Lip Surgery – Lip Augmentation by Dr Robert Troell, M.D., F.A.C.S – Laguna Beach & Corona, California and Las Vegas, Nevada
Want bigger, fuller, gorgeous lips like Angelina Jolie and other famous celebrities?
Lip enhancement and augmentation may enhance one’s facial appearance by creating a fuller more seductive look with luscious lips. This fuller appearance can be achieved by one of three different procedures:
A. adding a substance, such as a dermal or skin filler
B. using one’s own soft tissue, lip tissue itself, fat, pericranial scalp tissue
C. adding a soft, solid, silastic lip implant

The only current FDA approved permanent technique using synthetic material is the PermaLip.
This is a revolutionary new soft, solid silastic lip implant. It does not deflate, degrade or rupture over time. Although it’s permanent, it is designed for the ease of placement if a patient wishes to achieve a larger or smaller enhancement or even return to the lips original appearance. It does not limit lip movement and provides a natural look.
Lip Augmentation with Fat Grafting
Before and After Fat Grafting Lip Augmentation Photos:
The pericranial tissue taken from underneath one’s scalp is an excellent alternative, because:
- there is virtually no visible incision hidden under one’s hair
- 60% of the graft remains permanently
- a smooth natural contour and natural soft lip feel remains
- performed under local anesthesia or with additional intravenous sedation
Before and After Lip Pericranial Augmentation Photos:
The limitation of this procedure is:
- a donor site is required to acquire the pericranial tissue
- the procedure to acquire the pericranium takes about 30 minutes
- about 40% of the graft tissue absorbs over the first 3 months
