Plumper, fuller lips can create a desirable look for women. However, not everyone is born with naturally large lips. Women who desire a more prominent lip may choose a lip augmentation procedure with Dallas, plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven J. White, to create a natural appearing upper and lower lip that looks and feels plumper and fuller. Women seeking dramatic, permanent results may consider lip implants. Made with a synthetic, flexible material that provides outstanding fullness, lip implants can last a lifetime and create gorgeous results. There are also numerous nonsurgical options including injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, as well as fat transfer procedures that inject fat taken from the patient’s body and inserting it into the lips. Dr. White can discuss all of these options during the initial consultation.
Lip Enhancement Options
Women who wish to change the size and shape of their lips once without the worry of routine injections to maintain their look, turn to lip implants to attain their aesthetic goals. This is a surgical procedure that uses a silicone implant, or an implant made out of Gore-Tex that provides a permanent increase in lip size. The silicone material offers a natural, soft result; while synthetic Gore-Tex offers a fuller result with a firmer feel.
Countless women come to our plastic surgery office for routine injections into the lips. Injectable fillers are a great option to create fuller, plumper lips because they are temporary, less expensive and pose less risk than surgery. There are a variety of filler products available including those made of hyaluronic acid, collagen, or calcium hydroxyapatite. Our office carries numerous brands and depending on the condition of the lips and the desired results, an appropriate filer will be used. Another nonsurgical option is a fat transfer. This process involves removing fat from one part of the body using liposuction, and then refining it and injecting it into the lips using a fine syringe.
"I am writing this review in hopes that others would have the privilege to have the best doctor in the world make your body into a master piece. I had gastric bypass 2.5 years ago and needless to say after losing 110lbs my body was just deflected. I thought after losing all this weight I would feel fabulous but I didn't. I actually felt worse. So began my hunt for a plastic surgeon to help me regain my confidence. My search went through 10 plus surgeons until I found Dr. White I normally wouldn't have paid for a consultation but I had read so many positive reviews and set through so many dreaded consultations I thought what the heck lets give it a try. So I called and scheduled my appointment. I walked into the office it was so different, then the moment came when Dr. White walked into the room and I have to say all of my fears and worries just disappeared. He spent over two hours talking with me and my husband answering all of our questions he wasn't like the rest he genuinely cared about me and hearing all of my needs, wants, and desires. So the time came when we talked about cost YES the dreaded part. I will say this he is not cheap by any means but the ole saying is so very true "you get what you pay for". And believe me he is worth every penny he charges! So now your thinking how would I know this? Well I also had several Weightloss friends that were having tummy tucks at the same time as I was so we walked this journey together and my journey compared to theirs was worth the money I paid extra for. My poor girlfriends that had their surgery is now having to come see Dr. White to fix all the horrible work their surgeons did. Dr. White spent 10 hours on my body yes 10 hours he took his time he made me perfect and to think I never even needed 1 pain pill and not even 1 bruise was caused on my body. Dr. White has completely changed my life he truely cares about people and takes pride in his work. I can not begin to thank him enough for the new me!"- R.A. / Google / Nov 18, 2016
"My reason for writing this review is in hopes that someone who is similar to I reads and decides that Dr. White is the doctor for them! I have a very petite body frame, and literally had no chest at all, so I made the decision to have breast augmentation surgery. Aside from making the decision for surgery, choosing Dr. White for my doctor was the best decision I could have made. I was really shy and timid to even be seen by a doctor due to being ashamed of my body, but he made it so comfortable for me by staying professional and constantly reassuring me of his work and vision for me. I can honestly say now after the surgery I feel like a new woman! I have confidence that I never thought I would have in my life, and I owe it to him and his incredible staff!"- R.T. / Google / Jan 29, 2018
"“Look at that, you’ve lost 12 pounds since the surgery! Isn’t that wild?!” Dr. White smiled as he gave me the good news. I smiled back and nodded in agreement, it was amazing that the pounds seemed to be coming off without me even trying, but I realized something in that moment. It wasn’t the weight that I lost that meant anything and it wasn’t even the skin that was removed…it was the 12 years of insecurity and embarrassment that I had shed that meant more than the world to me. All the times I would look in the mirror and feel a sense of dread fill me because of what I saw. All the times I would refuse to take my shirt off while swimming (which would confuse everyone because I was “so fit”) because I was too scared of what other people would think. All the times I would panic simply because my shirt got lifted too high which would expose my stomach for just a brief second. I was living my life as a 23 year old with the self-confidence of my 12 year