Lip enhancement is a procedure which increases the size of the lips utilizing surgery or injections. Both lips can be done at the same time, or the upper or lower lip can be done individually. Depending on the type of material used, the results of the treatment can be temporary or permanent. It usually requires one simple procedure to achieve larger, fuller lips.
Several cosmetic techniques can be utilized to achieve fuller lips. Choosing the best procedure will be dependent on your overall health, your desired results, and several other factors that your doctor will discuss with you.
There are a number of enhancement techniques involving injections of a facial filler or utilizing implants. Common options used for lip enhancements include:
Artecoll injections (synthetic material)
Autologen injections (patient’s own collagen from another area)
Dermalogen injections (donor material)
Fascia injections (donor material)
HylaForm injections (similar to natural hyaluronic acid)
Patient’s own fat from another area of the body
Restylane® injections (similar to natural hyaluronic acid)
