Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement

Larger, “poutier” youthful lips are becoming more popular with patients. Dr. Velargo strives to accomplish your desires while maintaining a very natural look.

Dr. Velargo performs lip enhancement utilizing four techniques: non-surgical lip augmentation with fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm, a surgical lip lift, a surgical lip advancement, or a surgical lip augmentation with SMAS grafting.
