If you’re interested in a way to augment your lips and enjoy that perfect pout, you’re in luck. Dr. Vitenas is pleased to offer lip augmentation to patients in the Houston area who are interested in a more plump and alluring look.
Enjoy Your Ideal Pout
As the body’s collagen production slows, it’s quite common to notice that your lips have begun to flatten and lose their youthful definition. Additionally, constant expressions, exposure to the elements, drinking from straws, and other activities like smoking can all contribute to the appearance of fine, vertical lip lines that add years on to the appearance.
Until recently, there was little that could be done to improve lip appearance, aside from silicone implants. However, with the newest generation of dermal fillers, noninvasive lip augmentation is easy and can offer immediate results with little to no downtime. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery brings these innovative nonsurgical lip augmentation options to Houston.

How Lip Augmentation Can Help
Visiting our Houston location for your consultation with Dr. Vitenas is an important step in the lip augmentation process. This meeting gives Dr. Vitenas the ability to get to know your physical anatomy, your lifestyle, and your cosmetic goals, that he might best find a way to unite all three. You’ll likely be a great candidate for non-surgical lip augmentation if you’re interested in a way to:
- Plump the lips
- Restore lip symmetry
- Erase lip lines (“Smoker’s Lines”)
- Define lip borders
- Restore the Vermilion Border
- Offer long-lasting, natural-looking improvements
- Enhance the appearance immediately, with little to no downtime
- Hold little risk for serious complications
The Ideal Candidate
An ideal lip augmentation candidate can be anyone in overall good health, who understands the lip augmentation process. Potential patients should hold reasonable expectations for the final results, which Dr. Vitenas will help you understand during your consultation
Although noninvasive lip augmentation can meet the needs of most patients, not everyone is the right fit for an injectable treatment. Those who are pregnant, nursing, or experiencing certain medical conditions may be asked to postpone the treatment until a later time.
A private consultation will be scheduled at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery prior to the lip augmentation procedure. At this time, Dr. Vitenas will perform a brief assessment of the lips, mouth, and facial tissues. He will discuss any medical issues, as well as go over the patient’s desires for lip augmentation. After explaining all of the options, both noninvasive and surgical, a customized treatment plan will be created.

The Lip Augmentation Procedure
A variety of lip augmentation options are available, making the technique customizable for the individual’s needs and desired results. Each injectable product offers its own set of benefits. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Vitenas will determine the best technique to achieve your unique aesthetic goals. Each noninvasive lip augmentation session is performed in one of Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery’s private treatment rooms. Most treatments take less than half an hour. A local or topical anesthetic will be applied prior to the injections, ensuring a comfortable and pain-free treatment.

Two powerful fillers from the Juvéderm family, Ultra and Ultra Plus quickly and consistently add shape and definition to thin or asymmetrical lips. From subtle to dramatic results, Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus create pillowy lips that feel soft and natural to the touch.

A long-trusted trusted Hyaluronic Acid filler, Restylane provides smooth, soft lip plumping abilities. After your treatment, Restylane will continue to attract moisture from surrounding tissues and rejuvenate your natural collagen production to shape thin lips, smooth Smoker’s Lines, and create results that last for up to six months.
The Recovery Process
Noninvasive lip augmentation creates results immediately. You’ll experience little to no recovery time and can immediately get back to your day if you feel so inclined. Mild swelling and bruising are common after filler injections, so patients sometimes prefer to take the afternoon off to recover.
Intermittent ice packs can help to reduce any swelling. Additionally, exercise should be avoided during the first 24 to 48 hours, which also goes a long way towards helping to keep your swelling to a minimum. Makeup can be applied right away.
Enjoying Your Results
Depending on the exact filler and the individual patient’s needs, these benefits can last from six to nine months, even over a full year. As your results begin to fade, a repeat session can safely ensure the benefits continue to look beautiful for months to come.
Lip Augmentation from Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic treatment designed specifically to add volume and shape to thinning lips. The noninvasive techniques can plump small lips, smooth fine lip lines, and define vanishing lip borders. A variety of dermal fillers can quickly and successfully sculpt the lips, restoring symmetry and adding balance to the facial features. Dr. Vitenas can include a filler to enhance the lips, achieving a natural-looking and more youthful appearance, that will last for six months to over a year.
Almost anyone can be a great candidate for lip augmentation at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery. Men and women who feel frustrated with small or thinning lips, are in overall good health, and have an accurate understanding of the lip augmentation procedure will make an ideal candidate. Potential patients should also have reasonable expectations for their final results. Those who are pregnant, nursing, or with certain illnesses may be asked to postpone their treatment until a later date.
Your results will be noticeable immediately. The soft tissue filler will plump and sculpt your lips, eliminating unsightly lines and providing the desired definition. Hyaluronic Acid fillers will continue to work over the following weeks, holding moisture and encouraging your body’s collagen production, ensuring long-lasting results.
Most lip augmentation treatments require little to no downtime. Many patients return to work the same afternoon. However, as slight bruising, mild swelling, and tenderness are common, some people prefer to take the rest of the day off to recover, returning to work or school the following day. For the first 24 to 48 hours, you’ll want to avoid vigorous exercise, as this can increase the risk of swelling. You can wear makeup right away.
Noninvasive lip augmentation techniques are considered safe and extremely effective. While the side effects are generally mild, patients should expect light bruising, swelling, and tenderness that can last for a few days. More serious complications are rare, especially when choosing a board-certified provider, such as Dr. Vitenas.
