Philosophy: How Is Dr. Kolstad Different?

Dr. Kolstad is double board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon.  His entire practice is dedicated to enhancement of the face and neck. All fillers are the same but the results are not. One of our most common procedures is lip augmentation and artistic lip enhancements is Dr. Kolstad’s specialty. There is an art to lip injectables. Standard applications of lip fillers can lead to over inflated results which do not create the desired visual impact.

Just finding the cheapest lip injectables in San Diego does not always lead to the best deal. Why would you trust your face to anyone who is not an expert?

About San Diego Lip Augmentation

Very fine lips can be enhanced using lip filler. Smaller lips are more complicated to fill than average sized or larger lips. The smaller the lip the more precision and technique required to achieve a balanced outcome without contour irregularities. Very fine lips tend to bruise and swell more after treatment.

What are the best fillers for small lips:

Dr. Kolstad prefers to use very soft fillers in smaller lips like Volbella, Vollure, or Restylane Silk. Traditional fillers like Juvederm or Restylane can feel textural or lumpy.

* Individual Results May Vary.


Whether you were born with large, voluptuous lips or had them enhanced at our San Diego plastic surgery office, only you and Dr. Kolstad will know. When performed correctly lip augmentation should be so natural that even other plastic surgeons cannot tell which lips were “done” and which were not.

What are the best fillers for average sized lips:

Dr. Kolstad’s current favorite injectable for lips is Vollure.  Vollure is very soft and his a high tissue integration. Traditional fillers like Juvederm or Restylane can feel lumpy. Many patients describe the feeling as a “Juvederm ball” or jelly bean in their lips.

*Individual Results May Vary.


Many times even full lips can get a boost from a little extra volume. Full lips require a conservative approach because it can be easy to make them too big and unnatural. Dr. Kolstad is known for natural results and does not let anyone go overboard on lip filler.

What are the best fillers for full lips:

Most gel  or HA fillers work well in full lips.  Dr. Kolstad’s current favorite injectable for lips is Vollure.  Vollure is very soft and his a high tissue integration. It tends to last longer than Juvederm or Restylane.  If you have a preference for a specific filler Dr. Kolstad can usually accommodate your preference.

*Individual Results May Vary.

Worried About Duck Lips?

One of the biggest concerns we hear from our patients are over sized, over done, weird looking duck lips. Many spas and clinics in San Diego will inject 2 to 3 syringes into the lips creating unnatural results. Dr. Kolstad tends to be on the conservative side believing the most important outcome is a natural result.



Dr. Kolstad is known as a “fixer.” This patient requested correction of asymmetric results after a lip augmentation from a different provider. The uneven distribution of Juvederm resulted in the upper lip being larger on the left then the right. A cleft in the lower lip resulted in dental show and her teeth being visible at rest.

The skin over your lips is extremely thin. Uneven application of fillers in the wrong locations can lead to lumpy, palpable knots. Filler placed into your lips should only be done by a highly trained, highly qualified practitioner.

*Individual Results May Vary.


Something you will not find at our office are unnatural, over-inflated, duck lips, sausage lips or balloon lips.

If it doesn’t look natural, it doesn’t look good. Period. If you have questions about lip augmentation, please contact Dr. Kolstad at his La Jolla (San Diego) Facial Plastic Surgery office. We serve men and women in La Jolla, Del Mar, San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas and Southern California.
