Full, luscious, kissable lips are the hallmark of a feminine appearance, and very often the envy of many transwomen. But what one is not born with can be attained cosmetically through the magic of lip augmentation! There are several different approaches to this procedure, and Dr. Satterwhite and Dr. Gurujal will work with you to find the best option for your aesthetic goals.

Dermal fillers and injectables

Here the lips are enhanced with fillers, which beautifully plump and volumize the lip contours. There is no downtime and few side effects. Results are temporary.

Fat transfer

During the fat transfer process, unwanted fat from other areas of the body can be harvested, purified, and then injected into the lips for a more robust and alluring smile. Once healing is complete, results are long-lasting.

Lip implants

Lip implants come in a host of different shapes, sizes and textures and can be customized to your unique anatomy.

    • Improvement in the lips’ color

    Who is a good lip augmentation candidate?

    MTF patients who are unhappy with their shape or size of their lips may choose to undergo lip augmentation, provided they are in good mental and physical health, do not smoke, and have reasonable expectations for their results.

    What can I anticipate in terms of my recovery?

    There are several techniques used for lip augmentation, so recovery times will vary. If dermal fillers are used, there is virtually no downtime. With fat transfer and lip implants, it will take longer to heal from the swelling, typically up to 4-6 weeks.

    Lip augmentation can be performed in several different ways, including with dermal fillers and injectables, with fat transfer, or with implants, so the cost will vary according to which approach you decide upon.