old self. But all that was changed thanks to Dr. White.I could write a book about how confident and safe I felt in trusting Dr. White with my surgery, but I know most people (including myself) have the attention span of a goldfish so I’ll keep it brief. He’s a compassionate and kind hearted man who truly does care about every single patient that walks through his doors. Changing people’s lives through plastic surgery is his passion, and you can tell that just by listening to him talk. He constantly strives to improve his technique in order to make sure the patients get the best results which is something that’s rare to find in any profession these days. He makes sure you’re prepared for every single potential outcome so that there are no surprises and if there’s something that he didn’t talk about, he has enough experience that he can handle it without missing a beat. Going into this whole process, I had my reservations about the surgery itself and also the cost if we’re being honest. All of those went away pretty much instantly after having my initial consultation with him. I couldn’t be happier with the results even if they threw in a free pony with the surgery, and it was worth every penny.Speaking of Penny, both of his front desk workers (Penny and Jazmin) are fantastic people. I think it speaks volumes to the quality of a business if the employees are amazing as well. Dr. White has truly created an experience that leaves you feeling whole and happy every time you leave. I’ve recommended his office to every single person I talk to whether it’s my family, my friends, or the random guy that asks me if I want guac in my bowl at Chipotle. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank him enough for what he’s done for me, but I figure this is a good start.P.S. I know that it seems out of place for a guy to get something like a tummy tuck but keep in mind that being confident in yourself and happy with your body isn’t something that’s gender specific…it’s universal. That being said, I do find it strange to say I got a tummy tuck, so I’ve opted in to calling it an “Ab Sculpt”. You can use that too, but I do charge a royalty fee."- I.R. / Google / Jan 29, 2018
"I am so happy with my results, I don’t think I could have chosen a better doctor. I googled so many doctors and compared so many photos online and decided to go with Dr.White and I am so glad I did. The front desk girls (Penny and Jazmin) were so nice and they answered all my questions. The day of the surgery I was really nervous and since I already suffer from anxiety I was starting to panic until I saw Dr. White walk in and he reassured me I was gonna be okay and that I was going to wake up from anesthesia lol?? anyway, the nurse placed some numbing medicine where she was going to insert my iv and when I tell you that I felt NO PAIN before my surgery began, i literally felt NO PAIN up until I woke up from surgery. It wasn’t really pain, more like pressure. I got my breast augmentation 2 weeks ago and I am LOVING my results. I can’t stop staring at them, they looked way better than what I expected. I will be recommending him to everyone! ??????"- J.C. / Google / Jan 22, 2018
"I’ve been dealing with gynecomastia my whole life. It runs in the family, but I’ve done everything humanly possible through diet and exercise to get rid of it. I completed a lot of research online to see what can be done to get rid of it, and it seems liposuction of the chest is the only way. Exercise can help some, but it doesn’t solve the problem. My research showed me that I could have had it done for $2500-$15,000, but it is your body and you get what you pay for. Anything short of perfection is unacceptable. Dr. White’s approach to the surgery is different, and he cares tremendously about his patient’s outcome. Dr. White and his staff change lives on a daily basis. They have just recently changed mine and I will be forever grateful. During the consultation and pre-op, he takes the time to show you the results from previous patients, explain the procedure from beginning to end, and actually cares about you and your outcome. If you’re considering cosmetic surgery; you cannot go wrong with Dr. White!"- S.M. / Google / Dec 18, 2017
Lip implant surgery is performed in an accredited surgical facility under general local anesthesia or IV sedation. It is a relatively short procedure that takes about a full hour. Small incisions are typically made on the outer corner of the mouth. These incisions allow the surgeon to create a tunnel within the lip where the implant can then be placed. The implants are placed in a surgical pocket that is created within the internal lip structure and tissue, and once closed with incisions, remain in place for years.
There is little to no scarring with this procedure.
Lip augmentation using an injectable filer takes place right inside our office. The patient’s lips are numbed with a numbing agent, and then the chosen filler is injected through a syringe until the desired fullness has been achieved. This process typically needs to be repeated every 6-8 months depending on how fast the patient’s body absorbs the injected material.
After lip augmentation, regardless of the method used, the lips will instantly look larger. Surgery using an implant will cause the lips to swell and some discomfort may follow, but this will subside in just a few days. Patients are able to return to normal activities within about a week. Exercise should be limited for a couple of weeks. In most cases, the sutures used during surgery will dissolve on their own. Injectable fillers require no downtime. The lips will be slightly swollen for just a day or so. The results from both procedures are beautiful, fuller lips that allow our patients to feel sexier and younger in appearance.
