This patient’s lips were quite thin. Fat injection has filled them out, adding to their femininity. A submental lipectomy was done simultaneously. Fat injection is the "gold standard" for lip augmentation because it is natural, large amounts may be used, and in most cases at least some will remain viable and provide long-term benefit, as opposed to most other fillers which will dissolve.
