Lip Augmentation Before and After Photos

Lip Augmentation Before and After PhotosSee All Before and After Photos

A lip augmentation cosmetic surgery adds fullness to thinner lips and enhances lip contours. The surgeon will explain various facets of lip augmentation to the patient during the initial consultation and may showcase lip augmentation before and after pictures.

The primary objective of the surgeon will be to provide the patient with detailed information on lip augmentation to help them make an enlightened decision.

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by dependable board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides lip augmentation to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding communities.


What is Lip Augmentation Before and After Pictures?

Lip augmentation ‘before and after’ pictures are a pair or group of photos belonging to a past lip enhancement patient of the surgeon. These pictures are taken pre and post surgery after the post-op inflammation and redness has resolved, and the complete surgical outcomes are apparent.  

The surgeon will seek the patient’s approval to use these images and present them to new patients discreetly. According to protocol, the identity of the patient cannot be disclosed.

The only goal of the surgeon is to help the new patient develop realistic expectations and understand the procedure through these pictures. These images are a visual tool to help prospective patients understand what a lip enhancement procedure can and cannot do for them.

What is amazing here is digital imagery. This technology has altered industry after industry across the planet and the plastic surgery industry is certainly one of them. Now these poignant pictures can be seen anyone during a consultation and based on what someone sees they can almost predict the future.

A potential patient can predict the future because these pictures offer a clarity that did not exist even a couple of decades ago and not even a decade ago for that matter.



New patients considering lip augmentation may have a limited understanding of the impact that it will have on their lip and facial appearance. While some patients may require fat transfer injections in the lips, implants may be more suitable for others.

For some patients, the surgeon may recommend lip enhancement along with cheek lift surgery or other facial procedures. Patients may find that, at times, only the surgeon’s explanations are insufficient to make a decision. In such cases, lip augmentation before and after images can offer the patient a more comprehensive understanding of the enhancement procedure.


Expectations from the Surgery

During the pre-op consultation process, the primary objective of the surgeon will be to ensure that the patient has a positive mindset, concise cosmetic goals, and reasonable expectations from the surgery.

Lip augmentation before and after pictures can help the surgeon help the patient to develop reasonable expectations from the lip procedure. Patients can form a detailed understanding of what they can expect from lip augmentation surgery by visually comprehending its effects on previous patients.

This process reduces the risks of misunderstandings or future disappointments. Patients with realistic expectations are usually the most satisfied with the final outcomes of the lip augmentation.


Digital Images on Instagram

The surgeon may display lip augmentation before and after images on their website and Instagram but for this exact procedure the images are not on the website but perhaps can be seen during the consultation which is necessary to sit through anyway.

Nevertheless, the images on Dr. Sundin’s website are profound. The breadth of their work is awesome.

Slideshows are a compelling way to display before and after pictures. The surgeon may use Instagram Stories and other avant-garde features to inform patients on lip enhancement. For this purpose, a dedicated Instagram account with a plastic surgery before and after theme can be created.
