I would like shapelier lips without surgery. Are silicone injections the only option for lip augmentation?
Silicone injections are certainly not the only option for lip augmentation and I would not recommend them. I have personally seen irreparable complications from silicone injections even in the most expert hands. For a non-surgical option, even though it needs to be repeated, I would recommend injection with hyaluronic acid (Juvederm, Restylane) Fat can also be used and might provide a more long-lasting result, but the results are variable.
