Lip Enhancement [ Lip augmentation, lip plumpers, lip surgery ]
The secret to a younger, pouty lip may lie in looking to cosmetic lip enhancement to restore a fuller shape to your lips. Due to age and other factors, our lips show signs of aging like loss of volume, wrinkling around the lips and a blurry lip line.
The following are some of the more common ways to address lip enhancement:
- Lip implants
- Fat transfer
- Fillers such as Restylane (FDA approved), Juvéderm or Perlane (off-label uses)
- Or Laser lip procedures
Each has its own pros and cons, risks and post-treatment care that you should discuss with your doctor.
