Lip Augmentation Surgery by Dr. Jaibaji
What Is Lip Augmentation Surgery?
Lip augmentation can make your lips fuller and more shapely. Here in San Diego, Dr. Jaibaji performs lip augmentation on patients who want to improve the look of their lips and mouth. You can choose between surgical or non-surgical methods for lip augmentation.
When to Choose Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation can treat loss of tissue volume in:
- Cupid’s bow
- Inner lip
- Lipstick lines
- Outer mouth
Lip enhancement increases the ‘kissable’ area of the lips. Dr. Jaibaji can also reduce wrinkles around your mouth for a total rejuvenation. Every patient is different; you may require only enhanced lip volume, or you may need reshaping and rejuvenation as well.
Before and After Lip Augmentation
Depending on your goals for lip augmentation, Dr. Jaibaji can tailor the procedure and the techniques that are used.
“I recently had a minor procedure done at Dr. Jaibaji’s office to enhance my lips. I was hesitant at first but after speaking to other patients who had this procedure done and seeing their results, I decided to move forward. Dr. Jaibaji did an excellent job of making me feel comfortable throughout the process. His staff was also exceptional. They treated me as if I was the most important patient they’d encountered all day. I love the outcome and I highly recommend Dr. Jaibaji for any cosmetic procedures you may be considering!”

Non-surgical lip enhancements use fillers to make lips more plump and shapely. These days, the most popular lip enhancement techniques use hyaluronic acid fillers. Lip augmentation can also be performed using collagen injections, fat transfer, or liquid silicone.
If you want a lip enhancement with immediate results and no downtime, non-surgical lip augmentation may be right for you. Fillers plump up the lips and provide the full, sexy lips that you desire. Lip enhancement is an excellent choice for women whose lips have gotten thinner with age, or those who were simply born with thin lips.
During your appointment, the doctor injects filler into specific areas of the lips. Extra care is taken to maintain the natural lines and borders of your lips.Maintaining the natural borders of your lips allows you to have natural-looking plump lips.
Before performing the injections, the doctor may use a numbing cream or dental block to help reduce your discomfort. Your results will depend on the type of filler used. The results of each filler last a different length of time. The results of hyaluronic acid injections last 8-12 months. Following a non-surgical lip augmentation, some patients report minor bruising and swelling, which subsides in a few days.
Although less common, lip implants can provide a more permanent lip augmentation. During surgery, Dr. Jaibaji would place a synthetic implant within the lips. These small implants are made of GORE-TEX® or other materials.
Surgical lip augmentations can be performed under local or general anesthesia. The doctor makes a small incision inside your mouth where a scar will not show. Through this incision, the doctor is able to place the surgical implant. Once the implant is in place, the incision will be closed.

After your lip augmentation surgery, you may have some swelling and bruising around the lips while they recover. The bruising and swelling typically subside within two weeks of surgery. Once the swelling subsides, you can appreciate the results of your surgical lip augmentation.
