I would like both my lower and upper lip enlarged and made more shapely. How do you suggest I go about doing this? I mean, should I try injectable fillers first before I try surgery? My goal is full lips all of the time.
If you have never attempted any procedure to enhance your lips, we would recommend that you try a filler such as Juvederm or Restylane first. See if you like it before doing something more permanent. You may decide that filler provides you with excellent results and that you don’t mind repeating the procedure. If you are looking for something more permanent, then a lip implant may be your choice. The latest implants for lips are called permalip. They are silicone gel implants for the lip. They are placed in the office under local anesthesia and take about 30 minutes to place. Once implanted they are permanent unless removed.
