I Got a Lip Implant and I Still Want my Lips to Be Bigger, What else Can I Do?

I got the largest permalip implant and I still want my top lip bigger with more volume at the cupids bow. Can another implant be placed on top of the one to achieve this? or should I get filler to have this done? I chose the implant because it is more permanent, but if I cant achieve this with an implant, I will use a filler.

Another implant can be placed on top of that.. Another option might be to use silicone

in a conservative manner.

I prefer using Alloderm Lip Implants that provide more volume than silastic or saline filled (gore-tex coated) lip implants IMHO.

Lip augmentation

Lip augmentation can be done very nicely with fillers like Perlane or juvederm..  I am not a big fan of some of the permanent implants.

I cannot think of a reason why adding a filler to your lip would be contraindicated.
