LIP AUGMENTATION OPTIONS
I’d like to get some sort of procedure to add some volume to my lips but I’m not sure which would be better for me, injectables or an implant. Can you describe some of the pros and cons of each?
I prefer injectibles and surgical procedures to augment lips as opposed to any implants. The problem with implants in the lip is that the lip skin/mucosal lining is very thin and the lips are very mobile and implants can erode through and get infected easily. Injectibles like Restylane and Juvederm are very well tolerated, give great results and have very few risks. More permanent results can be achieved with non implant surgical lip augmentation procedures such as vermillion advancement and subnasal lip lift.
