The extension was announced shortly before kick-off, and the 23-year-old Germany international promptly proved his worth by opening the scoring with a poacher's finish.
With just 10 minutes on the clock, Werner hooked the ball in at the far post after Yussuf Poulsen had flicked it on at a corner.
Poulsen appeared to have decided a tense game in the home side's favour with a sumptuous volley ten minutes from time.
Leipzig, though, had to survive six nervy minutes of injury time after Goncalo Paciencia pulled one back for Frankfurt in the 89th minute.
