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
"As a 52 year old male, I had never thought seriously about having a rhinoplasty until a friends young daughter asked me why I had a witch nose. I knew the tip was slightly drooping and there was a bump on the bridge, but it wasn't until I looked at my side profile picture did I realize she was right. I had a previous nose surgery done when I was in college, but it was not done that well and over time I developed obstructed airways and loose cartilage that had contributed to the problem. I knew Dr. White from friends that he operated on and trusted his expertise and skill from their results and experience. I went for my consultation and signed up for the procedure the same day. I have been 100% pleased from start to finish and highly recommend him. Thank you to Dr. White and his staff for a superb job."- R.R. / Google / May 15, 2018

"A year ago, my husband and I decided to start looking into Abdominalplasty surgery after talking about it for a few years. I had two girls via c-section and was left with a lot of extra skin. I’ve never had surgery where I was put under with anesthesia and I was super nervous. We interviewed a few doctors and I always walked out still feeling uneasy about going through with the procedure. When I met Dr White, I instantly knew this was my doctor! Dr White not only got me super excited about my results with the sculpting techniques he does but he put my worries at ease. I went into surgery stress free which made a world of difference for me and my family. The whole experience was better than I expected. No bruising, very little to no pain meds, hardly any pain and my results, are amazing! Better than I ever expected. Within 9 months post op I was down 17 lbs and down two sizes! I LOVE my tummy! I can workout now and see results when before I couldn’t. Another concern of mine was what my belly button would look like. I’m not gonna lie, that part was a little strange. But the final result was perfect! Dr White and his team were amazing! Always there for me and any questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend him! He truly is a miracle worker!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 04, 2018
"when I first went to Dr. White I was sure if the size and look I was trying to achieve. He advised me to go biggger due to my body type. I wasn’t sure but i trusted Him. I went from 32b to 32 DD.650cc in each breast. I love the results!! I would have never thought that DD would actually fit my body. But it did. 650ccs seems like a lot but no. It wasn’t a lot for my body because it fits me perfectly and he knew exactly what would look good on me. My body looks natural. I had no bruising and minimal pain.I’d totally recommend Dr. White to anyone who’s looking to have breast augmentation!"- C.N. / Google / Apr 28, 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.
