Get Voluminous, Natural-Looking Lips!*

The demand for fuller lips is definitely on the rise. However, most patients seeking to enhance their lips are also looking for a natural result. When it comes to looking natural, there is not a one-size-fits-all approach. At Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery in the Richmond and Tysons Corner areas, lip injections are performed as a way to balance your entire face. They are a popular option because they provide a way to accentuate the mouth area by creating softer and fuller looking lips.*

The motivation to enhance one’s lips varies from person to person. These are some of the common reasons patients seek out lip augmentation:

  • Thin lips
  • Loss of volume in the lip area
  • Fine lines or wrinkles around the lips
  • Unevenness of lips
  • ‘Gummy smile’

Lip enhancement can be achieved with non-invasive filler injections that add or restore volume and enhance the shape and contour of the lips. Dr. Reps Sundin, Dr. Burton Sundin, and their professional team at Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, specialize in natural lip enhancement for patients seeking more voluminous and luscious looking lips. Whether you want to replenish volume that has been lost over time or add simply enhance your thin set lips, we blend skill and artistry to augment your lips to fit in organically and attractively in proportion with your facial features.*

Lip Enhancement Options

*Injectable fillers provide a fantastic, non-surgical option to gently enhance and rejuvenate the lip area. Lip augmentation with the use of fillers can be done strategically to enhance, contour, add volume, or even out the lip area. Depending on your particular desires and concerns, we can recommend one of the following filler agents that would produce the best results for you:


 Injectables in the Juvederm® family are the #1 selling hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers in the U.S. and produce smooth, natural results for lip enhancement in adults over 21 years of age. HA is also a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients and moisture to the lips while adding volume. Juvederm® injectables contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort and can last up to 1 year.*

Belotero Balance®
 Belotero Balance® utilizes a hyaluronic acid gel which fills in vertical lip lines and wrinkles by completely integrating into the skin’s tissue producing a smoother lip area that lasts about 6 months.*

 Restylane® is a unique formulation of hyaluronic acid that provides fullness and elasticity to the lips. It maintains lip fullness for up to 6 months in patients over 21. It is an ideal option for patients just starting the lip enhancement process.*

Fat Injections
 Using your own tissue to augment or smooth your lips is also an option. This involves using fat from another area of your body and re-injecting it into the lips. Fat injections offer the benefit of lasting years as opposed to months giving you a much more long term solution to lip enhancement.  *

All lip enhancement options are minimally invasive and can be done with the use of local anesthetics. Patients can return to their routine activities immediately following the procedure. Side effects are generally minimal with slight bruising and swelling of the injected areas. In less than an hour, you can have full, youthful, and beautiful looking lips that amplify your outward appeal.*
