I’m embarrassed of my ugly thin lips and I’d like to get something done to make them look better. What can be done to give my lips a sexier and healthier look?
The usual treatment for thin lips is injecting of hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm. This is an easy procedure and patients love the results, but they will wear off with time, 6-12 months. Surgical implants can also be used which provides a permanent result through the use of a very simple in-office procedure. The results look natural, but the implant can be felt if the lip is grasped with the thumb and index finger. Other surgical lip lifts may also be used, but scarring may prevent this from being the procedure of choice.
