Having full, plump lips is often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, there are many ways to enhance them. Lip injections using natural or synthetic fillers can keep your lips plump for months at a time. Lip implants and other surgical procedures can also be performed for a more permanent solution. Other options include lip lifts, vermillion (lip) advancement and permanent makeup. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful lip enhancement and are pleased with the results.
When to Consider Lip Enhancement:
As patients age, they will not only lose volume in their lips, but they will also experience lengthening of their upper lip. Fat grafting and a lip lift can make a dramatic difference, without looking “fake”. In younger patients filler as well as fat can add volume to augment the current shape and volume.
