Should You Get Lip Injections?

As new fillers and techniques for lip augmentation are introduced to the market, it can become more and more difficult to find the right option for you. “The techniques with the most natural results are best,” says Colleyville, TX, facial plastic surgeon Yadro Ducic, MD. “These include hyaluronic acid fillers, fat grafting and a lip lift [a procedure where the upper lip is shortened].” So which is best for you? “Patients that have an adequate amount of red areas of the lips showing do the best with any type of augmentation; if not enough red lip is showing, it might be best to consider a lip lift procedure first,” Dr. Ducic adds.
