Who is a candidate: Any patient with thin lips or who is seeking a more youthful appearance can be a candidate for fuller lips.
Procedure: Lip augmentation is usually a long-lasting procedure. Hyaluronic acids are most commonly used, but there are other filler materials. A small needle is used to inject a substance into your lips to make them fuller. Results usually last about eight to ten months, depending on the product used.
Healing: Recovery is usually a few days to allow for any bruising or swelling to subside.
