exactly what you can expect before, during and after the procedure, so that you feel completely prepared every step of the way.
There are many treatment options for patients seeking lip augmentation. Treatments utilize injectable fillers, such as Juvéderm®, to provide lip enhancement that can last from 6-12 months, and are performed as in-office procedures that take 30-60 minutes to complete. Other lip augmentation options include hyaluronic acid-based injectables such as Restylane®, or fat injections that can provide a very long-lasting result. During the consultation process, Dr. White will discuss which injectable filler will meet your aesthetic goals.
Although the procedure uses very thin needles with pre-measured doses administered to the target areas, a topical anesthetic is used to ensure the patient is as comfortable as possible. The solution is injected very carefully and delicately to rejuvenate lip contours with balanced results.
During your lip augmentation NYC procedure, Dr. White will carefully plump your mouth to achieve your desired outcome. You can rest assured that all of his enhancements will be conservative, resulting in a natural improvement.
The longevity of your results will depend on the type of filler used. Some options only last for a few months before you need another treatment, while others can endure for up to a year. Regardless of the filler Dr. White administers, it’s important to note that the results of your lip augmentation will be temporary. As such, you will need to repeat the procedure at regular intervals in order to maintain your plump new appearance.
