Lip augmentation is a cosmetic treatment to give you fuller and more attractive lips. It is usually performed by injecting the lips with a substance known as a filler.
Modern fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body. Collagen or fat may also be used, but hyaluronic acid fillers have proven to be safer, last longer and have better results. Besides the filler, the injection may also contain lidocaine, an anesthetic to improve comfort.
Your doctor will discuss your reasons for undergoing the procedure and how realistic your expectations are before deciding whether this procedure is right for you.
