Some people simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. Other people have noticed their lips thinning over time and may also have seen vertical lip lines become more noticeable and experience less definition around their lips.
Lip Fillers are an excellent option for anyone who wants to add more volume to their lips or wants to reduce the effects of aging around the lips. Lip fillers can balance the appearance of your lips and make them fuller, and can also give your lips a more youthful, defined appearance*.
What Can Lip Filler Do For Your Lips?
- Create a defined cupid’s bow
- Create side to side symmetry of lips
- Enhance the fullness in the center of lips
- Add projection on the profile
- Create a more balanced lip to eye ratio
Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation With Dr. Wise
Dr. Wise offers a variety of fillers to enhance and augment the lips including Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, and Restylane Silk. These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally occurring substance in the skin.
They are considered finer, silkier fillers which are specifically designed to provide natural looking results. They contain no animal ingredients, are FDA approved, and only available from a licensed physician.
Lip injections are non-surgical procedures which can be done with just local anesthetic administered by Dr. Wise.
Juvederm Ultra Plus is typically used when patients desire a deep filling effect, e.g. a patient with thin lips desires fuller lips. Juvederm Ultra Plus can last up around 6-9 months for the initial injection with longevity increasing with future treatments.*
Dr. Wise's Juvederm Volbella in New Jersey can be an effective option for patients who want to address aging skin around their lips and add subtle volume (enhancing the vermillion border). This filler is typically used to smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines above the upper or below the lower lip. Juvederm Volbella is the longest lasting lip filler which can last up to one year.*
Restylane Silk is another preferred lip filler by Dr. Wise to augment the lips and smooth wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other products. Restylane can provide superior definition in the lips and typically lasts around 6-9 months.*
Pouty, Perfect Lips
Lovely, plump, pouty lips are an attractive facial feature. If you would like to enhance your lips, we offer professional lip enhancement treatments to plump thin lips, create a lovely “cupid’s bow,” or a more defined lip structure. It can be exciting and rewarding to see the subtle difference created with an increase in the volume of your bottom lip, top lip, or both.
Lip Enhancement at its Best: Dr. Wise
Dr. Wise is one of the Southland’s most respected facial plastic surgeons. He is Double Board-Certified and has performed over 5,000 facial surgeries to date. Beyond his exceptional level of skill in both surgical and non-surgical enhancements, he has an artistic eye and is able to gauge the precise quantity of filler to use, injected into the perfect area of the lips to produce beautiful, natural-looking lip enhancements.
Lip Injections: What Filler Should Be Used?
Several dermal fillers are effective for lip enhancement. Dr. Wise will determine which filler will be appropriate to achieve your personal aesthetic vision. Many patients prefer lip enhancement with Volbella, the latest FDA-approved filler in the Juvéderm line. Created as a smoother, finer gel, perfect for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing lip lines, Volbella injections create a very natural look, subtle, lovely, and fresh.
Benefits of Lip Enhancement with Volbella
The benefits of Volbella include:
- Results last longer – up to a year.
- Hyaluronic gel, with lidocaine for comfortable treatment.
- Smoother, thinner gel for a naturally refreshed, plump lip appearance.
- Smooths lip lines without an overfilled look.
How Many Treatments Will I Need for Lip Enhancement?
You need only one treatment, but results will fade with time. The body naturally breaks down the filler used to enhance your lips, and retreatment will be needed in time. The treatment is very short, requiring about fifteen to thirty minutes, depending upon what you hope to achieve.
Dr. Wise is an expert injector when it comes to lip treatments. For all lip injections, Dr. Wise can use the Cannula technique. The Cannula technique uses a blunt needle which minimizes the chances of bruising, swelling and excessive trauma during and after the procedure. While patients will still experience some swelling, it should subside within just a couple days.
After a simple procedure with Dr. Wise you will leave our office with plumper, fuller lips and will not have to rely on make-up and other short term options to enhance your lips*.
Want Something More Long-Term? Consider PermaLip
Dr. Wise also offers PermaLip, a solid silicone lip implant that eliminates the need for you to come back for a new injection every year or two years. Permalip is tapered at its edges so it fits well with the shape of your lips and looks natural.* The PermaLip insertion procedure can be done in the doctor’s office with only local anesthetic.
Even though it is designed to be long-term, you can easily have PermaLip removed if you change your mind.

PermaLip™ Lip Implantation
PermaLip™ is a revolutionary method of enhancing lips in a single safe procedure that does not require repeated treatments. Once the procedure is performed, a person can enjoy full, youthful lips for many years to come*.
Dr. Wise is pleased to offer his patients a more long-lasting result for lip augmentation with PermaLip™ Lip Implantation. This revolutionary procedure can help address the effects of the sun, stress, and aging, which cause lips to sag and lose their natural plumpness. In addition, with PermaLip™ Lip Implantation, Dr. Wise can give those patients desiring fuller lips a more long-term, cost-effective solution*.
Dr. Wise uses PermaLip™ Lip Implantation to create fuller lips for his patients, while maintaining the natural contours of the lips and mouth*. The PermaLip™ Lip Implant is silicon-based, meaning it is both soft and flexible, allowing it to adapt to the shape and natural movement of the patient’s mouth without the risk of rupture or deflation over time.
PermaLip™ Lip Implantation
PermaLip™ Lip Implantation is a groundbreaking, surgical treatment for a more long term lip augmentation. You will collaborate with Dr. Wise and develop a customized plan for your lips, as these implants are available in different lengths and projections.
Dr. Wise recommends his patients stop any blood-thinning medications one week prior to the procedure, if medically permissible. In addition, to prepare for this procedure, Dr. Wise recommends, but does not mandate, that his smoking patients stop one week prior to and one week following the procedure.
For the procedure, the patient can expect it to take less than an hour for both upper and lower lips. The procedure itself has minimal pain and discomfort for the patient.
After the procedure, the patient may experience some swelling and bruising. The pain associated with this procedure is generally minimal but can be managed with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Wise.
You can expect results that are smooth and symmetric. PermaLip™ Lip Implantation with Dr. Wise leaves you with no visible scarring and natural-looking, beautiful lips*.
Before & After
Coming from a family of jowls, I wanted to have my neck improved since the age of 40. I am glad I waited to 60 so that I could experience Dr. Wise and his staff. The results were amazing. After 4 sons and a corporate career, I looked tired and worn. Now I look as good as I feel. Thank you Dr. Wise and your staff who were with me every step of the way.
