I have a full bottom lip and a pencil-thin upper lip.

Question:
I have a full bottom lip and a pencil-thin upper lip. I would like them evened out by having lip augmentation just on the upper lip. What is your usual procedure for this?

Answer:
We would likely suggest using an injectable filler such as Restylane or Juvederm to accomplish this initially and perhaps long term.  If you are pleased with the results there are lip augmentation procedures available to provide permanent results.  We use the permalip implant for this.  It is an office procedure where a small incision is created at the corner of the mouth and an implant is placed into the lip.
