Some people have naturally thin lips and want to achieve a fuller appearance. Others have noticed their lips thinning over time, vertical lip lines becoming more noticeable, or they are experiencing some loss of definition around the lips.
Lip Fillers are an excellent option for anyone wanting to add more volume to their lips or reduce the effects of aging in that area. Lip fillers can balance the appearance of your lips, making them fuller, and giving them a more youthful, defined look*.
What Can Lip Filler Do For Your Lips?
- Create a defined cupid’s bow
- Create side to side symmetry
- Enhance the fullness in the center of lips
- Add projection on the profile
- Create a more balanced lip to eye ratio
- Give you the look of luscious, full lips
Non-Surgical Lip Augmentation at the Wise Center for Plastic Surgery
Dr. Wise and Nurse Practitioner Radhika offer a variety of dermal fillers to enhance and augment the lips, including Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Kysse. These fillers consist of hyaluronic acid gel, which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin.
The specific kinds of fillers that Dr. Wise and NP Radhika use in the lips are considered finer and silkier, specifically designed to provide results that look natural. They are all FDA approved, contain no animal ingredients, and are only available from a licensed physician.
Lip injections are non-surgical procedures that can be performed with just topical anesthetic. Nerve blocks and Pro-Nox (Nitrous Oxide) are available upon request as well.
Dr. Wise and/or NP Radhika will first discuss your aesthetic goals with you in a private, complimentary consultation, in order to determine which dermal filler can help you achieve the lips you desire.
Juvederm lip filler in New Jersey can be an effective option for patients who want to address aging skin around their lips. Over time, the vermillion border tends to lose its shape and definition. Dr. Wise prefers the Juvederm line of fillers to reshape and redefine the lips, add subtle volume, and smooth out the appearance of vertical lines both above and below the lower lip. Juvederm lip fillers typically last around 6-9 months.*
Restylane Kysse is the preferred lip filler for both Dr. Wise and Nurse Practitioner Radhika for adding volume and smoothing out wrinkles around the mouth. This filler is designed specifically for the lips, providing flexible movement and natural-looking results. Kysse adds youthful volume and oomph, and is an excellent option for patients seeking luscious, plump lips, and superior definition. Restylane Kysse is the longest-lasting lip filler on the market, clinically proven to last up to one year.*
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 Tri-State Area’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.
Lip Injections: What Filler Should Be Used?
Lip enhancement can be achieved with several types of dermal fillers. Dr. Wise or NP Radhika will determine which filler will be appropriate to achieve your personal aesthetic vision. Most patients prefer lip enhancement with Restylane Kysse, the latest FDA-approved filler in the Restylane line. Designed specifically for the movement of lips, as well as long-lasting results, Kysse injections create a natural, subtle, fresh and lovely look.
Lip enhancement with NP Radhika
Radhika Patel, DNP, APN, is a doctorally prepared Nurse Practitioner specializing in medical and cosmetic dermatology. Radhika comes to our practice with many years of experience performing injectable treatments, with further clinical training under the mentorship of Dr. Wise. NP Radhika offers lip enhancement procedures at the Wise Med Spa in Wayne, as well as Wise Center's remote location at DePasquale The Spa in Morris Plains, NJ.
How Many Treatments Will I Need for Lip Enhancement?
Patients only need one lip filler treatment, but the results will fade over time. The body naturally breaks down the filler used to enhance your lips, and as such, the longevity of lip filler treatments varies per patient. Retreatment will be needed over time, although the longevity of lip filler typically increases with each future treatment.*
What to expect during the treatment?
Lip filler treatments are very short, requiring about fifteen to thirty minutes, depending upon what you hope to achieve. The area is numbed beforehand, either topically or with nerve blocks, and Pro-Nox (Nitrous Oxide) is available upon request, to ensure patient comfort.
What happens after lip filler injections?
As with any dermal filler injections, it is typical to have some bruising and swelling. Since everyone's body is different, it's difficult to predict whether either will occur, but both typically subside on their own within a few days, and the lips will settle into their new form within about two weeks. Full after-care instructions will be provided during your visit to the Wise Center for Plastic Surgery.
Restylane Kysse is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler engineered specifically to add volume and plumpness to the lips. It can also help to minimize vertical lip lines, improve the appearance of creases around the mouth, and enhance lip hues and texture.
Approved by the FDA for lip augmentation, Kysse is formulated with a proprietary technology called XpresHAn, which combats the signs of aging in the lips without interfering with your natural facial expressions and movements. In other words, with Restylane Kysse, your lips will look flawless whether you are laughing, frowning, crying, squinting, or kissing. The smooth gel integrates seamlessly with your smile.
Results with Restylane Kysse last up to one year. There is no downtime, with patients returning to their normal activities immediately after their sessions. The most common side effects with Kysse are swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection sites, but these symptoms usually abate within a few days at most.
Dr. Wise and NP Radhika are expert injectors when it comes to lip treatments, having performed hundreds of lip filler injection treatments in this year alone. After a simple procedure with either Dr. Wise or NP Radhika, 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.*
Both providers are also experts in the use of Hyaluronidase, a dissolving agent for hyaluronic acid, and they often correct results that patients have had with other providers which they are not fully satisfied with. Wise Center for Plastic Surgery is here to help you love your lips!

I have spent months doing research to find the best doctor that would give me the results I wanted. I went in for face fillers & lip injections and I am SO glad I chose Dr. Wise. He took the time to listen to my wants and needs to give me the desired look I wanted to achieve. He was very thorough and helped me understand any questions I had.

I could not be happier with the results he gave me, it looks very natural and PERFECT. Thank you so much Dr. Wise!!
