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
"“Best in Dallas" is a monumental UNDERSTATEMENT! Dr. White is a superhero with a scalpel! I am well into my 30s, yet have been able to continue modeling professionally with a little proactive anti-aging "help". I'm so very thankful to have Dr. White and his amazing staff in my corner as I age gracefully, and hopefully remain ahead of the game. Despite his status as one of the most well-decorated plastic surgeons in the country, Dr. White is humble, caring and truly an advocate for ethics, safety and patient health. I was most recently in the office for a bit of Botox, and even this is done with more consideration and design than is the norm. "Better Botox" is what Dr. White calls his Botox protocol. I didn't think it was possible, but he has indeed found a better way to administer Botox! It is true that not all Botox is created equal. He's tweaked every step of the process to result in better results, less complications and an overall easier recovery. My Botox results are natural yet beautifully effective, and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome. I didn't feel a thing during treatment due to the sting-free solution he's devised, nor did I have a single bruise! I have always bruised and dreaded the uncomfortable stinging during Botox injections in the past, so this is quite extraordinary! He uses super tiny needles and replaces them frequently, so I literally felt nothing. I look and feel refreshed, and I'm over the moon to have found such a fabulous doctor in which to entrust my appearance. There are not enough stars in the galaxy to sufficiently rate this amazing team!"- M.L. / Google / Oct 07, 2018

"Dr. White is just the best. Highly recommend for skill, knowledge, and staff."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 15, 2018
"I picked up the closest reading material on a flight to Chicago for business. It was then that I began to flip through the magazine and spotted a page within about DMagazine’s best doctors. There, Dr. White’s information was listed under Dallas, Texas, the place I called home. I quickly jotted down his information and carried on. Fast forward several years later when I finally decided that it was time to begin my search for a plastic surgeon. After all, I had been wanting a rhinoplasty for as long as I could remember, and it was time. I’m all about reviews, whether it’s for a doctor, a restaurant, a nail salon...good reviews mean a lot. After many nights of research, all roads let to Dr. White. I recalled that I had written down his information years prior and went ahead and scheduled a consult. The consultation was all that was needed to seal the deal!Dr. White takes his time explaining the procedure in detail. I learned things i didn’t even expect to learn about what was going to happen during the procedure. I wholeheartedly appreciate all the time he and his staff invested in myself and my husband during my consult and each appointment thereafter. It wasn’t long after my consult that I scheduled my procedure (rhinoplasty, turbinoplasty and septoplasty).I experienced little to no pain after arriving home from the hospital and I took regular Tylenol throughout my recovery. On day 10 the external and internal splints were removed and there are just no words to describe the moment I saw myself in the mirror. I cried. I literally cried of happiness. I never in a million years thought my nose and face could look this great and I am absolutely thrilled with my results two weeks post-op. Even with the initial swelling, my nose is perfection! The swelling goes down with time and the shape gets better and better every single day. I didn’t go into the consult with a celebrity photo or a specific vision of what I wanted. I told him what I didn’t like about my nose and that was that. Even with my crippling insecurity, I felt this calmness and trust and I knew he would know what to do and what changes needed to be made. He has performed this surgery a zillion times and knows exactly what to do and you can trust that he will deliver.Dr. White is a perfectionist and he hands down takes his time with you every step of the way. He is a master in his field and it’s no wonder why he has been rated best doctor for so many years. The funny thing is after I had scheduled my procedure I questioned my overall decision to even go through with it...Yet again, was on a flight to California a few weeks before I was scheduled and who did I see in the flight magazine...Dr. White, rated best doctor. It was a sign and I knew then and there that he was meant to be my doctor and I have never been happier.If you are in the research phase, stop your search now, you won’t regret it! He is hands down the best doctor around. Kudos to his support staff, who are the nicest and sweetest girls in town! Rock star team for a rock star doctor!Happiest Patient Ever"- D.L. / Google / Aug 07, 2018
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.
