Lip Enhancement in NYC
Full and luscious lips are something many women strive for. However, genetics and age often have a plan of their own and may leave you with thinner lips. Dr. Karlinsky can perform a non-surgical lip augmentation using dermal fillers or fat transfer to achieve a fuller, completely natural-looking smile you will love showing off.
What is lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation is a reshaping or plumping of the lips through injectable fillers or facial fat transfer. At New Look New Life, Dr. Karlinsky uses a range of dermal fillers—sometimes called lip plumpers—to help patients achieve fuller lips. She is highly skilled in safely and effectively using lip injections such as Restylane, Restylane Lyft, and Juvéderm.
Why choose lip augmentation?
- Achieve fuller, larger lips
- Enlarge naturally thin lips
- Plump lips that have thinned with age
- Balance uneven lips
- Reduce the appearance of thin lines around the lips
Is a lip augmentation right for me?
Dr. Karlinsky can use lip fillers and fat transfer from another part of your body to enlarge your lips and achieve lip fullness. Patients are often surprised by how a simple improvement to their lips can awaken their whole facial appearance.

How soon can I have lip augmentation?
Following a brief consultation with Dr. Karlinsky, you will be on your way to scheduling your lip filler appointment.
When will I see the results of my lip augmentation?
You will notice your lip enhancement results immediately—that’s the beauty of lip injections.
You will leave Dr. Karlinsky’s office with lush lips the same day as your treatment. Due to swelling, your lips will initially look somewhat larger than their final appearance after complete healing takes place. Dr. Karlinsky is committed to natural enhancements; so, while your lips will look and feel much fuller, they will be evenly and appropriately sized to fit your facial features.
How should I prepare for lip augmentation?
Lip augmentation requires almost no preparation, but you should avoid smoking for two weeks before and after the procedure to promote swift healing.
How is lip augmentation performed by Dr. Karlinsky?
Using a topical anesthesia, Dr. Karlinsky will gently numb your lips to ease your comfort during the injections. Many of the lip fillers contain numbing agents themselves, so the procedure is virtually painless. Depending on your desired level of enhancement, she will expertly make small injections across the lips to insert the filler. Careful attention is paid to balance and a smooth, natural feel.
How long does lip augmentation take?
Lip enhancement with synthetic fillers can be completed in less than 10 minutes.
How long does recovery take?
There is virtually no recovery period after lip injections. You may feel slight tenderness as the topical anesthesia wears off; this is easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Some swelling or bruising may occur and will resolve in a week or so.
What are the lip augmentation risks?
Lip augmentation through facial fillers is extremely safe. Occasionally, patients experience some itching or redness at the injection sites. The risk of bleeding, infection, or uneven lips is rare but possible.
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky’s cell phone immediately.
How long will lip augmentation last?
Synthetic lip fillers typically last about six months and can easily be repeated in a follow-up procedure.
How much does lip augmentation cost?
Lip augmentation is a very affordable way to enhance your appearance with a simple yet rejuvenating procedure. Dr. Karlinsky will review the costs with you during your consultation.
What are Dr. Karlinsky’s patients saying about lip augmentation?
What are the alternatives to lip augmentation?
Lip filler treatment is available through a range of synthetic products. Some patients opt for fat transfer, involving the injection of your own fat cells into the lips, which tends to produce longer lasting results. Many patients choose to have other fillers or injectables added to the face, such as Botox, Dysport, or Restylane, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in other areas of the face. These procedures can be performed at the same time for an even more significant rejuvenation.
