I would like shapelier lips. I am not interested in surgery at this time, but I am leery of silicone injections. Are silicone injections the best method at this time for lip augmentation?
I do not recommend silicone injections for lip augmentation. The permanence of the result is appealing, but the risks in my opinion out-way the benefits. Unfortunately, I have seen patients with terrible results from silicone including grossly enlarged and nodular lips the only treatment of which is surgical reduction. I would stick with absorbable fillers for lip injection such as Juvederm or Restylane or consider a permanent, but reversible implant such as permalip.
